RESEARCHERS: Gus Sexton (Gussexton@aol.com) who has this emigrant in his WorldConnect database.
SOURCES: Anna's parents' names were not on her marriage record at St Francis Xavier parish but her date of birth was on her tombstone. That allowed her to be identified on her family's entry in the book Auswanderungsliste fuer die fruehere Pfarrgemeinde Twist in den Jahren 1838 - 1910 nach Amerika which gave the same date of birth. The same information and place of birth as Gross Hesepe was found in Gus Sexton's WorldConnect database. The birth information was then verified in Gross Hesepe parish records. Information about the children was taken from Gus' database.

SOURCES: Gerhard Herman's parents' names were not on his marriage record at St Francis Xavier parish but his date of birth was on his tombstone.

A sister was thought to have been born in Gross Hesepe so that parish's records were checked and a corresponding birth/baptism entry found there for Gerhard Herman. Information about the child was taken from Gus Sexton's WorldConnect database.
