I'm not certain when the photo was taken, my guess would be in the late 1920s or early 1930s. Joshua Sandage is in the middle, the other men are Clarence and Thomas Sandage, but I don't know which one is which. The woman on the left is Mary (Sandage) Laneve and the woman on the right is Effie (Sandage) Walling, my grandmother. Joshua Sandage's wife is not pictured but was Sarah (Hendershot) Sandage. submitted by Mark Hadlund KRAM95@cox.net

Naumburger Hof in Germany
Contributed by Annette Schaumann

Naumburger Hof - the ancestral home of our Hinneschied/Hendershot ancestor

A Hof, which we might call a farm today, was roughly equivalent to an English manor owned by an absentee landlord. A nobleman might have owned many hofs and rented them to common farmers. There were a great may of these Hofs in Germany and many still appear on local maps today. The Naumburger Hof existed long before the arrival of the Hinneschied family. Our immigrant Michael's father, Wilhelm Hineschied and his brother-in-law, Mathias Krebs, a trained carpenter, leased Naumburger Hof in 1673. They rebuilt house, stables and barns. Wilhelm died in 1688 and his son, Michael, immigrated to America in 1710. A later generation rebuilt the house in 1743. This house with the date stone over the door is what you find there today.

Naumburger Hof is in the Rhineland Pfalz part of Germany just outside the village of Ginsweiler. Meisenheim, where Wilhem Hinneschied would have paid his taxes, is near by.
