Kephart Family Genealogy Forum
Dear Bob, The book I refered to in my recent message is labeled "Erlach im Rahmen der Geschichte" The main authors are Reineldis Roth (who lives in the castle), and Tho Michel who my husband and I personally met at his home in Erlach. The suporting authors are Catholic Pfarrers, Joachim Ullrich, Michael Schiller, Grubwort von P. Ingbert Klinger. Other people involved in this work is Grubwort des Ersten Burgermeister, Peter Wesselowsky, and Peter Hogler . The book was printed Gesamtherstellung: Benedict Press, 97359 Munsterschwarzach Abtei., in 1998.
The book represents the history of Erlach in the early days up to the present and the people who live there. The first Erlach mentioned in the book is Herren von Erlach and his early dates of 1147. It also confirms " Heinrich 11 von Erlach im Kloster St. Stephan zu Wurzburg" . But it does not stay with the Erlach family, where they went, or other information concerning a connection to Zink, Gebhart names.
I also have a photocopy of Calvin Kepharts booklet, and I have a lot of respect for his work. The problem however is source material. I wish he would have given much more detail where his information came from to be able to verify. But from his credentials he appears to be a great scholar.
