Ikenberry Family Tree Info.

Ikenberry Family Tree Info.

Hello! I work for Bridgewater College and our library has a book you will want to use for your research: "A History and Genealogy of Peter Eichenberg in the U.S.A.", published and copywrighted in 1955. There were many spellings of Ikenberry that orginated from Peter Eichenberg.

Bridgewater has a tradition of educating Ikenberrys -- we aren't sure, but we think that might be our largest family connection in our history. I haven't worked on the BC Ikenberry family tree in a while, but when I last put it aside, I had found around 100 alumni Ikenberrys, originating from only 3 brothers in the 4th generation from Peter.

If I can help anyone, let me know. I've been working on my own "Brown" genealogy -- ugh -- and I know how difficult it can be.

Sorry, but I don't think you can. It was privately printed by the family members that compiled it in the late 50's. If you give me a name to begin with (it is indexed very well), I could copy some pages for you. I need to finish tracing our Ikenberrys who attended Bridgewater College family tree anyway. It appears that the Ikenberrys are our largest single alumni family.

I'm looking for info on my great-grandparents, George and Blossom Eikenberry. They lived in Sterling/Rock Falls, Il, which is near the Iowa border. My grandfather is Marvin Eikenberry, and I think he had at least one other brother, Leon. If you can help, I would appreciate it!

I have ordered this book from the higgins publishing co... it is available... but also out of print therefore to order the book be prepared to spend nearly 100.00 also... there was a previous post to a website that has up to 10 generations of ikenberry's (spelled numerous ways) i have to say there is a ton of inbreeding between floras, ikenberrys, bowmans, and barnharts. hahah but i guess in that day they didnt have much choice... this website stops with my great great grandmother catherine hirt/henry ikenberry... but its a great help if u can understand the numbering system... took me a few mins to get it down... but the website it... www.geocities.com/heartland/plains/5971/iken.html?200511 good luck...
