Place of origin
Gersfeld, Fulda, Hessen, Germany

Johannes Reinick and Margaretha Gutmann married on 20 Jaunuary 1739 in Gersfeld (then part of the Herrschaft Gersfeld of the Reichsrittern von Ebersberg).  Johannes Reinick died on 17 October 1741.  Margaretha Gutmann was baptized on 31 July 1717, the daughter of Balter Gutmann and Anna Siefert.  Margaretha's ancestors can be traced back several generations in the Gersfeld parish records.  

Johannes and Margaretha's daughter Anna Maria Reinick was baptized 23 November 1739 in Gersfeld. She married there on 14 June 1766 to Andreas Reiter

There are several other individuals with the Reinick surname reported on the 1798 Census: Joachim, Friedrich, and Christina.  At this point it is unclear if these Reinicks are related to Anna Maria and her parents.
