John Senn husband of Cecilia Hess

  of 533

Several Senn researchers, myself included, have been trying to identify John Senn who married Cecilia Hess and had a large family in Southern Indiana and Louisville, Kentucky. I believe that John Senn is the son of Maria Anna “Agatha” Weindel. Agatha had a son, Johann, born October 28, 1832 in Mechtersheim, Pfalz, Bayern. Agatha was not married and the father is not listed in either the civil birth record or in the baptismal record. Johann was baptized October 30, 1832 in Heiligenstein, Pfalz, Bayern as “Johann Andreas Weindel.”

Agatha married Johann Senn November 15, 1835 at the church in Heiligenstein. The civil record has an added note in the margins mentioning that Johann Senn will be responsible for Agatha’s child Johann who was born October 28, 1832. On June 2, 1846 Johann Senn, a 13 year old son of Johann Senn and Agatha Weindel, was confirmed in the church in Heiligenstein. This is the first record that I have found that specifically has Johann Andreas with the last name Senn. Johann and Agatha immigrated to the United States in 1853, arriving November 28 in New Orleans aboard the “Medora.” Most of Johann and Agatha’s children are listed, but not three of their sons including Johann Andreas.

The 1900 census for Jefferson Co., Kentucky (e.d. 153, Albemarle) lists John Senn with his wife Secelia and two sons Joseph and William. John lists his date of birth as October 1832 and his year of immigration as 1853.

Based on the above I would conclude that John Senn, aka John T. Senn, is Johann Andreas (Weindel) Senn.

I have listed here three generations of ancestors of Johann Andreas for all interested. I have up to eight generations of Johann Andreas’ ancestors which I would be happy to provide.
