Wannamacher's in Darmstadt
Posted by: Craig Date: December 16, 2001 at 19:22:30
In Reply to: Re: "WANNAMAKER & ALLIED FAMILIES" BOOK by Sherry Koshney Downard U.E. of 47

Hi,
I live in Buffalo, an odd coincidence since there is a man in Buffalo researching Wannemacher's, but I am not related to Wannemacher's until I go back to the 1700's (and my German ancestors all immigrated from the 1820's on). I am a descendant of a large family, who came to Buffalo from Bierbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. One line of this family can be traced back to a Peter Moser and Anna Eva Weber. Anna Eva Weber's mother was Anna Margaretha Wannemacher and her father, Johann Conrad Wannemacher, went to Zweibruecken, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany, but he was born in Darmstadt, Hessen, Germany. Here is part of my tree - it goes back to my ancestor, Martin Wannemacher.

I saw your website and thought it was great. I was wondering a few things.
First of all, you note things like "much to translate". Translate from what? Do you mean church records written in German or something similar to that? On this note, I was wondering if you had 'translated anything' about Martin, his son Wilhelm, daughter-in-law Elisabeth Alt (and her father Conrad Alt), grandson Hans Jacob Wannemacher who is not on your site (his wife Anna Hilbert of Arheiligen, daughter of Michael Hilbert), and great-grandson Johann Conrad Wannemacher. I loved reading about my ancestors, Hans the Younger, Hans the Elder, and Hengin Wannemacher. It appears they were wealthy, a well respected family of Darmstadt, such a great city. Reading about Palaces, Emperors, and the such, and Wannemacher involvement in all of it, I was wondering about the possibility of royalty or nobility connected to our Wannemacher ancestors? Could, say, Hengin go back to Charlemagne or someone like that or am I pretty far off? I was wondering about the possibility of Hengin adopting the surname Wannemacher - if he was born in 1450 he very well could have been the first to use the surname since many European families didn't start developing surnames until 1500's (*Unless they were connected to royalty). Why is Hengin so wealthy? Can we ever trace back further than him?
I am curious to your responses to the questions I've posed. I think being in contact could be a lot of fun. I can't wait to learn more about my Wannemacher ancestors and their involvement in Darmstadt. See, most of my German ancestors are poor and that's why this Wannemacher family really interests me. I can't wait to hear from you.

And without anything further, here is what I have so far.
