The Kaiser Family

 
 

 

Name Origin: GERMANY, SWITZERLAND, Jewish

Kaiser is a Jewish Ashkenazi name.  It is an ornamental name from the German word "Kaiser" or "Emperor", adopted because of its aristocratic connotations.
Kaiser is also a Muslin name: from the Arabic "gay-sar" or "emperor", which is of Latin orgin from the imperial title in the Roman Empire.
Our nearest Kaiser ancestors were from Switzerland.
 
In the US, the states with the largest number of Kaiser families include New York, Ohio and Illinois.
 

 
The Kaiser family line connected to the Reutzel/Rudisil family line when Gertraud Kaiser married Elias Reutzel.  Their daughter, Margarette, married William "The Conestoga Trader" Sherrill connecting the Sherrill family tree.
                                       
The Sherrill family line connected with the Loftin and Johnson family lines when Susannah Sherrill married James Loftin on 27 Dec 1796 and Lavina C. Sherrill married Pinkney C. Johnson about 1848.
