Notes for Johann Tobias Geiger
Feuerbach is a little bit northwest of Stuttgart in the middle of Germany. The New York TImes once ran a travel note about Hotel Geiger, “an elegant 50-room” former farm house in Berchtesgaden that is “run by the fifth generation of Geigers.” Margery thought these Geigers were related to her ancesters, but since Berchtesgaden is a suburb of Salzburg, some 500 km to the southeast, if there is a family relation it must be a distant one.

Carol Schatz, wife of William Schatz, grandson of Johann Tobias Geiger, reports his name as “Christen” and his wife’s as Barbara (letter to Margery Mayer, 01/15/1985).
