Hi. Elisabeth Wingerson was my great-great grandfather's sister. We have recently located another descendant of Christian and Elisabeth (through their youngest son who married an Anspach). What has caused a big problem in locating individuals is the fact the Stark County, Ohio, transcribed marriage records for them showed Christian's last name to be Heseman. (I visited Elisabeth and Christian's grave site last weekend after being in contact with one of your relatives). It appears Elisabeth's name was actually Anna Maria Elisabeth after her mother, Anna Maria Elisabeth Zink. The original family name was shown in two ways: Wingertszahn and Wingertzahn. Elisabeth's birth record is shown on the LDS Church site at under Anna Maria Wingertszahn. Her parents are shown to be Johann Georg (he was called George) Wingertszahn and Anna Maria Zink. Birth place was in Adenbach, Pfalz, Bavaria (Germany) Mar 17, 1823. The ship records from July 2, 1842, shows Elisabeth (age 19) arriving in the U.S. with her family (the name being shown as Wingertzahn). Also on the LDS site is Elisabeth and Christian's marriage record shown as: Elizabeth Wingerson and Christian Heseman married on May 28, 1843. Elisabeth's siblings were Johann Georg, Phillipina, Catharina, Peter, Jacob and George. The family first settled in Massillon (Stark Co.), Ohio which is the first city west of Canton, Ohio, where Elisabeth and christian were married. I have additional information. I can be reached at -Sharon Wingerson Naderman
