THE STORY AS I KNOW IT
Rosina Schempp was born Sept. 28, 1753 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 Protestant church records of Bissingen. The handwriting is in old German and the spelling varies but the detail matches what had been discovered in the 1930s. That document confirms the 1930's research. Rosina Schempp was baptized on September 30 1753. Her parents are listed as Johann Michail Schempp and Christina Barbara Huinbe. Her last name is really hard to make out.
There is a church document that records all the pertinent names and dates of the family of Cyriakus Maier and Rosina Schempp. Her parents are recorded as Johann Michael Schempp and Christina Barbara with no maiden name given. The document gives the birth and death date of every one in the family.
Rosina. married Cyriakus Maier on Feb 28, 1775 in Bissingen, Wurttemberg, Germany.
Rosina and Cyriakus had ten known children, all born in
Bissingen. Four died in infancy and two in war.
1. Johann Friedrick born June 22, 1776. He died that week.
2. Juliana Catharina born Oct 1, 1777 married Andreas Huttenlocker
3. Johann Friedrich born Nov 8, 1779. He married Maria Barbara Kaufmann
4. Johannes born April 14, 1783 and died the next day
5. Johann Jakob born Feb. 3, 1784 and died that week
6. Maria Barbara born April 30 1785 and died within 2 weeks.
7. Johann Conrad born June 21, 1786 and died in 1812 in Russia.
8. Johann Michael born Oct 1, 1789 married Anna Maria Staib.
9. Johann Philipp born Dec 24, 1790 died 1813 in Sachsen.
10. Johann Jakob born April 11, 1794 married 1st Anna Barbara Gabler, 2nd Anna Barbara Ensinger.
Rosina died May 17, 1836. Her husband Cyriakus lived until June 1, 1845.
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.
