Notes for George Michael Brenneisen and Anna Margretha Klein

1704 Maria Margaretha Klein, child of Hanß Georg Klein and Maria Catharina Klein, was baptized on October 7, 1704, in Sinsheim, Baden (Baden-Württemberg), Preußen (Germany). Maria Margaretha Klein was born on October 6, 1704. [1]

1723 Georg Michael Brenneisen, son of the late Joh. Georg Brenneisen, citizen and "des Gerichts" at Eichtersheim, married Anna Margretha, daughter of the late J. Georg Klein, court recorder in Kirchardt, on November 23, at Evangelisch Church, Hilsbach, Baden, Germany. [2] [3] The parish was listed as Weiler. [4] [5]

1724 J. Gottfried, child of Georg Michael (schumacher) and Anna Margretha Brenneisen, was born on December 1. George Michael was a burger and shoemaker of Weiler. Gottfried was baptized on December 3 with sponsors Gottfried Munger and Elisabeth his wife, at Evangelisch, Hilsbach, Heidelberg, Baden. [6] [7] [8] [9]

1727 Maria Barbara Brenneisen was born on March 6, 1727, at Sinsheim. She was baptized on March 9 with sponsors Johannes Klein, burger in Weiler, and his wife Anna Barbara. [10] [11]

1729 Joh. Jacob Brenneisen, child of Georg Michael Brenneisen and Anna Margretha Brenneisen, was baptized on August 14, 1729, in Sinsheim, Baden (baden-württemberg)Germany. Joh. Jacob Brenneisen was born on August 12, 1729. Sponsors were John Jacob Shwein burger ? and his wife. [12] [13] [14] The subsequent listing for Susanna suggests that she had the same parents and was born on August 21 and was baptized the same day with sponsors J Susanna, daughter of the late Jos. Wittmer, burger and shoemaker. Perhaps Jacob and Susanna were twins born 9 days apart.

1729 Susanna Brenneiser, child of Georg Michael Brenneiser and Anna Margretha Brenneiser, was baptized on September 21, 1729, in Sinsheim, Baden (baden-württemberg), Preußen (Germany). Susanna Brenneiser was born on September 21, 1729. [15] [16] This date conflicts with the birth of Joh. Jacob.

1730 Jerg Michel Brenneisen arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 5, 1730 on the ship "Alexander and Anne" [lists A, B, and C]. Also on board was Hans Veltin Brenneisen, who may have been related. [17] [18]

1730 "At the Courthouse of Philadelphia, September 5th, 1730.... A list was presented of the Names of Forty six Palatines, who with their families, making in all about one hundred and thirty persons, were imported here in the Ship Alexander & Ann, William Clymer, Master, from Rotterdam, but last from Deal." ... Geo. Michl. Brinsius. [19] [20]

1730 Based on records in Germany and America, it is plausible that Georg Michael Brenneisen came to America with wife Anna Margretha Klein, son Johann Jacob, son Gottfried, and daughter Maria Barbara. [21]

No further documents have been found for the family above. Marriages for Jacob Brenneisser and Mary Barbara Breneiss, in the notes below, could refer to two of the chidren.

1743 John Peter Wampler and Anna Barbara Breneiss [named as Mary Barbara Wampler in subsequent baptism sponsorships] were married on September 26, at Swatara. [22] The Swatara church was located in Bethel Township until after 1765 when members moved to Jonestown and continued using the old Swatara register.

1746 Anna Veronica Wampsler and Jacob Breneisser were married on January 13, at Lebanon. [23]

1751 Christina Minier and John Breneissen were married on January 21, at Bethel. [24]

1769 Michael Brenisen was named on the list of "Inmeats" [tenants or renters] in Lebanon Twp, Lancaster County. This was the first year that this list was displayed, so he may have been present in prior years. [25]

1770 Michael Brenizen was named on the list of "Inmates" in Lebanon Twp, Lancaster County. [26]

1771 Michael Brenneyson was named on the list of "Houss dennence" [tenants? renters?] in Lebanon Twp, Lancaster County. [27]

1779 Michael Breneison was taxed in 1779 in Lebanon Twp, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. [30]

Research Notes:

We are researching the parents of John Brenizer, who married Christina Minier in 1751. Based on the documents that we have found concerning his likely places of residence, which are shown at this website, and DNA evidence, we suspect that George Michael Brenneisen and Anna Margretha Klein were his parents. Some researchers have named John Brenizer as a son of Hans Valentin Brenneisen. [31] Hans Valentin Brenneisen and his children lived in Earl Twp, Lancaster County, according to multiple documents. Both Michael Brenneisen and the children that we attribute to him lived in Lebanon Twp, Lancaster County, according to multiple documents. Descendants of John Brenizer have DNA matches with descendants of the two other children of George Michael Brenneisen. We show, with little further documentation, George Michael Brenneisen as the father of our John Brenizer. We welcome further documentation about this relationship.

Grave markers at a private (Klein) burial ground on the west bank of the Northkill Creek, about a mile northward of Bernville, Pennsylvania show the following inscription: [32] David Klein, b. March 2, 1746; died Jan'y 28, 1814; m. Elizabeth Breneisen, b. Nov. 8, 1750; died Aug. 4, 1827.
