I found this information of interest, and perused the information. As a
guess, I'd look for the town "Livitz' under 'LITITZ". I am a Moravian, and
Lititz, PA is a colonial Moravian settlement. Who knows if there is another
Lititz, or this may also be the one sought, although it is obviously in
Pennsylvania. (This area of Pennsylvania was BIG cigar making
country--usually a cottage industry at first. I noticed Jos Hart was a cigar
maker. Moravian's consider our roots to go back to Jon Hus and thus the true
beginning of the Reformation.( The Reformation movement really began within
universities as an intellectual amongst priests/teachers with discussion
about improving, thus Reforming the Roman Catholic Church. The powers to be
did not want to hear any of this!) Hus was a Roman Catholic priests, as
were almost all reformers of the only Christian Church in those times.
However, Hus was burned at the stake almost 100 years BEFORE Martin Luther
for his teachings. I like to say Luther 'got away with' what most of his
predecessors championed, but paid for usually with their life.
Interesting reading. Thank you. Stay well. FRED in PA

Anna's town looks like "Bielfeld", which is usually spelled as "Bielefeld":
Joseph's looks like "near Livitz", but I can't find a town by that name.
