I am searching for information about the Wenner's from Alsace. The ALSACE EMIGRATION BOOK Vol II lists an Elisabeth, Jacques (Jacob), & Philippe Wenner as emigrating to this country together in 1865. I believe that this Elisabeth is my gggrandmother, but I know nothing of Elisabeth's parents. Were these her two brothers?She married a John Frank Firley and lived in Madison County, IL. I would verymuch like to know more about her .
There is a story handed down through the generations to me about the Wenner family, that they left Alsace after their house caught fire and burned.They had been drying flax in the house.Has any other Wenner descendant heard this same story?Many thanks for any help you can provide.Myra
