My great grandfather Jakob Cyriac Geenen was born in Gossersweiler in 1851. He came to Brooklyn, NY, and married Barbara (Roslein) Stegmann about 1877. His parents were Johann Philip and Margaretha (Haberlach) Geenen. His siblings were Melchior, who died in Gossersweiler 1884; Magdalena, who married Jakob Volker; Catherina, who married George Schumacher; Anna Maria, who married a Hoffman; Simon; Andreas: and Peter. Johann, the father was born in Gossersweiler in 1820 and died there in 1865. All of the other children and the mother (Margaretha) came to America and lived in Brooklyn. Johann Philip's parents were Joseph and Franziska (Cunz) Geenen. They lived in Gossersweiler, but were not born or married there. I am interested in where Joseph and Franziska came from. I am also interested in any information on the families of the above children. I would be happy to share any information that I have.
