    One entry in the FB for Körperich lists Ammeldingen, Gentingen, and Eisenbach as place he lived. For his wife Elisabeth, the same entry shows she was from Gentingen, a part of Körperich, where their first child was born. Three daughters were born to the couple.

    Another entry in the FB lists his parents and Elisabeth's parents. The information comes from the 15 May 1770 marriage record found in the Kirchenbuch 2, page 160, entry 1 in Körperich. At the time of marriage Elisabeth lived in Seimerich.

    A third entry is for the death of Michael Clos of Eisenbach on 20 December 1775. He was 28 years old.

    Elisabeth must have been pregnant with her third child when her husband died at this young age.

    I believe the three entries are for the same couple. They leave me with the question of what happened after the birth of the third daughter. Did Elisabeth marry again? Where did she raise her daughters? Why were the first and last daughter given the same name? Did the first daughter die before 1776?

    In 1790 Margaretha, a daughter of Michael and Elisabeth, married in Mettendorf. Was the bride 19 years old or was she only 16? Did the mother live in Mettendorf at the time of the daughter's marriage?
