Ehrenreich Rainer and Anna Katharina Greineisen

Ehrenreich Rainer was born in 1618 in Schönbühel an der Donau, Melk, Lower Austria, Austria to Balthasar Rainer. Ehrenreich married first Anna Katharina Greineisen 10 April 1651 in Battenberg, Waldeck-Frankenberg, Hesse, Germany. Anna Katharina was born about 1630 in Frankenberg, Waldeck-Frankenberg, Hesse, Germany to Hartmann Greineisen.

Ehrenreich was a "hess. Forstschreiber" (Hessian forest clerk).

Anna Katharina was buried 14 July 1663 in Battenberg, Waldeck-Frankenberg, Hesse, Germany. Ehrenriech married second Elisabeth Nagel (daughter of Hans Nagel) 8 May 1665 in Battenberg, Waldeck-Frankenberg, Hesse, Germany. Elisabeth died 19 April 1681 and Ehrenreich married third Magdalena Streithoff (daughter of Johannes Streithoff and widow of Alexander Hofmann and Johannes Burgk) 7 April 1681. Ehrenreich died 4 or 14 July 1688, age 70.


Ehrenreich and Anna Katharina's children are:

  1. Johann Philipp Rainer, born 10 February 1652, the Stadtschreiber (town clerk) of Reinheim, Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hesse, Germany. He married Catharina Gertraut -- (b. abt. 1653, d. and bur. 2 Apr 1727 in Reinheim, Hesse, Germany), died 10 May 1736 in Reinheim, Hesse, Germany.
  2. probably Jost Burkhard Rainer, born about 1658, married Anna Benina Quint (b. abt. 1656, d. 15 Nov 1724 in Nieder-Modau, Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hesse, Germany) in 1683, died 3 Aug 1731 in Nieder-Modau, Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hesse, Germany, a Lutheran, was the Oberförster (head forester) in Oberhausen, Hesse, Germany in 1685 and in Wembach, Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hesse, Germany in 1705, died after 1723. While Jost Burkhard's connection to Ehrenreich and Anna Katharina is theoretical, it is interesting to note that 1) Jost Burkhard can be found in church records for Nieder-Modau, six miles from Reinheim where Johann Philipp lived, and Groß-Bieberau, two and a half miles from Reinheim, 2) Jost Burkhard is an Oberförster while Ehrenreich is a Forstschreiber, 3) Jost Burkhard's eldest recorded son is named Johann Ehrenreich Rainer, and 4) Johann Philipp named a daughter Maria Magdalena Benigna (could she have been named in honor of Anna Benina?).
  3. Johann Ludwig Rainer, born 12 Mar 1661 in Battenberg, Waldeck-Frankenberg, Hesse, Germany, married Anna Susanna Wehn (b. 18 Apr 1667 in Battenberg, Waldeck-Frankenberg, Hesse, Germany, d. 14 Dec 1714 in Battenberg, Waldeck-Frankenberg, Hesse, Germany) 4 Oct 1687 in Battenberg, Waldeck-Frankenberg, Hesse, Germany, died 12 Mar 1704 in Battenberg, Waldeck-Frankenberg, Hesse, Germany.

Note: "The Gießen family book part 1 (1575 - 1730) by Otto Stumpf was published in three volumes by the Upper Hessian History Association as early as 1976. But these books have long been out of print. For reasons of space, the sponsorship information, which is often so important to clarify the family connections, was also missing. These were here by Marion Wächter, who unfortunately died far too early, with the support of Dr. Brake from the Giessen city archive also added. Some genealogical information on people from the Giessen emigration society has also been incorporated."
