  • Note:
    This record of the family of John Abraham Brosius has been compiled very largely from the following historical data:

    John Abraham Brosius arrived in Philadelphia, in ship "Robert and Alice", September 24, 1742. He with others took the Oath of Allegiance the same day before the Court in Philadelphia. He married Margaret Wolfe in 1743.

    History of Lebanon and Dauphin Counties states that Abraham Brosius of Heidelburg (now Lebanon) County, died April 1776 leaving a wife Margaret and the following children: Jacob, Joseph, Catherine, Christina, Barbara, and Mary. This is from papers sent by Mrs. Sallie D. Shultz (Hartranft) and believed to be a descendant of the above named Mary who married a Jno Smith, to Marriott Brosius, March 21, 1900, from Jersey City, where she then lived. These papers were given to me some time since. Sallie further states in her letter than her father "had other papers to prove the claim for the Brosius Fortune, that were sent to George W. Albert of Hagerstown, Md.

    A letter from Mrs. Carrie L. Call, of Knightstown, Ind., states: "There is reason to believe that Abraham Brosius (her ancestor) was the son of John Abraham Brosius, who came to Philadelphis in ship "Robert and Alice", September 24, 1742, and that later he had a brother Nicholas with him and another brother Johan Heinrich Brosius, who arrived in the ship "Judith", September 15, 1748. John Abraham Brosius married Margaret Wolfe and the names of his children are on the records of the Trinity Lutheran Church of Reading, Pa."

    "His will was probated May 7, 1776, and the names of his children are given as follows: Henry (oldest), Abraham, Jacob, Catherine, Christina, Barbara, Mary, Susanna, Joseph."

    A chart prepared by Rev. Everett Heath Brosius, of Baltimore, shows: Dr. Henry Brosius, said to have come to this country with his brother Abraham, but to have returned to the Old Country. Also said to have left large Estates in Holland which the Brosius family have been investigating for years. (John) Abraham Brosius, born in Zweibrucken Germany. Saided from Rotterdam in ship "Robert and Alice". Landed in Philadelphia, 1742. Born 1722. Married Margaret Wolfe, 1743. Died 1777. Their children are given as: Catherine married Geo. Albert, Christina married Jno Newman, Mary married Jno Smith, Susanna married Jno Sollada, Joseph, Henry, Jacob born 1744, Died at Hancock, Md., Nov. 27, 1822, married 1772 Catherine Newman, Born 1754, Died Oct. 28, 1830.

    It will be noted that this list does not include Abraham and Barbara, who are mentioned in the will.

    Mrs. Daisy H. Jordan, of Bedford, Pa., furnished the list of descendants of Catherine Brosius.

    A chart was supplied by Mrs. Molly Price Brosius, widow of Dr. William Lewis Brosius, who died at Gallatin, Mo., in 1919, and who is said to have prepared a comprehensive history of his branch of the family, ie., descendants of Jacob Brosius, and Eva Meyer, which is in storage with other effects in Galatin. This chart which is incorporated here is very incomplete as to names and dates.

    If you study my sources, you will see that I haven't done much research before the 1850 census. I have some material based on Bible entries, DAR applications, local history books, and wills for earlier periods but need to do a lot more work on the lines further out. Please contact me with updates and corrections.
