The Glan River flows north through Meisenheim on its way to
the Nahe, which it meets a few miles above Niederhausen an der
Nahe. Our earliest records of the Meÿ family show that they
lived in the small village of Callbach and attended the large
church in Meisenheim, about as early as 1567. Today a road connects
through Callbach to Alsenz, where Judge Johannes Meÿ, of
the fourth generation, lived throughout his adult life.
