    A new website and corresponding GED have been posted to the internet. The website contains the 1834 emigration story of two brothers, Christopher Heinrich and Gerhardt Heinrich JURGENS, sons of Eberhard Heinrich JURGENS and wife Katharine Marie Elisabeth MOLLENPAGE-VOSS (nee WILKER) of Belm, Osnabruck, Germany to the City of Richmond, Wayne County, Indiana, USA. 342 descendants have been recorded. We look forward to corresponding with distant relatives and others who may be interested. Research includes information from the Christus Lutheran church and St. Dionysius Catholic church in Belm, and St. John Lutheran church in Richmond, Indiana which these two brothers co-founded. Many of the families of this German immigrant church were from the Osnabruck region.

    THE VOYAGE TO AMERICA

    Christopher Henrich Jurgens emigrated from Osnabruck at the age of 29 to America. He departed Bremen, Germany and arrived in New York on October 14, 1834 on the ship "Brig Vernon". Typically a voyage would have taken 6 weeks, double that if the weather was bad. His name on the ship log was recorded as "Heinrich Furgens." He made the trip with his wife Catharine Ellen Engel Jurgens age 30 . They had no children at that time. Also traveling on this same ship was his elder brother Gerhardt Heinrich Jurgens age 42, wife Catharine Elisabeth age 40, children Catharine Maria age 11, Gerhardt Heinrich age 7, and Marie Elisabeth age 3. The average cost of a fair was about $243 each, with children under 5 traveling at reduced rates or free. Photocopies of the original ship logs for this voyage are shown below. They settled and made their homes in the city of Richmond, Wayne County, Indiana, then a city of about 2,000 residents.
