today I found out that Engelbert Franz (1) SCHMIERS  was born 1788 in Rheine, Westphalia. and I found many SCHMIERS before 1870 in Westphalia was living. The oldest (single) name was Margareta SCHMIERS, shie have marriedged an Hans Caspar KNOPP at 11 Feb 1696 Murr., Neckarkreis, Wuerttemberg.
The next was Anna Elisabeth SCHMIERS. She married an Jurgen Henrich GREIWE in Sankt Clements, Telge stadt, Wastfalen, Preussen at 11. Okt. 1742.
