Henry Reisner is another immigrant ancestor on my Dad’s side.
He is my 2ndGreat Grandfather.
Henry was born 19 Sept 1814 in Poppengrun, Bavaria, Germany. He married Maria Margaret Haueisen around 1847 (before immigrating to the United States).
He came to New York in 1848 and went to Stoughton, Dane County, Wisconsin where he rented a place. In 1859, the family moved to Fayette County, Iowa and in 1864 he had purchased land.
Henry died in West Union, Fayette County, Iowa on 19th of December 1891.
Henry & Maria had 10 children. The oldest, Christian, was born in 1850 in Wisconsin and the youngest, Louisa, was born in Iowa in 1871.
Henry had 2 brothers that also immigrated and lived in Iowa – Christian born circa 1809 and Adam born in 1823.
