I recently wrote to the city of Eppingen, Germany, as that is possibly where my ancestral Frederick Iseminger came from in 1751. I got a response that there are no longer any people with those surnames but that "your ancestors come from Simmern, Mosbach, Neckarsteinach and Oberowisheim," if my Babblefish.com translation is accurate. They also sent a couple pages from some book of marriage records (they did not provide the book name) that lists on page 170: "11.6.1748: Freidrich Eisenmanger, von Mosbach und Maria Margarete Nollert, geb. in Simmern 22.6.1730. 2 kdr.: Johan Michael geb 27.7.1749 - Jacob geb. 25.2.1751." This would seem to fit with other information that the Frederick Iseminger in Frederick Co., Md, who died in 1775, was married to a Margaret/Margaretha, whose last name was possibly Nollert/Nollart. What is curious is that of the 11 children most of us have listed in America for Frederick and Margaret, there is no Michael or Jacob, though those names show up in later generations, but they were common names back then. So, is this our immigrant Frederick or another one? Did they lose their first two children?
The other page (441) they sent was a marriage record for: "13.1.1722 luth.: Hans Georg Nollert, (So des Johann Georg N., Backermeister zu Nekarsteinach), Backermeister, Stadtwachtmeister und Elisabeth Kebler, (To des Hans Michael K., Backermeister zu Oberowisheim). 5 Kdr.: Johanna Maria Margarete, Anna Margarete Elisabeth geb. 29.11.1734, Johann Philipp geb. luth. 21.7.1737, Maria Elisabeth geb. luth. 26.1.1740, Catharina Elisabeth geb. luth. 24.9.1742." I am not sure of the date of the first daughter, as that could be the Margarete born in 1730 and married to Freidrich.
Anyone have any additional information or ideas about this connection?
