Richard Schaefer (rcsthor@aol.com)
SOURCES: Anna Margaretha's birthdate and place of birth as Aschendorf and her parents' names were known to family researchers from records in Slagharen. Her birth record was not found in Aschendorf parish so parish records of Lathen (in Amt Aschendorf) were checked because a brother was thought to have been baptized there. A corresponding birth/baptismal record was found in Lathen for Anna Grethe BEHRENS born in Melstrup. Other information given above came from the web page of Olivia Berndsen or the WorldConnect database of Jean Zacha Kohler.

BERLING

BERLING, Gerhard Herman
BORN: Nov 30, 1810, Ruehle (parish in Meppen)
DIED: Jun 30, 1854, St. Louis, MO, age 41
PARENTS: Anton BERLING
Anna Margaretha BRUENING
EMIGRATION: 1839 - arrived New Orleans Dec 11, 1839 on the ship Kustoff:
Herman BERLING, 29, farmer from Ruhe traveling to St. Louis with 1 chest of clothes and 1 gun
MARRIED: Sophia BORTING (or BUERDING, BUTING, BRUKING, BUSING)
CHILDREN: Johan Anton BERLING born 1850, St. Louis, MO
Margaret Louisa BERLING born 1851, St. Louis, MO; died 1854
Johann Gerhard BERLING born 1854, St. Louis, MO
SOURCES: Herman's age and place of birth were known from the passenger list of the ship Kustoff, and with that information a baptismal entry for him was found in the records of Meppen parish which gave his place of birth and parents' names. His death record was at St. Joseph parish. Herman's wife's name was known from the baptismal records of their chidlren at St. Joseph parish although the child born in 1854 had as his mother's name Anna Marg BRUENICK (Herman's mother's name instead of his wife's name.)

BERLING, Margaretha
BORN: Oct 28, 1816, Ruehle (parish in Meppen)
PARENTS: Anton BERLING
Euphemia Catharine AELKEN
EMIGRATION: 1845 - arrived  New Orleans Jun 23, 1845 on ship Luentin
Marg BERLINK, 28, from Teglingen, emigrated single
MARRIED: Jacob GROTHANS (also CHROSTHANS, GROTHUES)
CHILDREN: Friederich Aloysius GROTHANS born 1848, St. Louis, MO
Anna Catharine GROTHUES born 1851, St. Louis, MO
SOURCES: Margaretha's age and where she was from were found on the passenger list of the ship Luentine so the records of Meppen parish were searched and her birth record was found in that parish although listing her birth in Ruehle instead of Teglingen. Both villages were in the same parish. Her parents' names were taken from that record. This ID is supported by the fact that Herman Berling from Ruehle, who appears to have been a half-brother, was godfather for one of her chidlren and both Margaret and Jacob Chrosthans/Grothues were godparents for children of Herman. Margaretha's husband's name was known from the records of their chidlren baptized at St. Joseph parish.
