Thank you SO MUCH! I just keep reading and re-reading the info you have sent. It is so amazing finally knowing exactly where my great grandfather and siblings were born. I will be searching further that's for sure, as I would love to trace Adam and Anna Maria back to Hessen. Thanks also for the thought on "Grant". It made me recall that 'Grant' and 'Grantz' have been some of the misspellings of the name I have come across in my research, and it probably got added because of that.
