 member for 7 years, 11 months, 13 days
Hello RoseAnne!

I too am some kind of descendant of Casper Gelnett - 4th great-grandfather.

I have a photo posted of his great-grandson John Edwin Sones, son of Lydia Ann Gelnett. His memorial # is 69497864 if you would like to see what he looks like.

Nice to meet you,

Theresa Sones

I saw that you had posted information about the Gelnett family, specifically Casper. I was wondering if you had done any research on him or his family and had any other information or pictures. Thanks!

Jonathan Gelnett, b. 1810
Hi Cousin,

My name is Jane Gelnett and I descend from Jonathan;s child John Brugger who married Fianna Long.

Do you have any documentation of Jonathan Gelnett such as a birth certificate, death certificate, marrige license or will?

I have only the U.S. Federal Census of 1840.

I would gladly share with you if you need the document.

Error in Birthdate
Hi Cousin,

According to my records and the inscription on the tombstone, Catharina Grumbach Gelnett was born on 10 December 1774. Hopefully the correction won't be too troublesome.

Thanks for your time and efforts.

Gelnett Cousin
Hi Cousin,

I'm related to you through Casper's grandson John Brugger Gelnett and his wife Fianna (Long) Gelnett.

Any idea where Johann Christian Gollnitz (Geolnitz) and his wife Maria Stegg are buried?

RE: hey
I can not transfer any of the Miles or Gelnett names to you, because I did not enter any of them as the contributor nor do I maintain any of them.
And the few Dresslers that I have I still have not yet finished adding the pictures, linking family and bio information that I would like to get entered. Sorry!

I keep losing the messages to you. Not used to doing this kind of thing.

I am not sure how I can help you. I have only one Gelnett in my data and that is because of marriage. Esther Gelnett married Jacob Dressler and their daughter, Leah married John Henry Kerstetter. This makes Leah and John Henry my Half 3rd cousins 3 times removed.

Please let me know what info you wish. I am not well versed in transferring data. You asked me to transfer all Kerstetter to you. Kerstetter what??

I like to share anything I have so let me know what you want and even how I can get the info to you. It would be nice to exchange info with email address's if you wish mostly because I rarely look at FindaGrave. Mine is Evan

I transfered Casper and Eva into your name, so you can add to it, etc.

If you want any more transferred into your name, let me know. :)
