I am looking for additional information for a branch on my family. The following is the information that I know, and further information would be appreciated.
John Adam Puerner (baptized Johann Adam Purner -with an umlat over the u): b-4/14/1824 in Grafenreuth, District of Wunsiedel, Bavaria: Parents: Martin Purner and Maria(nne) Susana nee Glas.
He married Katharina Ursula Thoma (b-7/2/1825 in Gopfersgrum, Bavaria - daughter of unmarried Dorothea Thoma) on 1/1/1848 in Artberg.
They immigrated to America in 1853, to Jefferson, WI with three of their children already being born.
Catherine: b-unknown, in Bavaria
Elizabeth: b-1850, in Bavaria
George: b-1850 in Bavaria
Barbara: b-1854 in Wisconsin
Henry: b-1856 in Wisconsin
Margaret: b-1858 in Wisconsin
John: b-1861 in Wisconsin
Martin: b-1863 in Wisconsin
Martha: b-1863 in Wisconsin
Agathe/Hattie: b-1868 in Wisconsin
also I have found that there may have been a baby girl that died in infancy.
Catherine married: Lorenz Meyer, date unknown
Elizabeth married: G. Jospeh Loetz, date unknown
George: do not know if married
Barbara: married Burton Howard Straw 11/13/1879
Henry: married Adelia Kieson 5/13/1879
Margaret: married Henry Bellman, date unknown
John: do not know if married
Martin: do not know if married
Martha: married Hubert Heinz, date unknown
Agatha/Hattie: married William T. Thiele
All of this information was from family records, and my own personal research.
I know that John Adam Puerner was baptized as Johann Adam, not to be confused with Johann Andreas Puerner, who was also in Jefferson, WI. I know there to be quite a bit of Puerner's in Jefferson, as there were buildings and streets with their name on them. I do not know if there is realtion between all of the Puerner's I have found. I only know my own branch.
I am a decendent of Barbara Puerner and Burton Howard Straw, they are my great-great grandparents.
I have more detailed information, but I wanted to put this out there first. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
