Place of origin
Wächtersbach, Main-Kinzig-Kreis, Hessen, Germany

Johannes Eberhard and Anna Catharina Bringmann were married on 14 July 1751 in Wächtersbach.  Their son Johannes was baptized on 23 Jan 1754 and their daughter Johanna Sophia was baptized on 31 Aug 1755, both in Wächtersbach.   All four family members arrived in Russia on 8 Aug 1766.  Johannes (the father) must have died during the transport to the villages because Catharina is reported as a widow on the Huck First Settler’s List (Family #42) along with the two children.
