This begins the Bender line of Hans Bender who is our earliest known Bender ancestor as of today due to a Bender relative's work  in Germany by the name of Ian Jenz.

1. Hans Bender, the older,  c.. 1510--<1596, born in Rettigheim.  The name of his parents and his wife is unknown, the books just called his wife "witib" -widow in 1595.  Hans Bender, the older had at least one child..

1.1. Bastian Bender, c. 1545--c.1612.  the only known child of Hans Bender, the older.  Bastian Bender had at least one child.

1.1.1.  Hans Bender, the younger,  c. 1575--, married the daughter of Hans Metzler (maybe it's sr. and jr. because the old Hans was still alive when the young Hans was born, unlikely or not?)  had at least  two children.

1.1.1.1. Adam Bender, <1595-->1638, the first of two children of Hans Bender, the younger and the daughter of Hans Metzler born most likely in Rettigheim, Baden. Adam was married in Rettigheim in 1615 but the name of Adam's wife is unknown. They had at least five children.

Adam's first child was a son by the name of Sebastian Bender, 1615--1688, who was born and died in Rettigheim, Baden. The vast amount of information on Sebastian Bender's line poses size limits for one web page so all subsequent data for Sebastian's specific family line is on a different web site: http://mctiernan.com/hans.htm. Sebastian's family line begins with the number 1.1.1.1.1.

I have had to redo the entire numbering convention based on the February 2015 new information from Ina Jenz. The full list of 1.1.1.1. Adam Bender's five known children and their descendants using the recent numbering scam is as follows:

1.1.1.1.1. first child, Sebastian Bender, 1615--1688, for his line of descent see http://mctiernan.com/hans.htm

1.1.1.1.2. second child, Johann Jakob Bender, 1620--1688, see below

1.1.1.1.3. third child, a daughter, given name unknown, Unnamed Moninger, nee Bender, 1625--, see below

1.1.1.1.4. the fourth child, Johann Bender,  1625--8-30-1691, see below

1.1.1.1.5. the fifth child, Anna Weis, nee Bender, 1638--1679, see below

Here below is the start of the line of Adam Bender's second child, Johann Jakob Bender.

1.1.1.1.2. Johann Jakob Bender, 1620--1688, the second of five children of Adam Bender and his unknown wife born in Rettigheim and died in Rotenberg, Baden. Johann Jakob Bender was born one year before the Pilgrims had the first Thanksgiving in Massachusetts.

From here on down every individual should have 1.1.1. added as a preface to it's current number. So 1.2.1. Heinrich Bender below should really be 1.1.1.1.2.1. Heinrich Bender with same being done for all descendents going down through time.

You might wonder why Johann, the father of six children would go off with the French Army to invade Russia at 56 years of age. His sons were grown and Napoleon might have paid a lot of money for soldiers. Some time ago, I was getting a haircut in the world famous Pat's Barber shop in Wayne, PA and a Frenchman was also getting his hair cut. He told me that at that time in history, Napoleon paid a lot of money to be one of his soldiers, meaning paid service was a new concept in the military. I do not know that much about German history at that time but my guess is that when an army marches down the village main street you did what they told you to do or you died. It may not have mattered if it was a French Army or your own army. This may be some vague explanation of why Johann did this. Maria Juliana Bender and Johann Wagner had the following six children.

Nikolaus was a farmer and the family lived at Rotenberger Str. 25 in Rettigheim. This family seems to have had an very high infant mortality rate.

Notes for ILSE OTTILIE WESTERMANN:
From Ilse Schneider of Östringen in October 2001: Ten years ago I visited my grand aunt Katherine Cioni in Detroit and am still in contact with her.

From Ilse on 30 May 2002 regarding the Feast of Corpus Christi in the Catholic Church: "yes, we have another holiday it´s called "Fronleichnam" (Corpus Christi or Corpus Domini) and will be celebrated the second Thursday after Pentecost. The priest celebrate the Mass outside on an altar who is made of flowers. He show the Monstrance (with the Corpus Christi) to everyone and then all people follow him in a procession out in the fields and nature. The families made on every street crossing another altarpiece of flowers. The roads between the altars were covered with flower leafs and fresh cutted gras, the houses are decorated with flags, flowers and figures of Maria and Jesus etc. That happens earlier, now with the high traffic it is not possible to close the roads and do a detour.

Today that procession go around the Östringer Catholic Church, what is also nice with the old houses in background. Also it was too much work to create the altars, the women were not longer stay-at-home-mothers, they worked in companies/factories. I remember me that time: My aunt Klara designed the picture on a sheet of paper. Friday noon we children had to go into gardens and fields and collect the flowers. My aunts (they were real artists in that case) gave us the orders in what kind and color, then we put then in water to be fresh on Sunday. Saturday noon it start the most joyful job, we children picked only the bloom and the adults create the altar picture. Sunday early morning the men had to cut gras and covered the roads with and put red rose leafs etc. between."
