Neisz and Smith Family Genealogy

Thank you for selecting the The Neisz Family of Virginia web site.  New information has been added and will continue to be added.    

The earliest known ancestor for the Neisz line is Charles Neisz.  Two families who married into the Neisz line are the Smith's and Wyatt's. 

Charles Neisz came to America in the 1840's.  His port of entry is unknown but he settled in Richmond, Virginia.  His date of birth is 12 March 1835 and he was born in Hesse-Kassel, Germany and death occurred on a Saturday at 606 W. Broad St. in Richmond, VA on 11 October 1902.  He married Helena Roescher on 08 January 1854 on a Sunday at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Richmond, VA.  Helena's date of birth is 19 March 1834 Wednesday in Neckargemund, Baden, Germany and her death was 02 February 1895 in Richmond, VA.

It is believed that Charles Neisz was the son of William Neisz and mother Margaret ?.  After Helena died, Charles married again to Barbar Hulcher AmrheinAll of Charles' children were from the marriage to Helena.  Records indicate 13 children:

Two sisters-Minnie Louise Neisz and Ida May Neisz married the same man William H. Wyatt JrA family story my mother handed down claims that this Wyatt family had kinship to a Wyatt that was once Governor of Virginia.   This would have been Sir Francis Wyatt
of the early 1600's.  Some marginial proof of this exists but not enough to claim kinship.  Any info in this area would be appreciated.
