Early Präuner Ancestors

Since initally publishing my Präuner genealogy  I have had the very good fortune of being contacted by a young lady  living in  Germany   today  who  turns out to be a cousin of mine.  Her name is  Carolin Wackler  and she is descended from Johann Friedrich Präuner who was the brother of my great grandfather, Georg Carl Präuner, known in America as Carl Praeuner.   It was  the information  on her  branch of the family that led me to find the church records for the Präuners before they came to live in Kupferhof and finally Wüstenau in Germany. My direct ancestor may be found  below as  person  XII. A. 3.  Johann Philipp Präuner.  You may click on his name to follow the  link to my  original  web page  that continues the descendancy down to the Wüstenau branch of the Präuners. There is an additional line of Präuners that I have found in Binselberg, that of the descendants of one Job Präuner. I do not know if he is the brother of my Leonhard because I have no church records establishing that relationship. Both men appear to have been born within about 10 years of each other,  a strong indication of some relationship.
