TWO Meyer Emigrants From Thomasburg

There, two emigrants with the name Meyer who are listed from
Thomasburg:
Do You know why I am interested in this???.

1. Juergen Heinrich Christoph MEYER from Thomasburg, b.* 1841,
emigrated to New York 1866 and
2. Juergen MEYER from Thomasburg, emigrated abt. 1869.
HE was father of the illegitimate born Catharine Dorothee Magdalena
(b. * January 27, 1869),
Her mother was Catharine Margarethe Marie Dorothee PAGUHL from Wennekath.

Usually Illegitimate children in those days in Germany had to take the mothers surname, but maybe not the case if the father is claimed and known. Also one must keep in mind that if your very poor a marriage may not be allowed.

Unknown. I could speculate and say the information came from Aida.
