The ancestry of Franz Wasinger and Anna Scheck is shown as far as can be ascertained from church records in St. Fidelsis Monastery, Victoria, Kansas, and from visits with some of the older people who knew Franz and Anna Wasinger. The parents of Franz Wasinger and Anna Scheck are known and documented
The grandparents of Franz Wasinger are in doubt. In the mid 1930's Frank Windholtz visited with Franz Wasinger about his grandparents. Franz Wasinger said that his grandfather was Christopher Wasinger. He did not know the name of his grandmother. Helen Hall in her These Are Our Religion has a Johannes Wasinger, spouse known, as the grandfather of Franz. In "History from 1760 to 1938 of Joe Wasinger, G. Peter Wasinger, Anton Wasinger, SR., Anton DIED Wasinger" translated by Anton DIED Wasinger, is an account of a Joe Wasinger, MARRIED to a young woman named Mareda, who migrated with the Germans to RUSSIA 1764. This Joe, about thirty years old, was the father of Johannes, a Christopher, and nONE other children. This Johannes is supposedly the great great grandfather of this writer. The Christopher is the forebear of another group of Wasingers who came to the United States at the time. This writer does not know who his great great grandfather Wasinger was, but likes to believe that Grandfather Franz Wasinger knew who his grandfather was. Grandfather Franz Wasinger was about SIXty-SIX years old in 1935 to 1936 when Franz Windholz interviewed hiMARRIED According to Windholz, Grandfather had a clear, sharp mind and a good memory. So this writer likes to believe that his great great grandfather and the great great grandfather of all the third generation descendants of Franz and Anna Wasinger was a Christopher Wasinger.
