My paternal grandmother was Johanna Gertrude Jänig from Mittweida, Saxony, Germany. Her father was Adolph Jänig and mother was Pauline Wuester. There were 8 children (four boys and four girls) altogether of which three were in the U.S. (Puyallup Valley, Washington State). I know that the others were in Germany. One of the females was in the U.S. and returned prior to WWI to claim an inheritance. I don't know what happened to the rest. I'm interested if anyone has information of this surname from the Saxony region.

Hi Wendy,

I know of Oscar Jaehnig, born ca. 1852. He was originally from Saxony. I believe he came to the United States in 1861, then I found a record of him in Indiana in 1873 and he later died in San Diego in 1936. Would you have any information on him?

The Jaehnig's (Jähnig's or Jänig's) must have come over in shifts.

I'm currently traced my branch of the Jaehnig Family to Moritz and Christine who came over in 1850 from leipzig.

Moritz was born in 1815. I am at all stop trying to find out if Moritz had siblings or what his parents names were.

I found your post today, but I was wondering if you have the names of the 8 children? Was there a Moritz or Ferdinand in your bunch? Any help would be much appreciated,

The four children were: Lena, Agnes, Paul, Karl, Richard, Oswalt, Gertrude and Martha (Else). Their parents were Adolf and Pauline. I know the children were born in Mittweida but I don't know about the parents.
