SOURCES: Anna Maria's parents' names were not on her marriage record at St Ferdinand but her age and parents' names and their ages were on censuses and the passenger list of the ship Diantha. This allowed an entry for her to be identified in in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika which gave her date and place of birth and confirmed her year of emigration. The children's information was taken from the 1880 census - the identity of Rosa, age 20, is not known. Perhaps Herman had a previous marriage.

SOURCES:

Bernard's year and month of birth and year of emgiration 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 exact birth date, place of birth and parents' names. (A correction to the day of birth and mother's maiden name was made by Stefan Hilling after consulting parish records.)
