Hi Cathy,

Christoph Stoepel has a wonderful surname distribution program that takes the names in the German phonebook and plots their concentrations; thus, giving perhaps regions or areas where the family name is concentrated and likely their origin.

It appears that Katherine's husband was from Kirchheimbolanden and since it appears that she married shortly after her arrival - she too may be from the same area and it looks like the Heiselbetz name occurs in that area too.
