My 6th great grandfather is John Augustus born 1736 Germany d 1810 Delaware. He married Elizabeth Springer b 1739 Delaware d 1799 Delaware. Thats it, I have no other information, well I have one of their children, my 5th great grandfather Jacob Augustus I. I got all of the Augustus information I have from The Pigeon Roost Massacre; Collings & Richey families book my grandmother has. This book was published back in the 1960's I think, and only updated last year. Neither of the books has information about John's parents, so I call him my "dead end relative". I do use a couple online genealogy sites, but never take what I find on there for fact until I actually find it in a book or some other type of hard copy record...I've been bit before, but so far everything has been correct.
I decided to try looking for John's information once again, and found it, but this time it contained some other information I hadn't seen before. In a nut shell, the information about John's parents & all of his other ancestors, show royalty. The site stated that John's father was Lewis Augustus b 1707 Germany d 1751 London England. Ok so no big deal...except this Lewis Augustus was also known as Prince of Wales Frederick Ludwig. So I asked my husband - he is from Scotland so he knows a little bit about U.K history :o) - he said that it would have been for a child of royalty who was not going to be king/queen one day to go off and sort of "disown" his family. Not in a hateful way, but basically become a commoner and live a normal life.
So I'm asking if anyone has ANY information on John's parents. Whether it matches what I have or not...you might have the same information and it is true, or you have something else.
Please leave me a message...I don't check every day, but I do check often.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
John August b: 1736 Hanover Germany, d: 1810 New Castle county Delaware, m: Elizabeth Springer b: 1739 New Castle county Delaware, d: 1799 New Castle county Delaware.
I have found some online information stating that John's ancestors are of a royal blood line, but can not find "hard" proof of this. John is my g-g-g-g-g-great grandfather from my maternal grandmother's side. His name is listed in the Pigeon Roost Massacre book that my grandmother has, but the above information is all that is listed.
Any one who has information about John please contact me.
Thank you in advance!
