Re: GEYER Alsace(France) to USA
Thank you very kindly for the information on the ancestry of Adam Geyer. I had exhausted all of the available sources in US records (immigration, naturalization, birth, death, census, marriage) for Adam Geyer and his children and I had found nothing more specific about his origin than GERMANY or FRANCE, depending on what year the information was provided and where the border between Germany and France was at that time.
For your information, Adam Geyer was born 23 March 1842 and died 7 August 1913 in Allegheny Co., PA. His wife, Margaret/Margaretha Engel was born 9 October 1839 and died 9 April 1922. They only had one child born after they arrived in Pennsylvania, my g-grandfather.
