My name is Gail Brandt, descendant of
Emily Carolyn Gegenheimer Freggens. I found your web site and found it
very interesting. You have obviously put a lot of work into it.. Our
family is descended from Wilhelm Gegenheimer and his wife Anna ( or
Justina) Huber. They were married in Baden-Baden around 1885 and
immigrated to northern New Jersey. The family story is that he was the
youngest of six brothers, who were all conscripted into the army and his
mother helped him raise the money to come to America to keep him out of
the war. He had a son Karl in 1888, daughter Anna 1992, daughter Justina
and daughter Emily.
If you have any leads to our side of the family tree
please let me know.
I am currently living in Baltimore,Md and still have some relatives in N.
J. My father is attempting to reach his cousins for more information. My
grandmother Emily had two children, Florence and Robert. Robert
is my father and he had four daughters; Gail, Debra. Barbara and Joan.
Florence had two children, Marilyn and Ronald. My
Aunt Anna was single until she passed away at 100. Aunt Justina had
several children, most of whom are still in N.J. and I will try to get in
touch with them.
Keep in touch.
