Peter Riedesel (1839-1891), born in Leidenhofen, moved to the then-German area called Diedenhofen in what is now called Thionville in the French province of Lorraine. He had ten children from two marriages; three from the second marriage eventually went to America. (Do not confuse this location with Diedenshausen, a neighbor village to Wunderthausen).
