They came to the US, but they were from Neuburg am Rhein.
Our earliest (known) ancestor is Georg Weisenburger, born 1693 in Neuburg, married to Margarethe Hall, born in 1687. They had several children, among whom was my ancestor, Jakob Johann, born 1/25/1716 in Neuburg, married to Catharina Schartz.
His children included Philipp Jakob, born 5/9/1748 in Neuburg, married to Anna Elisabetha Weisenburger, born 7/15/1749.
Next comes Philipp Weisenburger, born 11/08/1776, married to Maria Katharina Reise (Reisert or Reiser), born in 1782. She was from Neuburg or possibly Dusseldorf.
Franz Xaver comes next, born 12/25/1809 in Passau, married to Katharina Pfirman, born 3/20/1814 in Neuburg.
Finally, the last generation before my great-grandfather emigrated with his family, Georg Franz, born 4/13/1837 in Neuburg am Rhine, married to Theresia Gabriel, born 5/14/1836, in Berg.
Their son Franz, (Later Frank) born 4/8/1864 in Neuburg, was my great-grandfather. He emigrated to Williamsport PA at 19, in September, 1883. We're told that almost 400 Neuburg residents left, and came to Williamsport after massive flooding at that time.
Hope that helps someone!
