a. Note:   NI083956
Note:   BERNHARD WANNEMACHER-l was b.c. 1698, Germany, and arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the ship Elizabeth, 30 Oct. 1738, age 40 yrs., repeated and subscribed to the Oaths of Allegiance and Abjuration. Although Rupp listed only a Conrad Wannemacher on the ship, S&H which is acknowledged as a more reliable source listed only Bernhard Wannemacher. (Rupp, p. 129; S&H p. 243). No women or children were named on the lists. He made his way to the area of New Hanover Twp., now Montgomery County, Pennsylvania where both Conrad and Joh. Jacob Wannemacher were settled. The next documented record of Bernhard Wannemacher was the bpt. of a son on 27 Oct. 1745, New Goshenhoppen Church, Upper Hanover Twp., sponsor Jacob Wannemacher. There was a definite and close relationship between Bernhard Wannemacher, b.c. 1698, Conrad Wannemacher, b.c. 1701, and Joh. Jacob Wannemacher, b.c. 1705-7 who first settled within a few miles of each other. They and their children stood as sponsors for each other's children at baptisms. Although proof is lacking, their ages indicate they may have been brothers, or perhaps cousins, but certainly closely related. Bernhard Wannemacher next appeared in 1752 on the first list of taxables, Colebrookda1e Twp., Berks County, just a few miles from Upper Hanover Twp. (Hist. of Berks County, p. 10) In 1758 the tax was 18 pence per b plus 20 shillings per head, and Bernhard's tax was "land10rd half 611. Apparently he was a tenant, not land owner in this grouping which included only 3 or 4 persons. In 1762, he did not appear on the tax lists, but did appear one Casper Boocher, (Bucher) tenant, "1andlord half 10", undoubtedly his son-in-law. (Harrisburg Archives) Undocumented family tradition indicates that Bernhard was married to Anna Lorapin (perhaps Lohr/Lorah). If so, there was a second marriage for Bernhard since his wife was called Catharina at the birth of their son, Joh. Casper. About 1759 or 1760 Bernhard Wannemacher moved to Lynn Twp., Northampton County, Pennsylvania, the area known as Allemange1, where he was taxed 8 b in 1761. Also taxed 8 b was Marx Wannemacher, undoubtedly his eldest son. (Easton Public Library) On 8 Sept. 1762 both Bernhard and Marx Wannemacher of Lynn Twp. were naturalized. (Giuseppi, p. 82) They again were taxed in 1762. The 1766 tax lists for Lynn Twp. showed 123 taxable inhabitants including Bernhard Wannemacher with 21 acres of cleared land plus 68 acres of woodland, and Marx Wannemacher with 25 acres of cleared land plus 75 acres of ~/ood1and. Thirty two farmers paid no tax because their homes had been burned by Indians several years before, and they were exempt from taxation for a time. (Hist. Soc. Pennsylvania, Philadelphia) Bernhard did not appear on the Lynn Twp. tax list of 1772 but Marx and his brother, Jacob, were both listed and we presume that Bernhard Wannemacher died in Lynn Twp., Northampton County, Pennsylvania between 1766 and 1772. No will or adm. of his estate can be found. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
