Hello Kathleen, Your Johann Balthasar hails from the area from which I come. I came across your query looking for a Johann Kimpel b. ca. 1821 who came from Stockhausen to the US in 1841. Stockhausen is just a few miles from Frischborn, both are in the Lauterbach District. The Frischborn church records are available from the LDS, so the quickest way to find out who is who, is to order the film and just look for anyone with the name Kimpel born around that time of Balthasar's birth. It should list the name of his parents and the sponsor -- that's usually who the child was named after. I'll run a check to see if I can find your Joh. Balthasar on any passenger list. Where did he settle? State/Co/Twp?
