I am looking for any information on a Esslinger family in Herbolzheim (near Neuden), Baden, Germany.I've been looking at the German church film of Herbolzheim (FHL Film #1049349) and found a Sebastian KOHLER married 31 Aug 1688 to Maria Barbara ESSLINGER.She is probably his 2nd wife.
My line is from their son, Joseph KOHLER (bapt 17 March 1707) who married Barbara RHON/RHOEN on 2 Aug 1740 Herbolzheim.
Maria Barbara ESSLINGER (bapt. 28 Oct 1663 Herbolzheim - d. 29 Aug 1728 age 63 Herbolzheim) is d/o Matthias ESSLINGER ( bca. 1634 - d. 7 June 1720 age 86 Herbolzheim) and wife Margaretha ENGLERT/ENGLER.
There are a number of ESSLINGER/ESLINGER families in Herbolzheim in the 1600-1700's.
Any additional data would be most welcome, Thanks, Brent Baughn Bbaughn@aol.com
