I am a West Bend, WI Regner. Our ancestors came from Speisheim, Hessen-Dharmsted, Germany. Jacob Regner was born in that area in 1798 and his father was said to be George Regner. Mathias was his only son to have children. There is at least one other group of Regners from the Germantown, WI area but I have been unable to find a link at this time.
