In September 2001 Ken and Carol Engle flew to Germany to meet up with cousin Adell Crouch and her Husband Harry. She had contacted Henri who lived in Strasbourg and we four paid him a two day visit. Henri took us to Klingenthal where our ancestor Clement Engels (Engle) was born and which has a small museum dedicated to the iron workers like Clements father Johann Peter Engels (Sr). Clement was baptized at the nearest German Reformed Church which was in Wolfesheim on the outskirts of Strasbourg. Johann Peter married Susanna Vautrin in 1744 in Rauwiller about an hours drive out into the Alsace country side.
