Lebsack / Löbsack / Lipsack
Johannes Heinrich Lebsack was born 25 March 1716 in Steinheim, and his wife Eisabetha Katharina Pipp was born 11 Jan 1717 in Steinheim. They and three of their children, Johann Emmanuel, Johann Heinrich, and Anna Elisabeth, immigrated to Russia. Research on the Löbsack lineage goes back to the mid 1500’s in Germany, starting in Widdersheim and Oberwiddersheim, Germany, then moving to Steinheim, Germany. The lateral lines of Pipp, Becker, Hochstein, Hurtziger, Hoffmann, and Nagel have also been researched.
The Löbsack lineage goes back to the mid 1500s in Germany, starting in Widdersheim and Oberwiddersheim, then moving to Steinheim. Immanuel Löbsack was born in Steinheim, Hessen-Darmstadt, Germany, and arrived in Frank in 1767.
