Saulxures, Bas Rhin

Most of the families have been found in Saulxures first by Ted and Wayne with
an in-depth study by Horace. Horace gives his summary here.

This is from the records related to the Seven Families found in Saulxures between 1706 and 1758; later records were not
examined.  They show many intermarriages among these families, as well as other interactions such as godparents, marriage witnesses, and connections to other families. The records previously reported by Ted and Wayne are included for convenient comparisons.

Children of Nicolas Strasbach and Catherine Gerard, a family that was aboard the Princess Augusta, included:
    Anne    b.   19 Dec 1719
    Nicolas        6 Aug 1721
    Jeanne       18 Nov 1723
    Marie        12 Oct 1724
    Barbe        15 Jan 1727
    Marguerite 21 Jun 1729
    Rose           7 Nov 1731
    Jean            3 Aug 1733
    Joseph       19 Aug 1735

Children of  Pierre Delon and Agathe Munier, a family that was aboard the Princess Augusta, included:
    Anne Marie  26 Aug 1725
    Michel          17 Sep 1726
    Pierre             9 Jan 1729
    Jeanne          19 Jul 1733
    Genevieve     30 Nov 1735

Children of Jean Francois Dhretien and Anne Noel, probably the family that was aboard the Princess Augusta, included:
    Catherine    20 Jan 1718 (probably not on P. A.)
         and a child known to have been baptised later in Plaine:
    Marie         19 Sep 1733 (probably on P. A.)

There are two possibilities for families of Nicolas Gerard. It is uncertain whether either was aboard the P. A. These appear to be different Nicolas Gerards.

Children of Nicolas Gerard and Magdelaine Mengin:
    Marie     5 Mar 1707
    Joseph    5 Oct 1716

Children of Nicolas Gerard  and Jeanne Florence:  (possibly the son of the above Nicolas Gerard)
    Jean    22 Jul 1734
       (A Nicolas Gerard died 12 Sep 1736; it is uncertain which.)

Children of Nicolas Ory (pere) and Jeanne Boye':
    Nicolas    (aboard Princess Augusta)
    ?Dominique (perhaps intended voyage, but died 25 Mar 1734)

Children of Nicolas Ory (pere) and Catherine Benoit:  (his second marriage)
    Marie       2 Sep 1712
    Joseph    19 Dec 1713
    Claude    12 Feb 1717
    Reyne      6 Jan 1722
    Jeanne    11 Jun 1723
(Nicolas Ory (pere) died 17 Feb 1741; Jeanne Boye' died 3 May 1710; Catherine Benoit died 11 Mar 1756, age about 80 yrs.)

The burial record for Jeanne Boye' refers to her as "wife of Nicolas Ory."  The marriage record for Nicolas Ory and Catherine Benoit refers to him as "widower of Jeanne Boye' ".  This appears to support the statement in Nicolas Ory (fils)'s will that his parents were Nicolas Ory and Jeanne Boye'.

Dominique Ory (possibly brother of Nicolas Ory (pere), and possibly the brother of Francois Ory of Schirmeck) married 7 Jan 1732 Madelain Caquelin of the parish of Colroy (La Roche).  Nicolas Ory (pere) was a witness. Considering that there were three male Caquelins, and probably additional wives and children, aboard the Princess Augusta, it seems possible that Dominique and
Madelain might have been on the voyage but for his untimely death 25 Mar 1734.

Dominique was godfather to children of Michel Benoit, of Joseph Gerard, and of Nicolas Strasbach, and a witness at the marriage of Marie Gerard, of Toussaint Strasbach, of Nicolas Gerard, and of others in Saulxures. Nicolas Ory was a godfather to one of Dominique Ory's children, and a witness at Dominique's marriage.

Interrelations between the Seven Families and the Benoit family were noteworthy.  Besides many godparent relations, there were several marriages:
    Nicolas Ory and Catherine Benoit
    Nicolas Delon and Marguerite Benoit
    Joseph Gerard and Jeanne Benoit
    Nicolas Noel and Magdelaine Benoit
    Toussaint Strasbach and Jeanne Benoit
    Anne Noel and Sebastien Benoit
(Not all these Benoits were from a single family.)

Perhaps others who have additional information or different insights can provide further interpretation of these records.

I have transcribed my version of the Saulxures records in
Wordperfect 8.0 from the copies that Ted gave me.   The question marks
and blanks are places where  I want to take another look at the film.  I
also intend  to transcribe the St. Stail and Hurbache records when I
find a moment or two.  One item I did note is that one of the Nicolases
in the Hurbache film was born in 1685 and was the son of Jean Strasbach.
Jean Strasbach is listed in the death records for Saulxures, and the
name "Jean" is scratched out in Nicolas' marriage record.  Was Jean
Nicolas' father? Were the Hurbach Jean and Nicolas the same as the
Saulxures Jean and Nicolas?  If they were, the Princess Augusta record
(which otherwise seems remarkably accurate)  would be about 11 years off
in stating Nicolas age.  Also, Nicolas  would have been 33 when he got
married ( which seems late) and 68 when he died in 1753 (which is
possible).

Wayne  Strasbaugh


I also relooked at our Saulxures film  and found
Jean son of Nicholas Gerard and Jeanne florence 22 Juilet 1731
Marriage of Pierre Delon and Agetha Muinier 3 October 1724 0r 1729NICHOLAS STRASBACH MARRIED
CATHERINE GERARD 29 January 1719
I think the bans were listed as being published in Plaine, Wayne knows French better than me and will get copies of these.

Their children:
Ann bap. 19 December 1719 would not be listed as a child on Princess Augusta, and females were not listed.
Nicholas bap. 6 ????1721  would be a child at age 15 on Princess Augusta
Jeanne bap 1723
Marie Sept 1724
Margurtte June 1729
Rose 1732
Jean [John] 1733
Joseph 1734

A Jean Strasbach died in 4 ??? 1724

Also noted in parish a Pierre Delon having at least three children - he is listed on Princess Augusta with 4 children.

Also a few Noels mostly wife or witness.

The Delone and Strasbach families are not listed from 1736 to 1743 where I stopped checkin

BUT for the Ory group who has another Ory line coming over years later there is listing for a
SEBASTIAN ORY in the 1736 1743 time frame.   And others.

Only 6 children are listed as coming with Nicholas the possible list has 8 from the will records can we reconcile the differences.

PRINCESS AUGUSTA LISTS
NICHOLAS STRASBACH WIFE AND SIX CHILDREN

How do we reconcile the differences?

ANN was over 15 born in 1719, adult passengers were considered to be 16 and only male passengers 16 and over were listed. Therefore Ann was not included in the six children.

The only other listing that I know of the children comes from the probate records of Nicholas in York County, the following table is my reconciliation.
 
 
BORN IN FRANCE ON PRINCESS AUGUSTA ON PROBATE RECORD
Anna 1719 Yes Yes. Married Ory
Nicholas Yes Yes
Jeanna - -
Marrie Yes Yes
Margaret Yes Yes, Married Noel
Rose - -
Jean (John) Yes Yes, never married
Joseph Yes Yes, died prior to probate
POSSIBLE NAME OF MATCHES COULD BE BORN IN  YORK, PA -
Judith could have been Jeanne - Yes, Married Heidler
Barbara      b. 15 January 1727 Yes Yes, Married Anthony Hindsman
PROBABLY BORN IN PA - -
Michael circa 1744 No Yes, Married C. Staub
Catherine No yes, married Schoff
Lyena No Yes, Married Gogh

Based on the above analysis two of the children born in France could have had name mis-matches with the baptism records or could have died. Both plausible, children did died of common aliments and the meaning of names could be different in different languages or customs.
The name changes could have been:
Jeanna = Judith
Rose = Barbara

Our line is through Michael, and we have always believed he was born in York, PA, after his parents arrived in Philadelphia.
