Wissinger Family


Bob Wissinger


Ludwig Wissinger, my ggggg-grandfather (1756-1842) moved his family to Roaring Springs Run, Woodbury Twp., Bedford Co. (now Blair Co.), Pa onto 216 acres. This land was never before surveyed and was surveyed on Sept 14, 1786. The land was purchased fro the State of Penn. by Warrant No. 213, dated Sept. 13, 1786 at a price of ten pounds per hundred acres. Ludwig was the first white man to own this land and the land was located in Morrison Cove on both sides of Roaring Springs Run. This land was sold 4 years later to Jacob Stevens, by Deed dated Sept 27, 1790 with the deal completed by Patent dated Aug 18, 1804. Ludwig Wissinger moved his family to Somerset Co., Pa (now Conemaugh Twp., in Cambria Co. Pa). Reference: 1786 Pennsylvania archives; 3rd series, Vol. 25; Warrantees of Land: page 658.
