Joseph Wehlage's was mentioned as a brother Bernard Wehlage on Bernard's will and a Bernard Wehlage was a witness at the wedding of this Joseph. Lengerich parish records were checked and a birth baptism entry was found there for Johan Joseph Wehlage whose year of birth corresponded to Joseph's age on censuses and the passenger list and who had the same parents as Bernard, the presumed brother of this Joseph.
