The 5 Immigrant Dunschmanns, Westerwald

Recommended Posts

Yes, I am starting again. I cannot find any information of value at Ancestry.  The site is terrible to use.  The trees are so full of false data I have no idea what to believe or reject. The following 5 Dunschmann men supposedly came to America in the 1700's.  I will build a generational tree for each of them and see if there is any chance to build a long family tree to link to relatives of today.

Johann Peter Dunschmann

Johan Theiss Dunschmann

Michael Dunschmann

Paulus Dunschmann

Johann Gerhard Dunschmann

I believe I have sufficient information to place Johann Theiss Dunschmann in bucks county  I also have his church records showing he was married; or not, but at least had a child by his cousin apparently.  This occurred in Germany before his departure to America.  The son was born and names Adam.  Subsequent records in Pennsylvania indicate that Adam stated he was born in Germany and arrived with his family to Bucks County.  Another interesting note, is that just prior to emigrating, Theiss married another woman in Germany.  Seems his first love passed away and he was left raising Adam on his own, he married a second time and left for America shortly after.  Upon arriving in Pennsylvannia, he settled in Bucks county and there are quite a series of quality tax and land records to show the life there, his children, and their subsequent family expansion and migration to other parts of both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. 

 

So, I think I have determined where one of the 5 men has established himself in the colonies.

I think I have solved much of the riddles for Johannes Peder Dunschman now.  Just a few more things to verify.

      The Spring Slowdown

      04/23/2017

      I think it is a common theme really.  Each year as spring opens and the weather allows a release to the outdoors, the website will see a slowing in information.  That is ok, we really love our gardens as well.  I am also a huge fan of grilling foods.  I am not sure any of that will change in years to come either.   We have also taken a grand step in our field research and spent a week primarily in New Jersey with a few stops in Pennsylvania. It was a grand discovery, and yet, it was overwhelming as well. I have yet to go through all of the information that we uncovered.  And again, we found more holes that need attention.  I jokingly tell my bride that I am "DONE" now that I have linked my American lineage to the initial immigrant from Germany.  It is just a joke, there is always more to do. Thankfully so!   In the coming weeks things will settle and we will once again make some time to get more of our information on line.  Expect a wealth of data surrounding the early Tinsmans in America, maybe in Germany as well.  I will see what I can do.  I will also get more linked information posted for other areas.  Finding so many local resources while we traveled has proven that courthouses and societies are very important places to visit, and even make new friends.   I hope you will find something worth your visit, maybe even something Grand!!!!!
