Am looking for any information regarding this family, particularly where they may have settled after coming to this country. Johann was born 15 Jun 1802 in Gemmrigheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg, Germany and Maria was born 3 Apr 1803 in Metterzimmern, Württemberg , Germany. They immigrated to this country in 1852 with at least three of their children. I have not been able to track them over here. I do know that one of their daughters, Catharina Christina (my great-great grandmother), born 22 Dec 1840 in Metterzimmern, married her husband, Alfred BARBER, in 1859 in North Bloomfield, Trumbull County, Ohio. I have never been able to find the other members of the family. Johann's parents were Georg Balthas BECKBISSINGER and Christine Dorothea RÖSCH. Johann's family name was spelled BECKBISSINGER, but the spelling changed to BEKBISSINGER in Metterzimmern. The spelling on Catharina Christina's wedding certificate is BECKBISSINGER. Any help with this family would be greatly appreciated.
