Georg Kauffmann was born about 1655 in Bissingen an der Tech, Wurttenberg Germany. |from Family History Library Film 1055843, 1612-1774 Bissingen an der Teck, Wuerttenberg Lutheran records we know father was  Michael Kauffmann.   His mother may have been Veronica, maiden name unknown, but first married to a Minder.

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 so you can attempt to see it also. Just click under Contact Us with the request.  One wonderful form has the family record. It includes the birth and death date of the bride and groom, their parents, and all their children with birth , confirmation and death.  There is also a Compliation of Church Records -Western European It is searchable by name and it is all printed out for you.  My copies of the original church records concurs with the CD.  It is put out by LDS.

His marriage record noted above shows that on Nov. 9, 1669, Georg Kaufmann married Anna Maria Batzlen.  That record gave his father's name, Michael and her father's name as Michael Batzlen.

Their children were recorded on that same film as:

1.  Caspar Kauffmann, born 1680, he wed Margaretha Mackhen.
2.  Hans Jacob Kauffmann, born 1682
3.  Catharina Kauffmann, born 1684
4.  Anna Maria Kauffmann, born 1685
5.  Barbara Kauffmann, born 1686
6.  Anna Barbara Kauffmann, born 1688 (I wonder if Barbara born 1686 had died?)
7.  Margaretha Kauffmann, born 1688 must be Anna Barbara's twin
8.  Hanss Georg Kauffmann, born 1691

That is a lot of babies in a very short time!

No death records are included in the Kauffmann material

It is not known when either Georg Kauffmann or his wife Anna Maria died.
