     Philipp Hilsenbeck I was born c 1618 at Giengen an der Brenz, Jagstkreis, Wuerttemberg, Germany. He was the son of Matthaus Hilsenbeck I. Philipp Hilsenbeck I married Margarethe Pfister, daughter of Rev Christian Pfister, in Dec 1645 at Munsingen, Reutlingen, Wuerttemberg, Germany. Philipp Hilsenbeck I married Barbara Dauner on 25 Jan 1665 at Feldstetten, Alb-Donau-Kreis, Wuerttemberg, Germany.

      Feldstetten is located nearby other ancestral villages for this family -- about two miles west of Laichigen and about twenty-five miles west-southwest of Giengen. The Feldstetten population in early 1634 was reportedly between 525 and 800 inhabitants. Between 1635 and 1650, Feldstetten was nearly deserted. Those who had not died at the hands of the Imperial troops during the 1618-1648 Thirty Years War between catholics and protestants died as a result of starvation or the plague or fled to the protection of the walled cities and did not return. In 1949 the Feldstetten pastor, Dr. Dieter, wrote a brief history entitled Feldstetten During The Centuries. Feldstetten suffered devastation similar to Laichingen during the Thirty Years War but without as total destruction of records. The author stated in 1630 the Feldstetten population numbered "800 inhabitants and 150 horses...in spite of the Pest of the previous years (1626/27). But after the bloody outrages, plunderings, famines and epidemics there were in 1635 only 50 inhabitants present." Further he stated "...in 1652 only 120 and only in the year 1829 was the number of 806 reached again...." These statistics represent the conditions in which our ancestors lived in the first part of the seventeenth century.

When Philipp Hilsenbeck and his bride Margarethe moved to Feldstetten in 1646 or 1647, the village lay in ruin. Philipp and his bride came to fill a vacuum; property was apparently free for the taking. The same thing was occurring in next-door Laichingen. By 1654 the population in Feldstetten stood at 132 and not until 1743 did the population grow to the levels of 1634. Philipp was a brewer in Feldstetten.

According to the Feldstetten marriage register Philipp married Margaretha Pfister in Nov 1646 in nearby Münsingen where her father was the minister. However, this 1646 date is in conflict with a marriage entry dated Dec 1645 in the Giengen church records which is likely correct. Feldstetten had no minister from 1636 until 1653; clergymen from Laichingen and surrounding communities filled this role, thus a substitute may have erred with the date of Nov 1646. Secondly, the first child of this couple was born on 8 Apr 1647. While it certainly was not unheard of that a bride was already several months pregnant when she married, ministers during the seventeenth century often entered very personal comments into the church birth records such as "this child was born six months too early," and no such comment was entered in the birth record of their first-born.

Margaretha died in 1663; either before this time or shortly afterward Philipp hired Barbara Dauner, a maid who had come from Steiermarck, an area of present-day upper Austria. Philip finally married Barbara only a month before their first child arrived. In their early 1665 marriage record the minister recorded the bride was 32 weeks pregnant. When their child was born the minister noted as he entered this birth into the birth register that the child was born only a few weeks after the wedding of its parents.

Philipp's two wives produced seventeen children but few survived to adulthood. In that era many children died from "Gichter" which has a loose interpretation, sometimes meaning diarrhea or a high fever. Frequent epidemics of typhus, measles or other contagious diseases occurred which killed mostly the young and the old. Around 1635 there were epidemics that killed about 2/3 of the population. Life was much more risky for the young in those days.

Philipp and Barbara had seven children and only one survived. Philipp and Margaretha had ten children; only Dorothea and four sons, Mattheus, Christianus, Philipp and Caspar survived. The son Philipp became a shoemaker; the others followed their father's occupation of brewing and innkeeping. Mattheus and Caspar moved to Laichingen, widely renowned for its quality of linen, and set up breweries there. In 1677 Matthaus bought the Krone Inn, and 1684 Matthaus also bought the Ochsen Inn for his brother Caspar. Mattheus is shown in one or more of his children's birth records as being the village attorney from 1683 until 1703. The third brother who learned to brew was Christian, christened Christianus, who remained in Feldstetten.

Philipp died in 1678; his age of 50 at death is clearly written, however is not likely accurate. For a male to marry at age 17 was practically unheard of and a special dispensation had to be obtained before the marriage could take place. In addition, the birth year of 1628 does not seem very likely when looking at the estimated birth years of his three siblings in Giengen. Further a Johannes Hilsenbeck born 1922 in Laichigen stated Philipp was born in 1618 in Giengen.

Philipp Hilsenbeck I and his wives are the first of the Hilsenbecks for whom there are no church records quoted as sources; thus the family data is based in part on research by Don Schwenk.

Bernhard Schwenk

M, ID# 8037, (8 Sep 1672 - 16 Apr 1740)
     Bernhard Schwenk was born on 8 Sep 1672 at Laichingen, Alb-Donau-Kreis, Wuerttemberg, Germany. He married Anna Maria Hilsenbeck, daughter of Philipp Hilsenbeck I and Barbara Dauner, on 15 Sep 1695 at Laichingen, Alb-Donau-Kreis, Wuerttemberg. Bernhard Schwenk married Anna Durss on 15 Oct 1707 at Feldstetten, Alb-Donau-Kreis, Wuerttemberg, Germany. Bernhard Schwenk died on 16 Apr 1740 at Feldstetten, Alb-Donau-Kreis, Wuerttemberg, at age 67.
      Bernhard Schwenk was born in Laichingen where the economy was based on agriculture as was true of the many other villages in this region where our ancestors lived. Because it was strictly agricultural, no bombs from World War II fell on these communities. However, the Thirty Years War between the Protestants and Catholics from 1618 until 1648 was particularly savage in Laichingen and the surrounding area. Because of this war and the wantonness of the Imperial troops around 1634, the church books documenting births, marriages and deaths of the Lutheran Evangelical community of Laichingen were destroyed.

Bernhard was a judge and a weaver; his six surviving sons became weavers and four of them married in Feldstetten. Andreas the first child of Bernhard and his first wife Maria -- she went by her middle name -- died on 28 Jun 1700. About six weeks later, another baby boy was born who was given the same name to honor Bernhard's father. Two years later on 20 Jun 1702, Cunrad was born who became an extraordinary man in the community. In Aug 1704 Andreas died. The following June, Johannes was born. Then in 1707 Maria, while in labor with her fifth child, died. The following words were entered into the death book by the pastor in Feldstetten: "On the 19th of April around 5 in the evening, Anna Maria, wife of Bernhard Schwenck, weaver, died while in childbirth, and the grave was filled with two. She was 39 years of age, and was buried on Tuesday afternoon in the accompaniment of a full church..." The situation did not allow for a long period of mourning before marrying again. Bernhard's new wife was Anna Durss whose father Johann, then deceased, was a member of the court and town council in the village of Nellingen, a community about 7 miles northeast of Feldstetten. Perhaps Bernhard, then at the age of 35, had become interested in the law, though the title of judge did not appear alongside his name in the birth registers until the year 1714 when Anna Barbara was born. During the years from 1708 through 1719 Bernhard and Anna had four girls and four boys.

The following excerpt is from the Feldstetten death book: The 16th of April on Holy Easter Eve, Bernhardt Schwenckh, local first judge and weaver passed on. His age was 67 years and 7 months. His final illness lasted 8 days, but with severe pains ex difficulta te emittendi Urinam natis [likely kidney stones.] He was buried Easter Monday with the accompaniment of a large gathering.
