Mary, daughter, Aug 1863, Germany, single
SOURCES:

Maria's year of birth and the names of her husband and children were known from the 1870 census. Even though their place of birth was noted as Baden, this was clearly the Ostolthoff family from Suttrup. All names and ages are very close to entries found for them in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika. Maria's date and place of birth, parents' names, husband's name, marriage information and year of emigration were all taken from her entry in that book.

KUETTER, Helena Maria
BORN: Oct 10, 1811, baptized in Lengerich
DIED: Jul 16, 1843 Clinton County, IL, no age - Helena Maria KUETER/SUETER voc ALBERS
PARENTS: Herman Bernard KUETTER
Helena Maria KRUIP (KRUCK on marriage record)
EMIGRATION: 1841
MARRIED: Gerhard Herman HERMES
marriage: Mar 31, 1842, St. Louis, MO
SOURCES: This identification is not 100% certain. Helena Maria's parents' names and her age (30) were on her marriage record at the Old Cathedral. A brief entry was found for Helena Maria in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika which gave her year (1810) and place of birth (Handrup, Lengerich) and year of emigration. The Lengerich parish records were checked and an almost-corresponding entry was found there for Helena Aleid KUITER. This is thought to be a correct identification even though Helena's second given name was different and her mother's surname was slightly different. Any supporting or contradictory evidence for this ID would be welcome. Her death record was at St Boniface parish in Germantown.

SOURCES: Johan Heinrich's parents' names were not on his marriage record at St. Joseph parish but he and his bride were both found on the passenger list of the ship Rebecca which arrived in New Orleans about 10 months before their marriage. Johan Heinrich's approximate year and probable place of birth were known from that passenger list. A corresponding entry was found for him in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika which gave his date and place of birth, parents' names and year of emigration. Although born in Thuine, it seems that Johan Heinrich was working and living in the neighboring parish of Freren at the time of his emigration.
