I am researching my 3x great grandmother Ginna Blengsinger. The spelling of first and last name is not for sure. I am hoping some of you German wiz people may be able to shed some light on this. Her is what we have put together on her, although the fact may not be correct.
*born in Germany around 1800-1810. We are guessing more 1805.
*She was a weaver.
*She likely boarded ship in Hamburg between 1820-1822 and landed in port of New Orleans.
*She was said to be indentured and was bought by Jesse Greer who was a merchant.
*He later married her when his wife passed away in 1822.
*Rumor has it that she was Jewish. Either phased out her DNA or she was Jewish by religion not blood. I don't show any Jewish.
*Another passed down spelling was Bloodstringer.
*She died 03/19/1941 in Ruth, Lincoln County, Mississippi
Her profile still needs a lot of work and sourcing is very scarce. I think if I can break the name wall, I might be able to figure out more about this lady.
