My great grandfather is Andrew Gantner, and my Grandfather is John L. who was Josephs brother.

John L. Gantner was a bricklayer (of course) in Boonville and had some where around 12 children, one of which was Charles who was my father.

I am originally from St. Louis, and have visited both Boonvile, and Pilot Grove many times.

I currently live in Fresno, CA.

I'm in yet another related branch of the Gantner's in the St. Louis Missouri area. Andrew was my great great grandfather. His son Louis J. was my great grandfather. Louis had eight children, including my Grandfather, George. My eldest son is George E. Gantner IV. I have seven children, ranging in age from 21 down to 5.

I'm just starting to get into the genealogy thing. I visited Boonville briefly last summer and saw my great grandparents' graves. Rest assured, there are many Gantner's carrying on the line in and around St. Louis.

My cousin Julie went to her local library and asked them to get the books for her through inter library loan- since they are no longer available to be purchased. She said they were hard to follow and that the names jumped around a lot- not all of the information was correct either. We were interested in the Diringer, Stretz, and Gantner names since they connect into our trees. Please drop me a line if you have any more questions about them- I can always email my cousin Julie who was able to view them a couple of months ago.

I have quite a bit of information on the Boonville Missouri Gantners, including some information on Diringer, Stretz, and Garthoffner. Andrew was my great-great-grandfather as well.

I would particularly be interested in any information on Margaret Gantner, Andrew's sister, who married George Stretz. Or on their father, supposedly named Ignaz Gantner, who I believe stayed in Baden.

I also recommend Jim Thoma's excellent website, with amazing numbers of Boonville residents:

Thank you so much for the link- I love finding new avenues to our families! My cousin Julie and I are planning a trip to Boonville in the spring and we are both so excited to get there and "relive" the Boonville experience our ancestors had. I have had contact with Jim Thoma last summer- he is in charge of the Cooper County, Missouri webpage through GenWeb and has a wonderful variety there of things to look through. I didn't know if you were aware of that already....Please keep in touch- Jodi

You will enjoy Boonville, it is a beautiful old Missouri river town (although admittedly, not a hot spot). And of course, it is where our ancestors came to from Germany / France.

Be sure to visit the Sts. Peter and Paul cemetery, it is where most of our ancestors are buried. Also the Andrew Gantner house, which is on the national register of historic places.

Jim Thoma is a valuable resource. I wouldn't have made nearly the progress I have made without his websites.

Hello! My husband, Eugene "Bud" is a relative of yours and we're just down the road in Merced. His father, Eugene Gantney was born in St. Louis. His father was Bernard N. Gantner(he changed it to Gantney). Bernard's father was Frank Gantner--who was one of the sons of Andrew Gantner of Boonville, Mo (originally of Baden, Germany. We still have Gantney's in Mo., but most of us live in California now. Would be glad to hear from you. Jennifer&Bud
