Early life and career

Geissenhainer was born in New York City and attended private schools. He graduated from Columbia College in New York City (master of arts, 1858), and went on to study law at Yale Law School, and New York University (bachelor of arts, 1860). He also attended the University of Berlin. In 1862 he was admitted to the bar, and he commenced practice in New York City. Geissenhainer married Susan Havemeyer Burkhalter, a member of the Havemeyer family.


He was elected as a Democrat to the Fifty-first, Fifty-second and Fifty-third Congresses where he served from March 4, 1889 until March 3, 1895.

He also served as chairman of the Committee on Immigration and Naturalization (Fifty-third Congress), and on the Committee on Naval Affairs (Fifty-third Congress). Geissenhainer was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1894 to the Fifty-fourth Congress. After this, he resumed the practice of law.
