The oldest Meisner in our family I know of was PETER VINCENT MEISNER-born Bernau Germany 1863 died Westmoreland Co. Pa, 1947 in Mt. Pleasant. Believe they lived in Pittsburgh when arrived to USA. According to 1930 census he came over abt 1890.Had 17 children, daughter SADIE born 1887 in Poland married my husband's grandfather LOUIS SZYMBORSKI. Believe Peter had brothers who arrived with him, who may have stayed in Pittsburgh area. Can you tell me any more about JULIUS MEISNER?
