Emigrants from Lomersheim in Baden-Württemberg

to the Middle Colonies


Modern Germany identification:


Lomersheim, District of Enzkreis, , State of Baden-Württemberg, Bundesrepublik Deutschland
(or Lomersheim, Enzkreis, Baden-Württemberg, Germany)
Postal Code: 75417
Abstracts of the Lomersheim Lutheran records are available via record search on FamilySearch.org. Narrow your search to Film 1187010.
I am not a professional researcher; however, I have 20 years of experience working diligently with Colonial Pennsylvania records. My passion is piecing together early settlers, documenting their origin, settlement, and (if) subsequent migration. My primary area of focus is South Central Pennsylvania (viz., Franklin, Adams, York, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lebanon, Lancaster, and Berks counties).
I have not had opportunity to examine the original Lomersheim church books, which may identify other emigrants to the Middle Colonies. My work on the European side is rather primitive—relying primarily on abstracts available via familysearch.org. The actual church records should provide more information than abstracts placed online—including actual village of residence (some may have resided in satellite towns of Graben) and places of birth of the parents.
Using transcribed records available via familysearch.org databases as well as my own knowledge of Pennsylvania records, I have attempted to document below emigrants from Lomersheim on both sides of the Atlantic.
Please consider my work as a guideline for further research and verification—not as a professional publication. Original records should be consulted.
ADVISEMENT: This file—as of April 2014—is not finished. Several emigrants have not been fully pursued in American records. I welcome any additional information. You may contact me through my website Pennsylvaniasetters.com.

Note: In her work Eighteenth Century Emigrants from the Northern Kraichgau, Annette K. Burgert identified scores of German emigrants to Pennsylvania in the area just north of this map. Many more emigrants are waiting to be found and documented in the villages surrounding Lomersheim.



Lomersheim Emigrants to the Middle Colonies

The Adolph Gerber lists—published by Don Yoder in his compilation Pennsylvania German Immigrants, 1709-1786: Lists Consolidated from Yearbooks of The Pennsylvania German Folklore Society—includes documentation for Lomersheim emigrants either from the Ludwigsburg Protocol (or those who applied for permission to emigrate) or through the Lomersheim pastor looking for evidence of migration in the local church books.


I found evidence of other emigrants via analysis of passenger lists, American church records, and the work of other genealogists. It is quite likely that there are other Eighteenth Century emigrants.

The Federhaff Family

The family of Nicholas Federhaff & his wife Maria Catharina Fegart departed in two waves for America. After Nicholas’s death in 1733, his widow married Johannes Vollmer. In 1750, Johannes Vollmer, his wife, and stepson Balthasar Federhaff arrived at Philadelphia on the Ship Nancy. Three years later, Nicholas and Maria Catharina’s other two child Johann Georg Federhaff arrived at Philadelphia aboard the Ship Patience.


Balthasar and George Federhaff resided briefly in the vicinity of the Borough of Lancaster in Lancaster County before removing to modern-day Lebanon County, Pennsylvania.

GERMAN RECORDS:



Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Hans Federhaff & his wife Barbara had baptized:

  1. Nicholas, born 19 Dec 1704, baptized 20 Dec 1704

Balthass Fegart & his wife Anna Maria, nee Duerrin, had baptized:



  1. Maria Catharina, born 28 Oct 1706, baptized 29 Oct 1706

Nicholas (or Clauss) Federhaff, son of Hans Federhaff, married 10 Nov 1726 Maria Catharina Fegart, daughter of Balthass Fegart. They had baptized:



  1. Johann Georg, born 6 Nov 1727, baptized 7 Nov 1727

  2. Balthasar, born 13 Apr 1729, baptized 14 Apr 1729

  3. Anna Maria, born 25 Oct 1730, baptized 26 Oct 1730

  4. Jacob, born 19 Sep 1732, baptized 20 Sep 1732—died 24 Feb 1735

(Note: Descendants claim that Nicholas Federhaff died 19 Nov 1733 in Lomersheim; however, I don’t see his name in online burial records—but note the marriage below. Perhaps Federhaff’s death was missed during abstraction.)


Note: An Abraham Federhaff, son of Catharine Federhaff, died 30 Aug 1735, aged 4 years, and was buried the following day. Did the transcriber err in regards to either Anna Maria or Abraham? Should this be the same child?—I find no baptism for an Abraham Federhaff, and the pastor always named the father.
Johannes Vollmer, son of Johannes, married 21 Sep 1734 Catharina, the widow of Nicholas Federhaff.[see immigrant Johannes Vollmer in this file for children of this couple]

Jacob Federhaff, son of Hans Jerg Federhaff, married 16 Apr 1720 Agnes Clara Rallen, daughter of Peter Rallen. They had baptized:



  1. Anna Maria, born 3 Aug 1720, baptized 3 Aug 1720

  2. Maria Agnes, born 3 Nov 1721, baptized 4 Nov 1721

  3. Elisabetha, born 26 Dec 1723, baptized 26 Dec 1723—died 10 Feb 1725

  4. Maria Barbara, born 17 Dec 1725, baptized 18 Dec 1725

  5. Ludwig, born 15 Apr 1728, baptized 16 Apr 1728

  6. Anna Maria, born 13 Dec 1731, baptized 14 Dec 1731

  7. Maria Margaretha, born 13 July 1735, baptized 13 July 1735

Hodorous Friderich Haux, son of Joseph Haux, married 15 May 1753 Anna Maria Federhaf, daughter of Hans Jacob Federhaf

1753 Patience, qualified 15 Sep 1753 at Philadelphia:

Note: I am presently uncertain as to the origin of Johan Friederich Federhauf on the 1753 Patience. He only appears on List A—at the very end. I sense that there may have been an error or mistake, as Johan George Federhaff signs List B at that same location—whereas on List A he had appeared earlier.

24 Dec 1808 Balser Federhart, born April 17, 1729 in Wurtemberg. Baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church. Came to this country single. Married 1) to a woman born Sternin; 2) to Mar. Engel Traber, 4 children, of whom 2 still live. This wife died 6 years ago. Since then he is a widower. Died of diarrhea. Aged 79 years, 8 months and 7 days.

Note: I located this abstract online. Other records may be available. This church book is not available to me at the time of this compilation.

Thedorus Friedrich Haux and his wife Anna Maria Federhaff
In the online church abstracts, Anna Maria’s father is identified as Jacob—however, more than a few descendants have placed her as the sister of Lomersheim emigrants Balthasar and Johann Georg Federhaff. The original church book should be consulted for verification.
The Haux family resided in Frederick County, Maryland. I have not pursued this family beyond a cursory search of online records.

GERMAN RECORDS:



Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Hodorous Friderich Haux, son of Joseph Haux, married 15 May 1753 Anna Maria Federhaf, daughter of Hans Jacob Federhaf

The Johannes Vollmer Family

Johannes Vollmer was the stepfather of emigrants Balthasar Federhaff and Johann Georg Federhaff. They all resided briefly in the same vicinity in Lancaster County. Johannes died in 1759; however, I have not identified any estate records. Presumably his widow Catharina resided near her sons who lived in modern-day Lebanon County, Pennsylvania.


I have not fully pursued Johannes Vollmer’s daughters.

GERMAN RECORDS:



Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Johannes Vollmer, son of Johannes, married 21 Sep 1734 Catharina, the widow of Nicholas Federhaff. They had baptized:

  6. Andreas, born 30 Dec 1745, baptized 30 Dec 1745

Note: A child of Johannes Vollmer died 24 Dec 1742, aged 3 years. (Presumably this would have been son Michael above.)

PENNSYLVANIA RECORDS:


Lancaster (Trinity) Lutheran KB, Lancaster, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania:
Johannes Volmar, from Lomersheim in Württemberg, aged 53 years, died August 3, 1759, and was buried in the backwoods on Abraham Kauffman’s place in the usual manner the following day.
Joseph Boger & his wife Susanna had baptized:

  1. Dorothea, born 13 June 1758, baptized 16 July 1758, sp. Friederich Jensel & Dorothea Volmarin

Christian Pfeiffle from Dietersweyler in Württemberg married 16 Oct 1759 Dorothea Volmarin from Lomersheim. They had baptized:



  1. Margaret, born 19 Mar 1762, baptized 25 Apr 1762, sp. Margaret Volmarin, single, and Mathias Strohmenger

Joseph Boger & his wife Susanna Jensel
Joseph Boger and Susanna Jensel married in 1747. Susanna’s father Friederich emigrated to the American Colonies in 1753. One year later Joseph & Susanna followed them. For a time, they all resided in the vicinity of Lancaster Borough in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Information posted by descendants online claim that Joseph migrated to Loudoun County, Virginia, where he died in 1783. However, this man is often identified as “Michael Joseph Boger.” I find no evidence of that name in German or Pennsylvania church records.
