August was the brother of my Great Grandmother, Antionette (Antonia) Lichtenberger.There were 11 childlren in their family, born in Germershein, Pfalz County, Bayern, Germany. They were christened in the Roman Catholic church there. You may contact me directly for more information.
I have found the names used in the Lichtenberger families were repeated each generation.Also, brothers used the same names for their children; making for confusion when doing research.Ludwig/Louis is a good example.August did have a brother Louis born about 1857.There are also other Louis Lichtenbergers I have found in various sources. If you have any more information on your Ludwig, perhaps I might be able to help you.
