Happy 266th Grandfather Gaertner!

266 years ago, 11 May 1754, in Kleiningersheim, Württemberg, my four times great grandfather, Johannes Gaertner was born to Melchior Gaertner and Maria Barbara Stockheimer.

What little I know about Grandfather Gaertner I have gleaned from church records that were microfilmed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for which I am always amazed and grateful!

Johannes Gaertner married Christina Leibbrandt, daughter of Christian Leibrandt, on 28 November 1780, in the Evangelisch, Grossingersheim, Württemberg.   I have only record of one of their children, my three times great grandfather, Alexander, born 1785.  Alexander and his wife provided 12 grandchildren to Johannes and Christina including my great great grandfather, Wilhelm Gotthardt Gaertner who came to the United States in 1854 and modified his name to be William G. Gardner.

Johannes Gaertner died 23 March 1791, in Kleiningersheim.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
