Just started researching my ancestry...I believe Jacob Donnenwirth's father was Andre Donnenwerth, born in Uhrwiller, Bas-Rhin, France and married to Maria Magdalena Urban.
Jacob (Andre) Donnenwerth was born in Mulhausen, Alsace, France 1798 or 99, married Margaretha (Maria) Merklin and emigrated to America in 1827.I believe he may have been a widower with 6 children before marrying Margaretha, and had a son Henry with Margaretha.
I believe Jacob Donnenwirth is my great-great-great grandfather, my mother's mother's great-great-grandfather.
If you have more info, please post.I'm trying to go further back.
