I'm reviewing the new microfilm of the St. Stephens Evangelical Church of Buffalo, NY. In it I found the following:
Marriages - 1853
On 28 August 1853, Joseph Jaekle married Agnes Schlenker. Witnesses were Johannes Hilfinger and Barbara Schlenker.
I am quite confident that all of these individuals are from Schwenningen, Wurttemberg.
I am not related to this line, but am quite familiar with the Schwenningen surnames.
And more specifically, I think that this group was part of the 1847 emigration out of Schwenningen where the city paid for its poor to emigrate to the U.S.
