I just sent a reply to Judy about her first posting for Leonard Bahr (b.1843), because after reading your postings I believe Leonard Bahr may have a connection to my Great-Great Grandfather Frederick John Bahr of Baden-Wurttemberg. Our Bahr family records show Fred. Bahr (b.1837)emigrating to the U.S.-approx.1854-. Later, he is known to have worked for a Stutz family on Long Island in the early 1860's (Frederick & Margaret Stutz with child Caroline-maybe other children). My Great-Grandfather Frederick John Bahr Jr. was born there during that time (1863). His father-Fred.Sr.- married a Margaret Kessler of Bavaria in Ohio approx. 1859.
These postings have proven to be very intriguing to my Bahr family branch. Therefore, I consider it of the utmost importance to find out the names of the other seven children of Jacob Bahr and Margaret Kinne. You mentioned that a Leonard Bahr (b.1843), was the youngest of 8 children. I suspect that my Great-Great Grandfather may have been one of the other seven. Do you have the names of Leonard's older siblings ?
Also, I believe I may like to invest in the book you mentioned-"Familien in Leimen 1667-1900"-how does one obtain a copy of the book ?

(cousin Mary's brother, father, and Grandfather were all named Leonard Bahr).
