      RESEARCH STANDARD APPLIED
      Researched by Timothy J. Barron, updated April 10, 2014

      The initial information was found in the book "Nienhaus Family History and Genealogy" by Jack Nienhaus and Janet Heindl. The information has been subsequently supported via the records and documentation listed below.

      GENERAL NOTES
      Researched by Timothy J. Barron, updated April 10, 2014

      Johanna Gesina Effing was commonly known as Regina. Bernard Heinrich Nienhaus has his name listed in a variety of spellings including Bernard, Barney, Nienhaus, Newhouse, Neuhaus, and Ninnhous.

      1812 BIRTH OF BERNARD NIENHAUS
      Researched by Timothy J. Barron, updated April 10, 2014

      According to Nienhaus Family History and Genealogy, Bernard's birth date of January 02, 1812 is based on a church birth record from the parish church of Sankt Pankratius. However, Bernard's grave stone shows his date of birth as May 5, 1827. The grave stone shows his name as "Bernard Henry Neuhaus" and the date of death as August 15, 1878, which agrees with his death certificate. It is believed that the date of birth on the grave stone is in error. Bernard was born and raised in the Bauerschaft (English: farm area) of the town of Estern in the Province of Westphalia, Germany. Like his parents, Bernard was of the Catholic faith and was baptized by the parish church of Sankt Pankratius (English: St. Pancratius) located in the town of Gescher. Estern is located immediately north of the town of Gescher.

      1814 BIRTH OF REGINA EFFING
      Researched by Timothy J. Barron, updated April 10, 2014

      According to Nienhaus Family History and Genealogy, Regina was born and raised in a similar similar Bauerschaft as Bernard's. The Bauerschaft was located near the town of Stadtlohn. Like her parents, Regina was of the Catholic faith and was baptized by the parish church of Sankt Otger (English: St. Otger) in Stadtlohn. Regina was christened on March 8, 1814.

      The Germany, Select Births and Baptisms, 1558-1898 lists the following record: "Name: Joanna Gesina Effing, Gender: Female, Birth Date: 27 Mrz 1814 (27 Mar 1814), Baptism Date: 28 Mrz 1814 (28 Mar 1814), Baptism Place: Sankt Otger Katholisch, Stadlohn, Westfalen, Prussia, Father: Theodor Effing, Mother: Joanna Margaretha Broeyel, FHL Film Number: 858875, Reference ID: 2:X007XQ."

      1844 MARRIAGE OF BERNARD NIENHAUS & REGINA EFFING
      Researched by Timothy J. Barron, updated April 10, 2014

      According to Nienhaus Family History and Genealogy, the parishes of Sankt Pankratius and Sankt Otger are about 11 kilometers (approximately 6.8 miles) apart. The Nienhaus family was from the town of Estern and the Effing family was from Stadtlohn. The two towns are even closer than the churches, about 4 kilometers (approximately 2.5 miles) apart. Therefore, Bernard and Regina lived within walking distance of each other and it can only be speculated how they became acquainted. They were married on May 21, 1844 at Sankt Pankratius church.

      The Germany, Select Marriages, 1558-1929 lists the following record: "Name: Bernhard Nienhaus, Gender: Male, Marriage Date: 21 Mai 1844 (21 May 1844), Marriage Place: Sankt Otger Katholisch, Stadlohn, Westfalen, Prussia, Spouse: Gesina Effing, FHL Film Number: 858876."

      The Germany, Select Marriages, 1558-1929 lists the following record: "Name: Bernard Henrich Nienhues, Gender: Male, Age: 33, Birth Date: 2 Jan 1812, Marriage Date: 21 Mai 1844 (21 May 1844), Marriage Place: Gescher, Westfalen, Preußen, Germany, Father: Henricus Bernardus Meiering Nienhus, Mother: Elisabeth Kockert, Spouse: Gesina Effing, FHL Film Number: 872016, Reference ID: 84-9."

      The Germany, Select Marriages, 1558-1929 lists the following record: "Name: Gesina Effing, Gender: Female, Age: 30, Birth Date: 24 Mai 1814 (24 May 1814), Marriage Date: 21 Mai 1844 (21 May 1844), Marriage Place: Gescher, Westfalen, Preußen, Germany, Father: Theodor Effing, Spouse: Bernard Henrich Nienhues, FHL Film Number: 872016, Reference ID: 84-9."

      1845 IMMIGRATION BERNARD NIENHAUD AND REGINA NIENHAUS
      Researched by Timothy J. Barron, updated April 10, 2014

      According to Nienhaus Family History and Genealogy, the names of emigrants who left the Westfalen area with permission are recorded in a series of books titled "Beitraege zur Westfaelischen Familienforschung." Both Bernard and Regina are listed in these books, where it is stated they received permission in 1844 to emigrate to America. They were listed separately and not as a married couple, but were married that same year. The following arrival record in 1844 would appears to be the same Bernard and Regina (listed as Gesina). Some sources indicate that the journey across the Atantic could take less than a month in the 1840s, so it would appear that they departed immediately after their marriage.

      The New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 lists the following record: "Name: Berhard Neuhaus, Arrival Date: 22 Aug 1844, Birth Date: abt 1812, Age: 32, Gender: Male, Port of Departure: Bremen, Germany, Port of Arrival: New York, New York, Ship Name: Westphalia."

      The New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 lists the following record: "Name: Gesina Neuhaus, Arrival Date: 22 Aug 1844, Birth Date: abt 1814, Age: 30, Gender: Female, Port of Departure: Bremen, Germany, Port of Arrival: New York, New York, Ship Name: Westphalia." They are listed together as follows: LINE 162: Bernard Neuhaus, age 32, male, occupation: farmer, country to which belong: Gesher, country to which intend to become inhabitants: Buffalo; LINE 163: Gesina Neuhaus, age 30, female, Gesher, Bufflao, country to which belong: Gesher, country to which intend to become inhabitants: Buffalo.
