you can also look on this website for some info ( may require some translation - )www.thomas-scharnowski.de
there is all sorts of research on families/clans in the area - Schmiden tends to have more info than Fellbach.
The church in Schmiden is know as the Alte Kirche and is a Lutheran church.The town cemetary is located there.
The Grosshaus is the Kauffmann family home in Schmiden which is now a town library, movie theatre and outdoor gathering place for the town. THe house is about 500 years old ( I visited it with my dad about 2.5 years ago - by the way, there is an ambassador from South America who is a Kauffmann that I met that day)
You might also want to investigate the Burkle family as they are the big family in the area - lots of intermarriage with Kauffmann
