I just posted to the ISENBERG Mailing List too. Was really surprised to get your reply, figured your email address had probably changed since '99. If we've corresponded before, I may have decided this was not the right family and abandoned the search. I may have simply forgotten it but don't want to think that happened ! Would like to see if we can link Carl born about 1825 and Herman born 1829, both Waldeck. There are 3 Waldecks in Germany according to map searches.
Do you know who Carl's parents were ? Lots of those family names were used for the children of Herman and Louisa in Tea, Missouri. In the Augustdorf Old Parish Records, there were both EISENBERGs and ISENBERGs.
