In that Eberstadt is situated within the southwestern corner of the Hohenlohekreis, I asked one of my Rudolph-descended cousins of that region whether it weren't possible that your Maria Elisabetha Rudolph were perhaps a daughter of our ancestor Johann Jakob Balthasar Rudolph of Gaisbach. I did so knowing that our progenitor, the latter's son, Georg Martin Rudolph, who was born in 1725 at Gaisbach evidently relocated westward to Sindringen, where his son and our forefather, Georg Martin Rudolph, was born in 1756 and a number of the latter's descendents live to this day, and that Sindringen is not altogether that far removed to the northeast of Eberstadt, for your date in 1751 seemed to allow for this possibility. Unfortunately, my cousin couldn't supply me with anything concrete in this regard whatsoever; although, she too did admit of the possibility and suggested that one ought to look into the relevant church books as a means of unraveling the mystery. I concur with her suggestion but further suggest that you check the Rudolph Family Genealogy Forum postings of Jan Pierce Nottingham, Steve Clarke, Betty Rudolph and Joan Neumann Lowrey, as they all deal with Württemberger Rudolphs as well.
