My husband’s family lived in Wüstenzell before 1885. My husband’s great great grandfather, Joseph Engelhardt (Engelhanz?) Spanheimer, immigrated to the United States in 1885 with his sister Rosa and much older sister Martha.
I reached out to some folks on Instagram and a nice person contacted their friend who lives nearby. The house still stands! The Wüstenzell native took a current picture and shared it with me. It was easy for them to take the pic as THEY OWN THE HOUSE. Neat coincidence. Pretty exciting!
