GREENWALT (Von Grunenvalt) Alsace-Loraine to US
Posted by: Lynn Proud Date: April 17, 1998 at 03:04:23

Looking for for cousins. I have Leonard Berhnardt? GREENWALT who was the 3rd of 6 children born in Theodore and Mary GROSS GREENWALT. He was born ca. 1800, not sure if in Germany or France? He came to the USA bringing his wife, Margaret KAISER, and most of his children:

1) Peter b. bef. 1831 didn't come here
2) Theodore b. 1831
3) John Peter b.1831-1835 died as a child
4) Catherina b. 1835
5) Margaret b. 1836
6) Charles b. 1838
7) John Henry b.1842
8) Frank b. 1846
9) Elizabeth b. 1847
10) Barbara b. 1856 here, died as a child

The family was said to have left from the LeHavre of France in 1854, landing at New York City, and going directly to Jo Daviess County, IL. In some land records, John Greenwalt was listed as John Von Grunenvalt, so that may have been their name before they came here and may be why I couldn't find them on a ships list before. I would like to find out more on Peter that remained in Alsace-Loraine and also on the possible siblings of Leonard. If anyone can help or connects to this family I have tons of descendant info to share so please e-mail me! Thanks....Lynn
