Death

The cemetery was moved about 100 yards in order to build a new church and only the ledgible headstones were moved. The headstone is not there and those remains are buried in unmarked graves. The church claims to have the best records of any church outside of Philidelphia but must not have had a plot of just who was buried where.

Note

Per Bob Loghry From His research;

Arrived in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1753 with his brother Johann Friedrich Ochsenreiter aboard the ship \'Patience\'. On his death, he is believed to have taken last communion at the Himmel Lutheran Church on 27 October, 1799.

Note

IMMIGRANT SHIPS..... Information on the "Patience," and what it was like for passengers crossing the Atlantic in the 18th century.

.....Many sailing vessels made annual runs from England to the colonies. Only British ships were permitted to land legally at American ports, prior to the Revolutionary War. German immigrants went from a continental port, usually Rotterdam in the 18th century, to a British port, and took passage across the Atlantic from there. Other vessels made the crossing only once.

.....None of these vessels were very large. The ship Patience, made annual runs to Philadelphia from 1748 to 1753, with the exception of 1752 when she arrived at Annapolis. The Patience was a 200-ton ship, had 8 guns, and a crew of 16. (For comparison, the Cutty Sark, the most famous clipper ship of the 19th century, had a net tonnage of 921 tons, and measured 212' in length, 36' in width, and 21' in depth. Clipper ships carried passengers, but were built for speed and cargo.) In 1748, the Patience carried 122 men over 16 (total passengers not given); in 1749, 137 men, 270 persons; in 1750, 124 men, 266 persons; in 1751, 255 persons; in 1752, 260 persons; in 1753, 108 persons.

.....Immigrant passengers were densely packed, with little space, often with poor food and bad water. Under such conditions, disease was a commonplace. Some captains were considerate and kept to the terms of the contract, but not all. It is worth noting that the total passengers on the Royal Enterprise (1750) were given as 'souls'; more often, passengers were listed as 'Palatines' or 'Foreigners', but sometimes as, 'Freights', as if they were mere cargo.

.....Upon arrival at Philadelphia, males over the age of 16 were taken to the City Hall for the oath of allegiance, then led back to the ship. Those who had their passage money, or could borrow it, were released. The others were consigned to merchants, and announcements were printed in newspapers. Buyers bargained with the passengers for a stated period of service, and paid the merchant the passage money and any other debts. Families were often divided on arrival, as children were 'sold' to pay the family's passage.

.....Passengers who were sick were not allowed to land. If there was infectious disease on board, the ship had to remove, one mile from the port. In 1743, the Assembly at Philadelphia purchased Fisher Island, later named Province Island, its buildings to be used as a hospital. In 1754, 253 persons died there, as recorded in the accounts of one undertaker. Burial expenses were assumed by the merchants to whom the passengers had been consigned.

Note: Local riverside towns have had a fashion over the last 200 years to record the flood levels on the sides of prominent buildings. You can find the flood levels recorded on the corner of the Heimatmuseum Schlosschen, on Vorhofstrasse. Blimey, in 1784 the water would have been over 8 feet above my head!!
