Return to Family Index




Caspar Maier was born on Nov. 6 1580 in Bissingen, Wurttemberg, Germany. A Maier Genealogy was written in the 1930's while a family member was living in Germany. All of this information came from that document. However, I also have a copy of the church records of Bissingen that were microfilmed by the LDS library. The handwriting is in old German and the spelling varies but the detail matches what had been discovered in the 1930s.

Caspar's parents were Caspar Maier and Ursula Kail.

Caspar Maier married first Catharina Metzingen May 5, 1612 in Bissingen. They had no children. Catharina died within the next year and a half for on Feb. 22, 1614 Caspar married Catharina Kirschenmayer. They were all of Bissingen.

Catharina and Caspar Maier had seven known children, all born in Bissingen.
1. Georg born Dec. 6, 1614.
2. Johannes born November 16, 1616
3. Anna born Feb 2, 1621
4. Ursula born April 21, 1623
5. Johannes born March 25, 1626 married Anna Maria Baur
6. Caspar born Jan. 11, 1630
7. Johann Caspar born may 20, 1632 married Anna Holder in 1661 and he died 1696.

The compiler of this information believes the first four children died in their youth.

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. It is the home of other relatives. These villages are south east of Stuttgart.
