We have found out that between 1845 and 1855 300 people of the Montabaur
region emigrated into Texas. Among the founders of the city of Fredericksburg
were the families: Johann Meurer from Heiligenroth, Peter Pehl from
Holler, Jakob Metzger, Joh. Friedrich Metzger and Johann Metzger
from Kadenbach, Peter Fuchs from Neuhäusel, Johann Keller, Johann
Klein, Johann Leyendecker, Christian Vogel and Anton Kraus from
On June 29th,1995 the council of the borough of Montabaur approved
on having a partnership with the city of Fredericksburg.
A party of 40 people from the borough of Montabaur took part in
the 150th anniversary of the foundation of Fredericksburg. During
the festivities the twinning documents were signed by Mrs Linda
Langerhans, mayor of Fredericksburg and by Herr Dr. Paul Possel-Dölken,
mayor oft the borough of Montabaur. That was to certify the links
of a wonderful friendship.
Best wishes for this first partnership
of the borough of Montabaur.
