      Thank you for the additional information! From your information I see that Johannes Brandt was the son of Johann Caspar and Eva Marie (Kleffel) Brandt. I also see that Johannes & Anna Catharina (Geisenhoner) Brandt’s daughter Catharina Maria had a twin brother that died in 1836. Is the information from church records? If so, what church? Again, thank you so much. Karen
