Re: STEGER FAMILY FROM KEMBACH, BADEN, GERMANY
I cannot find a link with your Steger family although I feel that there is every possibility that there is a link between our families.
Do you know the names of the parents of your Johannes Steger?
My Stegers were originally from Wenkeim.
My direct line is as follows;
Kilian Steeger m. Catharina ? - Baden, Germany.
Their son, Kiliani married Barbara Schmitt on 20 Feb 1730 in Wenkheim.
Kiliani and Barbara had seven children;
1. Johannes Georg - b. 12 Dec 1730
2. Anna Maria - b. 25 Jul 1734
3. Johannes - b. 30 Apr 1737
4. Barbara - b. 15 Jul 1740 - d. infant
5. Barbara - b. 17 Sep 1743
6. Catharina - b. 22 Jul 1747 and died same day
7. Catharina - b. 22 Dec 1748
My line is through their third child, Johannes who married Elisabeth Knörr(en) on 15 Jun 1772 in Kembach.
To date, I have only two children for Johannes and Elisabeth;
my line - Regina Susanna Barbara - b. 25 May 1773
and Maria Margaretha - b. 14 Jun 1776.
Please let me know if any of these names are familiar to you.
As a matter of interest, I have links to both Sydney and the Darling Downs area through my line from Regina.
