Places to find information


Jonathan Wisser

(Johnathan Wieser)

about 1799 -


Jonathan Wisser is listed in the 1860 Census as being 62 years old. This would put his birth date about 1798. Thomas L. Wisser, age 12, is also listed. So far Jonathan Wisser has not been connected with my family tree although he lives in the same small township as my family.

Jonathan had the following children:

Abby - Female born about 1833
Maryan - Female born about 1839
Henry - Male born about 1843
Gideon - Male born about 1846
Thomas - Male born about 1848

*** Research Notes: ****

- His parents may have been Johannes Wisser and his wife Elisabeth. I am still seeking solid information that might confirm the true identity if his parents.

- A possible brother may be Jacob Wisser who is a direct line ancestor of mine.

- May be the brother of Daniel Wisser (abt. 1803 - 1895)
