Carl’s descendants live through the US. I have information on this.
Despite some effort, I have not been able to tie Carl to the von Bibra family. There are other people in Germany with the last name “Bibra” with no known connection to the “von Bibra” family or could be from the “von Bibran-Modlau” family which is sometimes referred to as “von Bibra”.
