Peter and Barbara (Laniger) Wirth
Information in the Wirth family goes back to Peter Wirth. His two brothers Jacob and Bernhardt are also mentioned but no descendant lines are known. Peter was born probably around 1820 and died in 1890. Peter married Barbara Laniger and had a total of eleven children: two sons died in infancy and two daughters, Frances and Mary, died of diptheria during childhood.

William P. Wirth
Alexander and Mary (Windy) Plasschaert
Very little is known about the Plasschaert family before 1900. Alexander Plasschaert is the eldest known ancestor. He was born March 2, 1873 and died in 1952. His wife was believed to be Mary Mathilda Windy, born September 3, 1874. They had two sons, Phillip and Charles. The Plasschaert and Wirth trees merge when Charles married Mayme Wirth, a granddaughter of the Peter Wirth mentioned above.
