Origin of the surname “Kirchner:”

 

Generation

 

5   

 

4    Heinrich Kirchner

 

A. Biographical notes:

 

Of Dauernheim, Hessia (Germany).  Was living as late as approximately 1804, when his son, Henry, was born, but there is no record to indicate Heinrich (which is German for Henry) emigrated to the United States.

 

B. Wife: Christine (perhaps).

 

Born about 1771.  Emigrated to America, probably with her son, Philip, and his family, in July 1831.  It's not clear if they came at the same time, and its not even clear they are related.  Christine Kirchner may have lived in Philip's household in America, but died 24 September 1848, age 77, about 2 years before the 1850 US Census - the first census to include the names of all members of households.  She was interred in Market Street Cemetery, Cape Vincent, New York (same as her probable son, Philip).

 

C. U.S. Census Records:

 

1840: No record of Heinrich or Christina Kirchner was found in New York.  Of interest, the following Kirchner/Kershner households of unknown relation were residing in New York State:

 

a. Francis Kirchner, Buffalo, Erie County.

b. John Kershner, Danville, Steuben County.

c. Philip Kershner, Danville, Steuben County.

 

1850: No record of Heinrich or Christina Kirchner was found in New York State.  Of interest, here are some of the Kirchner-sounding households recorded in New York State:

 

a. Adam Kirchner, Buffalo, Erie County.

b. Catherine Kirchner, Buffalo, Erie County.

c. Christopher Kirchner, Buffalo, Erie County.

d. Frederick Kirchner, Buffalo, Erie County.

e. Frederick Kirchner, Ava Township, Oneida County.

e. Frederick Kirchner, Boonville, Oneida County.

f. John Kirchner, Williams, King County.

g. Lawrence Kirchner, Troy, Rensselaer County.

h. Leo Kirchner, Troy, Rensselaer County.

i. Louisa Kirchner, Buffalo, Erie County.

j. Margaret Kershner, Troy, Rensselaer County.

k. Gasper Kirkner, Flushing, Queens County.

l. Catherine Kerkner, Genesee, Livingston County.

m. Henry Kerkner, North Dakota, Livingston County.

n. Joseph Kerkner, Genesee, Livingston County.

o. Polly Kerkner, Hartland, Livingston County.

p. William Kerkner, North Dakota, Livingston County.

 

D. Children:

 

1. Catherine Kirchner: Born about 1800 in Germany.

 

1850 US Census: Catherin Pengal, age 50 (b. Germany), resided in the household headed by [her presumed brother] Philip Kirkner, age 49, in Cape Vincent Township, Jefferson County, New York.  See Philip's household, generation 3, below.

 

Catherine married (?) Pengal and (perhaps) had the following son:

 

a. Henry Pengal: Born about 1826 in Germany.  Employed as a laborer.

 

1850 US Census: Henry Pengal, age 24 (b. Germany) and employed as a laborer, resided in the household headed by [his presumed uncle] Philip Kirkner, age 49, in Cape Vincent Township, Jefferson County, New York.

 

1855 NYS Census: No Pengal households found in New York State.

 

1860 US Census: There was a Henryce Pengal, age 36 (b. Hezzen), heading a household in Croghan Township, Lewis County, New York.  The household also included Tolitea Pengal, age 23 (b. Hezzen); Louis Fistal, age 37 (b. Prussia); Cathrine Fistal, age 31 (b. Prussia); Philip Fistal, age 6 (b. Prussia); Louis Fistal, age 3 (b. Prussia); and Charles Fistal, age 1 (b. Prussia).

 

1865 NYS Census: No Pengal households found in New York State.

 

1870 US Census: No Pengal households found in the US.

 

1880 US Census: There were 2 Pengal households enumerated in the US: (1) August Pengal, age about 53 (b. Germany), in Ripley Township, Butler County, Iowa.  (2) John Pengal, age about 56 (b. Germany), in Afton Township, Cherokee County, Iowa.

 

Note: The conjecture that Catherine Pengal was a daughter of Heinrich Kirchner and the mother of Henry Pengal is based entirely on her age, birthplace, and her presence, along with Henry Pengal, in the Philip Kirchner (gen 3, below) household in Cape Vincent, New York in 1850.

 

Also of interest: There were no Pengal households recorded in the 1840 and 1860 US Censuses for New York State or the 1860 and 1870 Censuses for Minnesota.  However, a Henry Bengal (b. about 1824 in Hessia) was recorded in the 1860 US Census for Lewis County, New York.

 

2. Johann Phillipp/Philip "Henry" Kirchner: See generation 3, below.

 

3. Henry Kirchner. (perhaps; could this be Philip?) Born about 1803 in Germany.

 

1860 U.S. Census: (duplicate below under Philip) Henry Kirchner was 57 years old.  His wife, Margaret, was 55.  Both were born in Hessia (Germany).  Their real estate was valued at $2,500 and their personal property was valued at $1,000.  They resided beside the household of Philip Kirchner, Jr., in Cape Vincent, New York.  Henry's household also included a grown daughter, Christina (age 22, b.  N.Y. State), indicating this Henry was in New York by at least 1838; and a servant, Philip Marks (age 18, b. Hessia).

A. Biographical notes:

 

"KERKNER" according to his cemetery headstone; "KITCHNER" was also used in one record.  Born 18 May 1803 in Hessia (Germany).  Died 15 March 1882, age 78 years, 10 months; interred beside his wife, Anna and granddaughter, Anna/Anne C. Kirchner (photos) (dau of his son, Henry, who d. 10 Nov 1856, age 2 yrs, 1 mo., 1 day), in Market Street Cemetery in the Village of Cape Vincent, Cape Vincent Township, Jefferson County, New York.

 

Johann Philip Kirchner married in Germany according to the terms of the following contract:

 

"IN THE NAME OF THE HOLY TRINITY, TO WITT:

"Philip" (age 28), his wife "Margaret" (age 25), and their two small children (Henry (age 4), Louisa (age 3)) left their home in Dauerheim, Germany on 4 June 1831, the emigration having been approved by the Governor of the Archduchy of Hesse and Rhein on that date.  On 20 June 1831 Philip attested to the fact that he was willing and ready, wife and family, to travel and land in North America without being interfered with or stopped and that he hoped to be protected by law in every way in North America, cared for, helped if needed, and given advice.

 

They set sail at Bremenhaven (which means: harbor of Bremen) for New York City on 4 July 1831.  His emigration record, signed, sealed and dated 20 June 1831 by an official of Dauernheim, gave the following additional physical characteristics of Philip Kirchner:

 

Height: 7.2 (does this mean 7' 2"?)

Hair and eyebrows: light blonde

Forehead: low

Eyebrows: light

Eyes: blue

Nose: pointed

Mouth: small

Beard (goatee): blonde

Chin: round

Face: oblong

Color: natural

Special markings: none

 

Philip and Margaret probably resided for approximately 3 to 4 years somewhere in Onondaga County, New York before moving north to Cape Vincent, New York by about 1835 because (1) his second daughter's birth (Catherine in 1835) was recorded as being in Onondaga County, and (2) at the time of the 1855 census of New York State, Philip, Sr. claimed to have been living for 20 years in Cape Vincent, leaving some 4 years in America missing after immigration in 1831.

 

According to the Jefferson County, New York State deed book, on 1 March 1852 Philip and his wife, Margaret purchased from Warren Wilson for $568 approximately 51.68 acres of lot 19 in Cape Vincent, beginning at the Catholic Church and running to the St. Lawrence River.

 

In May 1858 Philip and Margaret Kirchner borrowed $500 from Francis A. Cross and placed a mortgage on their land on lot 19, Cape Vincent.  That action may be related to the severe financial panic that swept the nation in 1858 and was especially sever in New York State.  However, Philip paid off these obligations in full on 24 February 1864, probably using the proceeds from the sale of a portion of his lot-19 land to Mr. Peter Zimmerman on 6 January 1864 for $3,281.68, a considerable profit over the purchase price of $568.

 

Philip Kirchner also sold for $1,500 one acre of land (and perhaps the Kirchner residence) to Philip Marks, who had been a servant in his household in 1860 and eventually became his son-in-law, by marrying (2nd) Catherine "Kate" Kirchner.  By 1870 Philip and Margaret Kirchner resided in the household of their son-in-law, Philip Marks, in Cape Vincent.

 

B. Census Records:

 

1840 US Census: Philip "Kirkner" was heading a household in Lyme Township, Jefferson County, New York.  He was between 30 and 40 years old.  The household also contained a female between 30 and 40 years old [Margaret], 2 females less than 5 years old [dau Harriet], a male and a female between 5 and 10 years old [son, Philip], and a boy and a girl between 10 and 15 years old.

D. Children: (6 total)

 

1. Henry Kirchner: Born in July 1827 in Hessia (Germany) and emigrated to the United States with his parents, probably at approximately age 4.  Died 1916.

 

Henry Kirchner married (1st) Rosanna "Rosina" (?) (b. 1830 in NYS, parents b. Switzerland; d. probably in KS) where son Amos was born).  Note: In 1875 Henry's household included "Grand M," Catharine Dullenbeck, age 81 (b. [abt 1794] in Switzerland), so she may be Rosina's grandmother.  Henry was employed as a stone mason in the Cape Vincent, New York area until sometime after 1860, when he and his family (and, perhaps his brother's family) moved west to Minnesota.  Reasons for the move are not clear, but it could have been associated with the nationwide financial panic of 1858, the availability of work for masons in northern New York, or the death of Philip, Jr.'s first wife.  At any rate, on 17 July 1866 Henry purchased lot 5 of block number 20 in the town of Chaska, Carver County, Minnesota for $135.  That property was located five lots off the main street of the town and at the south edge of both the town and the business district.  Little more than two years later, 28 August 1868, Henry Kirchner sold the same property for $1,000 (a sizable profit) to Mrs. Emma Baxter, wife of an attorney who later became a well respected Judge in Carver County. There are no records to indicate if the property had been improved by Henry.  Before the final sale papers were signed (28 Oct 1868) Henry and Rosanna had already moved to Willow Springs, Douglas County, Kansas.

 

William "Will" Kirchner, son of Philip, Jr. and Philip's second wife, Henrietta, and, thus, a person who would have firsthand knowledge of his uncle Henry, related that Henry Kirchner was employed as a stone mason at Fort Snelling and Fort Ridgely, Minnesota, with a homestead for a short while in the area known as Mendota.  However, this can not be confirmed from Census records because Henry apparently did not arrive in Minnesota until after the state census of 1865, was in Minnesota when his daughter, Lulu, was born in 1867, but left in time to have his son, Amos, born in Kansas in 1868.

 

1840 US Census: Henry Kirchner was between 10 and 15 years old and living with his parents in Lyme Township, Jefferson County, New York.

Kerkener, age 1 (b. Jefferson Co., NY); and son, Henry Kerkener, age 1 month (b. Jefferson Co., NY).

 

1860 US Census: Henry Kirchner, age 33 and employed as a stone mason, was head of a household in the Village of Cape Vincent, New York.  His real estate was valued at $400, and his personal property was valued at $100.  Other members of the household included his wife, Rosanna, age 30; son, William H., age 5; son, Philip S., age 4; and son, James E., age 2.  This Henry was born in Germany; the other members of the household were born in New York State.

NY); son, Wilheim (age 15, b. NY); son, Samuel (age 13, b. NY); son, James (age 12, b. N.Y.); son, John (age 10, b. NY); daughter, Eduon (age 8, b. NY); daughter, Lulu (age 3, b.

Kirchner, your nephew.”

 

2. Louisa Kirchner: See generation 2, below.

 

3. Philip Kirchner/Kirkner, Jr.: Born about 1832 in New York State, about 1 year after his parents and 2 older siblings immigrated to the US from Germany.  Perhaps/likely the Philip Kirchner who was born 6 August 1832 and died 5 January 1911 in Saskatchewan, Canada, with interment in Berg Cemetery, Willow Bunch Township, Saskatchewan (SW of Regina and just above the US border).

 

1850 US Census: At the time of enumeration in August, 1850 both Touessant and Frances (?) Lawrence were age 55 and born in France.  Touessant was employed as a farmer with real estate valued at $900.  They lived in Cape Vincent, New York and had living with them a son, Nicholas (age 25, b.

NYS); son, Philip, Jr., age 5 (b. NYS); and daughter, Margaret Kirchner, age 1 (b.

Considering Philip, Jr.'s subsequent move west to Minnesota, it is interesting to note that in 1850 there was just one Kirchner-sounding name, a Thomas Kerkner, age 35 and born in Austria, recorded as living in Minnesota.  That Thomas was stationed as a soldier at Mahkahta County, Minnesota.  There were no Kirchner households recorded in Minnesota at the time of the 1860 US Census.  However, by 1870 there were numerous Kirchner/ Kerchner households recorded there:

Lawrence (b. 1794, d. 27 Mar 1883, age 89, interred same plot as her husband in Cape Vincent) at Cape Vincent, New York.  Touessant and Frances Lawrence must have immigrated to America from France between 1825 and 1831, because Margaret Lawrence was born in New York State.

 

In 1850 Philip Kirchner, Jr. was 19 years old.  By 1859 he and Margaret had a daughter, Margaret Frances Kirchner, referred to as "Francis," and they resided beside Philip Kirchner, Sr. in Cape Vincent Township, Jefferson County, New York.

 

Margaret (Lawrence) Kirchner died 31 August 1866, age 33, after 11 years of marriage.  Her remains were interred beside her father in Rosiere Cemetery in Cape Vincent. Shortly after, on 13 November 1869, Philip, Jr. sold a portion of his property in lot 19, Cape Vincent to Mary Merchant of Cape Vincent, New York and moved with his two small children to Minnesota.  He probably lived there, at least briefly, with his brother, Henry Kirchner.

 

On 10 October 1868 Philip, Jr. purchased for $700 approximately 80 acres of Minnesota River bottom land near one of the few bridges across that river to the town of Shakoppee.  This town was an important location where the Indian councils would meet for tribal affairs.  In July 1875 Philip purchased from the railroad for $200 another 40 acres that was very steep and hilly, probably good only for the value of its timber.  He sold both pieces of land in February 1878 for $2,450, after which he probably moved to his final home on Bird Island (Hector area) in Renville County, Minnesota.

 

Philip, Jr. and Margaret had the following children:
