The Jensel Family

This surname evolved into Yensel, Jentzel, and other variants in Pennsylvania.


Four children of Friederich Jensel and his wife Susanna Eglauss emigrated to America: Johann Friederich, Johann Michael, Susanna (wife of Joseph Boger), and Anna Maria (wife of Michael Rieder). The Jensel family is a classic example of how German church records can prove relationships impossible to discern in American records.

Michael Rieder and his wife Anna Maria Jensel

Michael Rieder of Lancaster Borough and later Lebanon should not be confused with Michael Reider of Cocalico Township, Lancaster County. The latter emigrated from Teustchneureth in 1737.


I could not discern the fate of Michael’s sister Anna Maria, born in 1726. Anna Maria appears neither in Lomersheim marriage records nor burial records. It is possible that she joined her brother Michael on the voyage to America.

Johann Bernhard Wünsch and his wife Barbara Scheible

Members of this immigrant family are buried in the Emmaus Moravian Cemetery. I do not have access to the Emmaus Moravian Church Book.. As the Moravians kept detailed records, a full record of this family along with detailed obituaries may be available.

Hans Jerg Wuest and his wife Anna Maria Scheible

This emigrant is only known through the Adolph Gerber lists. I presume that the Elisabeth Wuestin from Lomersheim whose name appears in a 1772 Philadelphia is his daughter; however, I am not certain.


Anna Maria Scheible had three siblings who emigrated to America. They all settled in the vicinity of Northampton County, Pennsylvania. Perhaps the search for Jerg Wuest should begin there.

GERMAN RECORDS:



Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Adam Wuest & his wife Anna Maria had baptized:

  1. Johann Georg, born 2 Aug 1716, baptized 2 Aug 1716

Jacob Scheible & his wife Agnes had baptized:

Hans Jerg Wuest (or Wuesten), son of Adam Wuest, married 25 Nov 1743 [sic] Anna Maria Scheiblen, daughters of Hans Jacob Scheiblen. They had baptized:

  2. Hans Jerg, born 7 Oct 1744, baptized 8 Oct 1744

  4. Anna Elisabetha born 12 Sep 1747, baptized 12 Sep 1747 “went to the new land”

  5. Maria Agnes, born 22 Oct 1750, baptized 22 Oct 1750

  6. Anna Maria, born 10 Feb 1753, baptized 11 Feb 1753


Note: Hans Jerg Wuest and his wife appear in the Adolph Gerber lists. Also: On the LDS microfilm abstracts, this surname is errantly transcribed as Couest several occasions.

IMMIGRATION:


1754 Bannister, qualified 21 Oct 1754 at Philadelphia:

Jerg Wiest (signed his name)

PENNSYLVANIA RECORDS:
Pennsylvania Staatsbote (newspaper), 28 July 1772: Elisabeth Wuestin from Lomersheim, Wurtemberg is said to be indentured with George McCall in the country near Reading. She is sought by Ernest Ludwig Baisch.

The Brothers Augustinus Gantner, Christian Gantner, and Gottlieb Gantner

I have had difficulty documenting the arrival of these immigrant brothers—not to mention their residence after arrival. I would have expected them to arrive on one of the ships carrying Lomersheim emigrants—but so far I cannot identify them. It is possible that they arrived on a shop that docked at a port other than Philadelphia.

GERMAN RECORDS:

Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Augustinus Gantner & his wife Anna Elisabetha had baptized:


  1. Augustinus, baptized 29 Nov 1696

Augustinus Gantner, son of Augustinus Gantner, married 15 Feb 1718 Catharina Barbara Voller, daughter of Sebastian Voller. They had baptized:



  1. Catharina Barbara, born 4 Dec 1721, baptized 5 Dec 1721

  2. Christianus, born 6 Mar 1725, baptized 7 Mar 1725

  3. Gottlieb, born 3 Nov 1727, baptized 4 Nov 1727

  4. Augustinus, born 31 July 1730, baptized 1 Aug 1730

  5. Friederica Gottliebe, born 22 Feb 1733, baptized 22 Feb 1733

  6. Friederica, born 17 Mar 1735, baptized 18 Mar 1735

  7. Magdalena, born 27 Feb 1738, baptized 28 Feb 1738

Augustinus Gantner & his wife Barbara had baptized:



  1. Johannes, born 28 Apr 1754, baptized 28 Apr 1754

Gottlieb Gandtner, son of Augustin Gandtner, married 2 Feb 1767 Elisabetha, the widow of Adam Wuesten


Note: Did Gottlieb Gantner return to Lomersheim after residing in America? I see no other evidence of a Gottlieb Gantner in this church book.

IMMIGRATION:


Not yet located.
For consideration: An Augustinus Ginther on the 1749 Albany. However, this date does not coincide with the evidence of arrival found below.

Note: According to the Adolph Gerber lists, Anna Ursula Scheible and the children of Johann Michael Scheible had notations next to their baptisms in the Lomersheim church book that they went to the New Land.
--------------------------------------------------------
Balthass Scheible & his wife Maria Magdalena had baptized:

  1. Johanna Barbara, born 27 Dec 1713, baptized 27 Dec 1713

  2. Johann Christoph, born 16 Nov 1715, baptized 16 Nov 1715

Magdalena, wife of Balthas Scheiblens, died 7 Dec 1747, age 57 years


Johann Michael Scheible, son of Balthas Scheible, married 22 Oct 1748 Sabina, the widow of Daniel Federhaf
Note: The age of Michael Scheible, son of Balthas, matches the age of the immigrant Michael Scheible who arrived at Philadelphia on the 1753 Patience—however, other evidence suggests that it was Michael, son of Jacob Scheible, who arrived on that ship. Perhaps both men immigrated. The older Michael disappears from the online church abstracts after January 1748—perhaps he emigrated later that year.

Casper Heppler & his wife Susanna Scheible

Most of the documentation of this couple from the work of the Hepler family researchers. For those interest, please consult the work of Avice Hepler Morgan and Jack Paul cited below.

GERMAN RECORDS:

Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Susanna Scheible, daughter of Johann Jacob Scheible, married 5 Feb 1743 Casper Heppler, son of Casper Heppler

Casper Heppler of Vaihingen, Neckarkreis, Württemberg (located up the Enz River from Lomersheim):
(source below)
“JOHANN CASPAR HEPLER & SUSANNA SCHEIBLE in GERMANY Susanna Scheible, born December 18, 1718. Sponsors at her baptism: Hanns Jerg Boger and Agnes his wife, in place of Samuel Hecker, son of the miller; and Maria Barbara, daughter of Sebastian Schmid. Susanna Scheible was confirmed in the church at Lomersheim in 1733, and on February 5, 1743, married Caspar Heppler, citizen and tailor of Vaihingen , son of Caspar Heppler citizen and tailor of Vaihingen, son of Caspar
Heppler, citizen there and guild master of the tailor trade. Emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1748.

The wedding of Johann Caspar Heppler (Jr.) and Susanna Scheible took place in the ancient church at Lomersheim in 1743. It was duly recorded in the parish register of Vaihingen under the rubric "Nomina Neogramorum" (Name of the Newlyweds) as the wedding of a parishioner in the year 1743. In the entry the pastor describes the groom as "citizen and tailor of this place, legitimate son of Johann Caspar Heppler, citizen and tailor of Vaihingen". The bride was recorded as the "legitimate daughter of Jacob


Scheible, citizen and supervisor of the ducal storehouse in Lomersheim". The banns for the coming wedding had been proclaimed in the church on the first, second and third Sundays after Epithany.

Johann Caspar Hepler b. 10- Jul 1713 d. 1769


Susanna Scheible b. 18- Dec 1718 d. 1757

Children:


Jacob Hepler b. 29- Jun 1744 d. 1808 DU
Christopher Hepler b. 16- Jul 1746 d. 1816 DU
Casper Hepler b. 20- May 1751 d. 27- Dec 1831 PA
George Hepler b. 1755 d. ca. 1783 PA
Michael Hepler b. 2- Jan 1757 d. ? PA

After his mother's death in 1746 and his father's defection, Caspar Hepler Jr., decided to leave for the New World. The first born Jacob, and baby Christopher were born at Vaihingen and set sail with their parents. In his preparation for emigration, he sold his property in Vaihingen. In the deed books preserved in the Vaihingen Town Archives are two deeds dated in April 1748.”

Johannes Schuster

According to the Adolph Gerber lists, Johannes Schuster—a 65-year-old Lomersheim man—applied for manumission in 1754. His daughter Barbara (perhaps his only surviving child) left for America with her husband Michael Jensel in 1750. His safe arrival at Philadelphia is notable in that few men of his advanced age undertook such an arduous journey.


Unfortunately, I have yet to find evidence of him in Pennsylvania records. Presumably he would have joined his daughter in Lancaster County.

GERMAN RECORDS:



Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Martin Schuster & his wife Agnes had baptized:

  1. Johannes, born 13 June 1688, baptized 13 June 1688

Johannes Schuster, son of Martin Schuster, married 22 Oct 1715 Elisabeth Zundel, daughter of Johann Zundel. They had baptized:



  1. Maria Barbara, born 13 Oct 1717, baptized 13 Oct 1717

  2. Hans Jerg, born 19 Nov 1722, baptized 19 Nov 1722


Note: A Hans Jerg Schuster died 5 Oct 1726, aged 5 years. His father was named as Hans Jerg Schuster. Might the father’s name be an error and this is the son of Johannes? I see no evidence of another Hans Jerg Schuster having children within this time period.
Barbara Schuster, daughter of Hans Schuster, married 16 Nov 1745 Michael Jensel, son of Friederich Jensel

Note: Johannes Schuster appears in the Adolph Gerber lists.

IMMIGRATION:


1754 Peggy, qualified 16 Oct 1754 at Philadelphia:

John (X) Schuster

PENNSYLVANIA RECORDS:


Not found. Presumably Johannes would have moved to the vicinity of his daughter Barbara, the wife of Michael Jensel.
