Dear Louis Reitzammer,I have some Reitzsamer's in my files, but not in the area and the time you are looking for.
My Reitzamer's lived in Aschbach, which is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the north from Schellert. The different spelling is quite normal, since the forming of family names was not finished at that times (around 1700/1800). The writers wrote the names down as they understood it.
If you are interested, I could forward two pages of my "Nachfahrenliste" to you. It starts with Lorentz Reitzsamer, born about 1670 and buried on May 19, 1732 (age 62 years). His profession was hammersmith.
Best regards
