JOHANNES

JOHANNES

 

            Links to the Helbron family are through the marriage of Jean Jacques Gerardy and Susanne Johannes.  Their daughter, Catherine, married Johann Baptist Helbron II in 1835. This Johannes family resided in Biringen and supposedly purchased Schloss Helbron after the last Helbron descendant living there died in 1919. Of the other two remaining Helbron brothers, one emigrated to the U.S.; the other relocated to Northern Germany.

 

Based on available records, it appears that there were either two unrelated Johannes families living in the same area or were distant cousins and such a marriage between the two families was permitted. In any event, a marriage occurred between a Peter Johannes and a Margarethe Brettnacher before 1730, probably in Biringen, Saarland, Germany and between a Peter (or Johann Peter) Johannes and a Katharina Grier before 1737, place unknown. The problem here is that available records do not go back far enough in time to verify a connection between these two families. Considerable data have been compiled on other Johannes family descendants, both in Germany and those that emigrated to the U.S., but without more definitive information, no conclusive link can be made between these two Peter Johannes. To further complicate the issue, these given names appear frequently in the Johannes family lineages!

 

            On-line sources indicate that several Johannes families from the Saarland region emigrated to the U.S. prior to 1859. One of the first was Jacob Johannes, son of Nikolaus Johannes and Maria Sievert, of Fitten, Saarland, Germany. Jacob, his wife Margarethe Reiter, and five family members arrived in New Orleans aboard the Aurelius on 28 Dec 1847 from Le Harve. This family settled in Jennings Co., IN. Two brothers and their families from the same region, Peter Johannes and Nikolaus Johannes, emigrated to the U.S. and settled initially in Racine Co., WI. Peter arrived in New York aboard the Catherine on 15 Jun 1847 from Antwerp, Belgium; Nicholas arrived in New York aboard the Progress on 14 May 1859 from Le Harve. Nikolaus’ son, Peter, and his family arrived in New York aboard the South Carolina on 17 May 1854 from Antwerp. Nikolaus’ other son, Nikolaus II, arrived in New York aboard the Dorette on 25 Aug 1854 from Antwerp. Peter and some of his descendants moved to Osceola Co., IA. These emigrant families are possibly linked to those outlined below due to the close proximity of the hometowns identified in certain records, however, no positive link has been determined to-date.
