I have an ongoing genealogical puzzle. My great-grandmother, Margareth (Margaret) Jenny Blesi, was the daughter of Johann Heinrich Jenny and Eufemia Kubli. It has been passed down orally that she is closely related to other Jenny families in Franklin County, Missouri. Newspaper articles show that the families visited back and forth. When Margaret's oldest daughter was baptized, one of her godmothers was Verona Tschudi Jenny, husband of Johannes Jenny. My question--how are these Jenny families connected?
Clues to this include the fact that after Eufemia Kubli Jenny died, Johann Heinrich Jenny married Esther Tschudi. Esther was the sister of the mother-in-law of Margaret Jenny Blesi--Katharina Tschudi Blesi (husband Peter Blesi). The name of Johann Heinrich Jenny's father is Martin Jenny.
One question that might solve the puzzle: who is the father of Johannes Jenny, husband of Verona Tschudi Jenny, who was born 1816 in Switzerland and died 3 March 1892 in Franklin County, Missouri.
Aren't these Swiss families and their intermarriages complicated? Any help with this, needless to say, would leave me ecstatic. If you need more details, let me know.
