Welcome to the DLW Database. The DLW genealogy database contains over 454,000 names (last updated Dec., 2012) of individuals, mostly descended from 18th century Mennonites, River Brethren (Brethren in Christ) and German Baptist Brethren who settled in Lancaster, Lebanon and Franklin Counties, Pennsylvania, in Ontario, Canada and in Washington Co. Maryland and Botetourt Co. Virginia. In the 1800s many families moved to Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois and Kansas. In the early 1900s there was continued migration westward.
The database was originally developed in conjunction with the compilation of the descendants and related families of Hans and Hannah Wenger. Three of their sons and Hannah immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1748 and 1749. Their descendants spread across the country and the world and now number over 128,000. After publication of the “Descendants of Hans and Hannah Wenger”, Daniel L. Wenger 2000, work continued, focusing on the descendants of Christian Wenger, immigrant of 1727. The database now contains over 182,000 descendants of Christian Wenger. Many other families are also included in the database, including other Wenger lines. There are over 182,000 names of individuals who are not descended from the Hans and Hannah Wenger family or the Christian Wenger family. These names were collected in order to assist in identifying possible other ancestors of Wenger descendants and possible other Wenger descendants.
This database was compiled using many different sources and the contributions of many people. The project would not have been undertaken if it had not been for the efforts of researchers of the C line of Wengers and the G line of Wengers. Two G line Wenger researchers who spent so many years collecting the information that formed the initial basis for this document are Norman Wenger Nauman, G1132261 and Roger Daniel Winger, G1832655. They are to be remembered as the initial genealogists of the Hans and Hannah Wenger family. Two C line Wenger books provided the bulk of the information that formed the basis of the C. “History of the Descendants of Christian Wenger”, Jonas G. Wenger, Martin D. Wenger, Joseph H. Wenger, 1903 and “The Wenger Book”, Samuel S. Wenger, Earle K. Wenger, Helen I. Wenger, 1978. The former book may be found at http://books.google.com.
Special acknowledgement needs to be given to others.
Susan Mae Wenger, 1951.6.3, G111213121, secretary of the Wenger Family Association, worked with Norman Wenger Nauman to bring his records together into a coherent form. Susan supplied to DLW (the compiler) her volumes of notes for inclusion in this document. Most of the information labeled NWN was consolidated by Susan and entered into her notebooks. Susan also made significant contributions to the format of the book. Her suggestions have resulted in a vastly improved presentation.
Mary Ann McClarnon Fokken, G181255543, a very active Wenger researcher, has worked closely with DLW in tracking down numerous families. This work has involved many, many census and library searches. Mary Ann's assistance has been extremely important.
Richard Lee Winger, G14546221 did extensive research on the descendants of Abraham Wingert, G145. In the process he organized much of the information on the other descendants, particularly in Franklin County, PA and made that research available to DLW. Richard also made his genealogy library available to DLW.
Deloris June Hammermeister Burdick, G18125F94 contributed her large history of the descendants of Jacob Wingard, 1819.3.18 1900.8.24, G18125 and Susannah Zook, 1825.11.17 1883.12.31
Orpha Joan Heitman Oppertshauser, G322D338 contributed her extensive research on current Sider, Climenhaga and Canadian Winger families.
Special acknowledgement deserves to be given to three others for supplying many corrections, updates and cemetery locations. They are
The following researchers have contributed greatly to this project, in particular, by supplying many obituaries.
Ira Burkholder Sollenberger, 1932.3.25, G14737217 Contributions labeled as IBS
Scott Buschlen http://www.buschlen.ca/index.php Contributions labeled as Scott Buschlen
Robert W. Fish, 1947.9.19, HH11243B222 Contributions labeled as rfish and rwfish.
Robert Alan Wenger, 1943.2.2, C3824C53 undertook the task of entering into the computer the contents of The Wenger Book (TWB). His efforts were helpful in obtaining the information on the descendants of Christian Wenger, C. Information from Robert is labeled RW-GED. Most of these references refer to TWB.
I would like to mention also the very important web sites http://www.omii.org/ where many valuable genealogical databases are published, the extremely large collection of genealogical databases at http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi and the collection of Mennonite Obituaries at http://www.mcusa-archives.org/MennObits/ These resources have been extremely important in collecting the information in this database. The Morman database at http://www.familysearch.org is of important value.
I would also like to acknowledge the following large databases that have been very helpful.
http://search.ancestry.com/ which includes census information
Acknowledgement needs to be given to the many, many individuals who have contributed to this project. Contributions have ranged from published books, family genealogies and family information recorded on slips of paper and in family bibles. Each and every piece has been a part of the overall picture.
Explanation of Notations
The goal of this project has been to identify the many descendants of two Wenger immigrants: of Hans and Hannah Wenger whose three sons immigrated to America in 1748 and 1749. Hans, the father, is identified as Hans Wenger, G. His children are given the numbers G1, G2, G3, etc. and of Christian Wenger immigrant of 1727. Christian is identified as Christian Wenger, C.
Recent and reasonable estimates of the birth dates of the children of Hans Wenger, G1 has led to the adoption of new G numbers for some of these offspring. Stephen, G11, Christian, G12, Judith, G13 and John, G14 have their original G numbers. Maria had the number G18 and now has the number G15. Henry had the number G15 and now has the number G16. Abraham had the number G16 and now has the number G17. Martin had the number G17 and now has the number G18. These new numbers are reflected on the monument that was placed in the Jonestown, PA Wenger Cemetery in August, 1994 to honor Hans Wenger, G1 and his children. This change of number of Hans Wenger, G1's children is referred to as new ordering.
The G numbers of the children of John Wenger, G14 have been redetermined on the basis of known information and some reasonable guesses. They differ from those used in "The Wenger Book". Christian Wenger, G144 is now G141, John Wenger, G145 is now G142, Martin Wenger, G146 is now G143, Jacob Wenger, G148 is now G140 and Abraham Wenger, G140 is now G145.
An individual is identified by name, birth date, death date, a possible descendant code, such as G or C, and possible additional information. For example:
Martin Wenger, 1742.2.2 1815.8.28, G18, (i1748)
describes Martin Wenger who was born on February 2, 1742 and died on August 28, 1815. Martin immigrated to America in 1748. His G code is G18. The G code is the standard York code where G represents Hans Wenger, the father of the three Wenger brothers who immigrated in 1748 and 1749. The offspring of Hans Wenger, G are assigned the codes G1, G2, G3 and G4 for the first, second, third and fourth born children. Martin Wenger, immigrant of 1748 is the eighth child of the first-born child of Hans Wenger, G. Thus his code is G18.
For more than nine children, the tenth is assigned the code 0, the eleventh the code A, the twelfth the code B, etc.
If a descendant with a G code marries another descendant with a G code then there is the question as to which G code to use for their offspring. Their children would have two G codes, but to simplify the notation only one G code is kept. The rule followed here is that if the two parents, both descendants of Hans Wenger, G are of the same generation, then the G code of the father is used for the offspring. If the mother is an earlier generation than the father, then the mother's G code is used for the offspring.
If an individual is a descendant of Christian Wenger, C, the immigrant of 1727 and the subject of "The Wenger Book", then that fact is indicated by the notation C.
If an individual is a descendant of Hans Lehman, 1700~ 1771, H, (i1737.10.8) ^, then that fact is indicated by the notation LH (the L is used to differentiate between a Hans Wengert, 1720~, H, (i1751) ^ descendant. See below for a full list of family notations used.
If there is ( ) within the name then there are several possible meanings. The enclosed name may be an earlier version of the name or an alternate version of the name. The enclosed name may be a prior married name of the person. Some sources do not indicate if the maiden name or the married name is within the ( ) so in some cases there is ambiguity. If the maiden name is known then it is outside of the ( ) and the married name is within the ( ). If there are two prior marriages then both married names are include within the ( ) separated by a /. At times if the name has been given in two forms, both forms are offered with a / between them.
A date with ambiguity is indicated by a ? mark. A birth or death date of 1760~ would indicate that the date is approximate and could be off by a year or two or even ten or twenty years if the estimate was based upon several generations without more information. Some books use the notation circa or an abbreviation of that word. Others use abt.
If the date is given as 1872+ then the birth or death occurred after 1872. If the date is given as 1872- then the birth or death occurred prior to 1872. A date such as 1893.4.6~ would indicate that the date is April 6, but the year is in question. A date such as 1905.6 would indicate June, 1905 without a day specified. The date 1930..6 would indicate a date of the sixth day of some month in the year 1930. If the date is followed by a 'b' then that indicates that the date is of baptism. If the date is followed by a 'p' then that indicates a probate date.
The notation 0 in the additional portion indicates that the individual had no descendants. The notation * indicates that descendants for that individual are not known. The notation ^ indicates that there is no information on the parents of the individual. The character 'a' in the additional section indicates that the individual was a foster child or adopted or descended from an adopted individual.
When the first name of a husband or father is not known, the notation father is used. This does not imply that there were children.
Summary of Main Notations
~ means approximate (equivalent to the notation cir)
^ means no parent information
* means no descendant information
0 means no descendants
BIC Brethren in Christ
OGBB Old German Baptist Brethren. Official name after the 1881 break

Reverend, Minister, Preacher, etc. Here there may be cause for criticism as OGBB ministers are not called Reverend, Preachers were called preachers and not reverend, etc. The use of Rev. is a generic term to mean that the person played a role in the church as minister/leader/giver of spiritual guidance. In general the religious affiliation of a person is not given unless that person has played a role in the church, as Deacon, Rev., Bishop, Elder etc.

The regarding the descendants of Abraham Wenger, G145 is based upon the personal researches of Richard Lee Winger, work carried out over the years since 1984. In the process of researching the descendants of Abraham, Richard Winger made a complete study of Hans' descendants in Franklin County, Pa. which included many of John Wenger's, G14 and Martin Wenger's, G18 descendants. These researches led to the identification of Abraham Wenger, G145 as a son of John Wenger, G14, an identification postulated first by Samuel S. Wenger in a conversation with Richard Winger. It should be mentioned that the above ordering of the children of Hans Wenger is the new ordering. Richard has served as the Historian for the Wenger Family Association for several years and we are all indebted to him for his careful and complete research. firstname.lastname@example.org

TWB "The Wenger Book", edited by Samuel S. Wenger, 1978. Published by the Pennsylvania German Heritage History, Inc., Lancaster, Pa. This is a major book on the descendants of Christian Wenger, C and Eve Graybill and of families married into those descendants. The on related families provides the basis for research on many of the large well known families of early Lancaster Co. Pa. The book provides some on the descendants of Hans Wenger, G, although there are significant errors in the on Hans' descendants. The claim that Abraham Wenger, G17 (new ordering) married an Indian squaw by the name of Anna Eroe is incorrect. He married Anna Groh. John Wingert, G121 in "The Wenger Book", is actually K1401, a descendant of another Wenger immigrant. Christian Wenger, G125 in TWB is actually K1404. Susanna Wenger, G142 of TWB is actually E19, a descendant of Hans Wenger, immigrant of 1737. Most importantly, Abraham Wenger, G140 of TWB is actually G1415 The descendants G1711 through G1719 of TWB are actually G181 through G189 (new ordering). Joseph Wenger, G173 of TWB is actually G183 (new ordering). His descendants should be renumbered to reflect this change. Abraham Wenger, G1777 of TWB is actually G188 (new ordering). His descendants should be renumbered to reflect this change. Martin Winger, G1721 of TWB is actually G1831 (new ordering). His descendants should be renumbered to reflect this change. The entry on page 1033 for AA1 has been identified as Joseph (Wingert) Wenger, 1808 1880.10.10, G1819

(Chart) From a family chart found among the papers of RDW giving much of the family of Abraham Wenger, 1740 1808, G17, (i1748.9.16) and in particular of Martin Wenger, 1812.1.3 1881.5.15, G1771. It is believed that the chart was prepared by Stanley Alleman Wengert, 1897.9.8 1995.5.8, G1771341 about 1935
There are many other sources of family that were helpful to this research and that have not been identified, mainly due to lack of knowledge of their names. I offer my apologies to the authors and wish to express the gratitude of the descendants for their efforts that have provided us with the information that might otherwise be lost forever.

Wenger Cemetery, Jonestown, Lebanon Co. Pa. The Wenger Cemetery is associated with the Wenger Meeting House (United Zion Church). The meeting house was built in 1871 and dedicated by Mathias Brinser who founded the United Zion Church. He was excommunicated from the River Brethren due to his having constructed a place for worship. The cemetery is just north and east of Jonestown on the original homestead of Hans Wenger, G1. The earliest stone is for Christian Wenger, 1756.12.23 1841.7.28, G141, Rev. His grandfather is believed to be buried in the grave yard as well as other earlier members of the family, but no stones exist.There is another larger and newer cemetery adjoining this cemetery which is Lutheran. John Adam Brandt, 1878.2.13 1963, G1366312, Rev. gives the following details (prepared about 1960): Jacob Wenger (Jacob W. Wenger, 1807.5.17 1881.4.10, G1405) gave a deed of trust to his brother Levi Wenger in 1859 for the then 75x80 foot grave yard. In 1871 the meeting house was built on the south side of the grave yard. Then in 1872 Levi Wenger deeded the grave yard back to Jacob Wenger. Later in the year of 1872 Jacob Wenger gave a deed of the land where the church was built, the yard in front of the church including the driveway leading to the then public road and the grave yard to the United Zions Church for five dollars. Christian Wenger, David Wenger and Henry Haldeman were the first trustees of the church (believed to be Christian Wenger, 1805.10.28 1876.12.4, G1404, Rev., David W. Wenger, 1829.6.27 1891.3.12, G14185, Rev.). The deed called for the grave yard to be used for the Wengers, Heiseys, Haldemans, Books, Lights & Longs and their relatives, or any body who wishes to bury there, but all that would bury there would have to share in paying for the upkeep of the fence around the grave yard. In 1889 land was bought from John L. Wenger, Jacob's son, to the west of the church for burial lots. In 1906 another addition to the cemetery was bought and also ground for a shed to shelter the horses and carriages during the times of services. In 1925 the cemetery was separated from the church proper and was chartered and was then a chartered cemetery operated separately from the church. However, until Aug. 24, 1953, the trustees for the church and cemetery were the same people, but elected separately. In 1955, the horse and carriage shed having been removed, additional land was acquired from Mr. Clayton H. Fortna for additional parking space. In 1977 the church property was up for sale and the cemetery association purchased the property. 40º25.06N76º28.28W
