Searching for information on John KANNEGIESSER and wife Rahel (Rachel). Their daughter, Mary Ann was born 05 Nov 1841 in Prussia and married Peter Booth ca. 1858. Mary Ann died in Luzerne County, 24 May 1897. I am willing to exchange information.
I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS FOR THE NAME OF MY GREAT-GREAT GRANDMOTHER FROM LUZERNE COUNTY, AND I FINALLY FOUND HER
SOPHIA ELIZABETH KANNEGIESSER
MY GRANDMOTHER KEPT TELLING MY AUNT THAT HER LAST NAME WAS SPELLED "CONEGEASSAR" BUT I FOUND OUT THROUGH THE USGENWEB SITE THAT IT IS "KANNEGIESSER" AND SHE WAS MARRIED TO MY GREAT-GREAT GRAND FATHER JOHN WILLIAM BAHRT IN HAZELTON (LUZERNE COUNTY) PENNYSLVANNIA ON JUNE 15TH, 1879.
I JUST FOUND ALL THIS INFORMATION TODAY, AND NOW I FOUND YOUR AD WITH A RELATIVE WITH THE SAME LAST NAME WHO LIVED IN LUZERNE COUNTY. I WAS WONDERING IF YOU WERE RELATED, AND WHO YOUR RELATIVE WAS. I WISH I COULD NOW FIND OUT WHO HER PARENTS WERE (THEY MUST HAVE BEEN FROM GERMANY)AND HER SIBLINGS. LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY INFO.
I believe Sophia and my Mary Ann were sisters. I have Sophia in the records of Christ Lutheran Church, Hazleton, PA.
Kangieser, Sophia Elizabeth, d. of John Christ. Kangieser and wife Elizabeth, bor. April 11, 1860, bap. May 27, 1860. Sp. Sophia Endes, Peter Endes, Maria Elizabeth Ringleben.

THANK YOU FOR RESPONDING. IT'S POSSIBLE THAT SOPHIA WAS YOUR MARY'S SISTER (THAT WOULD MAKE US DISTANT RELATIVES, I GUESS COUSINS.
THE SPELLING I GOT FROM THE INTERNET WAS "KANNEGIESSER" AND IT WAS FROM AN ISSUE OF A LOCAL NEWSPAPER ON WEDDINGS. IT WAS PUT ONTO THE USGEN WEBSITE FOR LUZERNE COUNTY. YOU HAVE THEIR LAST NAME AS "KANGIESER", WHICH IS VERY CLOSE. WERE THE PARENTS FROM GERMANY OR FROM PENNSYLVANNIA. ONE DAY IM GOING TO THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES IN NEW YORK CITY (WHERE I LIVE) AND LOOK UP CENSUS RECORDS AND IMMIGRATION MANIFESTS. I THINK, HOWEVER, THEY PROBABLY CAME THROUGH PHILADELPHIA.. THEY HAVE AN ARCHIVES THERE BUT FOR ME MORE DIFFICULT TO GET TO.
IM GOING TO LET ME AUNT KNOW ABOUT SOPHIA'S SISTER MARY ANN. IF HER BIRTHDATE WAS APRIL 11, 1860, MAYBE I CAN SEND AWAY FOR HER BIRTH CERTIFICATE AT THE COURT HOUSE IN WILKES BARRE. IM THINKING MAYBER THEIR GRAVESTONES ARE AT THAT LUTHERN CHURCH, MOST OF MY DECENDENTS ARE AT CALVARY OR ST ANNS, BUT WE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE THEIR'S WERE. THANK YOU FOR THE INFORMATION, AND IF YOU FIND ANYTHING ELSE (LIKE WHERE THEY WERE FROM IN GERMANY, OR OTHER SISTERS/BROTHERS, THAT WOULD BE FANTASTIC.
PS, ILL KEEP YOUR EMAIL ADDRES SO THAT I CAN WRITE YOU DIRECTLY NEXT TIME
Kanneigesser is the correct spelling for my family. I only listed it as the spelling was in that church record. I've found at least 5 different spellings.
I am looking for Peter Booth.Do you have any more info on him? I just found one in the 1870 census in Luzerne Co. Hazleton. I wonder if this could be my great grandfather or his father.I did find my g-grandfather in the 1910 census for Luzerne co. First piece of luck I've had.He was born abt 1864.So if Mary Ann married Peter in 1858 she could be my gg-grandmother. Appreciate any help you can give me. thank you
Peter Booth was born September 1835 in PA. He married Mary Ann Kannegiesser. Their children were: George Samuel, Ruebin Peter, Mary Louise, Minnie Jane, Charles, James Divine, Elias Thomas, Stella May. George Samuel had a son-in-law (Cleveland Schlauch), my great uncle.

I am a Kannegiesser.....and looking for info
I don't have any info about your original post.
I am looking for info on my family.
My grandfather is Richard Kannegiesser aka Dick.
My father is Robert Berenerd Kannegiesser.
I am looking to trace this family back.
Any information would be great!
John and Rahel Kanneigesser
I have a little information on John and Rahel (Rachel) Kanneigesser from Luzerne County, PA. I am not familiar with a Richard though.
I offer the following information which people investigating the Kannengiesser surname might find useful.
My name is Michael Henry Fletcher, and I have been carrying out some genealogical research into my family, concentrating on my great grandmother on my father's side of the family.
Her name was Elizabeth Jane Kangiesser who married my great grandfather Henry William Fletcher, a paper hanger, on 3 August 1878 at Islington Parish Church, London.
Elizabeth Jane was the daughter of James Edward Kangiesser whose occupation was house painter. It is a reasonable guess that Elizabeth and Henry met one another because of the association of paper hanging and house painting.
There is an entry in the 1881 census showing James E Kangiesser aged 52 living at 48, Albert Street, Barnsbury, Islington.
The genealogical researchers who took up the trail tried to discover if there was an entry in the 1851 census with an entry for James aged 22 with a daughter (Elizabeth Jane). They focused on Islington and the name Kangiesser and found details of an Elizabeth Kangiesser aged 67 and her unmarried daughter aged 39. The researchers wondered if this Elizabeth were in fact the mother of James Edward and the grandmother of Elizabeth Jane.
Examination of the IGI baptismal records failed to find an entry for 1829, which should have been when James Edward was born. They did turn up an entry for an Edward James for the 10 July 1836 baptised son of Charles Henry William Kannegiesser and Mary Elizabeth; and there the trail goes cold.
Further research showed that a Henry Kanngiessor married a Mary Mycroft as early as 1758 at St. Martin in the Fields, Westminster, London. The researchers originally thought that the family might be sugar bakers and have come from Germany in the 1820s or 1830s. However, the IGI suggested that the Kannegiessers were a German merchant family who had left Germany in the eighteenth century because England offered much easier trading facilties, without the heavy burden of trade restrictions and taxation prevailing in most Germanic countries at that time.
I hope this is useful information for you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I hope this information is of interest to you
