About Friedrich Wilhelm Adolph Ronneberg, I

Friedrich Wilhelm Adolph Ronneberg I represents the root of one of two USA-Ronneberg branches of German origin: his grand sons Johann(es) Frank Ronneberg (*1912), Gustav(e) Ronneberg, and Friedrich ("Fred") Wilhelm Ronneberg all emigrated from Hamburg, Germany, to the USA before WWII. The other (second) root being mentioned above is represented by Adolph's younger brother August Ronneberg (*1856), who emigrated to the USA probably about 1882.

In this GENi-document, the descendants of Friedrich Adolph Wilhelm Ronneberg I are shown as one of the family branches. This branch was constructed by Bruno Klahn II as the most probable version of the true tree from the information, which he obtained from Thomas Ross JR on August 26, 2008 in Monroe, NC, and from Ashley Ronneberg on July 12, 2009. The tree may still include errors. Therefore, it remains highly desirable to check and potentially revise it, if additional information about Friedrich Wilhelm Adolph Ronneberg should become available.

Friedrich Wilhelm Adolph seems to be the same individual that is quoted as "Friedrich Wilhelm Ludwig Ronneberg" (*10/02/1845 in Münster, +03/19/1884 in Darmstadt) in an army list. There, his military ranks and events are given as follows:

  • 03/01/1866 Diensteintritt beim 1. Westfälischen Infanterie=Regiment Nr. 13
  • 1866 Krieg in Südwest=Deutschland
  • 01/18/1867 zum Infanterie=Regiment Nr. 73 versetzt
  • 04/11/1867 Portepee Fähnrich
  • 08/10/1868 Seconde Lieutnant
  • 1870-1871 Krieg gegen Frankreich (Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse)
  • 08/15/1872 in das 2. Großherzogliche Hessische Infanterie=Regiment (Großherzog) Nr. 116 versetzt
  • 07/24/1875 Premier Lieutnant
  • 09/26/1883 Hauptmann und Kompanie-Chef

Note: According to a letter of Terry Ronneberg to Thomas Ross JR on June 27, 1999, Friedrich Wilhelm Adolph Ronneberg I was the emigrant to the USA. This statement is erroneous. He never emigrated himself, however, his grand sons Johann(es), Gustav(e), and Friedrich ("Fred") Wilhelm Ronneberg did. Johann(es) emigrated in 1932.
