|Preserving the Past||RE: Family|
Thanks for the "hello". Yes, we are distant cousins. I am related to the Kissingers on my father's side of the family. My 8th great grandfather was Johann Baltshar Kissinger, who's son Andreas Kissinger Sr. came to America around 1737 with his wife Susanna (nee Fisherin) and their children; Mathias, George, Andreas Jr., and Catherine. All their other children were born after arriving in America. Their son Mathias is my 7th great grandfather and my family line continues through him. Your relative; William M. Sr. (married to Sarah Fugate), was the brother of my 3rd great grandmother, Emeline Kissinger who married James Henry Carden. Which makes William my 3rd great grand uncle. Your great grandfather, Melville, would have been my 2nd cousin 3X removed. I never understand all those "removed's"...LOL
It is always a pleasure to meet other family members researching our respective ancestors. I hope you and yours have a blessed Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
Have a GREAT weekend!
