Johan Henrich Borgmann b 24 May 1768 in Starten, son of Johan Herm(ann) Borgman and Anna Maria Pulsing became later the owners of the farm Johann Lanvers in Westerholte. He died on 18 Apr 1857 in westerholte and was buried on 21 Apr in Ankum. Johan Lanvers nee Borgmannfarmer of Westerholdt 88 yrs 10 mos 24 days old, cause of death 'old age'
Parents: The "hired man" Johan Herman Borgman and Anna Maria nee Pulsing.
His 2nd wife died on 28 Apr 1867 in westerholte and was buried on 1 May in Ankum. Borgman, Anna Maria Gertrud, farmer's widow of Westerholte. She was 78 yrs 1 mo, 26 days old, cause of death "old age". Parents : Colonus Gerhard Heinrich griese nee Henning of Grovern and Margareta Maria nee Griese.
Heir of the farm was his son Johan Dietrich, born 1 June 1817. He married on 12 Oct 1864,in Ankum, Maria Anna Elisabeth Miethe from Thieme near Alfhausen. She was born 8 Feb 1837 in thieme, the dautghter of the "hirelings' Gerhard Miethe & wife Maria Elisabeth nee Wefeler. On the marriage certificate of Johann Dietrich, his name appears as "Landwehr" nee Borgmann.(It seems that it was common to adopt the name of the place that you inherited or purchased). His daughter Wilhelma Gertrud, the grandmother of Mrs Wilma Wissman of Bersenbruck (I visited them) then keeps the family name of Landwehr at her marriage.
OK folks, that's it!!!!! Hope you excuse any typos and be sure to email me if you should have any questions. Helga did a great job of translating this (altho Margaret speaks English quite well). I attempted to put the umlauts over the appropriate letters but somehow my system wont work e.g. alt plus 0196 for umlaut capital 'A'. I am going to 'save' this just in case, just as i saved griese info. Please let me know if it came thru in good shape.Lou
