In the Jan 8, 1748 Ingenheim marriage record (Catholic) of Joannis Neufeld <"pater"> to Maria Magdalena Hoffman, they are identified as follows: HE the legitimate son of JN <"avus"> "civis in Inferiore Otterbach" [=Latin for Niederotterbach] and of Catherina _____ , "p.m. conjugum"; and SHE the legitimate daughter of Andreas Hofmann, "assessoris [?] judicis hujatis" and of Magdalena ____ "p.m., conjugum".The marriage was performed by Fr. J. Orpheus, S.J.
My records show a FHC Ancesry File (computer) entry for a Julianne (sp?) Neufeld, born ____, and christened on June 20, 1755 at Ingenheim (I have not viewed the original documents).I also link this Julianne to Georgius Jacobus Becker (and thanks for the added Valentinus Schweikert connection).
When Julianne's (and my JN <"filius">'s) mother died on February 18, 1762, Julianne would have been about 6 years old (and my JN 10); their mom, Maria Magdalena Hoffmann, is buried in Ingenheim "in cemetorio hujata".
Some possible Ingenheim references for you:FHC microfilms #400478 (marriahes); #400479 (marriages & baptisms); and #400480 (family book).
Its good to hear from an Illinois cousin, even if we had to go back to Germany early in the XVIII century to do so.
