The area is Alsace, not Alsace-Lorraine. Alsace-Lorraine as a political entity existed only during the German annexation 1870-1919. In 1842 and 1865, Alsace was French, not German. 
Filae has supposedly indexed all Alsace records held by the departmental archives of Haut-Rhin and Bas-Rhin, but there is no Lehman(n) Marx.

Lehmann Marx (my great great grandfather) was born in 1842 in Alsace Lorraine/Germany, father’s name probably Samuel, mother’s name unknown. He immigrated to the US in 1865. I have all his census records (New York), his death record (1905), several obituaries, most of his 14 children’s birth records. I have searched for 25 years and can’t find what city he was born in. I have information about his wife’s family (Meyer from Drachenbronn) two generations and more beyond her. They did not get married in Drachenbronn or any nearby town, and I’ve searched a lot of them, but I believe they were married before they immigrated. In January I sent the Livingston Masonic Library a check with a letter asking if they had his application, but if I ever hear from them I don’t expect to learn anything new.


Where else can I search? I don’t think I’m missing anything obvious, but I’m stumped. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you for any help.
