Comments:
Makes me homesick for mountains to read all this. Toronto is very flat. Geographically that is. Very many people here, and I love it. However nothing compares with summers spent at my Grandparents, John and Catherine Wagner, Peter Ringenary, and of course Aunt Ann Ringenary. Some relations still live there. I am having some difficulty w/ family tree because of distance, Am particularly interested in a John(Johann)Regneri(y)married to Eva?? at St. Mauritius possibly, and maybe lived in Fountain Springs late 1800's, And an Angela Regneri(y) Muller? married to a Nicholas Muller, They arrived in Ashland shortly before 1859, When My GGGGgrandfather Nicolaus Peter Regneri(y) was married to (Anna) Catherina Schneider, at St. Mauritius. Possibly they would be interred at the cemetary at the church. Am also looking for information on Isidore St(e)abler, and (Catherine)Regina Deitz, in Fountain Springs at the same time period. I have looked in vain at the 1880PA. survey and cannot find any variation of the name Regneri-changed to Regnery- and then part of family changed spelling to Ringenary. I have info I would be willing to share.
