In Reply to: The Origins of the Partner name by Helen Partner of 3

Helen - I'm going to take a wild guess and say German, which is based upon my own heritage. My oldest ancestor that we can identify, Isaac Tusing, married Mary Ann Partner (or it could be Portner) who was born in MD in 1817. They migrated to OH, through IL, and to KS. They were closely associated with Brethren or Dunkards. Where is your family from, and how far back in the US can you go? - Carolyn
