This is not the nicolas you think it is, this nicolas wilhelm erbach is from Koblenz/Ehrenbreitstein and was born in 1799 to adam johan erbach and anna maria catherina josepha and married anna catherine dittmar in st. kastor koblenz in 1823 and had a child wilhelm. Wilhelm married Catherine Schaller and had 1 child anna in germany in 1849, wilhelm and his wife came to america in 1850 on the leila, had 1 child in 1851, and opened an account in immig bank of nyc in summer of 1854 giving family history, 3 months later Nicolas and wife arrive on the webber (sep) with thier granddaughter. Wilhelm and wife must have died between 1854-56 as they never appear in city directory, nicolas appears in city directory in 1856 at same address as wilhelm and wife had listed in immig bank record, in 1860 nicolas and wife and the grandaughter anna appear as well as my great grandfather richard wilhelm erbeck, ancestry.com has the name indexed as ebett, and the census taker wrote the name as ebbett, however the record list the origin as koblenz. You can confirm this is the nicolas who came in 1854 by following year by the city directory (footnote has the city directory for all years), nicolas died between 1863-65 because his wife is shown a widow in city directory in 1865. She died in 1868. The address she gives in 1867 is same address a haas family is found in 1870 (the name listed as nicolas's sponsor on naturalization). The haas families are also found in koblenz church records.
Adam Johan Erbach has a birth record in ehrenbreitstein for a daughter, listing all the children at that date (1802), on was a nicolas minsel erbach and the other was nicolas Wilhelm Erbach (the one in the 1860 nat record).
There are 2 erbach's who ended up in NYC and migrated to lackawanna pa believed to be decendants of children of adam, decendants of valentine and adam johan.
I have the church records for this family and will have the naturalization record in 1860 shortly.
This family in the I1A dna haplogroup.I do believe its possible that your nicolas might be from this line, this nicolas cannot be the one who you assign him to be because these other records say that. This dna line has a rare mutation at DYS385B = 16 that exists in only 2.5% of samples, that if found in your line would be proof that your line is connected with mine.
