MEISBURGER

My Maternal Ancestory research led me to find that along with German forefathers, there was a French background.

MAXAMIN (MAXAMILION) MEISBURGER with wife HANNAH (MARGARET ANNA) and eight children arrived in Boonville, Missouri on May 27, 1848, IGNATIOUS DIRINGER and wife MAGDALENE and family were on the same boat to America. Both families settled in the area.

There is much research to be done on these families and a real challenge to someone in the future. I only hope that what I have found will be a guideline for someone in the future.

These first pages of this Manuscript are an update on the material I had written in 1981. 1 was fortunate to get in touch with a lady In France, Madame Jean Fares, who has been very helpful. The fuller record, I now have of the MEISBURGER Family is from Harrstatt, Upper-Rhin, France. Later information is from Herrlisheim, Haute-Rhin, France.

The origin of the MEISBURGER Family may have been in Busch in Turgau, France and the name may have been spelled at that time, MOSBURGER.

Original 1981 Manuscript by Helen Stone Woodruff Begins Here

I. MEISBURGER, MAXAMIN (MAXAMILION) was born about the year 1792 in Alsace Lorraine, France, HISTORY of COOPER COUNTY, MISSOURI by W. F. JOHNSON, published in 1919 stated. "MAX MEISBURGER, with his family of eight children arrived in Boonville, Missouri in 1848. MAX MEISBURGER had served for six years as a soldier in the army of the great Napoleon and was very proud of the medals he had received far bravery. During the progress of the Franco-Prussian War (1870-73) he kept posted through the French papers which he received. When the Prussian Victory was announced, he, with clenched fists and tear dimmed eyes, declared 'If our great Napoleon had lived, he and 1 would never have tolerated the Prussians to lord it over our Beloved France'. He expressed the belief that his grandchildren would live to see the happy day when Alsace Lorraine would be liberated from the Prussian domination. During the time of America's participation in the World War, which resulted in the return to France of the 'lost' province, nine of his great-grandsons answered the call to the front and when the Armistice was declared in the fall of 1918, six more were waiting for the next call."

There is a Deed in the Courthouse at Boonville, Cooper County, Missouri, stating 1-Aug-1852, MAXAMIN MEISBERGER bought a lot of ground in the City of Boonville from Jeremiah Rice for One hundred and seventy five dollars. .
