Note
From Maggi Shaw (http://genforum.genealogy.com/pechotsch/messages/3.html) Eric was a pianist who studied under Schwarenka and he served in the army during WW1. There was a brief mention in a periodical of a PECHOTSCH who was a Music Teacher in Australia in the 1920's. (aka Eric Mareo, aka Eric Curtis) though he mysteriously does not appear in NSW records. Eric died in New Zealand in about 1960 having served a term of life imprisonment for his wife's murder. Eric was at the centre of an (in)famous murder trial in NZ in the 1930s. Basically Eric was (twice) sentenced to death for killing his wife, Thelma.
Note
