Partial list of attendees at a religious meeting at Neckarwimmersbach, Eberbach, Grand Duchy of Baden, on 27 Dec. 1850:
Addressing (i.e., preaching to) the “assembly” was “old Mr. Wesch of Blittersbach,” implied to be a local “parson.”
Present at the entry of the house, but not inside the “assembly,” were Henry Mayers, a naturalized citizen & resident of Baltimore County, Maryland (but a native of Neckarwimmersbach) and an unnamed teacher of Eberbach.
Within the “assembly” were included these inhabitants of Neckarwimmersbach:
Georg Peter Rupp
Johann Georg Leutz
Georg Peter Salzmann
Johann Georg Nix
the wife of the shoemaker Peter Lenz
widow Michael Edelmann
widow Johann Georg Munch
Anna Lisbetha Seipp
Mr. Mayers was jailed by the Amtmann at Eberbach for allegedly preaching to the “assembly” without having the proper authority to do so, and the attendees listed above were said to be witnesses who could vouch for his “having entered the room only when the assembly dispersed.”
