Reicheneck is very small town located between Mittelstadt and Metzingen. The center of the town has kept his historical design. Today it belongs to the city of Reutlingen.


The Kemmler family in Reicheneck was started by Johann Daniel Kemmler (*26.9.1789) from Wankheim,  who married Regina Barbara Kuder from Reicheneck. Both settled in Reicheneck and all her kids were born here.  Two of their sons, Johann Daniel Kemmler and Sigmund Kemmler and one daughter, Regine emigrated to the USA and settled in Pennsylvania and in New Orleans. I have researched the descendants of these 3 emigrants nearly completely and have received precious documents during that research.
