Johann Hermann Bernard Determan, my husband’s 4th great-grandfather, was born about 1745 in Lower Saxony, Germany. I have no information regarding his parents or any siblings he might have had. On 30 April 1777, he married Anna Gertrude Knoop in Lengerich. He was 32 and since Anna was only 17 it is possible that she was not his first wife.
Their son Johann Wilhelm, who was the subject of my last post, was born 24 August 1778 in Lingen. The only other child I have a record of is Johann Gerard Jakob, who was born 25 July 1780 in Lingen.
Johann Hermann died in Lingen on 19 September 1802 at the age of 57. His wife Anna was just 52 when she died on 30 March 1812, presumably in Lingen.
This marks the end of the Determan line in terms of documentation that I have found on the family.
