Johann Peter Oesterling lived in Michelbach, Hess Darmastadt, Germany.
His sons later immigrated to the United States of America after he was murdered.
“er wurde von aus dem Gefängnis entsprungenen Räubern ermordet”
Which translates roughly to:
“he was murdered by robbers sprung (that had escaped) from jail”
