Freckenfeld & Minfeld

Fourth Great Grandfather Mathias, son of Jacob, marries Maria Catharina Huener of Freckenfeld, Germany in October of 1786.   By now, he has moved to Jockgrim, but that story will be part of the Jockgrim post. They marry in Minfeld, which is the next down away from Freckenfeld.  Why didn’t they marry in her hometown?  Watch the video to get the answer:

A few pictures from Freckenfeld.  They only had a Protestant church.  This is the first town I noticed a lot of solar panels on roofs.

And here is the church in Minfeld, just a couple minutes down the road.
