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. [5]

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. [6] [7] The parish was listed as Weiler. [8] [9]

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 Munch and Elisabeth his wife, at Evangelisch, Hilsbach, Heidelberg, Baden. [10] [11] [12] [13]

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. [14] [15]

1729 There were two records, listed adjacent in the churchbook, for births about a month apart. Perhaps Jacob and Susanna were twins born several days apart.

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. [16] [17] [18] 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.

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. [19] [20] This date conflicts with the birth of Joh. Jacob.

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. [29]

George Michael Brenneisen might be the Michael Brenneisen taxed in Lebanon Twp, Lancaster County, 1669-79. Marriages for Jacob Brenneisser and Mary Barbara Breneiss, in the notes below, could refer to two of his children. [30]

1743 John Peter Wampler and Anna Barbara Breneiss [named as Mary Barbara Wampler in subsequent baptism sponsorships] were married on September 26, at Swatara.

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, as documented 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. [48] 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: [49] David Klein, b. March 2, 1746; died Jan'y 28, 1814; m. Elizabeth Breneisen, b. Nov. 8, 1750; died Aug. 4, 1827.

1827 Elizabeth Breneisen Klein died on August 4 and was buried at Klein Cemetery, Berks County, Pennsylvania. Elizabeth Breneisen Klein was born on November 8, 1750. [50]
