Floyd Howes in his "Nauman-Norman Family History" writes the following, "I QUOTE from correspondence with Norman W. Nauman in a letter received this past March 13, 1965. ’I have heard my great grandfather, Peter Nauman, say that the three BROTHERS that came to Philadelphia in the fall of 1750 were: JOHANNES GOTTLIEB NAUMAN, he was married and had 3 sons, JOHANNES NAUMAN, probably married, and JOHN CHRISTAIN NAUMAN, yet unmarried. In the spring of 1751 John, or in German, Johannes Christain Nauman went south and was never heard from again.‘ END OF QUOTE"
Many of us Northampton and Monroe County Naumans are descended from a Johannes Christian Naumann. Norman Nauman lived in the Lancaster area. DOES ANYONE HAVE DOCUMENTATION that shows that Johannes Christian went south? DOES ANYONE HAVE DOCUMENTATION that links the Lancaster area Naumans with the Northampton area Naumans in the eighteenth century?
There were two Christian Naumans in Northampton County in the 1750s. They were probably father and son, but no definitive evidence for that relationship has been found. The elder Christian was born in 1704 in Saxony; the younger Christian appears to have had a sister, Margaretha, who was married JULY 6, 1755 in Lehigh Co., PA at St. Paul's Lutheran Church to Andreas DIEMER. The younger Christian's first child was born in 1766. These dates suggest that Christian and Margaretha were born 1735 to 1745. Were they born in what is now Germany, or were they born in Pennsylvania?
Either one of these Christians could have arrived in 1750.
CAN ANYONE PROVIDE INFORMATION about the origins and arrivals of these two Christian Naumans?
