SOURCES: Johan Heinrich Joseph's marriage record at St. Joseph's had his parents' names on it which allowed his entry in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika to be identified. It contained his date and place of birth, his parents' names (who also emigrated) and his year of emigration. His child's baptism record in 1850 and his own presumed death record (which only said "husband" and did not give a wife's name nor his own age) were at St. Joseph's parish.
