Carden on the Moselle

Many years ago I bought back with me from a visit to the Moselle valley in Germany a bottle of excellent wine with a Carden (or was it Karden?) label from the village of Karden. I have now received, from Clare Coulburn, this photograph taken in Karden by Fred Calladine of Northampton. Double-click on the image to read the words on the banner. Fred also photographed a tablet in the church reading Pro Memoria Wilhelm Cadenbach, Pastor Bonus in Carden 1851-1890. Clearly the village name (and the monastery there) were originally spelled CARDEN. Perhaps one day a connection with our family may be found.
