Misenheimer Family Reunion

ReunionIt is believed that most of the Misenheimers of the US are descendants of Johann Jakob Meisenheimer, the first known American Misenheimer. He came to Pennsylvania from Germany in 1743 and later, about 1775, moved to present day Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina with his family. Nearby St. John’s Lutheran Church was the family church and in 1999 the descendants erected a granite and bronze memorial to Johann and his family in the church cemetery.

Several other Meisenheimers immigrated to America generally in the 1860’s and 70’s mostly to mid-state Illinois.

We emphasize that this is a reunion for ALL Misenheimers and marriage related families. It is not just applicable to only one small group from a small limb of the family tree, but for ALL on the total tree that was first planted in America in 1743, so to say.

Any descendants of the 1860's Meisenheimer immigrants are also warmly welcome as we may well be related prior to 1743 in Germany.

This will be our 29th reunion. 

The Reunion again will be at the St. John’s Lutheran Church Community Building. St. John’s is either the oldest or second oldest Lutheran congregation in North Carolina, established in the 1740's. Just by walking around the churchyard and through the large cemetery one easily senses the rich church heritage and family heritages of the early German settlers of the area.
