Steininger Genealogy

Steininger Genealogy

I have been trying to find the connection between the Steininger families of Pennsylvania.  Unfortunately, I have not.  However, I am making progress.  I have found several items that may lead to a solution.  

I completed further research into the Steininger family.  The earliest Steininger family that I have found is that of Hans Jorg Steininger.

Hans Jorg Stenninger

Immigration from Germany to America

Immigration of the Steininger family from Bavaria and Württemberg came early in the new country.

Jurgh Steiniger (Georg or George Steininger) arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the ship James Goodwill from Rotterdam, September 27, 1727.  According to the book – Pennsylvania German Pioneers….* on page 10 – Jurgh Steiniger is listing is: Men to be sworn 1 Number in family 7.  That means that he and his family came together.

Johan Leonard Steininger arrived in Philadelphia on the ship Britannia September 11, 1731.  According to the book Pennsylvania German Pioneers… on page 48, Johan at the age of 35, left from Rotterdam and traveled to Philadelphia. This would make his birth year as 1696. The information in the book did not indicate that he came with anyone. On page 52, is a listing of individuals who took the Oath of Allegiance after they arrived.  In this listing Johan is listed as Leonhart Steininger.

Jurgh (George) Stininger was one of the original inhabitants of Lehigh County in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  From the History of Lehigh County Pennsylvania – Volume 1 – published in 1914 the following

Macungie township was the next to be organized. Edward Scull surveyed the proposed township at the request of the inhabitants on Jan. 28, 1742, and on June 16, 1743, they presented their petition to the Bucks county court, as
follows:
                 “To the Honourable Justices of the Peace holding Court at Newtown, the Sixteenth day of June, 1743:
“The humble petition of us, the Inhabitants of Macongy, humbly sheweth that your Petitioners lived this many years without any Township laydout but have been at the chargé of having it surveyed. We desire that you in your goodness would be pleased to confirm the same unto us, your Petitioners, according to this Draught annexed, and your Petitioners as per Duty bound, shall ever Pray.”
            Peter Tracksler                Henry Shoeth
            Melchor Smith                 George Stininger
           Jere, Tracksler                 Jacob Mier

The court records state: “Petition read June,1743, from Macungie for a township. Ordered
that the Prayer of the Petitioners be granted unless some reasons be offered to the Court against it.

 In this year, 1743, the township contained six hundred and fifty inhabitants. These three townships were the only ones erected while Lehigh county was a part of Bucks county.
