Tornau, Christian August
Christian August Tornau (some sources record Tornow) was born 24 March 1736 in Lanzig near Rügenwalde. He was an ordained Lutheran pastor.
The Rev. Christian August Tornow served the congregations of Grimm (1767-1780) and Bettinger (1780-1791). The parish register in Sarepta records that he relocated to Sarepta on 24 January 1789 from Bettinger.
He apparently died in 1791, but it is unclear whether he died in Bettinger or in Sarepta.
