When my ancestor Elias Lenggenhager came to America in the late 1700s, he was aboard a ship that sailed out of England. he may be of the border area of now germany and switzerland, i'm not sure.
his mother Rosina Baumann Birth 31 Aug 1704 in Appenzell, Appenzell-Inner Rhoden, Switzerland
Death Death 3 Mar 1756 in Pennsylvania, United States
father is joseph lenggenhar/linkenhoker born around the area but they're considered german so i'm guessing the swiss were part of the germanic empire as well is why most put him in switzerland and others germany.

can someone clarify where the linkenaugers are from as close as possible.
