Do you know where your Sparrenberger family came from? Mine...William John Sparrenberger b. 3 Sep 1809, Uffhofen, Germany.Married Catherina Headrick and had the following children: Elisabeth b. 1831, Catherina Elisab. b. 1833, Heinrich b. 1835, Elisabeth b. 1837, Christian b. 1839, and Johann b. 1841
Uffhofen was located in the region of the pre-1945 state of Hesse known as Rhenish Hesse.After World War II and the break-up of the hugh state of Prussia into 3 states, Uffhofen is now located in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz) Uffhofen is no longer an independent village.About 30 years ago, it was annexed by the nearby town of Flonheim. So today, Uffhofen is a section of Flonheim and located about 20 miles southwest of the city of Mainz.
My Sparrenberger's came to the US 12 Dec 1853. Most settled in Manhattan, NY and the rest in Benton Co. IA
I give you this information due to the fact that I believe most of the Sparrenberger's come from the same region and there maybe a connection....Let me know...Thanks, Brian
