I am a descendant of Johanes Weesner. Much of the information I have about my Wisner lineage has come from the G. Franklin Wisner "Wisners in America" book, a xeroxed copy of which I have in my possession.
I am descended from the Adam Wisner line. Specifically, my line (as far as it goes in the book) is: Johannes (chart 1), Adam (chart 28), John, Jacob (both chart 58), Jacob, Jacob, Cecelia (all chart 59). Cecelia (known as "Sissy" in the family) was my grandmother's grandmother. My grandmother, who is 93, remembers her grandmother well, and I have an old photograph of them together. Sissy Wisner lived all of her life, to the best of my knowledge, in Marietta, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
I am particularly interested in communicating with anyone descended from the Johanes-Adam line. I know nothing, for instance, of the various Jacobs and would be very interested in learning more. I am not currently an Ancestry subscriber, and would prefer to be contacted directly at either firstname.lastname@example.org
(work) or email@example.com
I see a number of names on this message board that I recognize, and many that are new to me. Some of the names are familiar from the RootsWeb Wisner mailing list, a mailing list for the discussion and sharing of information regarding the Wisner surname and variations.
