My Scheible family came from Ötisheim to Berger, Franklin Co.,MO (USA) in 1859. A preacher of the Evangelische Kirchen in Ötisheim did a family history on the Scheible name, but included only the male descendents.
I go back to 1690s, when Michel and his son, Hermann, first appear in the church records. Hermann had three sons:
Johann Martin b. 1700, Johann Michael b. 1702 and Johann Georg 1704 - 1778. My line is from Johann Martin. His son, Andreas 1731 - 1809, had three sons: Georg Jakob b 1767, who went with his family to North America; Andreas 1776 - 1840, whose son, Johann Andreas 1805 - 1879, came to N.A. in 1859 with his family and settled in Berger, MO; and Johann Gottfried 1783 - 1849, who had 5 sons. He stayed in Ötisheim.
We got the opportunity to visit Ötisheim in 2002 and met some of the family, but not the closest line. We do plan on going back and meeting this line.
I have the church records at the local LDS library, but it takes a long time for me to read them. Hopefully, I will get to search soon.
Ötisheim is near Pforzheim.
If I can help or if anyone can help me with the female names, please contact me.
