If you can find a copy in your local genealogy library or fromone of the LDS stations, you will need to read and photo copy Reba Wisenbaker Paine's book "Christopher and His Children."It is currently out of print and Reba passed away about two years ago. Her son had indicated that he would be reprinting the book at some future date.
Christopher's voyage to America was very traumatic - his first boat was hijacked by Spain and then ransomed back to Holland; and he then resailed with a greatly diminished emigrants. All of the sailors, including the captain, got deathly sick and died, and the Austrian passengers had to sail the boat to the American port, barely missing Spanish Florida.
These Wisenbakers and other passengers were Salzburgers from Austria who were being forced from their homes because of the Lutheran beliefs. The Salzburg Society has a web page and has useful information there.
Jacob Wysanbacher/Wyssanbakher/Wisenbacher/Wisenbaker, his wife, Margaret/Margaretha, and Christopher Wysanbacher (possibly a son of Jacob but listed separately on the mainfest - so probably a nephew or cousin) were indentured servants. Christopher finally worked off his passage fee with his Jewish land owner, Abraham Minis, got married, raised some children who finally ventured down to Georgia, became well known farmers and wealthy, and donated most of the land to form the town of Valdosta. I believe Christopher was at least 17 years of age at that time, as younger children's age were listed on the manifest and his was not.
They were initially in the town of Ebenezer, Georgia, settled by the Lutherans in 1734, being the first settlement in Georgia. Even though they were Salzburgers, some historians also call them part of the Palatine immigration (referring to German from Germany, Austria, etc.).
Some of the clan moved to Florida and several moved to Texas after the indians were somewhat tamed and the Mexican war was over. I am from one of those Texas immigrating Wisenbakers--John Franklin Wisenbaker.
I have most of Reba's information in my Gedcom file and RTF/html/wpd files online at my web site: http://laanderson.com/laa-gene.htm#wisenhttp://laanderson.com/laa-gene.htm#wisen.If you have additional information that will add to any gaps in my data, please contact me personally.
Wisenbaker name could have come from "Weitzenbeck," "Weisenbeck," [associated with white bread] "Weisbeck" or "Weisbach" [associated with white, clear stream]. I personally believed the clan ate white bread while they fished by a clear, white stream--most of the Wisenbakers I know were hunters and fishermen.
