Wise family connection to Alsace?

Remember I don't know the Wise family. I did check Chalkley's Chronicles and found many citations for various Wise families but these two I could place:

Notice Abraham Wise in the first and John Wiss in the second. You might also make a note that John Wiss/Wise was listed on the sale bill of Michael MALLOW (b 1720 in Griesbach, Alsace and baptized in nearby Gundershoffen - that's important a little later in my notes).

Page 307.--3d December, 1757. Vendue held at Michael Stump's, on South Fork in Hampshire County, by Anthonv Reager, Peter Thorn, administrators of Christian Dousher--To Peter Heath, Thos. Crawford, Tobias Thorn, Michael Oxer, Lazarus Thorn, Philip Moore, Jr., Jno. Welton, Henry Couchman, Simon Hornback, Philpole Yeokham, Abraham Wise, Jno. Cock, Adam Rutherback, Harmus Hook, Conrad Moore, Thomas Singleton, Martin Job, James Hornback, Adam Harpole, Jonathan Coburn, Leonard Knave, Thos. Parsons, Sr., Nicholas Smith, Gaisper Reed, Michael Earsest, Sr., James Taff, Henry Miars, Ruda Bozard, Wm. Jennings, Jno. Varrill, James Parsons. Solom Hedges, Windle Miller, Peter Hive, Henry Shipler, Peter Andrew, Stophel Hoofman, Thos. Crawford, Benj. Scott, Andrew Byarly, Mary Smith, Henry Mook, Philip Hupp, John Mason.

Higgins, Jacob Goodman, Jacob Heffenor, Christopher Hoofner, Gasper Bogart, Henry Rule, Abel Griffith, Peter Hald, Peter Segerfoot, widow Moser, Aaron Vanscoy, Thos.

I did a little more research on Abraham Wise who was an adult in 1757 therefore born bef 1731. This could be his immigration record. The age 26 would have given him an approximate birth year of 1711.

Adam Weiss, 60 Ingelshoff, Alsace-Lorraine Bur1992 Wize Abraham Wize, 26

The Adam Weiss aka Wise who travelled with Abraham was probably the father-in-law of Jacob Springer who was also on the same ship in 1737, Virtuous Grace. Jacob Springer was born in or near Gundershoffen in 1704 (same place Michael Mallow was baptized.) Jacob Springer md Anna, daughter of Adam Weiss of Ingelshoff (not far from Gundershoffen) on 5 Feb 1733 in Gundershoffen. [I happen to have a copy of the original record from other research I was doing on the Mallows]

A connection of the Wise families on the Pendleton-Hardy line to Abraham who immigrated in 1737 (b 1711) might be worth following up on. It might not pan out but, if it does, you'd have the immigrant ancestor and additional data about his place of origin.
