I am researching Kiesling, Wunschel and Zenk families that came from Bavaria. The records that were handed down to me say they were from a town called Fartof, but of course there is no such town. I imagine it was spelled phonetically. When they came to America in 1882 they stayed with a Wunschel family in Iowa, where they settled. I know that this Wunschel family is from a town called Vordorf. The names are John (Johann) Kiesling, and his wife, Brigita Wunschel. John's mother's maiden name was Zenk. Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Kay W.
