In Reply to: Re: KORING FAMILY HISTORY by Shannon Angelic Marie Koring of 29

I have been researching our family genealogy for many years.Our name is KOERING, however our ancesters in Germany spell it Köring. Upon coming to America the spelling become KOERING. I spoke with a KORING that told me when his family came to America they were told not to add the "E" because the American don't pronounce it anyway.

Our great-grandfather Johan Ludwig Koering (born March 24, 1849 in Erkeln, Westphalen, Germany) came to America on March 17, 1873 on the ship “Mosel”. He was naturalized in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, and then moved to Vineland, New Jersey.
He had at least three brothers:
· Andreas Koering –born July 19, 1834
· Franz W. Koering – born September 16, 1845
· Johann Theodore Gottried Koering - born October 1, 1831, he also came to America, he lived in Wexford, Allegheny County, PA (1861-?). He built a wagon -blacksmith shop in Wexford. We have not been able to trace him beyond that. We do not know if he married, had children or where he died.
