  • Notes 
    • Both Henry Sr. and Elizabeth appear to have been descendants of immigrants to the "Germanna Colony" in Virginia
    • An article in Pennsylvania Folklife includes a scan of the original entry along with a translation of a list in Church records in German recording persons leaving for Georgia. There is no record of their arrival, only of their intention to depart.

      The emigrants from the Freudenberg Parish in the year 1738 were listed in the Burial Register of the Parish by the pastor. Otto Bäumer published the material in the periodical ?Heimatland: Beilage zur Siegener Zeitung?, in 1927. Don Yoder translated the article and published it in Pennsylvania Folklife, Winter 1969-70, Vol. XIX, No.2, p.46

      "As information I wished to write down on these pages that today, the 13th of March, 1738, there left for Georgia, the new island under the protection of His Majesty the King of England, out of this land and parish, with the knowledge and consent of the authorities of this our land, the following named persons, some of them householders with wife and children, others single male persons, namely:
