Nice to meet you. My grandfather was born on May 13, 1900 in Nutwood, IL. His parents came over from Baden, Baden. They had approximately 16 children. His father, I believe, was named Albert. I'll have to look again at the information I have. Do you have a Fortunata Ferenbach in the late 1700's, or early 1800's that had an illegitimate child? I found this interesting fact while searching and thought it might be a recognizable link. At least it appears that the child was illegitimate as there is a baptismal record but no marriage record. Unless, of course it may have been lost, or she married somewhere far from home.
I'm very happy to be corresponding with the Ferenbach line, as I was very close to my grandfather and miss him terribly.
