My gg-grandparents from Kaifenheim were Joseph/Josef LAUBENTHAL (b. 1811) and (Anna) Katharina HAMMES (b. 1810).Joseph was the son of Johann LAUBENTHAL (baptized Duengenheim 1776) & Katharina MAY (also from Duengenheim). Anna Katharina was daughter ofDaniel HAMMES and Elizaabetha WELSCH.Have no record so far of siblings for either Joseph or Anna Katharina.Thanks to researchers in Germany (Albert Emmerich, Ursula Buchholz) i have my LAUBENTHAL & HAMMES direct lineage going back at least 3 generations. I'm thinking our respective LAUBENTHALs are at least cousins, if not siblings.
