SOURCES: Johan Bernhard's approximate year and probable place of birth were known from the family's listing in the Osnabrueck emigration index. The records for the parish of Gross Hesepe were checked and a baptismal entry for Johan Bernard Heinrich was found there. The children's information was all taken from the book Auswanderungsliste fuer die Pfarrgemeinde Twist in den Jahren 1838 - 1910 nach Amerika but it appears that the youngest child born in 1828 died before the family emigrated. The book list did not include the child Anna Maria born ca 1817 but she was listed in the emigration index and also on the 1839 census in Taos. Marriage and death information was taken from Gus Sexton's WorldConnect database.

SOURCES: Maria Adelheid's approximate year of birth was known from her age on several censuses. Because of her year of birth and her close association with the Wolken-Rolling family, established through godparents of her children, she was identified on the 1839 Hesepertwist census as the Wolken-Rolling daughter Maria Adelheid age 7. Twist records were checked and a corresponding entry found there for Maria Adelheid. Her marriage was at St Francis Xavier parish (to the widowed husband of her sister Maria Gesina) and all her children were baptized at the same parish.
