Immigrant Weinbrenners

This is a large family that needs much more research to determine the connection to the Western Maryland branch.  Johann Christian WEINBRENNER migrated to Washington Co., MD., before the formation of Allegany Co.  Also, Anthony WEINBRENNER is found on the 1790 Census for Washington Co., MD.  Morris WINEBRENNER may have descended from one of these two brothers, though many families did migrate into Allegany Co. from Pennsylvania. With the exception of his listing as an immigrant, in 1752, nothing further has been found on Wolfgang WEINBRENNER.

This page is a brief history of the members who immigrated to America, and settled in Pennsylvania and/or Maryland.

An additional history is presented on the Maryland families. For information on the Maryland branch,  Go to  WINEBRENNER

Information found elsewhere, some disputed:

"Christiana (Catherine) and four of her children* arrived in Philadelphia on September 29, 1753 aboard the ship Snow Rowand.  Her husband Johann died aboard the ship Rowand in route to America (1)** or her husband had presumably died in Germany (2)**, and his name may have been Johann, for each of the three sons had the name Johann preceding his other name. Each dropped the regular use of the name Johann after arrival in America."

Johann Thieß WEINBRENNER made an application to emigrate to America, but apparently died before the family left. Ship's records do not show him boarding, dying on board, or arriving in Pennsylvania.

She had the following children:

Wolfgang Weinbrenner was b. abt. 1729.** (supposed, not proven)

Anthony Weinbrenner was b. abt.1730. ** (supposed, not proven)

*Johann Christian Winebrenner, b. abt.1735 in Baden, Karlsruhe, Germany, d. abt. 17 Nov 1815 [presumptive date from Will probate] Hagerstown, Washington Co, MD

*Johann Peter Weinbrenner, b. 28 Dec 1738 in Baden, Karlsruhe, Germany,  d. 19 Dec 1789 in Hanover, York County, Pennsylvania.   He was buried in Emanuel Reformed Burial Ground, York County, Pennsylvania..

*Johann George Weinbrenner, b. 01 Jun 1742 in Baden, Karlsruhe, Germany,  d.17 Nov 1780 in Hanover, York County, Pennsylviana. He was buried in Emanuel Reformed Church Burial Ground, Hanover, York County, Pennsylvania.

Katrina Weinbrenner,  b.12 Jan 1745, d. abt.1834.

*Anne Gertraut Weinbrenner, b.1752 in Baden, Karlsruhe, Germany, d.1834 in Brothers Valley Twp, Pennsylvania.

*Children accompanying their mother on Snow Rowand.
**Arrived on the Ship Phoenix one year prior, in 1752. No documentation after arrival in the U.S. for Wolfgang. Anthony appears in MD census, one year only. There is nothing to support Anthony or Wolfgang as children.

Johann Christian Winebrenner married Christiana, widow of Jacob Wyand, on 30 Aug 1758 in, York County, Pennsylvania.  Christiana had two children from this marriage, who used the name WEINBRENNER/WINEBRENNER after her marriage to Johann Christian.  She was b.1737, d. abt.1784.  Sometime after 14 January 1772, they left York County Pennsylvania for Maryland.

They had the following children:

John Jacob Winebrenner was born in 1758.

Philip C. Winebrenner was born on 04 Dec 1759. He died on 11 Dec 1841 in Frederick Co., buried in Glade Reform Church cemetery, Walkersville, Frederick Co., MD.

Peter Winebrenner was born about 1763 in or near Hagerstown, Washington County,  Maryland. He died  in 1841 in Frederick County, Maryland.

Christian Winebrenner was born in 1764. He died on 20 Dec 1832.

Anna Catherine Winebrenner was born in 1766.

Johann Peter Winebrenner was born on 09 May 1768.

Sebastian Winebrenner was born in 1769.

Christiana Winebrenner was born about 1781.

He married Ann Maria abt.1785 in Hagerstown, Washington County, Maryland.  Ann Maria was born after 1733. She was prevously married and had at least one child, a daughter named Margaret, who is mentioned in her will as her survivor.

Johann Christian and Ann Marie had no children together.

Listed elsewhere as their children are:

Johannes Weinbrenner born on 13 Aug 1787 and died in Oct 1787 in Hagerstown, Washington Co, MD., (a slight possibility the son of Johann Christian and Ann Maria) and Amelia Winebrenner, born on 22 Sep 1814. She died on 12 Jul 1860. There are records of the baptisms/christenings in Washington Co., with father noted as Christian, perhaps the son of Johann Christian. Johann Christian and Ann Maria would have both been near 80 years old at the time of Amelia's birth, making it highly unlikely they are her parents. Census records for the period (1800-1810) indicate only two adults, one male and one female in the household. Very doubtful they are the parents. Most likely they were Godparents/Sponsors.

Johann Peter Weinbrenner married Anna Barbara Gross, widow of Andras Gross, on 29 Mar 1760 in York County, Pennsylvania. Nine Gross children are referred to.
