Amiel WISER - Saxony > Liberty & Chambers Co.,Texas
Posted by: Wiser (ID *****9279) Date: August 13, 2004 at 19:51:00
  of 86

Would like to exchange information with another descendant of this Wiser who immigrated from Hannover, Germany between 1849-1854 to Galveston, Texas with his mother, Hannah, and three young brothers: Louis, Barnhart (a/k/a Barney--his twin) and Edward. Earlier censuses indicate he may have been born in "Sachsen" or Saxony. I do not know his father's given name, his mother's maiden name nor from which town they last lived before leaving Saxony.

Sometime after arriving in America, Hannah married Samuel LEEPER. They lived in both Chambers County and Liberty County.
