(2) Conrad Schütz,
a weaver; married 19 May 1687 at Langensebold, Hessen (27 km east of Frankfurt),
daughter of Clas Eichelbörner
and his wife Margaretha,
according to church record. Anna had been
born in the nearby village of Rodenbach and baptized at Langensebold 15
August 1661, sponsored by Anna, wife of Peter Kirschner. Clas Eichelbörner
was buried at Langensebold 28 August 1709 "very old".
The baptismal records of Conrad and Anna's children show that between 1696
and 1705 Conrad and Anna moved from Langensebold to Lieblos near the village
of Niedergründau, about 5 kilometers northeast from Langensebold.
The Niedergründau church record of the July 1705 baptism of their
daughter Anna Elisabeth calls him Conrad Schütz, a lineweaver at Lieblos.
