Gebhardt Family Genealogy Forum
I have no additional information than:
The book, "Eighteenth Century Emigrants from German Speaking Lands to North America," list of the jurisdiction of "Meissenheim, 1738: Johannes Bartholmas, Bernhard RAUCH, Gorg Philip GEBHARD, Joh DREHER, of Desloch; Carl NEUMAN, Christoph BERNHARD of Gallach; also Nickel BAUER of Jeckenbach, all seven move to Pennsylvania." It only say's that these seven men left the principality, not, they all left together. In checking the "List of foreigners imported in the ship Glasgow, Walter Sterling, Master, from Rotterdam, Arrived September 9, 1738". Christofr BERNHERD, age 23; Johan Nickel BROWER, age 24; Johannnes BARTELME, age 38; Johannnes DRAYER, age 55; Philip GIBHERT, age 26; Bernherd ROUGH, age 24; Kar NEYMAN, age 17. It is presumed they all journey together, with their spouses. What was the relationship of these seven; Friends, Relatives, or Neighbors? Were they all farmers, or did each have his own special trade? We know that Bernard RAUCH/ROUGH, was the brother-in-law, to George Phillip GEBHART.
Contact me direct if this information is of any help. Bernard K. Gebhart
