Aalen (City of)/ Ostalbkreis (Ostalb Dist.), Baden-Wuertttemberg. Location. History. Dating back to 8th and 5th BC lived the Meslithic settlements in this area. They left traces which include tools made of flint. Behind Kocherburg castle there was found traced of humans living there during the Bronze Age. The Celtics fortified the Schlossbaufeld settlement. Along came the Romans after they abandon the Lines Line around 150 AD and set up camp and then a town in 150 AD and it became part of the Roman Empire and the new line known as "Rhaetian Limes". The Roman cavalry unit "Ala II Flavia milliaria" were housed here and the remains of this is called "Kastell Aalen". Forced to retreat, the Romans gave up the for t and moved bank to the Rhine and Danube Rivers. Once the Romans left historians loose sight and knowledge of this area until the Middle Ages. In this area a village of Hammerstadt is mention in 839 but Aalen is not directly mentioned until in 1136 along with a man by the name of Conrad of Aalen. In 1214 to 1246 it's told the House of Hohenstaufen founded the town of Aalen. The area was gained by the Count of Oettingen who exchanged Aalen for money from the House of Wuerttenberg in 1358 or 1359. Village was destroyed in 1388 during the war between the Dukes of Bavaria and the Alliance of Swabian Cities. On 3 Dec 1360 Emperor Charles IV of the Holy Roman Empire. Charles IV declared Aalen as an Imperial free city which it kept until 1803. Reformation resulted in Aalen's major change from Catholic to Protestant which was followed by the Thirty Year's War during which resulted in Aalen swinging back to Catholic which resulted in the Protestant Union and afterwards both were able to worship and practice in Aalen together. 1634 proved just as difficult for the townspeople as. War and soldiers destroyed most of the city. The Swedes, Benard of Saxe-Weimar army and the Croatians looted what was left. During the Nine Years' War (1688) French troops enter Aalen and took their turn looting and destroying the town. The French marched through, again during the War of the Spanish Succession in 1702 and again during the War of Austrian Succession in 1741. The Imperial troops marched through in 1743,,, With the Catholic and Lutherans still in conflict it was ruled that both would have joint rule.... During the War of the Firs Coalition (1796) Aalen was looted. One has to wonder what there was to loot by this time. Anyway, in 1801 the Treat of Luneville lead to the Germans Mediatisation in 1803 giving Aalen to the Electorate of Wuerttemberg, which became part of the Duchy of Wuerttemberg and later the Kingdom of Wuerttemberg. Then came the War of the Third Coalition. On 6 Oct 1805 Napoleon arrived in Aalen with 40,000.... Two days later the Austrian and Bavarian troops moved into town as the French left... According to wikipedia the town clerk is credited in saying: "no feather could describe" what was happening to Aalen. In 1811 the municipality of Unterrombach was formed which merged parts of Aalen and territory of the Barons of Woellwarth. Napoleon was defeated. The town walls, gates and towers fell into disrepair. Then the stones were taken and used elsewhere... The fortification vanished....~
Aich n. Worms/ ___, Pfalz [= Eich / Alzey-Worms (am der Rhine) Dist., Rhineland-Palatinate] Often times "A" and "E" are interchangable. Eich and Aich are the same place. It is located north of Worms next to Biblis on the south, Riedstadt on the north and farther to the west is Alzey. Dates bach as far as 782 as a fishing village. ~
Thee is a Aich just north of Oberpframmen and south of Wolfersberg. Both are in the Ebersberg Dist., in Upper Bavaria (=Bayern) Hofenkirchen is the the west. East is Moosach and Grafing. South east and abt 24 km is Munich. South is Hohenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn and Egmating. Neubiberg is north northwest about 10 km.

Aichberg / n. Hornberg, Rottweil Dist., Baden-Wuerttemberg (See Eichberg) It is near Hornberg and Hohrbach on the edge of the Black Forest.
Ainingen / __, Wuerttemberg [Ainingen (??)] NOTE: I assume someone miss typed, which, unfortunaely, I am often guilty, and the village name may be Ensingen. Tracking down other Stumpp/Stumpf family members I believe the village is Ensingen since Stumpps are listed as having migr. from Unterensingen (Unter.Einsingen = Under Ensingen)/ Nuerteingen, Baden-Wuerttemberg. Also, sometimes "A" can be "E" as it is for Aich / Eich village.

Alfinger, Wuerttembrg [Alfinger (??)
Alfdorf / Rems-Mur-Kreis, Baden-Wuerttemberg [Aldorf / Reims-Mur Dist. , Baden-Wuerttemberg] This is another one of those confusing merges of villages. Aldorf came into being in 1972 and there was the merging of two villages: Pfalbronn and Vordersteinberg Therefore, can we assume Hans Steiner was born in either Pfahlbronn or Vordersteinenberg (vor.der.Steinen.berg)? If one uses logic, I would assume they lived in Vordersk since they carried the surname Steiner. The source did not give any additional information. Location: Southeast is Schwaebish Gmuend.

Baden-Baden / (urbn district), Baden-Wuerttemberg History: The history jumps right back to the Romans when they discovered the springs . Since then it's been known for its "baths" which many claim ease a person ills. From the 1300s to the 1600s it was the residence of the Margraves of Baden. The French troops marched into Baden-Baden in 1643, left and returned in 1689 and left nothing but ashes. It was't until outsiders discovered the baths (spas) that the city's popularity rose and became a meeting place for royality, high society, celebrities.... The rich and royality needed to be entertained so it was provided. Horse racing, gardens and casinos were only a part of what was happening in Baden-Baden. To drop a few names who visited Baden-Baden were Queen Victoria, Wilhelm I, Napoleon III, Brahms, Dostoyevsky.... Even Tolstoy's fictional characters Anna Karenina and her lover visited Baden-Baden. Garry and I spent an afternoon in a Baden-baden casino that resembles a place in which one could be sure that the famous spy 007 frequented in the movie theater .~

In the 700s a Frankish settlement known as Risolfesheim was founded and Bammental is an extension of Reilsheim.

Bavaria (Bayern). A German Free (Republic) State. Location is in the south east corner of Germany. Some of the imporant cities are Munich, Nuremberg, Ausburg, Regnesburg, Wuerzburg, Bayreuth and Bamberg. See 1923 map of Bavaria & Palatinate areas. It is the largest state which is in the southeast part of Germany. History. And, it is one of the oldest German states in Europe which was estalished in the period called "the first millenium" on the Julian calendar. The Romans held it as two provinces, Raetia and Noricum. They found the Bavarians spoke what is called the "Old High German". As the Romans withdrew there was left an interesting mixture of different groups of people.. There were the Romans who had setteled in the area, Marcomanni, Allemanni, Quadi, Thuringians, Goths, Scirians, Rugians, and Heruli. The Celts called it "Baluvarii" this area. The source was written in 520. Saint Boniface is given the credit for having finished the conversion of the people to Christianity by the 8th century.
554 to 788 House of Agilofling
788 Charlemagne trooped into Bavaria and took up the role as ruler
After the death of Charlemagne numberous families held the key roles in the duchy.
976 the Babengerger king lost the area known as "Ostarrichi" and this begins the creation of the area known as Austria.
Henry "the Lion" (House of Welf) founded Munich and held his position of power until 1180 but was set aside by the Duke of Saxony and Bavaria who was his cousin Frederick I, the Holy Roman Emperor, known as "Barbarossa". The area of Bavaaria was awared as a "fief" to the Wittelsbach House, who were counts of Palatinate of Schyren (Scheyern). House of Wittelsbach ruled from 1180 to 1918. In 1214 the Wittelsbach acquired "Kurpfalz" (The Electorate of the Palatinate). Through the years the boundaries changed due to inheritance by various branches of the family, purchases, releases and in 1506 there was the Landshut War of Succession. Munich became the sole capital of the Wittelbach's.... The Bavarian Duke rose in power, replaces his relative, the Electorate of the Palatinate and in the early days of the Thiarty Years' War gained the title of "prince-electoral" in the Holy Roman Empries. A few more wars, some with Austria, and the deaths of the old Babarian branch of the family, allowed the Palatinian lines to governed once again.
The Kingdom of Bavaria emerged under Napoleon, who had abolished the Holy Roman Empires, in 1806. The area of Bavaria doubled in size, even though it ceded Salzburg bach to Austria, in returned for the Rhenish Palatinate and Franconia.
Even after the rise of the Prussian, Bavaria kept it's independence through the wars between Prussia and Austria and held it's own as a memer of the German Federation founded in 1870.
On 12 Nov. 1918 King Ludwig III signed the Anif Declarion relesing everyone from their oaths to him. With that said, the Wittlebachs never declared renunciation of the Bavarian throne.

Esslingen, City of / Esslingen Dist., Baden-Wuerttemberg. Location. History. There is evidence where the city church was built, it was built on a site of preexsiting site that was a place created by people who gived there in the Neolithic Stone Age. The best guess is that the stie dates back to 1000 B.C. Laer, the Romanos built a warehouse in the area of Oberesslingen before the Romans built settelments and garrisons in Cannstatt and Koegen. By 777 the Catholic church had already set it's mark here and a chaplain of Charlemagne known as Pippin "bequeathed the church sixth cell upon the river Neckar to his monastery Saint-Denis. He also rought the bones of Saint Vitalis to Esslingen, which made it a target to pilgrimage and led to its growth." (Source: wikipedia). Therefore, it's growth gave it the attention of it's ruler to make it a market town which was certified in 866. From 946 to 953 the town was in the hands of the Liudolf, Due of Swabia. In 1229 it was given "city righs" under the House of Hohnstaufen,'s Emperior Frederick II, the Holy Roman Emperor, Built at this time was the Esslingen bridge across the Neckar River....

War, famine, epidemic did not skup over Esslingen. More than half of it's population died during this time. The independent city lost it's rights under Napoleon who place it into the Duchy of Wuerttemberg. There was WWI then WWII. In 1973 Esslingen am Neckar merged with Nuertingen Dist.

It is recorded that a Celtic fortress was there in the 5th century. The "Mountain of Saints" (Heilgenberg) was a place of worship for the Celtics. The 24th Roman cohort occupied the area in 40 AD and later by the 2nd Cyrenaican cohort. And here the Romans remained until 260 AD when the Germanic tribes invaded and conquered the area. It was the village of Bergheim (Mountain Home), which is, now, in the middle of Heidelberg mention in 769 AD documents. The first reference of the exist of a village known as Heidelberg occurred in 1155 when the Heidelberg castle and the area nearby were taken by Conrad of Hohenstaufen (House of). Conrad of Hohenstaufen became Count Palatine of the Rhine (Pfalzgraf bei Rhein). In 1225 Louis I, Duke of Bavaria gained the Palatinate. The "Winter King" Frederick V of Bohemian ruled but one winter because the Habsburgs trooped into Heidelberg in 1621 and the Thirty Years' War started. Catholic line of the Bavarian branch of the House of Wittelsbach gained the area of Heidelberg as weil as the title of Prince-Elector but at the end of the war in 1648 the Winter King's, Frederick V's son, Charles I Louis, Elector Palatine recovered his titles and lands. The Protestants and the Catholics were have their tug-of-wars politically and with troops. The Protestant Reformation divided families of rulers on down to the peasants who worked the field. The Nine Years' War --often called War of the Palatine Succession or War of the Grand Alliance or the War of the League of Augsurg-- occurred from 1688 to 1697. With the constant turmoil and severe winters, thousands of Protestant German Palatines emigrated to the lower Palatinate in the early 1700s. There were over 6,000 Palatines who headed to New York and ended up in Pennsylvania. Then came 1803 and Heidelberg was to become a part of the Grand Duchy of Baden under Charles Frederick, Grand Duke of Baden. In 1815 everything changed, again, but Heidelberg remained part of Baden. Prussian troops entered Heidelberg in 1848 during the Paltinate-Baden rebellion of what's known as the 1848 Revolution and stayed until 1850.

Heilbronn (City of) / Wuerttemberg [Heilbronn / Heilbronn Urban area = county, Baden-Wuerttemberg; Located on the Neckar River. Ludwig is south abt 20 km. Stuttgart is south and slightly west abt 40 km. History: The village then town and, now, a city lies on both sides of the Neckar River. Humans date back to the Old Stone Age (30,000 BC). There are present day areas where the site of the Bronze Age can be found. The Celts arrived and mined here for salt. The town lies on what is historically called the "Lime Line" which is as far as the Romans pushed west which was east of the Rhine and Heilbroon was on the border of the outer boundary of the Roman Empire. . 150 AD the line became blurred and by the 4th and 5th century came under the Frankish Empire. The first Frankish settlement was built in what is presently the center of Heilbroon. By 841 King Louis "the German" set up court here. The name came earlier and was referring to the healing well (Heilbrunna". A large group of Jews made their home here in 1050. The town gain it's right to hold "market days" and "mint coins". In 1225 Heilbroon was taken into the Hohenstaufen Empire and it's noted that it was a city that had "parapet" and "trenches" around the city as a protect measure. Along came the Teutonic Knights and they gained ownership of the area south of Heilbroon which remained under the order until 1805, which is a period of time known as the German Mediatsation in 1805. Heilbroon left the hands of the (Hohen)Staufen House and went into the hands of King Rudolf I (House of Habsburg) who returned Heilbronns status of "city". With the return of status came the various right of being able to construct dams, harbours, mills and erect a new market place which it did on the foundation of Michaelsbasilica. The Habsburg Emperors were pleased with the prosperity and raised the city to "Imperial Free City in 1371. The villages of Boeckingen, Flein, Frankenbach and Neckargartach became part of the territory of Heilbronn, which kept being ambitious. A treaty with the Electoral Palatinate (1417 to 1622) allowed Heilbronn excellent protection of Wuerttemberg.... But as often happens, the peasants were unhappy and rose in rebellion... April 1525 the city was forced to open it's gates and the peasant marched into town with trouble and revenge toward the nobles and the churches... Robbery followed.... When the dust settled around the Reformation as the Lutheran nobles sighed the Augusburg Confession in 1528, the Lutherans set up their church and make the claim they have held the second longest catechism in the Protestant Church. Unrest rose again ... Charles V (House of Habsburg) spent Christmas in 1546 in Heilbroon and attended the criminal proceedings of those who lost the fight. But the struggles were not to fade and vanish. There was the Thirty Years' War... By 1631 Heilbroon was occupied by Imperial troops but they last ground and the Swedes took the city. In 1644 to 1647 the area was won back by the Habsburg's troops. BUT the French returned and then came those troops from the Palatinate. It was returned through the Pace of Westphilia. But the mood remain tense and imperial troops remained and held their armed maneuvres as a warning to the French, who, of course, returned in 1688. When the French were "persuaded" to leave the area in 1693 back came the imperial troops who fortified the city. The 1700s brought new prosperity to the city. Buildings in the Rococo style were built. Schiller and Boethe visited the city. But war between the French and the Germans was not at an end. Frederick I of Wuerttemberg and his troops entered state left as the French Revolutions took the left back of the Rhine. The German Duke took the right bank of the Rhine that included Heilbronn. And so, Heilbroon in 1803 became part of Wuerttemberg. And it was here the major armies fighting Napoleon planed the defeat of Napoleon. Emperor Franz (House of Habsburg), Alexander I, Emperor. of Russia and 126 German princes and generals were there. 10,000 men in uniform stated a parade for their leaders. It is here where a woman known as Baroness Juliane von Keuedener met with Alexander I and with her influence, Alexander I founded the "Holy Alliance", a forerunner of the United Nations. Dust settled, again, and Heilbronn continued to prosper. In 1820 it was at the end of the rain line from Stuttgart and so began the industrialization of the area. But everything wasn't going to carry the city into good times without a few hitches. It suffered during the Baden Revolution.... In 1871 Heilbroon became part of the german Empire during the unification of Germany. The railroad was extended to Schwaebish Hall in the 1860s... The city always seem to have people who saw into the future. A power plant was built in Lauffen and Heilbronn connected it's power in 1892 and became the first city in the world to be connect to power outside of it's area which gave the city electricity.

Heidenheim Dist., Baden-Wuerttemberg
It was created from the historical Oberamt
Heidenheim. Back in 1808 it was merged with Oberamt Giengen. In
1934 and 1938 it was enlarged by added municipalities from Obermant Neresheim
and Oberamt Ulm. There was some reform in 1973 and the district was
shifted but no changed in boundary. History. Humans have been in the
area about 8,000 years ago. The first settlement established in the
records was in 1300 BD. The Romans built Castle Aquileia here and had
more than 1,000 mounted soldiers attached here. As the years passed
the Roman settlement was the largest in the area we know now as
Baden-Wuerttemberg. In 260 the Alamanni tribes end the Roman hold....The
Roman fortress was replaced by the Hellenstein Castle in the 700s. From
1190 to 1420 the town was surrounded by a city wall and it was granted as
a "market town" and was under the rule of the von Helfenstin family... Town
became a city and part of the Duchy of Teck ruled by Wuerttemberg in 1448.
For a brief time it was ruled by the Eletor of Bavaria (1462 to 1504.).
It went back into the hands of Wuerttemberg. Napoloen gave
Wueerttemberg more land in 1803 which connected Heidenhim with the rest of
the Wuerttemberg duchy. This meant the area was predominately Protestant
after the Reformation....There were pockets of Catholics.... But they were
slowly overshadowed until the late 1800s .... The event called "Shepherd's
Run" started in 1723 under Eberhard Ludwig....

The reason this was unforunate, was : the Baron was part of Frederick "the Greats" private army and having made the Baron his heir made it appear that the Baron was his friend rather than his enemy. At the time Prussia was fighting the Habsburg in the War of the Austrian Succession. . See the lives of both men in the Hohenzollen section.] Back to Holzgerlingen.

Evidently the area was a faromer bog on the south side of th Danube River known as the Old Bavarian Donaumoos. The drainage was created in 1790. by the order of Charles Theodore, Elector of Bavaria. Due to the affect of the natural enviromnment, some water is being reversed today. What we call "wetlands" is a home for all kinds of wild life. Anyway, back to what the elector did with the drained lands. He had had a long standing policy of not allowing people of any other faith accept Catholics in Bavaria. In 1802 he gave permission for 120 Memmonite families to settle in the drained bog area. Not finding life suitable, the Mennonites left the coly and migrated to the USA. There were some Lutherans (Envangelical and Reform), who were also settled here and you'll find their history in the parishes of Karlshuld, Ludwigsmoos and Untermaxfeld. It is noted that some of the settlers were "convicts".

Along the south bank of the Neckar River. History. In corporated into the Tuebingen 's univsersity city in 1 july 1971. The intresting fact about Kilchberg the local people spoke the Alemannic German as did the Kilcherg in northern Switzerland , This was once called the old High German and presently called a dialect of the Upper German banch of the Germanic language. Basel and Zuerich. It is thought that the word Kilch refers to a freshwater whitefish which somehow becomes translated as meaning "salmon mountrain" or Salmon hill". However, I go with the possible origin dating bach to the Keltics meaning "chalice hill", which refiers to an ancient Ketlic murial mound which resembled the same of an upsidedown chailiace. It was a small farming area until the Mideele Ages when the moted stone caste ASchloss Kilcberg was built. The owner was from the ancient "lesser" nobility called "Uradel Niederadelich" who was probably a Baron probably from the family belong to the "Reichsritter" (Knights of the Realm or Imperial Knights).
