Johann Gottlieb Lemberger Emigration

 

According to correspondence in the H. H. West book on Lemberger genealogy, the two oldest sons of this family, Tobias Wilhelm Lemberger and Johann Gottlieb Lemberger, Jr., were the first to emigrate from Grunbach to the US, in about 1828 and 1830 respectively. The correspondence further states that the rest of the family followed in 1832, arriving in Baltimore in August (Baltimore ships passenger lists reflect a September arrival, however).

Three documents located in the emigration files of the Schorndorf Oberamt, which as the next higher government headquarters processed emigrations from Grunbach, substantially confirm the foregoing, and add a number of details. It evolves that in addition to Johann Gottlieb Lemberger, Sr., wife Elisabetha Magdalena Hottmann and their five remaining children, there were two others in this party: Anna Maria Hottmann, described as their maid and likely a niece of Elisabetha's, and Johann Friederich Austle? of Schorndorf, described as a hired hand.

1. Memorandum, Jadkreis [not known whether this was really a county as such, but evidently, from other records, it had the special mission of processing emigrations for the Oberamt], Oberamt Schorndorf, 29 April 1832, concerning the emigration of several citizens. Much of the covering memorandum is very difficult to read, but a gist can be derived.

[Gist]
The shipping agent Georg Kuhnle from the Archduchy Baden will in the next days escort a party of 162 persons who want to travel to North America from Heilbronn to Amsterdam, and thence by ship to North America.
The shipping agent Kuhnle asks the minister for the originals of the pertinent certificates to take with him to Amsterdam, apparently as in consequence of a request from Amsterdam, validated in Stuttgart.
[NB: this would explain the lack of the municipal minutes and renunciation of citizenship documents in the Schorndorf files. What follows, an attachment to the memorandum, appears to be an abstract of those documents and contains most of the pertinent details.]
