Elizabeth 52, Germany
John 18, Herman 13
SOURCES: Elisabeth AHRENS was listed with J B WOLTERS on the ship Ulysses and was the correct age to have been J B WOLTER's wife on the 1838-39 Father Helias Census. The mother's name on all baptism records for children of Johan Bernard WOLTERS was given only as Elisabeth until 1851 when her surname, AHRENS, appeared. Because the passenger list of the Ulysses said she was from Bassum (Borsum), Aschendorf parish records were checked and a corresponding baptismal entry was found there for Elisabeth. The parents' names listed above were taken from that record. The first child, born ca 1836-37, is known from censuses. Children born 1839-45 were found in Father Helias' records. Children born 1847-51 were baptized at St Peter parish.
