Matthias Wilhelm Lonsinger was born in the Principality of Hohenlohe, about 57 miles north east of what is now Stuttgart, Germany. His parents were Matthias Wilhelm and an unnamed mother, who immigrated to Denmark in 1763. By 1775, Matthias was 20, living with his father and step-mother Eva Katharina and her two daughters from her previous marriage to a Mr. Merkel.

Matthias married Anna Elisabeth Fesser before 1787, and the couple went on to have six documented children:

  • Elisabeth (Lonsinger) Menzer, born 1788
  • Maria Elisabeth Lonsinger. born 1790
  • Anna Katharina Lonsinger, born 1794
  • Johann Valentin Lonsinger, born 1797
  • Heinrich Lonsinger, born 1806
  • Anna Elisabeth Lonsinger, born 1813

It's possible that Matthias and his wife had additional children, specifically girls, born between 1799 and 1817. If they were married and living with their husbands' families, they would never be listed in a census with their biological parents and siblings. This would help explain the large gaps between children 1797-1806 and 1806-1813.

In the 1798 census, Matthias is listed as an invalid.

He is not listed in the 1834 census, and is presumed to have passed away by that year. His youngest child was born in 1813, so he died some time after that. If he passed away before 1816, his death would have been noted in the 1816 male-only census and note reported again in 1834.
