Welcome to Brenner Genealogy
Home of the Brenner Family Tree & the “Stardust ‘n’ Roots” Blog
Come on in and sit a spell. We’ve saved a place for you in gg-grandfather’s (John Brenner) rocking chair… 2g-grandpa Brenner used this chair when he worked as office manager for a construction firm in Youngstown, Ohio. That was his last job. After arriving in the United States in 1854, he had served as a nursery-man, cemetery superintendant, and marble salesman prior to his working as an office manager. At different times he was also a public health official and a census enumerator.
We have some spiced tea brewing and have poured you a cup, using Gg-grandmother’s (Kate Brenner, nee Welk) tea cup. 2g-grandma Brenner was born in Columbiana County, Ohio, and spent her whole life in Columbiana & Mahoning Counties. She moved a few miles north into Youngstown after eloping to marry John Brenner. She bore 15 children to their marriage, nine of whom survived past their 22nd birthdays. My g-grandfather, Lloyd Brenner, was the fifth child born to John and Kate Brenner.
So… sit back, relax, sip your tea, and look around!
We hope you like what you see and will come back again soon.
