|this via eMail from Mani Hertlein in Weihenzell, Bavaria:
yesterday and the day before yesterday I spend some time for
investigations in the State-Archives in Nuremberg and in the
church-library of Obernzenn. Well I found and see the original document
when your anchestors leave Germany. And I see the original-sign of your
Anchestors.And I see a marriage-certificate from 1696.
The emigration was registred: Zellhöfer, Anna Margaretha
(widow of a farmer) wirth 3 children Georg Leonhard Christina Eva Eva
Maria and Johann Michael (was marked after the original with a pencil) The
emigration was published in the "Intilligenzblatt für
Mittelfranken 1846 B Nr. 25 Sp 575-6/24.III.46" (means maybe 24.
March 1846) Note: Northamerica BA Uffenheim Nr. 2130 Regierung von
Mittelfranken. KDI 1900, Nr. 5023 Zellhöfer Johann Michael
born 4. Aug. 1825 unmarried, from Brachbach to Northamerica 1853,
Regierung von Mittelfranken, Kammer des Innern, KDI 1900 Nr. 5023 BA
Uffenheim, Nrf. 2324
and a other Zellhöfer I found:
Zellhöfer Anna Maria with 6 children, widow of a farmer (the chidren
are not by the name) Urphertshofen, LG Leutershausen Intelligenzblatt für
Mittelfranken 1840 B Nr. 48 Sp. 956-7 11.VI40 Note: Northamerica
I think, your J.M. Z is gone to US in 1853, her mother and sisters and
brothers go in 1846. This is was I found and mean.
Further I have the history of Brachbach Nr. 7 (just the dates), cannot
found the letter when Brachbach 7 was sold to an Eberlein. I have some
Photos of Brachbach Nr. 7 today I have a line from your Johann Michael Z.
back to a Hans Z., * 1670, married with Margaretha Landshuter I have some
copys of church-record
Pleas give me some days, I´m very busy. I cannot found my Scanner and
other things because I build my Office new. A hard work... To you have a
complete pedigree from your Johann Michael Z. back to Sebald Z.?
Have a nice day in your beautiful AZ.
