* spelled mit unlaut and variations including Bronimann & Broennimann
+ one source (McKenzie) says that there was another generation before, Nicholaus, Sr. (1697-1785), wife unknown. That would make 13 generations.
# Maria’s mother Helena was also a Brenneman, daughter of Samuel K. (1759-1834). We believe this is the same line from the Melchiors. Her mother was Marie Schwartzentruber (1765- ).

      Thanks. Very interesting! Please stay in touch if anything else comes up. I’m still working on the Somerset Co. Brennemens. BTW, if you look in the Pearce Table of Contents, there’s a Tice commentary on our family narrative. I wonder if we’re related.
