Greiner Family
Posted by: Cindy Curtright (ID *****4168) Date: June 21, 2011 at 10:07:05

I am looking for records on the following Greiner ancestor:

Josephus Greiner - born about 1755, place unknown, died Nov 20, 1797 in Holsthum. He was my 4th great grandfather. He married twice: Elisabetha Flesch born Feb 24, 1754 in Welzheim Baden-Wuerttemberg, died Apr 17, 1784 in Holstrum in childbirth of Josephus' second child (their first daughter died at age 1); Josephus later married Maria Pfeiffer. They had four children: Daniel 1786-1849; Petri 1789-1841; Maria Magdalena 1791 - ?; and Susana ? - 1858. Daniel and Susana died in Ferschweiler, all four were
born in Holstrum. Daniel's son Joannes was the first known Greiner from this family line to come to America. I found records for the four children's baptisms and marriages in the St. Lucia Catholic Church records from Ferschweiler but Josephus' baptism is not listed. He was a glassblower by trade and his sons were stonemasons. Any guidance would be MOST SINCERELY appreciated! Thanks! -Cindy
