Catharina 9, Margaritha 7, Helena Adelaida 4, Maria Adelaide 2, Maria Angela 1
They were added at the end of list (emigrated in 1840)
SOURCES: Anna Maria's approximate date of birth was known from her age on the passenger list of the ship Johan George and on the Father Helias census. An entry was found for her and her family in the book Auswanderungsliste fuer die fruehere Pfarrgemeinde Twist in den Jahren 1838 - 1910 nach Amerika which gave Anna Maria's parents' names and listed birthdates for all of her children and said Anna Maria was from Lindloh and her husband from Schwartenberg (both in Ruetenbrock parish.) A corresponding birth/baptism record was found for her in that parish. It appears that this Borgmann family either moved away from central MO before 1850 or all members except for daughter Angela died before the census of that year. There is a gap of several years in the Father Helias' death records in the late 1840s so the fate of this family may never be known with certainty.

SOURCES: Maria Anna's parents' names were not on her marriage record at St Boniface parish but her death record at the same parish gave her age (74) and her place of birth as Lingen.

Her birth information and parents' names as noted above were from that entry which also included year of emigration. Confirming this ID is the fact that Stephen Meriens was witness at the Korte-Ess marriage in 1856 and Stephen was married to Anna Maria Ess who had the same Ess-Ruy parents. Information about the children was taken from the 1880 census and the names of beneficieries of Conrad's will.

A more specific place of birth as Versen was noted in a query posted by Gayla Voss regarding Maria Gesina's sister Adelheid. After her birth/bapt record was not found in Meppen parish, Wesuwe parish records were checked and a corresponding birth/bapt entry was found there for Maria Gesina. Information about the children was taken from the 1900 census.
