My Maternal Lineage: Update 3; Final Update

Two weeks ago I discussed the updates I had found on my direct maternal lineage; you can find the post here. At that point, the following was all I knew on the oldest member of my maternal line:

5. Maria Obergfell
b. unknown
d. unknown
m. Jacob Löhrer; 21 Aug 1660, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Hans Jacob Löhrer, b. 21 Jun 1669, Schondel, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Hans Georg Löhrer, b. 17 Jan 1678, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Barbara Löhrer, b. 24 Apr 1679, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Anna Maria Löhrer, (above)

As of Tuesday, I've made some new discoveries that will likely be the end of my maternal lineage (with the exception of needing to find the death of Maria Obergfell). The Hornberg Evangelical parish records begin in 1635, so I cannot go any further. I was actually extremely lucky to have found what I was able to on Tuesday. Here are the results of that research:

5. Maria Obergfell
b. 13 Mar 1635 (illegitimate)
d. unknown
m. Jacob Löhrer; 21 Aug 1660, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Hans Jacob Löhrer, b. 21 Jun 1669, Schondel, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Hans Georg Löhrer, b. 17 Jan 1678, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Barbara Löhrer, b. 24 Apr 1679, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Anna Maria Löhrer, (above)

6. Ursula Joos
b. abt 1609, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
d. 13 Nov 1676, Schondel, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
m. Erhardt Obergfell; 17 May 1636, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Anna Maria Obergfell, (above) (illegitimate)
*Christina Obergfell, b. 06 Mar 1640, Schondel, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Jacob Obergfell, b. 14 Mar 1644, Schondel, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Lucia Obergfell, b. 24 Jun 1646, Schondel, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Barbara Obergfell, b. 10 Jan 1648, Schondel, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Anna Obergfell, b. 14 Jan 1650, Schondel, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Johanna Obergfell, b. 08 Nov 1652, Schondel, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany
*Johannes Obergfell, b. 08 Dec 1655, Schondel, Hornberg, Ortenau, Baden, Germany

My maternal line ends with an Ursula Joos, according to her age at death born about 1609. According to her marriage record, she was the daughter of Georg Joos. Her husband, Erhadt Obergfell, was the son of an Erhardt Obergfell. They were the only Obergfell noticeably living in the Hornberg parish in the 1630's-1650's.
