    Maria Werner, 35, born Niederauerbach
    Jacob, 11, born Niederauerbach

    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.

    • EMIGRATION: Came to America in 1821 aboard Juffraw Johanna embarking from Amsterdam and arriving New York port 16 Oct 1821.

      Roll 153.

      (Nothing indicates this is our family but ages would indicate that the possibility exists that it could be.)

      NOTE: Martin Scharpentier arrived in America to the port of New York on the ship, Juffraw Johanna, 16 Oct 1821 having left the port of Amsterdam. He came with his wife, Maria Werner, aged 35. He was 45 or 48 (entry blurred) and they came with three sons Johan or John S Carpenter aged 1 year and 6 months. This would indicate he was born in May not Mar 1820 not 1821. The first two sons were listed as Jacob, age 11 and Lorents, age 17 years. Pennsylvania family tradition indicates these last two sons were born of a different and unknown mother.
