Ancestors Herb in Baden (Germany)

I am searching for information on my anchestors Herb.

My first question: When and where my Great-Great-Great-Grandfather Franz Josef Herb was really born? And did he have more children?

The second question: Did my Great-Great-Grandfather Johann Jakob Herb have more children?

Here are the facts I have:

1. My Great-Great-Great-Grandfather Franz Josef Herb:

Franz Josef Herb, whose profession was bricklayer, was born around 1759 probably in the Allgaeu region. He was a catholic. He married Katharina Sara Schweickart in Leimen near Heidelberg on April 19, 1784 (no children known). Later he married Susanna Katharina Lorenz (catholic, baptized December 28, 1771 in Handschuhsheim near Heidelberg, died December 30, 1838 in St. Ilgen near Heidelberg) in Handschuhsheim on February 2, 1796. Their son Johann Jakob is my great-great-grandfather. I don't know any other children of the family. Franz Josef Herb died in St. Ilgen on February 25, 1819.

Franz Josef Herb had a brother called Anton, who married Eva Barbara Audacher in Nussloch near Heidelberg on February 14, 1792.

2. My Great-Great-Grandfather Johann Jakob Herb:

The bricklayer Johann Jakob Herb is born in St. Ilgen on January 10, 1808 and baptized catholic there on the same day. He married Elisabetha Krafft (born March 7, 1812 in St. Ilgen, baptized catholic there March 8, 1812, died March 16, 1850 in St. Ilgen) in St. Ilgen on October 8, 1838. Johann Jakob Herb died in St. Ilgen on February 24, 1864. Their son Johannes Herb is my great-grandfather. I don't know, if the family had any other children.

3. My Great-Grandfather Johannes Herb:

Sergeant Johannes Herb, who later on served as a revenue officer in Pforzheim near Karlsruhe, was born in St. Ilgen on December 7, 1844 and baptized catholic there on December 11, 1844. He married Wilhelmine Leidner (born November 27, 1849 in Heidelberg and baptized catholic there December 2, 1849, died March 17, 1935 in Pforzheim) in Hemsbach near Heidelberg on September 23, 1873. They had seven children, but only one of them, my grandfather Hermann Ludwig Herb had children himself. Johannes Herb died in Pforzheim on September 3, 1889.

Thank you very much

Georg Herb
