Eschelbronn (Baden-Württemberg, Germany)
Eschelbronn near Dillsberg, in the former Palatine region of Heidelberg, has been at least since 1717 the home of Swiss Mennonites, leaseholders on the estates of Baron von Feltz. It is not certain whether the name Bamberger found in the Mennonite list of 1717 belongs there or in the Jewish list drawn up at the same time. The same list names the Muselmann family, and the list of 1724 also the Pletscher family. A table of inhabitants, buildings, and farms in the Palatinate, 1790, designates two Mennonite families, presumably Pletscher and Muselmann (Records of the Palatinate, Generallandesarchiv at Karlsruhe).
