Husband of (1) Maria Appolonia STEIN[LIN], and (2) Maria Magdalena WALTER
Johann Wendel Georg TRAUT was born 1689 Kleinfischlingen, Südliche Weinstraße (near the free city of Landau), Electoral Palatinate, Holy Roman Empire. "Wentel" married first to Maria Appolonia STEIN[LIN] (1691-1738) in about 1721 and (8) children were born to this union. Shortly after her death, Johann Wendel Georg TRAUT, together with a number of neighbors and friends, resolved to embark for the American Colonies, arriving in Philadelphia 5 Sep 1738 on the ship "Winter Galley" (Strassberger - List #52). "Wentel," then immediately moved his young family inland to near Strasburg, Lancaster, PA where he soon married 2nd to Maria Magdalena WALTER on 23 Jan 1739. Another (8) children were then born to this second union.
Johann Wendel Georg TRAUT is almost certainly buried in this small family graveyard overlooking his farm dating from 1739. His stone has either sunken into the soft soil, or is among the stones that are so weathered that they can no longer be read.
This is a very well-researched line that is perhaps best documented by Geo. E. Trout, 250 Year History Trout Family (Closson Press, Apollo, PA, 1991). Numerous bio-sketches of descendants in this line have been published in various local county histories.
Johann Wendel Georg TRAUT, is documented as "Line #1" in the TROUT-DNA Research Project.
