    1821 Immigration of Martin Scharpentier and family
    Ship Juffruw Johanna to Port of New York
    (arrived 16 October 1821)

    Marten Scharpentier, 45, Boer [Farmer], born Courons [Couranes]
    Maria Werner, 35, born Niederauerbach
    Jacob, 11, born Niederauerbach
    Lourents, 17, born Limbach
    Johan, 1 year 6 months, born Limbach

    note: 2 known sons do not immigrate with the family:
    George Bartholomaus (born 1797)- not listed on ship and marries in Limbach in 1825
    and Johann Daniel (born 1811)- not listed on ship and marries in Limbach in 1842

    Jacob could possibly be an illegitimate son of Margaretha Werner. He does not fit any of the known Scharpentier children and is born before Martin and Margaretha marry in 1814. More research is needed.
