My greatgrandfather is Christian Gottlieb Elbel.I decend from is son, Albert Frederich by his second wife Katherine Seekatz Wehe. My father is Clarence Elbel.
Erdman who came with Gottlieb is a cousin according to an Elbel also decended from Johanne Georg Erdman Elbel.
The Elbel line lived in Grobau, near Plauen in Voghtland Soxony for at least six generations prior.ca 1640.
John Bormann of New Branfels gave me most of this information.
Have you been able to contact Arnold Elbel in Germany? Grobau is about 40 miles north of his Tirschenreuth.
Jacques (Jack) Elbel.
I have no known connection the the French Elbels.
