Duke and duchess Hesch of Rheinhessen, Hessen c. 1835?

Posted: 1199284207000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Hesch, Biller
I'm trying to verify some research started by another family member and am coming up very short on information. I can't seem to even verify a noble family of this name, but I don't know exactly where to look. Family legend has it that Clara Hesch came to the US after marriage to a common laborer. There is supposedly a passport hanging on someone's wall that states she is a princess, and he a laborer, but I've never personally seen it. Her parents were Antonius Hesch (christ. Jan 20 1810) and Agnetis Biller.

I am also looking for anything I can read to give a historical perspective of this region, and what exactly it meant to be a nobel in that place and period.
