I had an opportunity to transcribe the Status Animarum, or Family Book, St. Agatha's a few years ago. This was a listing of all of the families in the congregation, ca. 1850. I also had a chance to look at some of the early baptisms, which were wonderful because they listed place of origin, and wife's maiden name. (The priest has changed, and now no one is permitted to look at the records, unfortunately.) Anyway, Joseph Anton Bopp was listed as being from Berlichingen, Wurtemburg, and Maria Magdalena Lang, his wife, was from Oberkessach, Kunselsau, which is nearby, I believe. The family book listed:

Jos. Ant. Bopp, born 23 Aug. 1812
Maria Magd. Lang, born 26 May 1821
Maria Genofeva, 18 Feb. 1843
Joseph, 4 May 1847
John, 2 Oct. 1848
Philipp, 14 March 1850

Two more children were baptized at St. Agatha's -

Catharina, birthdate not given (prob. 1851)j, bapt. 1852, godfather Phil. Hoffmann

Carl Sebastian, born 11 March 1852, bapt. 13 March 1852, godfather Phil. Hoffmann
