Not many Wissing's around. I'm am interested in the possible (and most likely) connection between the WISSING and WISSINGER surnames (and many others (WISINGER, WESSINGER, WIESINGER, WEISINGER, WYSINGER, etc.). My line immigrated from Germany in the 1750's and settled in Maryland, then the Pennsylvania area with branches in Ohio and Indiana.
I did find the following WISSING immigrants:
