  • ID: I1725
  • Name: Johann* Georg REIFFENBERG 1
  • Sex: M
  • Change Date: 12 JAN 2013
  • Event: Hunter List
  • Note: # 591
  • Event: Euro-Origin 6342 Haiger, nr. Dillenburg, Germany
  • Note: Per Jones: "The European origins of the family were at 6342 Haiger (5 km. w. of Dillenburg). The early chbks. of this village crucial to my study are no longer extant. Johann Georg Reiffenberg of Flammersbach in Amt Haiger petitioned to leave Germany in 1709 (Nassau-Dillenburg Petitions). Perhaps he was the s/o Christianus Reiffenberger, s/o the late Johannes Reiffenberger from Flammersbach in the Ampt Haiger, who md. Cathrina, d/o Johannes Cuntz from Amdorf, 6 Oct 1672 at 6348 Herborn (HJ). The earlier Johannes Reiffenberg of Flammersbach had a daughter Anna Elisabetha who sp. at 6349 Breitscheid at an early date." 1

  • Note:
    All the information that appears here as Johann Georg's lineage was supplied by an email correspondent whose website is cited throughout. Her email reads as follows:

    " this info that I corrected and put in was from a distant relateive in germany and had to ask him to tranlate it so I know who went where!!. the dates liek I said are Betweens. YOu already know of course they family had a castle named after them AFTER it was HATTSTEIN Castle. This is the same family, the name changed after Kuno/Cuno took it over. The namse were interchangable. ( I will have to find the little story I have abt it then send it to ya. interesting,) and We have a Crest they we ARE allowed to use!! I will send that to you too! The ancestry I added a not on it, so be sure to follow it. because when you coem to Jutta's name, you start following HER line back, she is the Noble name Johann comes from , she IS a Reiffenberg! Also, it seems eveyone hs Johann Groge Reiffenberg's dad as Christophus, Ithough that too until I got this info and found the confussion. I think you like this info and the crest. Enjoy that one because its ours to actually use since it was given to a direct ancestor!! that's how that works. One has to be froma Direct line to actually have to right to use or claim a crest. Alot of people think because it was given to a lets say, a cousin with the same surname they can use it too, no only the direct line."
