They were from Nordrach in Baden. I have also found out that the family probably originated in Ottenhoefen.

Kaeshammer, Gaiser, Schoenknecht, Kimmig
I am searching for my Kaeshammer ancestors who were from Ottenhoefen, Baden-Wuerttemberg, German. Friedrich Kaesshammer bn 5Mar1814, md 2Oct1837 Margaretha Gaiser dau of Gertrud Gaiser, died 23Jun1880 in Ottenhoefen, Baden Germany. Friedrich's parents were Johann Kaesshammer and Agatha Walz. Other wives include Barbara Lepold 1868 and Katharina Schnurr 1870. Friedrich's dau, Magdalena bn 17Jul1840 md Josef Kimmig 1881, died 1916. Son on Josef Kimmig and Magdalena Kaesshammer was Julius (gallus) Kaesshammer (my great grandfather) who came to America about 1881 and married Anna Henrietta Wilhelmina Schoenknecht of Mellen Prussia. They settled in Madison, Connecticut.

Barbara---I have Gaisers in my family and they came from Ottenhofen--Michael in 1886 (age 17) to Utica, NY
Godparents for one of his children was Catherina Kimmig.
I have Michael's parents as Michael and Maria Anna Schweigler--abt. 1844-1893 all in Ottenhofen. They had at least 7 children and when Maria died he re-married Karolina Sackman and I have the names of 9 more children.
Could we have a connection?
