I thought I would throw what I currently have on Johannes and children out here since no one seems to be addressing your question directly. I know some of this is wrong as it comes mostly from "Wisners in America" which while it is the Wisner last word, is not always right and some of this is from even less reliable sources or my own mistaken conclusions. I spent several hours yesterday entering the Samuel and Julianer (Tedd) Wisner revolutionary war info in for Thomas' (see below) son only to conclude it was probably the wrong place for that data.

Descendants of Johannes Wisner

Generation No. 1

1. JOHANNES1 WISNER1,2 was born 1676 in Switzerland3, and died Bef. 19 May 1744 in RI3,4,5. He married ELIZABETH DUMBOUGH6 16977. She was born in Switzerland8.

From Hunter Lists #817;
A matching family was found at 6305 Beurn (11 km. n.e. of Giessen; Chbks. begin 1671) An Elisabetha, w/o Johannes Wiesner, sp. there in 1688. Johann Jeremias, s/o Johannes Wisner, was bpt. 17 Feb 1692 there; Johann Henrich, s/o Johannes Wisner from Rohnhausen (?), was bpt. Dom. Invocavit: 1703 and d. in 1704 according to the Beurn records.
The chbk. at Beurn is almost destroyed, so an exact match with the N.Y. group is almost impossible (HJ).
Johan Wiesener, his wife, and 6 ch., were on Capt. Johan Enrit's ship in Holland in the 5th party of Palatines in 1709 (Rotterdam Lists).
Note that all of the variations of spelling listed here as of Feb 2003 appear in this document, Les C.
