John Neizer ~ born November 24, 1844 in Ghana, West Africa. Places mentioned as his possible birthplace are Saltpond or Accra.
Middle family name could be Amono as he had a gold handmade ring with the initials JAN. He is thought to be from the Ashinti Tribe.
Came to the US 'allegedly' to be educated???
His money was stolen aboard ship - ended up making his way in Salem, Massachusetts.
Married, had a family and died in Salem, MA., in 1906.
Widow was Catherine Ropes(Bradford)Neizer.
Would like to find out more about John/Johann Neizer/Netzer.
