From "Generation 8" genealogy page:

"Johann Henry Wamboldt was a farmer. He and Anna were married at the St. Johns Anglican Church in Luneburg. Birth and Baptismal records of their children were found in the Dutch Reformed Church Records of Lunenburg and the St. Johns Anglican Church Records of Lunenburg. Johann Henry's death date is recorded in St. Johns Anglican Church Records, Lunenburg."

According to the research of Kenneth Paulsen[1] John Wambolt and Anna Magdalene Croft has the following children;

  • Elizabeth (1817-)
  • John Henry (1819-)
  • John Frederick (1821-)
  • Mary Ann (1823-)
  • John Leonard (1825-)
  • John Gottlieb (1827-)
  • Benjamin (1829-)
  • Sarah Ann (1831-)
  • John Nicholas (1833-1909)

There is however, no record of George Solomon Wambolt (born 1839) in Paulsen's research. There are a few possibilities, he could be the son of John and Anna, he could be John Henry's illegitimate son, or he could have been adopted by the family.

Regardless on the census in 1871 Annie (82) appears as a widow in the household of her eldest son Henry (55) with his wife Ann (50) and their children; Benjamin (23), Leonard (21), Christian (18), Edmond (16), Henry (14), Isabell (12), Solomon (10), Elias (8), Celina (6), Freeman (4) and Caleb (2).[2] Just before Henry on the census is Solomon Wambolt (32), with a wife a children, who was talked about above.

Research Notes

We had December 19, 1815 as his death date. That is what appears in the page attached. But it is also his marriage date. John's children were born in the 1820s, e.g. as transcribed on his son's Leonard's marriage certificate, the father is John Wambold, mother is Ann. I'm removing the death date.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with John by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with John:
