    Notes 

    • (1) Fred and Helen (Pfeiffer) DeMien:

      WUERTTEMBERG KINGDOM, Jagst County, Kunzelsau District:

      BIRTH AND BAPTISM CERTIFICATE

      According to the baptismal register was legitimately born on the 18th of January 1810 in Marbach and baptized on the 19th of January, 1810.

      JOHANN CHRISTOPH AUGUSTIN

      to the parents: Augustin Pfeiffer, citizen in Marbach and Maria Margaretha, born Haffner

      Baptismal sponsors: Johann Georg Hohenram, citizen & resident
      Johann Christoph Haffner,
      Johann Bernhard Haffner, Citizen in Kunzelsau

      Dated at Kunzelsau on 6 April, 1839

      [Note: The relationships among the HAFFNERs listed above is unknown to the compiler.]

      (2) According to a family group sheet provided to the compiler by Phyllis (Cline) Stiver, Augustus PFEIFFER received an honorable discharge from "Kaniglich Wierttrubergiskes - 4th Infanterica Regnment" in April 1837, when he was about 27 years of age; and he thereafter lived in PA, OH and IN. If this information is correct, then the earliest U.S. census in which Augustus PFEIFFER could have been listed would probably have been the 1840 census. The compiler has not found Augustus PFEIFFER in either the 1840 and 1850 census. However, Augustus PFEIFFER was in Holmes County, OH on May 4, 1852, when he was married there.

      [Note: The compiler is not an expert on the German language or the Germany army. However, the compiler believes that "Kaniglich" should be "K??niglich" (Royal); "Wierttrubergiskes" could possibly be "W??rttembergisches"; "Infanterica" should be "Infanterie" (Infantry); and "Regnment" should be "Regiment" (the same meaning in German as in English).]

      (3) According to Passenger and Immigration Lists: New York, 1820-1850, Joh. Aug. PFEIFFER, age 36, and Joh. Werner PFEIFFER, age 26, arrived in New York from Bremen, Germany aboard the ship Josephine on July 19, 1844. The compiler does not know whether Joh. Aug. PFEIFFER is "our" Johann Augustus PFEIFFER, or what relationship, if any, there was between Joh. Aug. PFEIFFER and Joh. Werner PFEIFFER. Following is information about Joh. Aug. PFEIFFER and Joh.
