Reinwald 1798 Census
The Reinwald census of 1798 shows Herzogs, Kerbers and Reimers as the original settlers of this small village. This verifies the hometown for my maternal ancestors as far as I am concerned. The oral history, death notice documentation, and ship manifests all match back to Reinwald. Now I need to fill the gap from my grandfather and great grandfather back to the orignal settlers. Again, I am in awe of the names and how each generation repeats the names. I am extremely impressed how in the United States, some of the names have survived despite 3 generations.
