Transou Family

First Generation

Abraham Transou was born about 1700 in Mutterstadt, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. He came to America in 1730 aboard The Thistle of Glasgow . Abraham is believed to be the son of Jacob Trentsols, born about 1657 in Somme, France. Jacob was married to Elizabeth Le Roi. The parents of Abraham have not been documented.

Abraham Transou married Elizabeth Muschler in 1721 in the German Reformed church at Mutterstadt. She died sometime between 22 Dec 1726, the birthdate of their son Anthon, and 22 July 1727, when he married Anna Margaretha Müller.

On July 26th they moved into a new home in Bethania. A diary of their journey appears in the Records of the Moravians in NC 1:256-263.

Fourth Generation

In 1780 it was suggested that Abraham Transou move from Bethania to Bethabara, in order to help with the brewery and distillery there. He was described as a "well-behaved and industrious" young man, but he declined to go, "giving as his reason that he would have no companions of his own age, but only old Brethren." (He was 24 years old at the time.) In 1782 he married his first wife, Anna Maria Pfaff. His second wife was Eva Schulz, widow of Johann Jacob Stolz

Abraham Transou House, Bethania Township

Abraham Transou built this two-story log house in the last 1700s or early 1800s. It is smaller than the other log houses in Bethania but features a rear, brick-nogged addition.

Maria Catharine Transou (1792-1819)
Elisabeth Transou (1794-1847) m. Johann Heinrich Senseman (1786-1854)

*We have heard from some readers who are confused about the two men of nearly the same age, both named Peter or Petrus Transou. Johann Philip's son Peter (1791-1871) is the one who moved to Tennessee in 1835. His cousin Peter (1792-1852), son of Johannes and Rebecca Transou, remained in North Carolina. Note however that the widow Maria Christina Peterson Transou came back to Salem after her husband's death in Tennessee, and became a resident of the "Sisters' Home" in Salem.

*Update - January 5, 2002, e-mail from John Kopp
"New Years Eve my wife and I joined our son and his wife in Memphis, TN. While there, we all visited 'The Pink Palace Museum'. On the museum's upper floor is an exhibit of late 1800s and early 1900s clothing, packaged foods, farming implements, medical tools, etc. Typical of most museums, attached to the various walls were several glass display cases. One of those cases contains a gravestone that was dug up by some farmer while plowing his fields during the 1930s. It happened somewhere near Jackson, Tennessee. The stone is about 2 feet by 2 feet square. According to the information card in the display case, the farmer attempted tolocate a nearby cemetery where the stone might have come from, but was unable to do so. Eventually, he donated it to the museum for preservation. The stone reads:

'Ann J., Wife of Peter Transou, Born Salem, N.C. Born Dec. 17, 1789 - died Jun 7, 1858' "
