     Andreas Ludwig Kessinger witnessed ANDREAS KESSINGER was born about 1703, in, or near, the town of Welschneureuth, (in Selzen, Rheinhess,
Hesse) .(in: “The Palatinate”; “On the Rhine”), in Germany.
Andreas is the progenitor of "almost" all of the KESSINGERs that moved west during the early days of our
country's westward expansion.
The earliest recorded document that is known that contains information about Andreas, is in the “RELEASE
FROM SERVITUDE” document that was drawn up to release Andreas and his family from “indentured
servitude” to Wilhelm Fredrich Lars of Baden in 1737. This document gives the family the permission to leave
the Sovereign’s principality; with implied permission for the family to leave the country.
This document shows (we assume) the correct spelling of Andreas’s family name of KESSINGER (using the old
German letter for “s” which looks very similar to our current day “f”). In addition, this document includes the
name of his wife, as Susannah Fischern (Fisher). And the names of their four children:
George Michael Kessinger – (9 years old - born in 1728 in Saltzen, Germany.)
Mathias Kessinger – (6 years old - born in 1731 in Saltzen, Germany.)
Andreas Kessinger II (Jr.) – (4 years old - born in 1733 in Saltzen, Germany.)
Catherine Barbara Kessinger – (1 ½ years old - born in 1735 in Saltzen, Germany.)
The next document that contains information about Andreas Kessinger is found in the passenger list of the ship
WILLIAM, which Andreas took to America.
[List 50B] “Palantines imported in the Ship WILLIAM, John Carter, Master, from Amsterdam but last from
Dover,
as by Clearance thence. Qualified the 31st. of October 1737.”

Andreas Kessinger and Johann Georg Kessinger”
We next find a record of Andreas’s family settling in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and expanding their family
of 4 children, to eight children. (There may have been a ninth child, Dorothy. To the present time, we have not
been able to find documentation on her. -- If any one knows of any documented proof on Dorothy; please let us
know.)
In the Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Warrick Congregation -- Baptisms Book, page 12.
(From the Warrick Congregation, Warrick Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Now it is known as the Emanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church, Brickerville, Elizabeth Township, Lancaster
Co., Pennsylvania), we find:

Andreas’s wife – Susanna Fischerin.)

Andres Kessinger Casinger
Johann Georg Kessinger Casinger
----------------------------
According to legend, Andreas was a priest, but didn't feel he was suited for the position. His father, Ludwig
Kessinger, was quite wealthy and it was traditional for at least one son to join the priesthood. So Andreas left the
Church and all his father's wealth, took Johannes, supposedly a former nun, as his wife, and they set sail from
Belgium to America on the White Line ship Catherine. Supposedly the Kessinger family owned considerable
property, including a castle or two on the Rhine and/or Ruhr Rivers. I received one "history" that said the family
originated in Essen, Germany and that they were a family of singers, thus Kessensingers. But the word for singer
in German is NOT singer! But they may have been from the Essen area for it lies in the Palatinate.
Some descendants living in America wanted to return to claim their wealth, but World War 1 took care of that
dream.
It was pure luck that I found their names on the ship's passenger list in the first volume of Pennsylvania Pioneers
(by Ralph Strassburger) I opened. Their signatures as well as their names typed for clarification appear
