Blümel Abraham of Bad Dürkheim, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany #germany

Ralph Baer

I recently read that a Jewish woman named Blümel Abraham converted to Christianity in 1715. She was then called Maria Augusta Blümelin and was living in Dürkheim in the Grafschaft Leiningen (now Bad Dürkheim, Rheinland-Pfalz). Later that year two men named Abraham Malsch and Bähr were investigated for violently attacking her. I won't go into further details. Abraham Malsch was my 5th-great-grandfather Abraham Isaac of Malsch (a.k.a. Alt Abraham). Conceivably he was Blümel’s father although he may have been too young to have been the father of someone who would have converted in 1715. I have seen no other reference to Bähr, but he could have also been a relative and perhaps was the source of my family name.
I am writing on the off chance that someone is familiar with these people. If Blümel had descendants, it is doubtful that anyone here is one, but it can’t hurt to ask.
