Anna Maria Muller's grandmother was Anna Elisabeth Nabinger. I don't have any connection between Anna Elisabeth and the other Nabinger's in the area. Has one been found and verified?
Looking through the history books, I don't see anything right off that would have caused them to immigrate (war, famine, etc.) in 1865/1866. There was a civil uprising in the Pfalz known as the "Hambacher Fest" in 1832. There were reprecussions for the citizins afterwards where the Bavarian government repressed people and apprehended some. I don't know if this lasted into the 1860's though. In general, people immigrated in the 19th century for political reasons and for work.
