my great great grandfather John Stoudt was born in Baden Baden Germany and his wife Catherina (or Catherine) was born there also. 1860 census have them in Pittsburgh PA in the 4 ward. He is 30 yrs old and a carpenter. At that time they have 3 children:George, Joseph and Elizabeth. Housekeeper was Hester Anne Yost. I am stuck at this point going back farther. Don't know if this will help you any.
