Rohrbach, a small village in the Palatinate, Germany, situated near Kaiserslautern, between Sembach and Wartenberg. Anabaptists were tolerated here even before the Thirty Years' War under Kolb von Wartenberg. An official report of 25 July 1605, says, "The deceased Konrad Kolb did not keep his agreement not to admit other Anabaptists after the death of the three living there then. In Rohrbach on the Kolb estate there is still an old Anabaptist, Hans Gramm, a miller with five sons, who have their meeting at Frankenstein; outwardly their attitude is friendly and neighborly, but they mislead the members of the parish who are employed in their service." At Rohrbach there is still a Mennonite family, whose forefathers, however, came from Switzerland after the Thirty Years' War.
