Johannes Wilhelm Herman II / John William Herman II

 

 

Born: 10 May 1762
Died:  14 Aug 1829

 

Johannes Wilhelm (John William) Herman II was one of six children born to Johannes Wilhelm (William) Herman and Maria Catherine Motz.  William II was born 10 May 1762 and came to America with his parents when he was five years old. 

 
William II's siblings were: George (Harmon) Herman Sr. (b. 20 Dec 1763, d. 16 Oct 1850), Peter Herman (b. Abt. 1767, d. Abt. 1853), Catherine Herman (b. 21 Dec 1776, d. 17 Mar 1843), Johann Michael Herman (b. 12 Jul 1777, d. 01 Jan 1859) and Mary Herman (b. 05 Feb 1780, d. 13 Aug 1845).
                             
 
 
William Herman II married Mary Kaylor.  Mary was born 27 Dec 1767.
 
William and Mary had five children.

William and Mary lived on land that he inherited from his father in Conover, NC, between Lyle and Meekling Creek.
 
 
Prior to his death, William transferred land to his son John Peter Herman.

Book 33 page 356 Lincoln County: May 16, 1827, William Herman Jr. from John Miller to Peter Herman, for $1, 78 acres on waters of Lyles Creek for life of William Herman Jr. and wife Mary for their support  
 
 
Mary Kaylor Herman (Mrs. Johannes Wilhelm "William" Herman II) was the daughter of Heinrich "Henry" Kaylor.  The following 1813 indenture/deed describes a land transaction between William and Mary Herman and George Kaylor for land Mary had inherited from Henry Kaylor, her father.  The key line from the deed is the following: "we became possessed of by Law in the Personal Estate of Henry Kaylor deceased".  By 1826, the parties still had not consummated the transaction and the document shows that Mary Herman was examined separate and apart from her husband William Herman to determine if she still wanted to sell the land to her brother, George Kaylor, which she finally did.  The Kaylors and Hermans were neighbors and there were other marriages between members of the two families.

William II died 14 Aug 1829.   William and Mary are both buried in the Old St. Paul's Lutheran Church cemetery in Newton, NC, near his parents.  It's possible that the date on Mary's headstone is incorrect.

Sometimes genealogy data conflicts with other data.  Mary's headstone says she died 14 Nov 1822, but the land transaction deed says she was examined by Daniel Hoke in 1826 to see if she did indeed want to sell the piece of property to her brother George Kaylor.  In this case I would say the Court Records are probably more accurate since the date would have been recorded at the time of the transaction.  Headstones, however, were frequently put up at a later time by family members and it wasn't unusual for the information on them to be incorrect.
