Descendants of Johann Ernst Dennewitz


13. MARIA DOROTHEA WILHELMINA4 DENNEWITZ (JOHANN GOTTLEIB3, JOHANN GOTTLEIB2, JOHANN ERNST1) was born October 16, 1811 in Hauteroda, Prussia, Germany, and died August 29, 1884 in Chase Co., Kansas. She married JOHANN GOTTLEIB ABICHT July 12, 1837 in Hauteroda, Prussia, son of JOHANN ABICHT and ROSINE MULLER. He was born November 29, 1803 in Hauteroda, Prussia, Germany, and died February 16, 1878 in Ross County, OH.

Notes for M
ARIA DOROTHEA WILHELMINA DENNEWITZ:
From Homer Arresta Dennewitz:

Also known here in America as Dorothea. Hauteroda Lutheran Church Records also show she was christened on October 20, 1811 and her age at the time of her marriage was 26 years of age and the record shows her as the second daughter of Johann Gottlieb Dennewitz.
.......................................................................... ......................................................
Excerpt from a letter written to Linda (Heiser) Weitekamp from Mildred (Seward) Pierce stating........."On February. 24, 1880 the widow of Gotleib Abicht and her children signed a deed on Gotlieb Abicht's land (10 acres) - to John Greenwald. Gotleib Abicht had purchased this 10 acres in 1859 from Gottlieb and Maria Grunewald. (all Ross County). Maria Gruenwald is named wife of Gottlieb Gruenwald. This 10 acres was in Survey #12648 which is very close to Deilerd, Greenewalt, Oyer, Gunther and Denewitz hrs land. The widow of Gotleib Abicht was Dorothea (Dennewitz) daughter of Gottlieb Dennewitz."

"The point of all that - is this - I wonder if Maria Gruenwald (Greenewalt, Greenwald) may have been Maria Dennewitz. Also, the legal description on the February. 14, 1880 deed above mentioned gives the 10 acres tract as adjoining Gottleib Greenwald and C. Denig and Christian Geyer. (Abicht's 1st wife was a Geyer). So----these surnames seem to be all related by marriage."
.......................................................................... ......................................................
Excerpts from a letter written to Linda (Heiser) Weitekamp from Mildred (Seward) date unknown......" Apparently Dorothea (Dennewitz) Abicht left Ohio, at least left Ross County, to live with one of her children or possibly with a sister or brother. I have not been able to find her. Census of 1860 and 1870 shows her birthplace as Prussia. When she came to America with her husband and children, they received a certificate dated 8 March 1852, signed by the Pastor's Office at Hauteroda stating that the children were born and baptized in "this community" - meaning children of Gottlieb and Dorothea (Dennewitz) Abicht were born in Hauteroda. On the ship's passenger list, it shows "usual place of residence" as Kingdom of Prussia. Also, Gottlieb Abicht's declaration to become a citizen of the U. S. shows that he is a native of Prussia."
.......................................................................... ......................................................
Excerpts from a letter written to Linda (Heiser) Weitekamp from Mildred (Seward) Pierce date June 11, 1981......."She was born Oct. 16, 1811 in Hauteroda, Germany and died August 29, 1884 in Chase County, Kansas. She is buried in the Wonsevu Cemetery. She apparently came to Kansas about 1880 with some of her children after her husband had died in Waverly, Ohio or near there. I was unable to find an obituary for her and feel I tried all possible sources except Lutheran Church. Believe the records of the Abicht children's marriages are in the Waverly church. They came to America on the Ship Bremerhaven, arriving at Baltimore, Maryland, 6 May 1852 and went directly to Ohio."

14.

She was born February 28, 1828 in Hauteroda, Prussia, Germany, and died March 22, 1917 in Chillicothe, OH.

Notes for J
OHANN CHRISTIAN DENNEWITZ:
From Homer A. Dennewitz, Jr. --

The 1800-1863 church records in Hauteroda, Germany confirms the birth date of Johann Christian Dennewitz. The 1800-1863 Hauteroda Church Records show a Johann Christian Dennewitz as being the seventh child born to Johann Gottlieb Dennewitz.

(Hannah and John Christian first cousins.)

The Naturalization Records of Ross County Ohio, shows "Christian Dennewitz, a native of Prussia, declared on oath his intention to become a citizen on the United States of America on March 14th 1853". (According to Naturalization Record in Volume 1, page 20.)

1850 census shows a John Dennewitz as son of Andrew Dennewitz. However, in subsequent census years (i.e. 1860, 1870 and 1880), John does not appear and I'm assuming that John and Christian are the same and possibly he should be known as John Christian Dennewitz. His father's first name was John.

He took the ship "Albert," which embarked from Bremen, Germany, on 16 April 1847. It arrived in Baltimore, Maryland, on 22 May 1847, with Capitan Von Prissen in charge of the vessel. (Glenda Coleman also sent me that same information.)

He was a carpenter by trade.

Christian is buried in a small cemetery in Huntington Township, Ross Co., Ohio. The cemetery is located on Roselle Creek Road, about one half mile in and up on the hill, on the left side of the road. The inscription on Christian's tombstone----"In life exemplary loving God and his neighbor--In death triumphant looking unto Jesus."

Buried at Lutheran-Yankee Hill Cemetery, Chillicothe, Ohio

ANNA MARIA DENNEWITZ:
Homer Dennewitz supplied me with this information:

Death certificate shows her date of birth as February 28, 1828, however, her birth record at the Lutheran Church in Hauteroda, Germany, shows her birth date as February 9, 1829.

1900 Ross County census shows Hanna M. & daughter "Lenesia M." living in Huntington Twp., Ross Co., Ohio. Hannah was listed as 72 and a widow.

On September 4, 1913 an Affidavit of Insanity was issued in the State of Ohio, Ross Co., declaring Hannah Dennewitz insane. On September 6, 1913, a subpoena was issued to Drs. W. H. Silbaugh and H. P. Martin, Louise Dennewitz, George Uhrig and Charles Broff for testimony in the inquest of lunacy of Hannah M. Dennewitz. Also a warrant to arrest Hannah M. Dennewitz was issued and executed by the sheriff of Ross County on September 6, 1913. (Note: Homer Dennewitz supplied me with a copy of this paperwork.)

I should look for an obituary for Hanna...

  Notes for LOUISA MARGARETHE DENNEWITZ:
[Homer Dennewitz]

Never married. Buried name "Louisa" M.

Louise never married. She cared for her mother. She is buried in Grandview Cemetery, Chillicothe, Ohio.

It is said that for some reason, during World War 11, she burned all the family history papers. Could it be because they were of Jewish descent???
