Remembering Stephanus Bach

February 19, 2015

My maternal 6th -great grandfather, Stephanus Bach, was born sometime in 1684 in Filzen, Rheinland, Prussia. I have yet to find his parents’ names so Stephanus is my “dead-end” in this particular branch of the family tree.

According to Germany, Select Marriages, 1558-1929 (in German) on, Stephanus married Maria Eva Henckel on Jun 8, 1716. Their first child, a daughter they named Maria Margaretha Bach, was born that same year. Joes. Henricus, Petrus, Jacobus, Josephus, and Matthias were born in later years. Son Petrus is my direct lineage 5th great-grandfather and the great-grandfather of John Sturmer, about whom I have previously written.
