The Hans Giegengack ‘major’ Lineage

This branch goes back to the year 1600. Descendants of Hans Giegengack major, who lived in Kleinschmalkalden in Thüringen, still live in Germany and in the USA. The family members in the USA all stem from Johann Martin Giegengack (1825 - 1899). The addition 'major' means: the older or the taller.

The church books (confirmation, marriage, death) in Kleinschmalkalden start from the year 1626, the christening registration from 1640. The name Giegengack can be found frequently, although written in different ways: Giegengack (Hans in 1626), Gigengack (Hans in 1669) and Gigengag or Gigengagk too.
Often we find dialect mutilations of the Christian names like Niklas or Nickel instead of Nikolaus, changes of t and th, g and k, c and k etc.

I. Hans GIEGENGACK ‘major’
Hans Giegengack (also refered to as Hans major and as Hanns Gigengagk) was born around 1600. Confirmation in Kleinschmalkalden, Thüringen, Germany on 6 July 1609 (?). He died in Kleinschmalkalden on 7 July 1669.

Konrad GIEGENGACK
Born in Kleinschmalkalden on 29 June 1847, baptized in Kleinschmalkalden on 4 July 1847. <I>

The eventful voyage of Konrad Giegengack (1863-1864)
Konrad Giegengack left his family and country in 1863, only 17 years old. As the youngest of a group of five young men from Kleinschmalkalden, he went on board of the ship Susanne Godeffroy, heading Australia! He was accompanied by Friedrich Dellit (farmer, 22 years), Christian Dellit (farmer, 24), Wilhelm Eisenacher (farmer, 21) and Christian Reich (farmer, 18), all from Kleinschmalkalden. Konrad is in the passenger list as Conrad Gugengack, farmer, 17 years old.

On the 22nd of September 1863 the ship departed from Hamburg. Two days later it passed Cuxhaven. For most of the passengers, if not for all, it was the last sighting of their homeland.
The voyage had some bad weather conditions. Heavy storms made it a rough trip through the Channel (between England and France). On its way to the Cape of Good Hope (South Africa) it sailed into seas with 'long ridges of water ran high and fast'. Although masts were damaged, nobody got hurt. Seven weeks later (which seems to be something of a record) the Susanne Godeffroy sailed in the Moreton Bay, Queensland, East-Australia, after having rounded Tasmania. On the 17th January 1864 the Susanne Godeffroy arrived in the city of Brisbane. During the dangerous trip one baby was born and eleven children and one adult died. (Source: Bethania Queensland Pioneer List and the Susanne Godeffroy Passenger List.)

We have no knowledge if Konrad has arrived in Australia in 1864. It is not clear what happened to him after he left his homeland. Hopefully we find further information about his life.

UPDATE (June 2012): In a document called Index to Registers of Immigrant Ships' Arrivals 1848-1912, from Queensland State Archives, it is mentioned that a Gugengack, Conrad, 17, arrived in IMM/112 on the 17th January 1864. Further research is needed to find out what happened to Conrad Giegengack.
The document revers to page 138 of microfilms Z1957 and M1696 (source: archives.qld.gov.au).

Some of the families on the Susanne Godeffroy 1863-1864, are among the founders of the community of Bethania, Queensland, situated in the area that was called Kara Kara by the Aboriginal people. (The first of the original founding families came to the colony on the 5th August 1863.) Other passengers of the Susanne Godeffroy settled in the neighbouring communities of Logan/Albert district. The surnames of the five young men from Kleinschmalkalden are not among the twenty-two names of the families that founded Bethania.

The German settlers had left their homeland mainly for economical reasons. Germany during the second quarter of the nineteenth century was full of social, political and religious tensions brought about by a population explosion, the beginnings of industrialization, the emergence of new political ideas and religious conflicts.
The effects of over-population were disastrous. Second sons of farmers found only poorly paid occupations or no work at all, and so the social descent began. Emigration was the only alternative to shifting to the larger towns.
About that time the Queensland Government, through its agents, made it known in Germany that if folks emigrated to the colony, they would be given a free passage and then each family would receive a piece of land. <XXVII>

            Fifth child of Valentin Giegengack, from his second marriage to Anna Katharine Dörfler:
            VII.5
Johann Andreas (Andreas, Andrew) GIEGENGACK
He was born in Kleinschmalkalden on 23 June 1834, baptized in Kleinschmalkalden on 29 June 1834, he died in ... on 29 July 1891.
He married 1) in ... on ... (in or before 1862) to Henrietta ... . She was born in ... on ... about 1832, she died in ... on ... . (Andreas was already married to Henrietta when they arrive in the US in 1862.)
Johann Andreas married 2) in Manhattan on ... 1883 to Karolina BAUM. She was born in ... on ... 1832, she died in ... on 12 November 1899.

Profession: merchant, when he came to the USA in 1862. Before that time they lived in Gena (?) or Jena. See detail of the ship log below.

Johann Andreas was the first Giegengack who immigrated to the USA. He arrived there on September 15 1862, ten years prior to the arrival of Johann Martin Giegengack and his wife, Eva Margrethe Aschenbach. His name then again appears in the New York City Directory in 1869.
Andreas is in the 1870 census with the spelling Andreas Giegengak. In that year he was still married to Henrietta. There were no children in the household. He was living on Avenue A (a German neighborhood).
Carla Johnson has tracked Andreas through the years in the New York City Directories and according to her it seems that he prospered to a great extent. 'He was involved in the retail furnishings, crockery, toys & china business. He also was listed as the proprietor of Giegengack & Company Carriages in 1878-1879.'
'This was in the City Directories for New York City for the years 1878-1879. His business address was 156 Seventh (Ave or Street...it doesn't say which.) In the City Directory for 1876-1877, his brother (our Johann Martin a.k.a. Martin Luther Giegengack) is living with him at 103 Avenue A. Andreas seems to have been 'a jack of all trades' as they say here in the States.'
Later on Carla Johnson went back to the archives, re-searched the census again and she notes that there were two (!) enumerations done in 1870; meaning that they did the census twice in New York City for some unknown reason that year. Carla writes to us: 'In the second enumeration we find Andreas as a plasterer, BUT, in the first enumeration he lists his occupation as 'house furnishings' and the value of his personal estate as $8000. Either the census taker made a mistake about his occupation, or Andreas went from being in the housewares business to being a plasterer and then back to the housewares business again. I think the entry as a plasterer is an error by the census taker. Now Erik, $8000 was a huge amount of money in 1870. I can't imagine how he could have amassed that kind of money. But, if he were as successful as it appears he was, I'm now thinking that perhaps he was a financial backer for the immigration of my great-great grandfather, Martin Giegengack. There were 10 in the family when they left Germany and passage for 10 people must have cost a fair amount of money.'
At the time of the 1880 census Andreas was retired from business and he employs German servants in his household.
'It is apparent from the information in the city directories for New York City and the federal census records, that Andreas came over first', so tells us Carla Johnson. Johann Martin, the older brother of Andreas, went to the USA some years later and is actually found living with Andreas in 1876-1877 in New York City.

We have no information about children of Johann Andreas Giegengack. Carla Johnson: 'Based on the census entries from 1870 and 1880, it's safe to say that he didn't have any children. At least not with this Henrietta. Even if he married her as early as, say 1855, if he had children, they would be living with him in 1870. I suppose if he remarried in 1883 he could have fathered a child, but unless this second wife were considerably younger than he, it's doubtful.'

Johann Andreas war der erste Giegengack, der in die USA einwanderte. Er kam dort am 15 September 1862 an, zehn Jahre vor der Ankunft von Johann Martin Giegengack und seine Frau, Eva Margrethe Aschenbach. Sein Name erscheint dann zum ersten Mal im New York City Directory in 1869.
Andreas ist in der Zählung von 1870 erwähnt mit der Rechtschreibung Andreas Giegengak. In diesem Jahr war er immer noch mit Henrietta verheiratet. Es gab keine Kinder im Haushalt. Er lebte auf Avenue A (eine deutsche Nachbarschaft).
Carla Johnson hat Andreas durch die Jahre in den New York City Directories aufgespürt und ihr scheint es, daß er sehr erfolgreich war. 'Er war tätig in die Ladeneinrichtung, Steingut, in die Spielwaren und in das Porzellanhandel. Auch wurde er als der Eigentümer Giegengack & Company Carriages (Transport) in 1878-1879 verzeichnet.'
'Dies war erwähnt in den City Directories für New York City für die Jahre 1878-1879. Seine Geschäftsadresse war 156 Seventh (Ave oder Street... es gebt nicht an welche.) Im City Directory für 1876-1877, sein Bruder (unser Johann Martin alias Martin Luther Giegengack) lebt mit ihm am 103 Avenue A. Andreas scheint 'mit allen Wassern gewaschen' gewesen zu sein, wie sie hier in den States sagen.'
Später ging Carla Johnson zurück zu den Archiven, erforschte der Census abermals und bemerkte, daß es zwei (!) Zählungen gab in 1870; das bedeutet daß sie in dem Jahr in New York City die Zählung zweimal taten, aus unbekanntem Grund. Carla schreibt uns: 'In die zweite Aufzählung finden wir Andreas als Stuckarbeiter, ABER, in der ersten Aufzählung, gebt er seine Beruf an als 'Hauseinrichtung' und der Wert seines persönlichen Vermögens als $8000. Entweder der Zählungabnehmer machte einen Fehler über seine Beruf, oder Andreas ging vom Sein Haushaltswarehandel zum Stuckarbeiter und dann zurück zu dem Haushaltswarehandel wieder. Ich denke die Eintragung als ein Stuckarbeiter ist ein Fehler von den Zählungabnehmer. Nun Erik, $8000 war eine sehr große Menge Geld in 1870. Ich kann mir nicht vorstellen wie er ein solches Kapital angesammelt haben könnte. Aber, wenn er so erfolgreich war, wie es erscheint, Ich denke jetzt, daß möglicherweise er ein finanzieller Helfer für die Immigration meines UrurGroßvaters Martin Giegengack war. Es gab 10 in der Familie als sie Deutschland verließen und Überfahrt für 10 Leute muß eine bedeutende Summe gekostet haben.'
Zu der Zeit der Zählung 1880 wurde Andreas vom Geschäft zurückgezogen und er beschäftigt deutsche Bedienstete in seinem Haushalt.
'Es ist offensichtlich aus den Informationen in den New York City Directories und die Bundeszählungaufzeichnungen, Andreas kam als erste hinüber', erklärt uns Carla Johnson. Johann Martin, der ältere Bruder von Andreas, ging in die USA einige Jahre später und lebte tatsächlich zusammen mit Andreas in 1876-1877 in New York City.

Wir haben keine Informationen über Kinder von Johann Andreas Giegengack. Carla Johnson: 'Basiert auf den Zählungeintragungen von 1870 und von 1880, darf man annehmen daß er kein Kinder hat. Sicherlich nicht mit diesem Henrietta. Selbst wenn er sie schon in 1855 geheiratetet hätte, wenn er Kinder hatte, würden sie mit ihm zusammen leben in 1870. Ich nehme an, wenn er in 1883 wieder geheiratet hätte, das er Vater eines Kindes gewesen sein könnte, aber, es sei denn diese zweite Frau wäre beträchtlich jünger als er, daß ist zweifelhaft.'
