|Birth: ||Jan. 3, 1696|
Hans married Maria Margaretha Buckenmeyer at Waldangelloch, Germany on the 6 Feb 1720. He and his son, Jacob, arrived by ship (St. Andrew) at Philadelphia, PA in October 1738.
Information received from Carl Catherman: "Weyrich's son Hans Jacob is mentioned frequently in the extant records of Christ Lutheran Church but the name Weyrich Kattermann never appears. That does not necessarily mean anything but this congregation was not formed until 1742. Since we don't know when he died it could have been before the cemetery at the church even existed. We do know that he was sick on board the ship when the family arrived in Philadelphia and was not allowed at that time to disembark. I don't know whether he ever disembarked and went to Berks County. Regarding his wife, I don't even know if she survived the voyage across the Atlantic".
According to the the passenger list for the St. Andrew, Hans wife, Maria, was not listed as a passenger.
Hans Weyrich and his wife, Maria Buckenmeyer were my 7th great-grandparents.
