This is the (somewhat messy) family register of the miller Jung Johannes Eker and his wife Gottliebin Kraut.  As might be predicted, the "young" Johannes' father is the miller Alt Johannes.  Young Johannes is a brother of the other Bürger at that time, Jakob Heinrich whose family is shown elsewhere.  Both of these brothers send two sons to America.

Below is a detail from child #10 whose given names are numbered to indicate an error in entry. This Abraham Wilhelm is Uncle to my GG-Grandfather Abraham William.  (They liked to use the same names a lot!)  Uncle Abe was born in 1816, confirmed in 1830, and went ausgewandert in 1854 at the age of 38.  I do not  think a destination is entered here.  By comparison, with the next emigrant, I think the text and date following the date 1854 refer to some official registration, perhaps a declaration of citizenship change.

Below is the detail for child #12, Philipp Friedrich, born in 1822 and confirmed on schedule in 1836.  I am pretty proud of myself for figuring out that in 1856, at the age of 34, Philipp Friedrich goes nach Nord Amerika ausgewandert.  The next line makes sense to me only as evidence of an official filing elsewhere on 27 Aug 1856. "Calw"er refers to the regional district capital.  I think the next word is Wachenblat.  "Wachen" means "keep watch over or supervise," and a "Blatt" is a page or sheet of paper. (Pretty impressive, don't you think!)

Child #6, Jakob, is my GGG-Grandfather, the father of Abraham Wilhelm and his Newark siblings.  This register sparks my further interest in how the title of miller is passed on.  My Jacob is first called a miller, but then later a Krämer (merchant, peddler, or grocer).  His slightly older brother Gottlieb Friederich becomes an established miller.  But what happened to child #2, Johannes.  The note indicates that he was married (verh.) in Neuenbürg which is 9 km to the east. Did Johannes III become a miller in that village on a substantial stream instead of waiting for his father to become old?  Perhaps it is less surprising that the remaining two younger surviving brothers immigrate.

At the time of my Abraham Wilhelm's birth, Jacob was titled a krämer.  I need to go back and look at the birth records of the older siblings to see when and if Jacob was considered a miller.  I am also interested in how many years into the 19th Century Gottlieb Friederich and his family ramain as millers.  By the 20th Century, they were not.
