Worner Deichert was a resident of the tiny village of ( Hüttengesäß), Huettengesaess in the parish of Langenselbold, located northeast of Frankfort about 20km, in the " Vogelsberg " region. The old churchbooks at Langenselbold record the marriage of the emigrant Worner as such
" Worner Deichert, son of Hans Deichert of (Hüttengesäß), Huettengesaess, was married on January 16, 1690 to Anna Catharina Ahl, daughter of Valentin Ahl ".
The children of this couple were registered in the registers of Langenselbold prior to their emigration to America in 1709.
In 1709 Werner Deichert, Hunter list # 130, was recorded with wife Anna Catharina Ahl, their children as Johann Peter, Elisabetha, Severinus, Anna Sabina, Anna Margaretha, and Ottilia aboard the ship " James and Elizabeth ". An immigrant named Johann Christian Gerlach, Hunter list # 231, was appointed listmaster and the ship was Captained by Henry Gravener, sailing from London, England on Dec. 24, 1709 and arriving in New York on June 16, 1710
I'm willing to share what information I have and hopefully connect new family members in the process. Any help on this project would be greatly appreciated. Clint Dygert
