The Catholic Church located in Hemsbach contains the marriage records of many Bonnstetter family members. Michael Bonnstetter arrived in the United States in 1848. His brother Martin followed a few years later. All with the name Bonnstetter in the United States are related and are in Michael and Martin's Family tree.

Bill J. Bonnstetter, Dave Bonnstetter (son of Bill) and Ron Bonnstetter (Bill’s brother), all have visited Salzbach and Hemsbach several times. On one of the trips, a war memorial was found memorizing those from Salzbach who had lost their lives in the war with France in 1870. Johanna Bonnstetter was listed and the name on the memorial was spelled similar to the spelling we find today.
