Howard,
I was born and raised and raised up in that region, but I wasn't able to lacte Rheinberg on the map.
There are towns/ villages like:
- Rheinfelden (on both sides of the Rhine river, german and swiss, near Basel)
- Rheinsberg (part of Murg, Baden)
- Rheinheim (near Waldshut, today part of Kuessaberg, my home town)
- Rheinau (near Schaffhausen, Switzerland, but german)

Howard,
thanks, with your help I was able to find Rheinburg on the map. I think it's today part of Gailingen. I should have known it because as a student I had a summer job on a construction site in Gailingen several years ago.
The actual telephone listing shows no entry for Maurer in Gailingen. There's one Maurer family in Buesingen (a german exclave in Switzerland, direction Schaffhausen from Gailingen), and four Maurer families in Gottmadingen which includes Randegg, the next town to Gailingen. No idea if they are related to you. I know the Maurer surname also from other towns near Waldshut and Laufenburg.
A search at the online index for emigrees from the Ba-Wue area (Generallandesarchiv Karlsruhe) showed no match, but this just indicates that your ancestor probably left for America without a permission from the local authority.
