    Notes 
    • Hans Jerg was shown in the Adelmannsfelden Parish records to have married a woman named Maria Magdalena on 13 Feb 1692 at Scherrenmühle.

      BonnieMargaret Jacobs, on page 6 of her 1981 manuscript, stated that when she visited Germany, one of the places she toured was the Berg "hof" where Benkelmann still live. The family that is still there is descended from Hans Jerg Benkelmann, the brother of Adam of Berg/Waiblingen (and ancestor of the Michigan/Colorado/Kansas Benkelman families), and she suspects that this place of Berg is the true ancestral home of the Benkelman family. On page 33, she noted that Johann Georg (Hans Jerg) Benggelmann , the son of Adam Benggelmann of the Burghards Mühle was baptised anno 1624 in Fachsenfeld. She also stated that throughout the war, the churches were inactive in this area. But there was a displaced pastor from Neubronn who was also a refugee and who continued to administer the sacraments to the other refugees. It was he who recorded the 1624 baptism of Jerg and later entered it into the proper parish records at Fachsenfeld. After the Peace of Westphalia, when the princes became their own popes, Württemberg was declared Protestant and the parishes were re-established as reformed. The pastor from Neubronn carefully saw to it that his ministrations were recorded in the proper parishes and only because of him are we one of the few German families of this region who can find the thread back through the holocaust of the Thirty Years War.

      BonnieMargaret when on to note that Jerg arrived in Scherrenmühle in Waiblingen, Fachsenfeld parish, in the year 1658 and he appears to have lived his life as a miller there, though several of his children migrated to Aalen. The descendant of his who now lives at the Berg hof is descended from one of Jerg's children who first migrated to Aalen. This repeated return of Benkelmanns to Berg gives weight to the possibility that Berg is the true ancestral home.
