Brothers Johann George Sieger and Johannes Sieger

The Sieger brothers are documented in the Adolph Gerber lists. Their families are easy to locate in Lomersheim records and each brother is easily identified on ship lists, arriving with other Lomersheim emigrants. However, documentation in Pennsylvania records is presently scant. The surname Sieger begins to appear with regularity in early Northampton County records. The search should begin there.

GERMAN RECORDS:

Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Jacob Sieger & his wife Margaretha had baptized:


  1. Maria Margaretha, born 2 June 1712, baptized 3 June 1712—died 3 July 1712

  1. Christina, born 3 Jan 1748, baptized 4 Jan 1748—died 7 July 1749 (burial record only names a child of Hans Jerg Sieger—I have presumed this child to be Christina)

Barbara Mugler

Barbara Mugler and her illegitimate child—according to the Adolph Gerber lists—departed for the new land. They may have traveled with the 1750 Lomersheim emigrants. I have not been able to locate evidence of Barbara and her child in American records.

GERMAN RECORDS:

Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Ludwig Mugler & his wife Susanna had baptized:


  1. Maria Barbara, born 1 Nov 1732, baptized 2 Nov 1732

Barbara Mueglerin had baptized:



  1. Johann Georg (illegitimate), born 14 Mar 1750, baptized 14 Mar 1750; pastor’s note: “New Land”


Note: Barbara Mugler and her child appear in the Adolph Gerber lists.

IMMIGRATION:


Not found.
A Peter Mugler arrived at Philadelphia aboard the 1751 Shirley; however, a man of this name does not appear in Lomersheim records. Further, I find no other Mugler’s in arrival lists of this time period.

PENNSYLVANIA RECORDS:


Not found.
Melchior Fidler
I have not yet found this emigrant in American records. He is known only through the Adolph Gerber lists.

GERMAN RECORDS:



Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Michael Fidler had baptized:

  1. Melchior, born 1 Nov 1712

Christina Margaretha Fiedler, daughter of Michael Fiedler, married 24 Nov 1727 Jacob Fritsche, son of Hans Jerg Fritsche


Michael Fiedler, widower, married 2 Mar 1734 Regina, the widow of Gottfried Wochelen
Melchior Fidler, son of Michael Fidler, married 17 Nov 1737 Catharina, the widow of Felix Rieder.
Catharina, wife of Melchior Fidlers, died 28 Sep 1747, aged 57 years
Melchior Fidler, son of Michael Fidler, married 14 May 1748 Anna Dingler, daughter of Jacob Dingler. They had baptized:

  1. Johann Jacob, born 4 Feb 1749, baptized 4 Feb 1749

  2. Unnamed Fidler, born 1 Nov 1750—died 1 Nov 1750

  3. Johann Martin, born 9 Nov 1752, baptized 10 Nov 1752; “to Pennsylvania”

--Note: The unnamed child’s father is given as “Michel” but I believe it is an error for Melchior.
Michael Fidler died 26 Feb 1753, aged 82 years

Note: Melchior Fidler appears in the Adolph Gerber lists.

IMMIGRATION:


Not located. Found on Adolph Gerber Lists. Disappears from church records. Otherwise, no evidence of migration at this time.

PENNSYLVANIA RECORDS:


As noted in the published Adolph Gerber lists:
Jacob Fiddler taxed in 1779 as a freeman residing in Radnor Township, Chester County.

Jacob Fidler taxed in 1782 as a freeholder in Tyrone Township, York County.



For consideration:
Anna Maria Friedler of Lomersheim allegedly married Andreas Hagenbuch in Berks County.
--I located this claim online without source attribution. At this writing, I have not found evidence of this marriage—although an Andreas Hagenbuch and wife Anna Maria do appear in early Berks County records.
Andreas Berner
Andreas Berner appears to have settled in the vicinity of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. Please see the note under immigration, as his signature was errantly transcribed in Strassburger & Hinke’s Pennsylvania German Pioneers.

GERMAN RECORDS:



Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg
Jacob Berner & his wife Anna Maria had baptized:

  1. Andreas, born 5 Apr 1719, baptized 6 Apr 1719

Michael Boger & his wife Barbara had baptized:



  1. Barbara, born 31 Jan 1724, baptized 1 Feb 1724

Andreas Berner, son of Jacob Berner, married 23 Nov 1745 Barbara, daughter of Michael Boger. They had baptized:



  1. Jacob, born 24 Apr 1747, baptized 25 Apr 1747

  2. Andreas, born 19 June 1748, baptized 19 June 1748; “Pennsylvania”

IMMIGRATION:


1750 Nancy, qualified 31 Aug 1750 at Philadelphia:

Johann Bernhard Wünsch (signed his name)

Johann Georg Sieger (signed his name)

Johan Georg Musse (signed his name)

Michael Rieder (signed his name)

Andreas Berner (signed his name) [see note]

Michel Jensel (signed his name)
Strassburger & Hinke transcribed the name as Andreas Brauer. I have viewed the original: It certainly could be read as Brauer; however, in light of other evidence—particularly Lomersheim emigrants Michael Rieder and Michel Jensel flanking each side—I am confident that those now transcribing the name will surely read Berner as the immigrant’s true signature. (The letters e and n in German script are easily confused.)

PENNSYLVANIA RECORDS:


Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, Tax Records:

Andrew Berner, 1769-1789+


Philadephia Will S332:

Andrew Berner, writ 29 Jan 1813, probated 26 Sept 1814.

Andreas Barner & his wife Anna Elisabeth had baptized:

I have not had opportunity to examine the full church book. The records below were posted by a descendent of the Wentz family online. Note that the Berner surname appears as Bernhard.

Known children of John & Catharine B. Wentz:

Anna Maria Aichele
Anna Maria Aichele and her illegitimate child—according to the Adolph Gerber lists—departed for the new land. They may have traveled with the 1750 Lomersheim emigrants. I have not been able to locate evidence of Anna Maria and her child in American records. Further, I could not locate her in the online Lomersheim abstracts. Her inclusion in this file is based solely on the published Adolph Gerber lists.

GERMAN RECORDS:



Evangelisch, Lomersheim, Neckarkreis, Württemberg

Anna Maria Aichele

Child: Maria Margaretha (illeg.), born 11 Apr 1742 “Pennsylvania”
Note: Anna Maria Aichele appears in the Adolph Gerber lists. Allegedly, the above baptism is in the Lomersheim church book; however, I could not locate it in the online abstracts.

IMMIGRATION:


Uncertain.

PENNSYLVANIA RECORDS:


Not found.
