[Spottswood, GED]: From a translation of Monika Rademacher's letter from the Hanau, Germany stadarchiv, edited by Barbara Frost:
"Herman comes (stems) from Nordhausen and stayed there himself, since he wrote from there, from the time of his marriage (until) 1721 when he moved to Ronneburg (in the vicinity of Hanau). Since he comes from there, it is more likely that his children were born in Ronneburg (except, as records show: Anna Maria and Jacob)."
"In the year 1721 the sheepherder (or sheepman) and horn maker (dreher=lathe) Herman Arnd applied for admission among the citizens of Old Town Hanau. At this time he already had four sons. Two of these sons married on February 26, 1733 in the Hanauen Church of Mary." [paragraphs reversed for timeline]

Parish Office Huttengess
Family researcher Dennis Copeland wrote:
"Herman and Margretha's family must have left for Rotterdam within a few months of the weddings. The trip took several weeks down the Rhine and, then, they might have to wait days, weeks, months for passage. According to my sources, the ship passage took two to three months across the Atlantic." (See Sources)
Michael, Conrad, the women and the children are not listed.
Herman immigrated from Germany to American on the ship HOPE of London. With him were his wife, and children: Peter and wife, Michael and wife, Jacob and Anna Maria.
