re her birth place of Argenburg, North Rhine Westphalia, Preußen

Unfortunately Argenburg is one of those place names which appear only in family histories - it may have existed, but there is no current placename in Germany of Argenburg. I have no German, but the one German entry I did find for argen burg means "evil castle" according to google translate. Argneburg is also a German surname, so it may have referred to someone's lands or manor at the time.

North Rhine-Westphalia was formed in 1946 from two distinct regions of Germany, with different cultural identities.

The Rhineland has been through many territorial changes between France and Germany and boundaries have also changed many times, so it would take a lot of links to track it thorugh all its history, which is why I have referenced a map: 714 Kingdom of the Franks map by Paul Vidal de la Blache. Atlas général d'histoire et de géographie. 1912 [].

During the Kingdom of the Franks, the Rhine territory was from the Rhine River to the Scheldt and would have been part of the Duchy of Austrasia.

Westphalia would have been part of the Duchy of Saxony, Kingdom of the Franks in 729

Preußen is the German word for Prussia Prussia originated in 1525 as the Duchy of Prussia Westphalia and the Rhineland were both 20th provinces of Prussia, which probably accounts for the confusion.
