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.

  1. You have a very informative sight. I came across it as I was trying to gain access to this book which you cited: Almarie Moore Edwards and C Walter England; History and Genealogy of Caples Family and Allied Families of Maryland; Jacksonville, Florida; D.C. Thompson; 1964. My ancestors were Caples in Ohio., Janet

  2. Happy Blogiversary!!

  3. Hi I am looking for information on Charlotte Brenner and her parents Jacob Brenner and Sarah Ann Mathews. Charlotte married Timothy Munger. They are my great grandparents. Timothy was in Libby prison during the civil war. Please contact me if you have any information.
