Family #227 is mine, and I'd be very interested if you find any connection.
At least, this gives you a bunch of stuff to check out. Unfortunately, the
above Brensbach FB book doesn't extend to the time period you are interested
in, but the information is all there in the church records on film. I have
one of the films from the FHL (#1190544) at my FHC--it contains these earlier
records. The other one that has later records is available for loan.
