Ancestry of George Coiner
George Coiner is thought to be a brother, or possibly a cousin, of Michael Coiner of early Augusta County, Virginia. George is clearly too old to have been the son of Michael, since he was married and had children born between about 1742-1751, supposedly in the Augusta County area, according to familysearch.org. There is a "Georg Frederich Keinat", born to Hans Michael Keinat and Barbara Heimberger on 8 September 1709 in Mockmuhl, Neckarkreis, Wuerttemberg and married Anna R. Schumacher on 8 November 1739 in Germany (familysearch) that could be this George Coiner (seems to fit datewise), but additional research is needed to make any connection or prove that this is the same George Coiner that migrated to Virginia.
The children of George Coiner children intermarried into several other families in the early Augusta County area (Mowry and Kaiser, among others), possibly located in the Linville's Creek area (more research needed). The wife of George is unknown and since few records exist, it is difficult to positively prove his ancestry or relationship to Michael Coiner (Koiner) who left many records in early Augusta and Shenandoah County, Virginia records. Michael Coiner did name one of his sons George, which seems to indicate that the name was prevalent in the Coiner (Koiner) family. George Coiner may have died prior to 1780 (as listed in familysearch), but additional research is needed to prove if he left a will or if estate records exist to help document his family.
