Heilbronn, Wuerttemberg [Duchy]: said by the Reinwald FSL to be homeUC to the Laub family.  Heilbronn was then an independent country, not part of Wuerttemberg, but it was surrounded on three sides by Wuerttemberg lands and the family may have obtained Wuerttemberg travel documents, just in case.  Same as the next two entries.
