Mark and William,
I strongly suspect that I am a descendent of Franz Perreng,Biring, Piringer and Cath. Adam.
My great grandfather Franz Biring was born in 1844 in Seultor. They might just be his grandparents.
Also, on Ftdna I am a dna match for William Paul Knuttel. Might that be you?
We communicated here before I discovered the match.

See attached for 5 pages of Adams, which should get you all of the male side in St. Hubert in the early years. These are the first 5 pages in the book; take note of the entry above that for Franz Adam. A Johann Adam who also marries a Perrein, and she is Catharina, vs. Franz Adam's wife who is Catharina Anna--brothers marrying sisters?
There is nothing immediately obvious for Franz Adam's wife except her listing there as Catharina Anna Perrein. However, this early St. Hubert book is a mess of variant spellings, and not even always in any kind of logical order, so it bears more research. From a quick look, it might be that her family came from Bogarosch or Nakodorf, but also there are indications there of "Lorang Kath" and "Loth.". I'll let you know if I find anything else.

Thanks so much, Bill. Was there anything for Franz Adam (Adam is the surname)?
