THE STORY AS I KNOW IT
Ursula Kail was born about 1550 in Dettingen, Wurttemberg, Germany. A Maier Genealogy was written in the 1930's while a family member was living in Germany.
Ursula was the daughter of Andreas Kail probably of Dettingen. She married Caspar Maier on March 6, 1577 in Bissingen, Wurttemberg, Germany. This was the first identified ancestor in a long line of Maier's that continue today in Delaware. Ursula and Caspar married almost 300 years before their descendant would emigrant to America from Bissingen.
Ursula and Caspar Maier had three known children, all born in Bissingen.
1. Anna born Nov. 24, 1577
2. Balthasar born December 18, 1578. He married Barbara.
3. Caspar born Nov. 6, 1580, married 1st Catharina Metzingen &
2nd Catharina Kirschenmayer.
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. Close by there is a Dettingen unter Teck. These villages are south east of Stuttgart.
Nothing more is known of Andreas Kail.
