THE STORY AS I KNOW IT.
Caspar Kauffmann was born Oct. 19, 1680 in Bissingen
der Tech, Wurttenberg Germany. |from Family History Library
Film 1055840, 1680-1783 Bissingen an der Teck,
Wuerttenberg Lutheran records. His parents
names were Georg Kaufmann and Anna Maria
Kauffmann. However, we know from his
parents marriage records on Film 1055843 1612-1774 that his mothers
name was Anna Maria Batzlen.
The families had lived in this small town for hundreds of years. In the area around Stuttgart, there are 3 towns that could fit the name "Bissingen". They are Bissingen, Bisingen, and Bissingen an der Teck. After a careful study of the 1930's document we believe it is the Bissingen an der Teck. This village is south east of Stuttgart
The LDS library
has a microfilm of the Lutheran church in Bissingen.
All the information here comes from this document. Reading
the old German scrip is a challenge. We can scan the piece
