I am searching for information on my anchestors Herb.
My first question: When and where my Great-Great-Great-Grandfather Franz Josef Herb was really born? And did he have more children?
The second question: Did my Great-Great-Grandfather Johann Jakob Herb have more children?
Here are the facts I have:
1. My Great-Great-Great-Grandfather Franz Josef Herb:
Franz Josef Herb, whose profession was bricklayer, was born around 1759 probably in the Allgaeu region. He was a catholic. He married Katharina Sara Schweickart in Leimen near Heidelberg on April 19, 1784 (no children known). Later he married Susanna Katharina Lorenz (catholic, baptized December 28, 1771 in Handschuhsheim near Heidelberg, diedDecember 30, 1838 in St. Ilgen near Heidelberg) in Handschuhsheim on February 2, 1796. Their son Johann Jakob is my great-great-grandfather. I don't know any other children of the family. Franz Josef Herb died in St. Ilgen on February 25, 1819.
Franz Josef Herb had a brother called Anton, who married Eva Barbara Audacher in Nussloch near Heidelberg on February 14, 1792.
2. My Great-Great-Grandfather Johann Jakob Herb:

He married Elisabetha Krafft (born March 7, 1812 in St. Ilgen, baptized catholic there March 8, 1812, died March 16, 1850 in St. Ilgen) in St. Ilgen on October 8, 1838. Johann Jakob Herb died in St. Ilgen on February 24, 1864. Their son Johannes Herb is my great-grandfather. I don't know, if the family had any other children.
