Harwick-Bush Immigrant Ancestors


We are a nation of immigrants. Most of us descend from others who came to this land whether by their own volition or against their will. With this in mind, I will be documenting all the known immigrant ancestors for both my family and my spouse’s family. This is ninth installment of this series.


Six lines down and two to go… Next up in my documentation of our families’ immigrant ancestors is the Harwick-Bush branch of my spouse’s kin.

The most recent immigrant ancestors for this line are Johan Georg Herwig, 3rd great-grandfather, born 17 May 1812 in Kassel, Hesse, Germany and his wife Anna Margaret Kippert, 3rd great-grandmother, born 27 Aug 1813 in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

In the next generation are immigrants Irvin Robinson, 4th great-grandfather, born 1762 in Enniskillen, Fermanaugh, Ireland and his wife Catharine Elliott, 4th great-grandmother, born 1773 in Enniskillen, Fermanaugh, Ireland.

The next most recent immigrant ancestors are Daniel Busch, 5th great-grandfather, born 1750 in Büderich, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany and his wife Anna Catherina “Catherine” Baum, 5th great-grandmother, born 17 Jun 1760 in Bayern, Germany. Elizabeth Stuchell, 5th great-grandmother twice over through both of her daughters Mary McHenry Croasmun and their Elizabeth McHenry Timblin, born 15 Feb 1775 in Gütersloh, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, and her parents Johannes “John” Stützel, born 13 Aug 1748 in Breidenbach, Marburg-Biedenkopf, Hesse, Germany and his wife Mary Catharina Lydick, born 1742 in Germany (6th great grandparents twice over through both their daughter Mary McHenry and their daughter Elizabeth McHenry) are the first child-parent immigrant ancestor combos for the Harwick-Bush line. Joining them are Robert Kinkead, 5th great-grandfather, born 18 Oct 1768 in Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland; his wife Mary McClelland, 5th great-grandmother, born about 1780 in Northern Ireland; and his parents David Kinkead, 6th great-grandfather, born 1747 in Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland and Martha Sproul, 6th great-grandmother, born in Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

The previous generation yields these immigrant ancestors: Elizabeth Johnson, 6th great-grandmother, born 1754 in England; Isaac McHenry, born 1734 in Scotland and his wife Jane Smythe, born 3 Feb 1732 in Ayrshire, Scotland (6th great grandparents twice over through both of their granddaughters Mary McHenry Croasmun and their Elizabeth McHenry Timblin).

The parents of Mary Catharina Lydick (mentioned above) were also known immigrants: Johann Andreas Leydig (Lydick), born 1715 in Württemberg, Germany and his wife Elisabetha Hasslerin, born 1719 in Württemberg, Germany (7th great grandparents twice over through both of their granddaughters Mary McHenry Croasmun and their Elizabeth McHenry Timblin).

They are closely followed by Johan Henrich Silvius, 7th great-grandfather, born 1713 in Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany and his wife Anna Margaretta Bates, 7th great-grandmother, born 1713 in Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany are the next know immigrant ancestors, followed by Hugh Mahurin, 8th great-grandfather, born 1655 in Scotland and his wife Mary Campbell, 8th great-grandmother, born 1667 in Scotland.

One generation removed are Robert Crossman, 9th great-grandfather, born 1 Nov 1622 in Devon, England and his father John Crossman, 10th great-grandfather, born 5 Sep 1588 in Somerset, England; Peter Oliver, 9th great-grandfather, born 1609 in Bristol, England and his parents Thomas Oliver, 10th great-grandfather, born 14 Apr 1582 in Bristol, England and Ann Purchase, 10th great-grandmother, born 1585 in London, England; Sarah Newgate (wife of Peter Oliver), 9th great-grandmother, born 23 Sep 1621 in Bristol, England and her father John Newgate, 10th great-grandfather, born 1580 in Suffolk, England.

The final known immigrant ancestors are Joseph Kingsbury, 10th great-grandfather, born 1605 in Boxford, Suffolk, England and his wife Millicent Ames, 10th great-grandmother, born 1611 in Boxford, Suffolk, England; George Soule, 10th great-grandfather, born 9 Feb 1593 in Eckington, Worcestershire, England and his wife Mary Buckett (Beckett), 10th great-grandmother, born 17 Jan 1590 in Worcester, Worcestershire, England.
