Birthplace of John William Blumenstiel

Birthplace of John William Blumenstiel, my great grandfather, in Reichensachsen, Hessen (present day Germany). The people in the photo owned the house after the Blumenstiel family relocated to Freeport, Illinois, USA in 1885. Reichensachsen is now part of Wehretal, a community in the Werra-Meißner-Kreis in northeastern Hesse, Germany. Wehretal came into being in 1971 and 1972 with the merger of the communities of Hoheneiche, Langenhain, Vierbach, Oetmannshausen, and Reichensachsen. #falknerjarrell #blumenstielgenealogy #blumenstiel #genealogy #familytree #familypictures #genealogy #familyhistory #reichensachsen #freeportillinois #germany🇩🇪 #hessen #oldhouse #halftimbered #birthplace #immigrants #immigrants #findingroots
