Johannes Peter "John" Pung was born on 5 April 1799 in Rheinbach, Rheinland, Prussia (in present-day Rhein-Sieg-Kreis, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany) to Jakob Pung and Agnes Hei[d]t. He was married to Maria Catherine Schu[e]ller on 16 July 1839 in Langenfeld, Rheinland, Prussia. It is unknown if he had gotten married previously, but according to his immigration record, he came over with a few older children who were most definitely born to a different mother. Nevertheless, John, Catherine, his other children, and their at most two kids together born in Prussia (one of which was Moritz, AKA Martin) left from Le Havre, France on the Passenger Ship Robert Isaac and arrived in New York City on 18 October 1843. They were all living together in Richfield, Washington, Wisconsin, USA from 1850 to 1860, and Moritz and Nicholas were both listed specifically in the 1860 census. John worked as a farmer until he passed away in Richfield on 4 January 1861 at the age of 61 and is buried in Saint Marys Church Cemetery.
