Werner Family

First Generation

Johann Adam Werner was born before 1707 in Germany. He married Maria Catharina Sigler in Germany, and their older children's births are recorded in the Evangelische Kirchbuch of Massenbach, Schwaigern, Wuerttemburg, Germany. They immigrated in September, 1732, on the Johnson of London.

Second Generation

Children of Johann Adam and Catharina Werner

Note: some of their descendants adopted the spelling VARNER, others remained WERNER or WARNER. In the third and subsequent generations we have used what appears to be the prevalent spelling for each family.

Maria Elisabeta Werner (b. 1726, died young)
Eva Catharina Werner (b. 1727) m. Michael Pfauz (1722-1803)
Maria Elisabeta Werner (b. 1729)
Johann Adam Werner m. Anna Maria Pfauz (1738-after 1814), Michael's sister
Veronica? Werner; child named as Foaney in her father's will; one source gives her name as Veronica
Johann Georg Werner
Jacob Werner
Christopher Werner
John Werner

Johann Adam and Catharina and their families settled near the Uwharrie River, in what is now Randolph County NC.

Third Generation

Children of Johann Adam Werner and Anna Maria Pfauz
Henry Varner m. 1) Kerenhappuch Tucker, 2) Molly, surname unknown
Frederick Varner, moved to Georgia
Jacob Varner
John Varner
Joseph Varner
Christian Andreas Werner (1768-1814) m. Catharina Hauser (1763-1837), widow of Johann Michael Seiz
Johann Jonas Werner (1770-1786)

Christian Andreas and Johann Jonas Werner were brought by their mother to the Moravian settlement at Bethabara in January 1782 as apprentices, after their father's death. Johann Jonas died of smallpox in 1786. Christian Andreas remained in association with the Moravian community, although he did not join the church formally until 1799. He was the miller at Bethania grist mill.

Fourth Generation

Children of Christian Andreas Werner and Catharina Hauser
*Friedrich Werner (ca. 1794-?) m. Rosina Miller (married in 1813)
Jonas Werner/Warner (1797-1882) m. Leah Leinbach (1797-1879)
Jacob Werner (1799-1882) m. Johanna Gertraud Hege (1800-1882)
*Catharina Werner (died in infancy, in 1801)
*Christian Lewis Warner (1803-1879) m. Susannah Kreeger (1806-1884) (both buried at Tabernacle Methodist)
Rebecca Elisabeth Werner (1807-1887) m. 1) John Hunter (d. bef. Oct. 1829), 2) Solomon Shore (1806-1840)

(* Parentage is not proven, but if not Christian's, then whose?)

Information on Rebecca was revised on December 31, 2000, thanks to some super detective work by Ann Holladay

People's Press, Saturday, April 26, 1851 -- "Died, in this place on the 21st instant, Mrs. Louisa Warner, consort of Benjamin Warner, in the 56th year of her age." Previously we asked who Benjamin Warner was. We now know that he was the son of Massa Warner and Maria Dorothea Miksch [corrected 12/7/05] of Pennsylvania, and that he came to NC in 1825 with his bride Louisa Stotz, to take over management of the Salem tavern. His older sister, Anna Dorothea Warner, had come to Salem in 1814. She married Johann Jacob Blum in 1828. So far as we know, this family is not related to Christian Andreas Werner.

Fifth Generation

The 1820-1840 census records indicate that Friedrich Warner and Rosina Miller had a family, but they seem to have left the Forsyth Co. area before 1850, and we don't know the names of their children. But could they be the parents of Catherine Warner (ca. 1821-1858) who married P.T. Shults, September 25, 1853?
