Special thanks go to my grandson Florian, on whose initiative everything was created.
With his suggestions, contacts and photos, Ulli Fobbe also plays a large part in this site. You can read a lot on the fobbe.de website.
Horst Stolp should also be mentioned, who made his notes and the family register of Johann Tusche/Maria Bigge available.
Tobias Bracht also contributed his part to the side. His personal memories and documents are worth reading at ebbof.de.
Last but not least, the information from Franz Josef and Maria Dicke from Obermarsberg should be mentioned, who not only has the Marsberg family tree of Libor Tegethoff in his database and has shown us a line up to Charlemagne, but also created the family tree of the Frese family .
The Warburg genealogical tables, made available online as a pdf download by the Westphalia-Lippe Regional Association, have also been included in this family tree. There are a few nice stories to read about, among other things, the inheritance of Corvey Abbey.
My aunt Thea left me her family tree and my brother Antonius sent me some death certificates and photos, and then there were also Karl-Heinz and Marie-Luise Runte with their contributions.
Through the notes of my uncle Franz I received the necessary information about the ancestors on my mother's side. In the meantime, many church registers have been put online under the Matricula project, so that the data from the FamilySearch database can be seen as confirmed, but some have also been corrected.
There was a connection to the knights "von Rump(f)" and their later ancestral seat, today's "Haus Wenne" near Eslohe. The "nobilis" Caspar Rumpf marries Anna Margaretha de LaPaix from Arnsberg, is probably also named in the will of Anna Elisabeth von Rumpf and von Weichs (heirs of the "Haus Wenne" ) are godparents to his children.
Presumably economic reasons caused the blacksmith Johann Josef Limberg (my great-great-grandfather) and some of his siblings to leave Reiste. After the death of his father (+1848) he went to Grevenstein, Clemens(tailor) and Caspar(carpenter) in the USA and Caspar went on to Australia. Clemens took the name of the farm Roggemann as his family name in the USA. In the Sauerland people were often better known by their house- or farm- name or by an additional name. Christian Limberg from Dorlar married the heiress of the Rogge(mann) farm at (Nieder)Reiste in 1737.
as far as Franz Frese
The tree has grown again: I added the descendants of Bernard (John B.) Frese from the USA as best I could.

Now the Willerscheidts from Obermarsberg are also partially listed. I started with Bernard Willerscheidt (*1796).
He came to Obermarsberg with his parents between 1806 and 1809. His father was there initially as a "Fruchtmesser" in the administration. His second marriage was to the youngest daughter of the mayor, Hermann Josef Steinhoff.
The descendants of Johannes Gies (*1779) have been completed. When my great-great-great-grandfather died at the age of 32, Josef Gies (*1783) and my great-great-great-grandmother Christine Schulte (*1782) married in 1811. Josef (5) and Ferdinand (2) now grow up in the Gies family. Stepbrother Anton Gies' daughter Maria (Mary) emigrated to the USA after 1880/81 to marry John Mette.
Added the Heinrich(Henry) Gerdes family - Franziska(Francis) Rumpf, who in 1867 decided to start a new existence in Texas/USA.

The Philipp Fobbe 1803 branch has been revised.
About 50 descendants were added, but not with a screenshot of the birth, marriage and death documents, but only with a link to the corresponding entries at matricula-online.
This should complete the branch, as far as available online.

I added a new branch starting from Hunold Fobbe +1664 ending with Reinhard Fobbe from Munich. The close points of contact result from the families of Caspar Roland *1756, Franz Steinhoff *1738 or Philipp Hillebrand 1773, to name just a few. Thanks for the information.
