Surnames: Dornberger/Doanabaragar
My G grandfather Frank (Franz or Francis) Dormberger 1826-1904(french spelling Doanabarajar) came to West Point, NY abt 1846. His sister Theresa came to the states about 1842 married a Bittman West Point, NY. Frank's brother Lambert left Alsace in 1850 settled in Callfornia. Andrew left Alsace abt 1850 and went to Illinois and Lawrence (Lorenz) left Alsace abt 1851 and settled in Ohio. Sisters Rose, Kathern and Mary stayed in Alsace two sisters married brothers. The mother's name was Catherine (maybe Wanzel)died 18 June 1869. Father was George died abt 1833. Any information would be wonderful.

Hello
My name is Pierre Kayser from France.
I also have far ancestors with the name of "DORNBERGER".
Since I have studied the genealogie of my ancestors in Alsace, I have dicovered the great amout of peoples having emigrated in US during the 19th century.
It is always something fantastic to get in contact with far cousins.
Because yes, I think we are far cousins if your G grandfather was Florentz and had brothers with the names Lambert and Andre ( Andrew)
if their parents were George Dornberger and Catherine WENTZEL ....
they were fron Reinhardsmunster Bas-Rhin Alsace .
You can contact me here : pierrekayser@wanadoo.fr
