Fleckenstein, Germany to PA

I was looking for information on the Fleckenstein family , particularly Regina Fleckenstein b.1850 d/o Philip and Catherine Bergen Fleckenstein . She married Francis Xavier Obenrader abt. 1868. She had a son Thomas in 1875 who married two of my grandfather's aunts, Mary Wank abt. 1899, and after she died in 1901, he married Clara Wank in the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church in Brookville,Jefferson County, PA in 1904. Mary and Clara Wank's father was Godfrey Wank b. 1836 in Schoellkrippen, (near Frankfurt), Bavaria, Germany and came to this country in 1845.
Clara's son is Father Paul Obenrader who, in one of his letters regarding his trip to Germany in 1964 mentions meeting a Father Ferdinand Fleckenstein, and states he looked and walked like Father Art Fleckenstein of Tidoute, PA. I have seen the name Fleckenstein in Schoellkrippen , so I thought maybe there was some connection between the families back in Germany. If any one has knowledge of these families, please contact me. Thank you.
