Maribeth, I may just now be coming across your query. You are a descendant of Adam ENGARD from Rossdorf near Darmstadt in Hesse, Germany. I believe that your Adam and my Philip were "cousins" but a couple of generations apart. I don't know as much about Philip (in Germany) as I do your Adam. You should find lots of info on the internet for your line.
