The earliest generation of the Blessing family is found in the township of Schlat located in a region known as Donaukreis. This region is located in Württemberg in Germany. The largest city in this region is Göppingen.

Members of the Blessing family resided predominantly in Schlat, until one member of the 4th generation married a woman form ‘outside’ and settled in Sparwiesen to run the farm of his father i/l.
