Frum Berlingen (Metzger) was born in 1695 and passed in 1775. I believe Frum or his father was a butcher, hence the name change to Metzger. Frum’s son, Juda Metzger was born 1733 in Berlinchingen and passed in 1805. Juda Metzger had a son named, Samuel Metzger. Samuel was born 5/3/1763 and passed in 1830. Samuel married Roesle (maiden unknown). Children were Loeb Metzger, born 1796/1797; Katharina Metzger, born 1798; Judas Metzger, born 2/22/1800; Judel Metzger, born 5/12/1803. Metzger family reports from Alemannia Judaica researchers and the Stuttgart archives of Jewish archives.
Katharina Metzger emigrated to Freudental, Bessarabia, Russia and married Jakob Friedrich Braun in 1823 (no documentation showing she was ever baptized so the community most-likely did not know of her parents). Katharina and Jakob moved to Hoffnungstal before bearing children. Children were Johann Friedrich Braun, born 04/26/1825 (married Karolina Schuett); Katharina Margaretha Braun, born 10/01/1826; Jakob Friedrich Braun, born 12/05/1829 (married Christina Schaber); Anna Maria Braun, born 03/08/1833 (married Johann Jakob Schlichenmaier); Katharina Braun, born 1836 (passed 1843); Christina Braun, born 05/28/1838 (married Martin Herzke); Johannes Braun, born 09/14/1840 (married Juliana Katharina Hein).
