The Reiss Families of Aschaffenburg and Hildmann

Barbara Reis, the wife of Johann Gallinger and later Conrad Resch, was born about 1772 and was of Hildmann, Saratov, Russia. In the First Settlers List, there are two men by the name of Reiss, either of whom could be Barbara's father. Both came from Aschaffenburg, Bavaria, Germany. They could have been related, perhaps even brothers, though this has not been confirmed.

The Reiss families settling in Hildmann were:
  1. Adam Reiss, born about 1729 in Aschaffenburg, Bavaria, Germany. He married Katharina -- and they settled in Hildmann 14 May 1767.
  2. Wilhelm Reiss, born about 1736 in Aschaffenburg, Bavaria, Germany. He married Katharina -- and they settled in Hildmann 14 May 1767.
