Hi Elmer. There are several Lichtenbergs, including the one you mentioned. Another is in Bas-Rhin (Alsace), France, near the northern border with Haut-Rhin (Lorraine). I can't quite recall the specifics, just now, but I have received e-mail correspondence over the years about PHILLIPPI lines in that region.
You may be thinking, "But Wendel was born in *Germany*, not France." That's true, but as you probably are aware, there was no such entity as "Germany" until after the Franco-Prussian war, and the regions of Alsace and Lorraine have been German-held territory at various points in their histories.
