Kating (Schleswig-Holstein, Germany)
Kating was a village in Germany in the south of the Eiderstedt region below Tönning a.d. Eider, Schleswig-Holstein, where several Mennonite families lived in the last half of the 17th century and the first half of the 18th; e.g., David Lourensen, a smith who belonged to the Frisian congregation at Friedrichstadt. Mennonites from the Rhenish Palatinate also settled here, among them the Strichler family. Through mixed marriages and emigration Mennonitism here soon became extinct.
