To anyone on the list that I already know - hi!!
To those I don't know..... My Landwehr family came from Schale, Kreis
Tecklenburg, Westfalen in the mid-1800's. My direct line in the US settled
in Barrington (Cook County), Illinois. The folks there dropped the "h" from
the name & became Landwer. Various cousins settled in Bensenville (DuPage
County), Illinois; Elgin (Kane County), Illinois; & Manchester (Washtenaw
County), Michigan, plus other places. There are many other surnames
associated with the Landwehr family from Schale. In fact, it's a giant
I'd love to hear from other descendants of the Schale folks, or anyone who
has a connection to the Landwehr family there.

My GGGrandfather, Joseph Hammer. married Maria Barbara Landwehr (daughter
of Thomas Landwehr and Maria Barbara Hafner) on 19 Feb 1811 in Neuses,
Wurttemberg, Germany. Neuses is a tiny village near Harthausen. I was in
Harthausen in June of this year on a sightseeing tour of the little towns
which were the homes of my ancestors.
Maria's father and grandfather were born in Neuses but her GGrandfather,
(Joannes Landwehr b. 6 Nov 1667 and married to Eva ?) was born in Harthausen.
