Conrad Family

First Generation

Johann Jacob Conrad (1717-1798) was the son of Hans Conrad and Veronica Staub, of Mietesheim, Alsace. He immigrated in 1737 on the ship St. Andrew's Galley together with his brother George, born 1706. By 1741 Jacob was living in Lancaster Co. PA, where he married Maria Catharina Royer (1725-1797), born in Böhl-bei-Landau, Pfalz, daughter of Sebastian Royer and Agnes Flockerth. Jacob purchased land in North Carolina in 1768, but died in Pennsylvania.

Second Generation

Children of Johann Jacob Conrad and Maria Catharina Royer
Jacob Conrad (b. & d. 1742)
Christian Conrad (b. & d. 1743)
Christian Conrad (1744-1800), m. Maria Boeckel (1743-1834) in 1768, came to NC 1769.
Johannes Conrad (1747-1802) m. Catharina Romig (1752-1824) 1777 in NC
Maria Conrad (1749-1751)
Johann Jacob Conrad (1751-1818) m. Catharina Weybrecht (1758-?) 1775 in PA, came to NC after that date
Johann Heinrich Conrad (1753-1754)
Elisabeth Conrad (b. & d. 1755)
Johann Heinrich Conrad (1756-1757)
Joseph Conrad (1759-1822) m. Anna Maria Selitzinger, remained in Pennsylvania
Freidrich Conrad (b. & d. 1761)
Elisabeth Conrad (1763-1767)
Friedrich Conrad (b. & d. 1764)
Gottfried Conrad (1766-1774)

Third Generation

Probable children of Christian Conrad and Maria Boeckel
Maria Catharina Conrad (1772-1830) m. Johann Christian Hauser (1766-?)
John Conrad (1774-1841) m. Catharina Spainhour (1775-1862)
Peter Conrad (1777-1850) m. 1) Maria Magdalena Schumacher? (1781-1818), 2) Catharina Spainhour (1787-1866)
Anna Magdalena Conrad (1782-1863) m. Peter Pfaff (1773-1865)

Christian Conrad came to NC in 1769 and settled on the land his father had purchased the preceding year. Maria Boeckel was originally listed on this page as Boeke. We now think she may be a Boeckel - but who were her parents? And were there other children in this family?

We are not entirely sure that John and Peter Conrad are their sons, but they fit nicely into the sequence of children. Also, Peter named a son Christian.


Children of Johannes Conrad and Catharina Romig
John Conrad (1778-1850) m. 1) Elizabeth Miller (1782-1837), 2) Mrs. Margaret Grimes (abt. 1806-?)
was she the Margaret Harris who married Benjamin Grimes in 1825?
Anna Elisabeth Conrad (1780-1781)
Jacob Conrad (1782-1839). Did he marry Catharina Krause in 1809? and/or Catharina Krieger?
Abraham Conrad (1784-1869) m. Phillipina Christina Loesch (1788-1847)
Isaac Conrad (1790-1832) m. Charity Wolff (1804-1857)


Children of Johann Jacob Conrad and Catharina Weybrecht
Johann Conrad
Jacob Conrad (1779-?)
Daniel Conrad (1783-?)
Leonard Conrad (1787-1865) m. 1) Annie Vest, 2) Rebecca Lash, probably d/o George Lash Jr. and Nancy Wall
Elisabeth Conrad (1789-aft. 1850) m. Martin Leinbach (1791-1848)

Johann Jacob and Catharina married in Pennsylvania in 1775, and probably didn't arrive in NC until 1777.

Fourth Generation

Children of John Conrad and Catharina Spainhour
Solomon Conrad (1804-1845) m. Anna Maria Leinbach (1805-1882). Who were her parents?
Joseph Conrad (1806-1889) m. Catharina Mickey (1804-1879)
Jesse Conrad (1808-1902) m. Nancy S. Leinbach (1808-1893)
Timothy Conrad (1809-1884) m. Mary Holder (1809-1884)
Ephraim Conrad (1811-1900) m. Sarah Delilah Holder, sister of Mary Holder; moved to Iowa, then California
Susannah Rebecca Conrad. (1813-1884) m. Solomon Pfaff (1808-1890)
Jonathan Conrad (1815-1889) m. Louisa Elizabeth Schultz (1827-1901), widow of Christian Thomas Conrad
*Christian Jacob Conrad (?-bef. 1835) m. **Mary Magdalena Phillips (1808-1839); Mary married 2nd Christian Benjamin Pfaff in 1835

*birth order uncertain
** Records at the Moravian Archives in Winston Salem, NC names the mother of Mary Magdalena Phillips as Mary Phillips. The father is not identified. Thanks to Ada McBride for this information.

Information on this family was updated 1/18/01, thanks to Bill Bigham! Thanks also to Phillip Crow, who sent information in January 2003 on Ephraim Conrad's family, and updated the information on Ephraim Conrad's wife in July 2014


Children of Peter Conrad and (maybe) Maria Magdalena Schumacher
Rebecca Conrad (abt. 1811-?) m. Singleton Church
Lydia Conrad (1811-1887) m. Josiah Leinbach (1812-1885)
Christian Thomas Conrad (abt. 1815-1861) m. Louisa Elizabeth Schultz (1827-1901)

Peter's will, dated 1842, refers to "daughter Rebecca's daughter Rebecca". Since Rebecca didn't marry Singleton Church until 1843, and did so as Conrad, this suggests that she may have had a child prior to marriage. In 1850 Rebecca Church age 39 is living with her stepmother Catharina and her brother Christian Thomas Conrad and his wife. There is no child Rebecca living with them.


Children of John Conrad and Elizabeth Miller
John Joseph Conrad (1805-1871) m. 1) Keziah Harding (1805-1838), 2) Elizabeth Stauber (1810-1900)
Frederick Thomas Conrad (1805-1830)
Isaac Conrad (1807-1850) m. Antoinette Malvina Transou (1821-1903)


Children of Abraham Conrad and Phillipina Christina Loesch
Julia Amelia Conrad (1824-1913) m. Beverly Jones (1811-1902), s/o Gabriel Jones and Mary Bryant


Children of Isaac Conrad and Charity Wolff
Catherine Elisabeth Conrad (1824-1878) m. Albert C. Wharton (1816-1868)

Are they also parents of John E. Conrad (1822-1852), buried in the Conrad-Lehman family cemetery in Vienna, Forsyth Co.?


Children of Leonard Conrad and Annie Vest
Joseph G. Conrad (abt. 1808-aft. 1870) m. Nancy Stolz (abt. 1816-aft. 1870). Who were her parents?
Sarah Conrad (1810-1898) m. Nathaniel Ketner (1810-1879)
Isaac D. Conrad (1814-1882) m. Sarah Maria Shamel (1817-1905)
Samuel Conrad; named in his father's will (1865) as deceased, but left heirs
Susan Conrad (1818-1855) m. Nathaniel Hartman (abt. 1812-?)
*Fizy or Fisa W. Conrad (1820-1905) m. George H. Flynt (1818-1893)

*Fizy appears in a Flynt family file as Sophia Elizabeth Conrad, but consistently in census records and Conrad family materials as Fizy or Fisa.

Children of Leonard Conrad and Rebecca Lash
Delphia Conrad (1827-1877) m. Milton Hartman (1821-1870)
John L. Conrad (1832-1862) m. Caroline L. Conrad (1836-1925)
Lucetta Conrad (1833-1873) m. 1) Lewis Hartman (abt. 1825-1865, 2) Joseph Brewer, s/o Henry Brewer and Elizabeth Boeckel
Julia Sybilla Conrad (1835-1902) m. Julius Abraham Transou (1832-1930)
James H. Conrad (abt. 1837-1911) m. Emily L. Gamble (1839-1911), d/o Andrew Gamble
Mary Ann Conrad (abt. 1844-?) m. Jesse Marshall (abt. 1840-?), s/o Tandy Marshall

Information on this family was corrected on December 3, 2000.

The published Forsyth Co. Cemetery records give James H. Conrad's birthdate as 26 Mar 1836, which is only a year later than Julia Sybilla, a short birth interval for this time and place. Census records suggest he may be a year or two younger.

Fifth Generation

Children of Solomon Conrad and Anna Maria Leinbach
*Harriet Conrad (abt. 1837-?)
Junius Conrad (1838-1895) m. Edna _____ (1839-1908)
Permelia Conrad (abt. 1839-?)
Reuben Conrad (abt. 1841-?)
Susan Conrad (abt. 1844-?). Did she marry J. Conder in 1866?

*Harriet was previously omitted from this family because she doesn't appear with them in the 1850 census but rather is living with Solomon's unmarried brother Jonathan Conrad and his mother Catherine. In 1860 she appears in duplicate records, with Mary Leinbach Conrad and also with the family of Joseph Conrad. She doesn't appear in the transcribed index to the 1870 census, and the widowed Mary is listed only with Permelia. In 1880, Harriet age 43 is living with Mary Conrad 75, listed as her daughter and insane.

Junius Conrad's age from cemetery records (b. October 1838) crowds the age estimated for Permelia from census records. Is he actually a few years older?
