Christian Schweissberger aka Sweisberger, born abt 1860, arrived US ca 1879, home country, Lorraine, (we think),when it was in the hands of the Germans. He lived entire US life in Bergen county, married "Carrie" Catherine Bergtole/ Bogtole. Carrie born 1864 NJ, died 1926, Bergen co., NJ. Christian died 1917, Bergen co. Christian and Carrie had 11 children, Edward, Carrie, Adeline, Kate, Sophie, WIlliam, Christian, Jacob, Gertrude, Charles and George. One son, Charles, moved to TN, SD, NE, and finally to IA. We descend from that branch. Carrie had a brother, Henry, living with them in 1900. For more information, please contact: Peggy and Dave Powell, Hornick IA 51026-8132 or email. Thank you.
