Anthony Emmendorfer was married 1880 in New York, to Matilda Freton. Their child Phillip Emmendorfer came to Michigan and raised several children, including my father in law, Cleo Emmendorfer. They could be related to your Emmendorfers, as New York was the starting point for may immigrents.

I'm very interested in further information on the Emmendorfer line posted by Neal and anyone working on related lines. Anton (aka Dennis and Dyonisius) Emmendorfer listed by Neal is my gggrandfather, but his parents were not Michael Emmendorfer and Eva Magin, but rather Dennis Emmendorfer and Crescentine Kassner. I know that Franz and John were brothers of Dennis and likely Michael as well, since Anton, Franz, and Michael are listed together on the ship log for the Minna. I don't know about George, but that is a fairly common name among Missouri Emmendorfers.

I'm very interested to know what records were used to make these family connections.

The date of entry to the U.S. I got from a cousin. George Emmendorfer b. 1823 was my great-grandfather. George remanined in NY although several of his children later located in MI. Michael b. 1824 also stayed in NY. Anthony b. 1829, Franz b. 1830, and Augusta moved from NY to MI. Anthony with a couple of partners started a business they called "Pontiac Buggy Company" in Pontiac, MI

The children from the above and there were many, did settle in NY,MI,MO. KS

Thanks for the reply, Neal. Based on what you've said about the Emmendorfers in Michigan, I wonder if your Emmendorfers were cousins of my Emmendorfers (Dennis, {aka Anton}, Franz, and John, whose parents were Dennis Emmendorfer and Crescentine Kassner.) One of our family stories is similar to yours, i.e., the family once being called von Emmendorfer and being from a town called Emmendorf. It would be nice to make a connection between the two families.

Neal and Eileen,
My name is Jim Birchmeier and live in Michigan. It sounds like Neal and I have connection. My gg Grandmother was Lucinda Emmendorfer (married Phillip Wendling). She moved from western NY state to Michigan at the same time three of here nephews (and families) moved.
I made contact with a (first name - can't remember right now?)Long who still lives near Buffalo, NY who is a descendant of some of the original Lockport, NY. Emmendorfers. I he had told me that one of his cousins, (one of Neal's and my distant cousins) moved to St. Louis, MO?
I can be reached at

It was actually Francis A. Emmendorfer who helped to start the Pontiac Buggy Company. There is a house in Oakland County with a historical marker, called The Emmendorfer House. You can visit for more information.
