GEISSENHAINER, Frederick Wilbono, clergyman, born in Mulheim, Germany, 26 June, 1771: died in New York City, 27 May, 1838. In early life he gave evidence of great intellectual precocity, and, having studied at the universities of Giessen and Gottingen, he served for a while as " professor extraordinarius" in the latter institution. So unusual were his attainments that he was ordained when only twenty years old, although five years younger than the age at which candidates were usually allowed to enter the ministry. Emigrating to this country in 1793, he labored for fifteen years in the Groschenhoppen and associated Lutheran Churches in Pennsylvania, and in 1808 removed to New York City as the successor of Dr. Kunze, at the old Swamp Church. He was absent for a time on account of failing health, but returned to New York in 1822, and remained there until his death, he possessed a powerful intellect, which had been brought under the influence of the most thorough culture. Latin and Greek were as: familiar to him as his native tongue. He was made D. D. by the University of Pennsylvania in 1826. His literary remains include lectures on Church history and on the gospels, epistles, and portions of the Old Testament.
