Looking for my other German Roots..

  • Karl/Carl/Charles Weibel b. bet 1729-30 Hammerschmiede Nonnweiler. Married 1756 Nonnweiler to Susanna Mosstetmoher b. 1729 Kaiserlautern, Pfalz, Bayern. Father Nicholas Mosetmoher.Karl and Susanna had the following children: Cathrine Baptized 2 Oct 1762 Nunkirchen; Magdalen (Helena) Baptized 11 Feb 1756 Nonneiler; Henrich Baptized 14 Mar 1759 Nunkirchen. Karl worked the mines while in Germany. Looking for information on him and his family as well as his Parents who are unknown. Karl like with other miners left Germany around 1764 with their families to lie in the colonies. They all worked at Ringwood Manor Iron Mine in ringwood New Jersey. I am only looking for infor in Germany since I have all tother info about him after 1764.

    More info:: It was believed that Johann/Georg Weibel may have been Carl's father. But, there is a dispute from one researcher. They may be related another way.

    The below info indicates were the German Iron Workers may have come from. I am not familiar with Germany and need guidance with this..

    In 1752 Father Farmer, alias Ferdnand Steinmeyerr, a Jesuit from Weissenstein In Wurttemberg, came to Philadelphia. From 1755 he visited his flock of Catholics in New Jersy administering Holy Communion, Baptism and marriages, etc. Father Farmer died in 1786. However his baptismal, matrimonial and other records have been well preserved and published. Names mentioned by Father Farmer were familiar to Walter Petto, who studied the Germans who worked at the early iron mills in the Saarland, the Paltinate, the Mosel and Husruck area, in Alsace and the German -speaking portion of Lorraine, France who set out for New Jersey. Records for these Germans end in Europe in 1765 and begin in New Jersey in 1766. Petto indicates that the immigrants came from the Idarwald, a wooded ridge between the Mosel and Nahe Rivers. Carl Weibel, from Nunkirchen and Johannes May from Langweiler were of interest to my search for the roots were mentioned in his findings.

    Please any guidance and or help will be greatly appreciated. Been searching for Carls family since 2000.

  • Hallo dwyble,
    welcome at this page. I think "...moher" it is ...moser at Germany, at USA many names was write down wrong. Also "Mosstet.." I think it is annother name at Germany. Weibel is a very common name in the southern of Germany and Suisse. It means a subordinate public employer at adminstration or court. ... If the name was wrote down wrong, than you can't find it...
    However good luck!

  • Rossi: I went to the site and I cannot get it translated. I noticed tht Walter Pertro was on the list. Is that the only kinship book for nonweiler? If not could you tell me the others. I have the info that Petro did on them. Also in order to order I cannot pull up an e mail adresss. The system willl not let me. Can you provide their e mail address so I can correspond with them...Thanks for your help Dave

  • Sorry Dave,
    I did not realise it was in German.
    What is shown there is a reference list of the publications the Society of Local History of Nonnweiler.
    They also sell their publications, the contact details are shown right on top of the page, directly below the headline.
    There is the email link

    Please replace the ||| by the '@'.

    There are actually two kinship books:
    Rudi Jung, Familienbuch von Nonnweiler, 1679-1820.
    -> Kinship book of Nonnweiler from 1679 to 1820 by Rudi Jung

    Helmut Petto, Standesamt Nonnweiler, Ehestandsregister 1821 - 1900
    -> Civil records of Nonnweiler, 1821 - 1900, by Helmut Petto

    The one you are referring to is probably this one:
    Walter Petto, Auswanderer aus dem Amt Nonnweiler
    This is not a kinship book, literally translated it means
    -> Emigrants from the department of Nonnweiler, by Walter Petto
    As there is no price tag next to it, I assume it is sold out.

    Best regards,

  • Rossi:
    Thanks for the book in. Was in contact with and ordered the books. He will send them once he receives the funds.
