Theis - Sensebach, 1700s NY
Posted by: Vickie Elam White (ID *****3184) Date: March 17, 2005 at 08:21:35

Some researchers claim that Johann Philip SENSEBACH and Juliana Catharina PICKERLING (or BICKERLING) had a son named Philip who married Christina THEIS (or TICE) in 1755 in the Brick Reformed Church, Montgomery NY.

I have a few questions about this.

1. Is there any proof that Johann and Julianna really had a son named Philip? Henry Z. Jones, in his book __ More Palatine Families __, doesn't mention him. Has new research led to his discovery?

2. Has anyone seen the actual 1755 marriage record? Were the ages or parentage of the couple listed?

3. Has anyone seen probate records for Johann Philip and/or his supposed son Philip?

The reason I am asking is this -- I am beginning to suspect that this was actually a third marriage for Johann Philip and that Christina was actually Anna Christina (BETZ)THEIS, widow of Johann Christ THEIS. This would mean that Johann Philip SENSEBACH's daughter Anna and her husband Jost Henrich THEIS were step-siblings (perhaps how they met?).

I appreciate any discussion and help with this.
