Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 15, 1725
Baden-Württemberg, Germany
Death: May 29, 1809
Frederick County
Maryland, USA

John "Jacob" Sr. Dorner (Danner) arrived at Philadelphia 2 Nov 1752 on the ship "Phoenix". He was a son of John Bernard Doerner 1695-1771, master shoemaker and wife Anna Catherine Feaster 1696-1757 who married about 1720 in Ilbesheim, Germany. Jacob married about 1751 in Ilbesheim to Anna Maria Barbara Storm born about 1730 Germany. Known children were: John "Jacob" Jr. born 1752 m. Anna Catherine Biser; Magdalena "Molly" born 1757; Maria Elizabeth m.John Jacob Jr. Biser; John Andrew m. Anna Maria Beckenbaugh; Anna Maria born 1762; and Catherine "Caty" born about 1764. Jacob Sr. was a deacon at Christ Reformed Church in Middletown, MD which leaves little doubt that he was buried there. Along with Dorner, his family is found as Danner, Darner, Derner, Domer, Terner & Turner. Many researchers confuse him with Rev. Jacob Danner, Brethren of Michael. On the same ship with Jacob Dorner was Christian Danner who was "John Christian Sr. Tanner 1712-1784" of Baltimore Co., MD. It appears that John Bernard Doerner may have been a brother to Christian but information about their fathers doesn't quite match. There were indeed several shoemakers in Christian's family. Jacob Dorner also appears to be related to Christian's brother Michael Tanner 1701-1777 whose son-in-law was John Storm.
