- Apr 16, 2010I am trying to find more information on my ancestors in Gernamy. I know
that my great great grandfather was Abraham Heisser. I migrated to the
United States in April, 1840. He was born in Reihnkreis Beiern Conton,Germany
on October 5, 1810. He died October 6, 1881. He married Helena Mader,
April 15, 1815 in the same place. His Father Johann Jacob Hausser (notice the
change in spelling) born in Dirnstein, Germany, March 26, 1776. He
married Maria Magdalena Keck February 7, 1802. She was born August 12, 1784.
in the same place.
Johann's parents were Rudolf Heusser (unsure if that spelling is e or
should be a), born in Dirnstein, Germany and Katharina Franziska Walther, born
in same place
Maria's parents were Thomas Keck, born 1746 Dirnstein , Germany and
Helena's parents were Nickolaus Keck born April 11, 1778 and Michelina
Margarethe Nossel born September 25, 1778 It looks like Nikolaus's parents and
Maria's parents were the same which would make my great great grandparents
Michelina's parents were Kasper Nossel, born 1745 and Maris Margarethe
BackmannThey were all born in Dirnstein.
I would like to know anything about them I could like occupations, church
affiliation, military involvement, and any information available on the
process and decision to migrate to the United States. I would also like to
verify the geneology information as some of the same first and middle names
are showing up for different people.
Thank you so much,
