Stockach is a small village close to Immenhausen and Hinterweiler on the top of a small hill.  Before 1850 very often the couples from Stockach have been married in the church of Dusslingen. Obviously  Stockach had no own church during this time.


Georg Kemmler born May 5,1654  married Babara Koch from Wankheim and settled in Wankheim and therefore started the Kemmler dynasty there. His father Georg originally was from Ohmenhausen. Martin Kemmler, born Oct 17, 1838 was the father of the Kemmler line in Stockach after his marriage with  Anna Margarethe Haug.
