At the "Cincinnti Breweries" I found this:
Johann Georg Sohn was born on October 20, 1817 in Windesheim, Bavaria, Germany. His father owned a small Brewery and vineyard.

I think Bavaria is wrong, we have only one Windesheim on the Rhein river, a vineyard area.

I'm sorry, Falk is right. The "Cincinnati Breweries" say Windsheim not Windesheim, my mistake.
The town named today "Bad Windsheim" in Franconia /Bavaria.
