Surnames: Essig
I am related to the Essig side from Germany, I believe from manheim Germany. George Sturges Essig was a great Uncle who became well known in the art field, especially water color seascapes of the eastern shore of Maryland and the Jersey shore as well. Middle 1800s. And also Dr. Norman S. Essig co-founder of the Temple School of Dentistry? Would always enjoy chatting with another Essig:) Thanks, Jim Essig

James-

My great grandmother was Jane (or Jennie) Elizabeth Essig. She was born August 2, 1841 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Her parents were, according to my grandmother, from Germany. She had a sister, Anna C, born August 16, 1824 and a brother John, birthdate unknown. She was married twice, first to Edwin Manfull and second to Henry Crouse Criley. She is buried in Prairie City, Iowa. I would like to find out more about her parents.

Surnames: Essig essick
Hello. I am a descendant of John Lockhart essick...my 4th great grandfather....and I believe he was a grandson of Rudolph essick that your post refers to. I would love to know more about Rudolph, and other relatives. Do you have a tree on ancestry and what sources do you have that refer to the immigration of Rudolph? Has anyone traced the family back into Europe and where does the reference to Switzerland come from? Thanx so much for any info you have to offer. I am lucky enough to have received a bundle of papers detailing the research of James Irwin essick...my mothers great great grandfather.....who did genealogy on the essicks in about 1915 or so. Have been able to track down the graves of Rudolph and his wife with that info...thanx Cheryl

All Saints Parish, Calvert Co. Maryland 1800 U S Census lists Isaac, John, Joseph, Elizabeth, Samuel, and William Essig.

Being German, German naming convention might be involved. If so. James Esseck (Essig) would likely have named the first son Isaac. James’ oldest son is Isaac. Further, James declared he was born 1770 in Maryland and that would make him 30 In the 1800 Census. Isaac would have been at least 45 or older as listed on that census, so his father in 1800 could have been at least 20-25.

Could Joseph Essig, (see below) - be the Father of James? Or another Essig, as Father?

I am from Isaac, whose Father was James. James married Elizabeth Charles in Guilford County, North Carolina in 1802. But I've yet to find, if those above in Parish records are possibly grandchildren of Joseph Essig, who came from Germany in about 1752, (at the approximate age of 10 years) resided in Maryland, perhaps only a short time, then to North Carolina, then to Kentucky for a short time, then back to North Carolina, permanently. Joseph is currently buried in Pilgrim Reformed Church Cemetery, Lexington, Davidson County, North Carolina, USA

FamilyTreeDNA has a Y Chromosome (Male) DNA database for Essex, which also includes Joseph Essig. Are there any known male decedents of Joseph Essig, who correspond on rootsweb.com message boards, or would like to reciprocate? Have any done a Y Chromosome (male) DNA test? I have yet to test.

Also, does anyone have a ship's registry with Joseph named above and undoubtedly any relatives, who crossed the Atlantic Ocean at the same time? Anyone have Essig connections to Western Europe - documented with genealogies?
