further research was completed in 2000 by Joy Reeb and Ray Haupt that established Michael & Johanetta Leonhardt the parents of Valentine not Martin and Anna Spohn Leonhardt.
There is a record of a marriage on 10 Feb 1730 between
Johann Nicholaus Reeb to Cath Elizabeth Linart, witnessed by Michael Linhart and Michael Reeb.
Catholic and Reformed Church records from Katzenbach.
Reformed Church records at Gersbach
Catholic Church records at Insweller
The name Michael was repeated in every generation of my family line, including Valentine's son Michael >>>>my GFather Michael Leonard>>>>my son Michael Gadberry.
There was never a Martin.
I believe that Johanette was a Reeb because of the similarity of names. Johann Reeb
It is probable that Jacob & Martin were related to Michael but there is no proof that I am aware of at this time. Michael and Martin were not the same person.
I will be happy to email Bette the record of my family line from Michael of Katzenbach to my son Michael.
FYI I do not argue about these things. The information about Martin was researched by my Uncle and his wife. They were wonderful researchers and only two errors have been found in their book published in 1975. I am sure they would be the first to acknowledge subsequent information.
