Thank you very much Bob and Gaby!
How you can read that writing is amazing to me. This gives me lots of information to follow up on and research.

One question: Why do you both say the birth child's name is Louise. All I see is Sophie. Sophie Mayer is what is on her ship record and all US records. I'm hoping this is the right ancestor of our US family.

So, Andreas Mayer is a worker/laborer for Schonbach estate or land area. 'Gutsherrschaft' - the (interesting, to say the least) method or system of labor management.

And, Engelbert Eisenmann is a master saddler.

I am new to all this and find it fascinating! Thank you again for your help.
