Johann William Gehringer (born September 5, 1863 in Oberfranken, Bavaria Germany and died September 19, 1926 in Manhattan, NY) and Dora Berges (born March 3, 1869 in Konigshagen, Duchy of Waldeck, Eder District, Germany and died at 37 years old on August 11, 1906 of Endocarditis in Queens, NY) and were married in April 26, 1891 in Manhattan, NY. Johann (John) William Gehringer is buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Maspeth, Queens County, New York and Dora Berges Gehringer is buried in Saint Michaels Cemetery, East Elmhurst, Queens County, New York. Johann immigrated to US in 1880 and changed his name to John. Dora immigrated to the US in 1887. Unfortunately Dora died in 1906 and as a result Johann was unable to keep the children. Johann tried to keep them all together but after many years he just was not able to. All 3 boys ended up in an orphanage and would remain there until they were of legal age. All three boys ended up in different states. Their father ended up becoming a lodger until his death. They had at least 4 children and all are known. Their names are: Carrie Gehringer, William Henry Gehringer, John Karl Gehringer, and George Henry Gehringer. Carrie Gehringer died when she was only two and Dora died when George was only 6. George Henry Gehringer was married to Ruth Isabelle Kirkham.
