"This blacksmith actually existed in the last century. It was the journeyman blacksmith Friedrich Marks from the ancient church village of Rehme - today a district of Bad Oeynhausen.
This journeyman blacksmith only had a small cottage and a few acres of land. And because there was already enough blacksmithing in his homeland, he didn't deserve the salt in the soup. In order to earn his bread now, the young craftsman climbed up into the Wiehen Mountains one morning and helped with the work in the quarries.
But the way home was long and he liked the solitude of the forest. So he stayed more and more often at night in the rickety tree hut, where he made a modest bed for himself.
He had brought his tools of the trade with him, and he even lugged up a small anvil one morning. When he later built a small forest smithy out of quarry stones and set up a real workshop, the farmers from Häverstädt - today a district of Minden - sometimes even came to him with their farm horses.
Time was running out. The beard grew to his chest, the hair hung over his shoulder. He already looked wild, the wood smith from Wiehen. So it is not surprising that people gradually forgot his name and only called him the "wild blacksmith".
The years passed. The “wild blacksmith” became the “old blacksmith”. One morning he fell while walking around a quarry. He was found and recovered once more. But his life clock was up. In the same winter he died in his hermit hut. The farmers brought his body to the valley, where he was buried in the Rehm cemetery. "
