Research Notes:

Theobaldshof is the name of a small village located in the community of Tann (Rhön), in the Ulster valley, near Fulda, just over what used to be the East German border. It is about as close to the exact center of modern day Germany as you can get. Tann (Rhön) is in the district Fulda (Hessen): (at the border to Thuringia and Bavaria)
