The Family of Johann Lehn

Research by Henry A. Fischer

October 2007

Johann Lehn

Born 06.10.1898 Nagy Ag, Baranya County, Hungary

Parents: Georg Lehn and Klara Grünwald

 

His Father:

Johann Georg Lehn

Born 09.01.1860 in Zsibrik, Tolna County, Hungary

Parents: Johann Georg Lehn and Anna Maria Hoffmann

Married: Anna Maria Rull 4 1 1881 in Zsbrik, Tolna

Married: Klara Grünwald 29.01.1881 Nagy Ag, Baranya County, Hungary

 

His Grandfather:

Johann Georg Lehn

Born 17.11.1816 Zsibrik, Tolna County, Hungary

Parents: Philipp Lehn and Maria Catharina Jäger

Married: Anna Maria Hoffmann 16.04.1850 Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

 

His Great Grandfather:

Philipp Lehn

Born 22.03.1796 Zsibrik, Tolna County, Hungary

Parents: Peter Lehn and Magdalena Müller

Married: Maria Catharina Jäger 16.01.1816 Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

Died: 10.01.1835 Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

 

His 2nd Great Grandfather:

Peter Lehn

Married: Magdalena Müller

 

The birth of some of their children can be found in the church records at the Lutheran Church in Batáapáti but the earlier entries for the Lutheran families living in Zsibrik are scattered throughout the area. The settlers in Zsibrik had originally settled in Cikó. This settlement took place in 1720 and consisted primarily of German Roman Catholics as well as thirty Lutheran Hessian families. The Lutherans formed a congregation and were served by a teacher who also led their worship life. When the bishop of Pécs ordered their conversion later in the late 1720s they abandoned Cikó and some of the families settled in nearby Zsibrik while others went on to settle in Gyönk. Although the Lutherans in Zsibrik were placed under the jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic priest in Bonyhad many of them still sought the pastoral services of Lutheran clergy in the area in congregations that were allowed to function or had an "underground" pastor. I have been unable to "patch" the rest of the Lehns together because of that but will continue to keep my eyes open whenever check any of the records.

Her 2nd Great Grandfather:

Johann Georg Grünwald

No information on his birth

Married: Anna Elisabeth Enner 05.02.1771 in Mucsfa, Tolna County, Hungary

 

The Grünwalds were Heidebauren from Western Hungary, the descendants of Bavarian and Franconian settlers that Charlemagne had settled along the Danube frontier to ward off invasions from the Slavic and Magyar tribes coming from the east in the 10th century. The first Grünwalds to appear in Tolna County arrived in Bikács in the 1720s others moved into the area in Paks, Györköny and other villages. I could not find the origins of Johann Georg. Mucsfa was originally settled by families from the Odenwald in Hesse.

There were numerous other März families in Tolna County where the families who settled in Tékes came from but I could not make a definite connection anywhere and there were no clues in the church records. The März family was from Hesse.

(Married Philip Lehn)

Maria Catharina Jäger

Born 22.01.1797 in Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

Parents: Johann Heinrich Jäger and Anna Maria Kern

Elisabeth Naass

Born 23.05.1803 in Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

Parents: Nikolaus Naass and Anna Elisabeth Fink

Married: Heinrich Hoffmann 26.01.1819 in Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

Eva Margaret Niclas

(Married Johann Grünwald)

Eva Margaret Niclas

Born 13.01.1815 in Nagy Ag, Baranya County, Hungary

Parents: Jakob Niclas and Elisabeth Bartz

Married: Johann Grünwald 19.01.1836 in Nagy Ag, Baranya County, Hungary

Died: 08.11.1873 in Nagy Ag, Baranya County, Hungary

 

Her Father:

Jakob Niclas

No information on his birth

Married: Elisabeth Bartz 20.02.1798 in Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

 

At the time of their marriage Jakob Niclas was living in Nagy Ag. Nagy Ag, was settled by Hessian Lutherans from the Tolna villages after 1770. It was a mixed village with Roman Catholic Hungarians. I could not pick up the trail of the family prior to their move to Nagy Ag and their name was also spelled: Nikolaus.

 

Margaret Grünwald

(Married Johann Adam März)

Margaret Grünwald

Born 25.03.1821 in Nagy Ag, Baranya County, Hungary

Parents: Bernhard Grünwald and Barbara Allrutz

Married: Johann Adam März 11.02.1840 in Tékes, Baranya County, Hungary

 

Her Father:

Bernhard Grünwald

Born around 1776

Married: Barbara Allrutz 07.01.1806 in Nagy Ag, Baranya County, Hungary

 

At the time of his marriage his age was listed as 30 years, while his bride was only 17 years old, which indicates that in all probability he was a widower, but outside of that I could not connect him with any of the Grünwalds back in Tolna County and Heideboden in Western Hungary where the family originated. I would not be surprised if there was a relationship between the two Grünwald families in your family tree.

 

Anna Maria Kern

(Married Johann Heinrich Jäger)

Anna Maria Kern

Born 09.10.1778 in Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

Parents: Johann Heinrich Kern and Julianna Rück

Married: Johann Heinrich Jäger 26.01.1796 in Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

Born 29.07.1747 in Kistormás, Tolna County, Hungary

Christina Merz

(Married Johann Jusst Hoffmann)

Christina Merz

Born around 1778 in Töfu, Baranya County, Hungary

Parents: Johann Hartmann Merz and Maria Magdalena Theiss

Married: Johann Jusst Hoffmann 31.01.1797 in Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

Died: 07.08.1851 in Izmény, Tolna County, Hungary

 

Her Father:

Johann Hartmann Merz

No information on his birth

Married: Maria Magdalena Theiss 29.01.1771 in Töfu, Baranya County, Hungary

 

The church records for Töfu are very scattered during the early period as they too were placed under the jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic clergy in the area but they frequently went to the neighbouring legal Lutheran congregations but I found no clues about them anywhere but I will keep an eye out for them. I wonder if Merz and März have a common origin. In some records they are also identified as the Mertz family not to be confused with Fred and Ethel on "I Love Lucy".
