Re: Other Bauknecht -Herrmann weddings
Some additional information about Anton BAUKNECHT and Luitgard SCHRAMM.As you may or may not know, the original research on this family was done by Fr. Victor Feser in the early 1960's in his spare time while he was studying at Universität München.
For some reason, he saw Luitgard's last name in the records as SCHRAMM.I have found her name three times in Hundsbach marriage records, for three of her sons, Jacob, Sebastian and Andreas.It looks to me as her name is LEHEMAN.
I finally found Anton and Luitgards marriage record in Wittichen, which is about 30 miles south of Hundsbach.They were married in Wittichen, 25 January 1739.His parents are given as Jacob BAUKNECHT and Margaretha KÜNSTLER. Luitgard's last name is given as LEHMAN.Her parents were Thomas LEHMAN and Anna BÜHLER.(FHC Film 907185.)
The marriage record states that Luitgard was from Schenkenzell, which is a small village just a few kms south of Wittichen.I have found a ton of LEHMAN/LEHEMAN's in the Schenkenzel church records (FHL Film 904276.)
The majority of the 11 baptism's records for children of Thomas and Anna give his surname as LEHEMAN.Luitgard's baptism record is not immediately found in the records.I do however believe I found her record in December 1720.It is heavily obscured by ink smears.For the parents you can read the fathers surname as LEHEMAN, plus her mothers full name.The infants names is heavily obscured.It looks like MARIA LUI (the rest obscured).The date is obscured but 1720 and December are visible.
I did find Anton BAUKNECHT's baptism record.It is a little difficult to read, but it appears that he was baptized 2 March 1711 in Wittichen.His parents were married in Wittichen, 31 October 1694.The record states that Margaretha KÜNSTLER was from Schapbach, a short distance east of Wittichen, and today part of Bad Rippoldsau-Schapbach.
Franziska SCHILLE, who married Anton & Luitgard's son Sebastian BAUKNECHT, was from Holzward, a small village near Bad Rippoldsau.
Katherina EGNER, who married their son Jacob BAUKNECHT was from Kappelwindeck, which is a ways to the north of Bad Rippoldsau-Schapbach.
It is interesting to note that the two HERRMANN sisters (Franziska & Elisabetha) who married the BAUKNECHT cousins, were daughters of Lorenz HERRMANN, who was baptized 15 Jul 1741 in Schapbach.His parents Georg HERRMANN and Lucia SPRINGMAN were married 9 February 1739 in Bad Rippoldsau.The marriage record is a little confused but seems to say that Georg was from Tös (the record actually gives it as "Thös",) and Lucia from Schenkenzell.
Lucia was the daughter of Urban SPRINGMANN and Ursula KILSIG.She was baptized 16 December 1708 in Schenkenzell.I think I have found the baptism record for George (Joannes Georg) in Schenkenzell.8 April 1705.Son of Joannes HERMMANN and Anna Maria ARMBRUSTER.Joannes and Anna Maria were married in Schenkenzell 20 July 1704.Joannes was from Rossberg, which was a sub-parish of Wittichen, and Anna Maria from Ober Wolfach, which is a little east of Wittichen and Schenkenzell, and south of Bad Rippoldsau and Schapbach.
At one time all these parished were part of Kreis Offenberg.
