Franz Genealogy

Joseph Anton Franz was Amelia Franz Bumen's father. He married Maria Ana Merklin. The Bumens were Catholic and Gottlieb studied to be a priest. He had a large library of books and they are located today in the preservation room of Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana.

If anyone can translate this, that would be very helpful
I can read Jofaf Anton Franz...February 1796 and Maria Ann Merklin...January 1800...
Amelia Franz Bumen's death certificate lists father as Jos France, b in Baden Germany.
It lists the birthplace of her mother as Baden Germany, but does not list the name of her mother.
Here is a Franz family record sheet that was mailed to me in the 1980's:
