RESEARCHERS: Carol Holterhaus (dcholthaus@aol.com) who has this emigrant in her WorldConnect database
Carl Stolwyk (CarlWyk@aol.com)
SOURCES: Anna Adelheid's parents' names were on both of her marriage records, the first at St. Vincent de Paul parish and the second at Sts Peter and Paul parish. Much of the remaining information was taken from Carol Holterhaus' WorldConnect database. Anna's almost-exact birthdate, place of birth as Hannover and her father's name were known from her obit which also gave the name of her husband and the date of their marriage in St. Louis. The approximate year of her emigration was known also from the obit which stated she had emigrated at age 14. From that she and her family were identified on the passenger list of the ship Mata. The records of Werlte parish were searched simply because of the occurance of the name Abeln in that part of Emsland and her baptismal record was found there. The mother's surname was given as Lehe on the baptismal records of Anna Adelheid and her siblings but as Hermes on their marriage records. The mother had been born to Joseph Lee and Anna Hermes so the later switching of of her surname may have had something to do with property ownership.

This emigrant is included on a website for persons with the Abeln surname.
(http://www.casema.net/~abeln/index.htm - listed as Gerardus Henricus Abeln)
SOURCES: Henry's year of birth was known from his age on censuses and it was known that his wife had been baptized in Meppen parish. A baptism record for Henry, however, was not found in that parish even though their marriage had taken place there. An entry was eventually found for Henry on an Abeln website (url above) which gave his exact date and place of birth which was then verified in the Gross Hesepe parish records. The baptismal record for the child born in 1854 was at St. Joseph parish, for the children born 1856-67 at St. Ferdinand, and for the child born in 1870 at Sacred Heart.

MARRIED: Anna Margaret TEDER
marriage: May 23, 1850, St. Louis, MO
SOURCES: Herman's parents' names were on his marriage record at St Joseph parish. On a website for the Abeln family (no longer online it seems) an entry for this emigrant was identified by his parents' names and on it a date and place of birth were given. These parents also had a daughter named Maria Helena born in 1810. Meppen parish records were checked and a corresponding entry was found there for Herman Engelbrink. No US document has been found yet for Herman which gives his age so there is some possibility that there may have been another child named Herman Engelbert born to the same couple but none was listed for them on the website mentioned above. So far, Herman Engelbert and his wife have not been found on record after their marriage in 1850.

SOURCES: Johan Herman's parents' names and his age (28) were on his marriage record at Sts Peter and Paul and were also known from the passenger list of the ship Mata. Werlte parish records were checked because of the occurance of the surname Abeln in that part of Emsland and a corresponding baptismal entry was found there for Johan Herman. The mother's surname was given as Lehe on the baptismal records of Johan Herman and his siblings but as Hermes on their marriage records. The mother had been born to Joseph Lee and Anna Hermes so the later switching of her surname may have had something to do with property ownership.

Maria Catharine was a witness in April of 1846 at the marriage of her sister Tecla to Anton Tonjes. She died a few months later.
SOURCES: Maria Catharine's parents' names were not on her death record at St Vincent de Paul parish but her age was. Several of her siblings who were also living in the same part of St. Louis at that same time had already been identified and Maria Catharine was easily recognized as their sister from her age on the passenger list of the ship Mata. The parish records of Werlte were checked because of the occurance of the name Abeln there and a baptismal entry was found in that parish's records for Maria Catharine. The mother's surname was given as Lehe on the baptismal records of Maria Catharine and her siblings but as Hermes on their marriage records. The mother had been born to Joseph Lee and Anna Hermes so the later switching of of her surname may have had something to do with property ownership.

SOURCES:

This ID is not 100% certain but seems likely because it is an unusual surname.
Herman's month and year of birth were known from the 1900 census and his age at death. The census also noted his year of emigration. That allowed an entry for Herman Bernard to be identified in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika one year later than the birth years estimated from the census and death record. The year of emigration on the Tenfelde entry agreed with that on the census.

This ID is not 100% certain but seems likely because the surname is not common.
Herman's month and year of birth were noted on the 1900 census. That information allowed an entry for him to be identified in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika which supplied date and place of birth and parents' names. Tenfelde's emigration date was 1872 while the 1900 census said he emigrated in 1880.
