His daughter Marion Shellenberger O’Donnell was our grandmother Detailed history of Schallenberg/Schellenberg from Martin J. Shallenberger's book "Shallenbergers of Echo Mountain, Vol. 1". (I have not attempted to include all 79 pages from volume one or the 49 pages in volume two that cover history, only just some meaty sections that give you a jist of the content. This excerpt includes pages 13 - 21 , 27 - 30, and 37, without the numerous pictures and maps. I highly recommend getting a look at the book for the whole story.) Shallenberger - An Ancient Family The Shallenberger family is an ancient one. Its origin is lost in the obscurity of the Middle Ages. There are several European areas from which our ancestors may have migrated. For instance, the beautiful little town of Schallaburg, with its imposing Renaissance castle, lies about five kilometers south of the fortified abbey of Melk, Austria. Some 17 kilometers to the west is the Schallberg, a hill of more than 500 meters, located near the Danube, about four kilometers south-east of Grein and northeast of Ardagger, Austria. A Schellenberg hill, only 120 meters high, is located near the Danube, seven kilometers west of the former imperial city of Donauworth, in Bavaria. This hill was the scene of the battle of Blenheim, August 12, 1704, during the war of Spanish Succession. Two French armies with their ally, the elector of Bavaria, and the troops of the Duke-Bishop of Cologne, were defeated by the Imperialist's Grand Alliance of English, Dutch, and Prussian forces commanded by the English Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill, together with the Imperial general, Prince Eugene of Savoy. This victory freed Germany from French control. The Danube bridge at Donauworth was of strategic importance to the trade route between Italy and northern Germany and the town became one of the most powerful in the Bavarian region.
