Martin and children were born in a village/town called Oberseebach, Bas-Rhin, Alsace Lorraine, France. Bas-Rhin is a county. Oberseebach is part of the larger town Wissembourg Canton, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France.

I have been tracing the Lawrence K. Sr. line which leaves Wayne Co., MI going to Clinton Co., MI settling in the town of Westpahlia, MI. Lawrence bought land there in 1854 and had 10 children by his wife Catherine Steppich/Steppig who he married in Oberseebach, FR. Catherine was born 13Nov1832 in Riedseltz, Alsace-Lorraine and died 13Aug1905 in Westphalia, MI. Lawrence Sr. died 23May1898 also in Westphalia, MI. All members of St. Mary's Catholic Ch. in Westphalia and are buried in St. Mary's Cem. in Westphalia, MI.

Wissembourg is just west of the Rhine River and on the bourder of Germany and France.
