Thanks Deborah. I must have miswritten my message to you, because I meant to say I am not directly related to a Wahlen. My ancestor George Joseph Zenner had an older brother, John E., who married Mary Wahlen. The parents of John E. Zenner and George Joseph Zenner were Franz Zenner and Maria Strauch, both b. Wahlen. Parents of Franz Zenner were Philipp Zenner and Elisabetha Koch; paternal grandparents, Peter Zenner and Margaretha Freichel; maternal grandparents, Franz Koch and Susanna Klauck. Parents of Maria Strauch were Nicola Strauch and Margareth Engel; maternal grandparents Peter Joseph Engel and Katharina Schmidt.
