Christened Johann Ludwig, but known as J. Ludwig. He was born in Haase Haus in Wunderthausen. He traveled to New York on the ship Lesmona out Bremen, landing on June 24, 1844. He was in the company of his first cousin, Ludwig Dürr and aunt Elisabeth Althaus (Dürr's mother). Their destination was Crawford County, Ohio around Galion. How they traveled there is a matter of speculation but river boats (Erie Canal, Ohio Canal) are a good guess.Their aunt and uncle, Maria (Althaus) and Christian Gerhardt, had settled there with others in the Gerhardt family a decade earlier.

In 1845, his parents, siblings and fiance, Catherine Schneider, left for America as well. J. Ludwig and Catherine remained in Ohio until 1855 when they moved on to the Wheatland, Iowa area. He had been naturalized on November 21, 1854, at Galion. Before the founding of St. Paul's in 1861, he is recorded as a founding member of a German Reformed congregation or community (Gemeinde) in 1857. He farmed in Section 32 of the Liberty township of Clinton County, north of Wheatland and at some remove from his brothers there. In 1881, they moved again to a place north of Glidden, Iowa. At the end of his life he was living with his daughter, Florentine Beckman in Wheatland, but died at a hospital in the county seat of Clinton. J. Ludwig is buried in the Merle Hay (West Lawn) Cemetery at Glidden.

"The History of Clinton County, Iowa" by Lucius P. Allen published in 1879.

I have no confirmed evidence of his existence. If he lived, it is likely that he was born between 1668 and 1673, and died before 1740. He could well have left Wittgenstein.

Born in Kellers Haus in Wunderthausen. He came with his older brother Georg Ludwig aboard the ship Auguste out of Bremen to New Orleans, arriving on October 20, 1854. I can find no further trace of him past the 1860 Census when he lived with the family of John P. Knoche.

Came to America in 1865 from Schmeds/Franzose in Wunderthausen on the ship Hansa out of Bremen. The ship arrived on October 27, 1865 in New York. Indications are that she left Wheatland and was out of touch with the rest of the family.
