Saw your message as I am trying to do some research on the family history of Wachter. My father's mother was the daughter of Christian Heinrich and Karoline Gottlieb (Kern) Wachter. The parents of Karoline are Christian Simon and Johanne Kern and Christians parents names were Karoline Fsisterar and Karl Wachter. I am hoping to get further but having trouble with the German sites as most are in the German language. If you have any more details I would like to hear from you.
