Steussy Family Tree

Steussy_family_tree Click on the above image for a full size view. This is the Steussy family tree based on our gatherings this Thanksgiving weekend. More photos and information later.

The tree starts with Melchoir Steussy (1823-1897) for a good reason. When he immigrated in 1845, the immigration officials misspelled his last name of Stüssi. Everyone alive with the last name Steussy, with that particular spelling, is a descendant of Melchoir and one of his ten children. Our oldest photos (located here) show Henry Steussy, his ninth child and my great-grandfather.

I fully expect there are many errors here. Please send corrections to me at ed “at”

    I am completing the geneaology for Alvin David Steussy, my grandfather. He is the son of Samuel Steussy (brother to your great grandfather Henry Steussy), who is the son of Melchoir Steussy. I have acquired a good bit of information about our family branch. Have been scanning our Alvin David Steussy geneaology book for all the relatives and placing it on a CD. Almost finished.

    Samuel Steussy was born in New Glarus, WI, but moved to LuVerne, IA. Alvin David Steussy moved from LuVerne, IA to Foxhome, MN, then Fergus Falls, Minnesota, and had several children (one was my dad).

    Excellent! Please send the scan here as well. With your permission, I’d like to post portions/all of it here.

    From your immigrant ancestor, Melchior (1823-1897)*, our closest common ancestor is his patrilineal g-g-grandparents Johannes (1690-1753) and wife Barbara Aebli (1686-1737). However, our common patrilineal ancestor is actually his father. I’ll be updating my data with the information from your tree graph soon.

    * – As of this posting, your ancestor shows at my sites on this page:
    (What I have is also a work in progress. Precise URLs are subject to change when my data is re-sorted.)

    My line changed our spelling from Stussi to Stussy about 1905 to make it appear “more American.” However, I have not been able to find any legal document that confirms this – so it might simply have been done without the aid of the courts.
