Re: Identification of Altonshonbach, Bavaria(?), Germany #germany

Adam,
To find obscure German towns and villages, I use the late Dr Michael Rademacher's Ortsbuch which has been restored to the web at: https://treemagic.org/rademacher/www.verwaltungsgeschichte.de/ortsbuch39.html
All the place names beginning with "Alt" are listed at:
https://treemagic.org/rademacher/www.verwaltungsgeschichte.de/ortsbuchal.html
and the best match for your "Altonshonbach" whould have to be Altenschönbach in kreis Gerolzhofen, Bavaria.
It is roughly midway between Wurzburg and Bamberg. You should be able to find it on google maps.
The village has its own web site, and even has several pages on its Jewish community:
http://www.altenschoenbach.de/unsere-juedische-gemeinde/
There is brief mention of Kalmann Sandel Braun.

I hope this helps,
