Anna Catharina Walz was bornJan 17,  1715  in Bissingen an der Tech, Wurttenberg Germany. Her parents were Ludwig and Susanna Walz.  Her mother's maiden name is unknown. 

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.

Jan 27, 1739 Johann Georg Kaufmann  married Anna Catharina Walz

Their children were
Cyriacus Kauffman wed March 1773, can't read brides name.  but he is listed as son of Georg Kauffmann  He is not on the LDS CD but his birthdate would be right.
also, it is a long time from a wedding in 1739 and the birth of the first child on the CD list, so I think there are some not recorded.

On the LDS CD with father Johann George and mother Anna Catharina Kauffmann are:
1.  Johann Cunrad Kauffmann, born 1748
2.  Anna Catharina Kauffmann, born 1750
3. Johann Georg Kaufmann Jr.born 1752,  died Oct 15, 1824.  He wed Maria Barbra Holpp.
4.  Anna MariaKauffmann, born 1754
5.  Anna Maria Kauffmann, born 1765    No death records are included in the Kauffmann material, but this certainly implies that the first Anna Maria died.  It is a long gap between births in the days of no birth control.

It is not known when either Johann Georg or his wife Anna Catharina died.
