Justus Lindeman is noted as having arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 25, 1740 on the ship “Loyal Judith” with his two sons Jacob, 18, and Heinrich, 16. Justus himself was 49 years old at this time.

The ship came from Rotterdam, Holland but Justus and his sons were listed as coming from the village of Unkenbach, which is about 50 miles southwest of Frankfurt in the German State of Rheinland-Pfalz.

The Lindemans were part of a large immigration of Germans to Pennsylvania. During the early eighteenth century, thousands of families were forced to leave their homes in the Rhine section of Germany because of political, religious, and economic reasons. Passenger lists of this period show that quite a few of those people embarked on their voyage to America from ports in Holland as did the Linderman’s aboard the Loyal Judith.

From the Rhineland it was easier and closer to get to Rotterdam on the Dutch coast by boat on the Rhine River than to travel overland to German ports. This departure from Dutch ports is the reason those people were called Pennsylvania Dutch, even though they were of German origin.

A Johan Linderman owned 100 acres of land in the Hanover Township of Pennsylvania prior to 1734, and appears to be related to the Justus Lindeman family. If so, he must have preceded the Justus Lindeman family and his reports back to Germany probably encouraged Justus to make the move also.

German church records from Trappe, Pennsylvania in what was then Philadelphia County note that “beyond the Schuykill” on March 10, 1747 Johan Heinrich Lindeman, son of Justus Lindeman, married Anna Margretha Uhlin. A confirmation is recorded on May 7, 1747 for “Susannah Elizabeth Lindermannin, daughter of Justus, age 13 years”. An interesting notation was added that “The father hurried her confirmation as he wanted her to be of his persuasion. She was very weak in her knowledge.” One possible inference is that the Lindermans did not attend church on a regular basis and failed to study the Bible and teach the faith to their children, but still desired that their children be Christians. A third reference in the church records was for the confirmation on Jun 1, 1760 of Justus Lindeman, son of Justus Lindeman, age 17 years. Justus Jr. would have been born three years after the arrival of the Lindeman family in Pennsylvania, and infers that Justus was accompanied by his wife aboard the Loyal Judith or followed him shortly after that.

Justus died at the age of 78 in Pennsylvania. His wife, Anna Elizabeth, apparently joined the families of her children who migrated south, and died at the age of 85 in Greenville, South Carolina. Source: Frank Butcher, April, 2002

My Maternal Eleventh Great Grandfather -Johannes Lindermann, Sr.

My Maternal Eleventh Great Grandfather -Johannes Lindemann, Sr.
Born: 1380 in Eisenach, Thuringen, Deutschland.

Died: before 1480 in Eisenach, Thuringia, Germany.

Married: about 1420 in Eisenach, Thuringia, Germany to unknown.

Child: Johannes Lindemann, Jr. 

Eisenach, Town in Germany. Eisenach is a town in Thuringia, Germany with 42,000 inhabitants, located 50 kilometres west of Erfurt, 70 km southeast of Kassel and 150 km northeast of Frankfurt. Wikipedia

Eisenach, Thuringen, Germany, in 1647

The confident citizens of Eisenach fought against the Wettin’s rule to become a free imperial city between 1306 and 1308, but lost. In the 14th century various crises followed: in 1342, a big fire destroyed nearly all the buildings and the Black Death killed many inhabitants in 1349 and 1393. Since 1406, Eisenach was no longer a Wettin residence, which led to a decline in urban development.

Between 1498 and 1501, the young Martin Luther attended the St. George’s Latin school in Eisenach in preparation for his following studies at the University of Erfurt. In 1521/22 he was hidden by Frederick the Wise at Wartburg castle to protect him from the Imperial ban. In that time, Luther translated the New Testament from Greek into German, in what was an important step both for the German Reformation and the development of a consistent German standard language. Luther referred to Eisenach as ein Pfaffennest (“a clerical backwater”), since during his time there were 300 monks and nuns per 1,000 inhabitants.
