    Notes 
    • Bonnie-Margaret Jacobs writes that he was called Hans Jerg, and that he migrated to Plüderhausen Parish, about 1700...many miles to the east, and a bit to the south, of Aalen. In earlier times the town had been called Pliederhausen and then Bliederhausen. It is split down the middle by the Rems River and the surrounding hills are given to vineyards and orchards, the town communally owning as well a large stand of beechwood.

      BonnieMargaret indicated Plüderhausen was a small town on the main road from Stuttgart to Nurnberg. On the map, Plüderhausen appears nearly equidistant between Aalen and Stuttgart, slightly northeast of Lorch.

      BonnieMargaret further noted, on page 50 of her unpublished 1981 manuscript, that on the record of the marriage of Hans Jerg Benkelmann/Binkelmann to Margaretha Müller, he is identified as a "wannanmacher and citizen and subject of the Earl of Wollwarth-Laubach." She shows that Plüderhausen parish records show him as a son of "Albrect Benkelmann, Waiblingen und Catharina, geb. Roter." Bonnie wrote that the occupation of wannanmacher is uncertain in our modern times, but translates loosely as "pool maker," and likely refers to some sort of copper tub, perhaps for bathing, or for water basins used in the public works of the town.

      Hans Jerg died in Plüderhausen on May 2, 1775 "after a long sick-bed, aged 87 years and 9 days, son of Allbrect Benckelmann, subject of the Earl of Wollwarth-Laubach and parish-curatot in Waiblingen in the parish of Fachsenfeld." Usually this is the extent of the record of death entered by the pastors, but the pastor of Plüderhausen added the following additional note "the oldest man in the village, he had been a valuable citizen of much usefulness to the community and was noted for his great wisdom." (Jacobs, p. 51).

      In the chapter of her manuscript titled "The Migration to Pluderhausen," BonnieMargaret statesd that the familienregister entry for Hans Jerg Binckelmann (Johann Georg) was abstracted from the actual parish records in Plüderhausen by Friedrich Wollmershauser, professional genealogist of Stuttgart.

    • BonnieMargaret Jacob's wrote, in her unpublished 1981 manuscript, that Hans Albrect married and raised his family near Waiblingen, on the outskirts of Aalen. But his sons would have to move on as the area was not large enough to sustain its growing population. Some of these descendants probably went onto Aalen as their cousins had.
