Johann Baptist Hutsteiner from Eberhardsreuth moved to Miesberg, a village not far away. His son Johann Michael Hutsteiner  also founded a family in Miesberg, as well as his grandson Mathias Hutsteiner.

The village close to the town of Thurmansbang in the Bavarian Forest was one of several dissolved villages by end of the 19th century as the life there was extremely harsh and the inhabitants were unable to do their living there.

Within the forest You’ll be able to find some ruins still existing there.
