Well, it's astonishing how many Weilbachers there can be in a tiny burg of (nowadays) 400 people, and not directly related to each other.But I'm sure that you are right - they are related by a common ancestor a few generations back, perhaps Johan Melchior and Sofie Ritter.The same names keep recurring but as if they were all put into a paper bag, shaken up and poured out. For instance: my George's son Jacob only had 5 daughters (that I know of), Amalie, Sophie, Mary, Hilda and Olga.Yours had umpteen kids and none with these names.Therefore - different Jacob.
I am only indirectly related to the Weilbachers. My great grandfather's brother, Eduard, had a son, Henry, who married Anna Christine Weilbacher, daughter of August Weilbacher.August was the first teacher (my great grandfather, Julius Schutze was the 2nd) of the German Free School, which is headquarters of the German-Texan Heritage Society.A granddaughter of this Schutze/Weilbacher union is a 3rd cousin of mine and a good friend.She was the one who gave me the Weilbacher information I have. I think I told you in my 1st posting about the historical marker dedication that is the reason for the Weilbacher info I am doing.
However, if your present search in Bonfeld turns up anything that connects our Weilbachers, please let me know.I will check the site from time to time for messages. Good luck in finding your grandparents! Anita
