Christoph KAESS & Eleonora (Helena) SCHNELL, Allendorf/Lumda, Hessen

Hi,

Some time ago I got wonderful help in finding my Mueller & Fortbach families. I'm back because I have a problem with my 4th greatgrandparents on the Mueller side. I am trying to find the birth place and date and parents of Eleonora (Helena) SCHNELL.

I have information that was found and translated for me from an LDS film for Allendorf/Lumda, Hessen

Death record transcription/translation reads: "1815-Helena KAESS, nee SCHNELL, wife of the citizen and master shoemaker Christoph KAESS-6 Jan (death) and 8 Jan (burial)- age given as 73 years- [name of place from which she comes is not clear, perhaps Landart]."

Their first child was born about 1773.

Christoph and Eleonora (Helena) lived in Allendorf/Lumda. I have birth records for their children, but no record of their marriage in Allendorf/Lumda. I cannot find a place near Allendorf that sounds like Landart in order to look for the marriage record, which I hope will give info about Eleonora (Helena) and also help clarify the parents of Christoph. Can someone help please?

Many thanks for any help!

Helen
