RICHTER(ING), Johan Bernard
BORN: Aug 18, 1823, Leschede (parish in Emsbueren)
PARENTS: Johan Theodor SCHULTE RICHTERING
Susanna Maria TRUESSEL (also called KOLK)
EMIGRATION: 1838 - arrived New Orleans Jan 10, 1838 on the ship Cumberland
Bernard RICHTERING 14, from Schepsberg (Schepsdorf) to MO (listed with the KNUEVEN/HILLEN family who settled in Westphalia, MO)
MARRIED: unknown *
*Johan Bernard Richater(ing) had been previously listed as having  Maria Tellman as his wife but now it seems clear that Maria's husband was Bernard H Richter born Oct 27, 1820, in Prussia rather than Hannover.
NOTES: 1839 Father Helias Census
Bernardus RICHTERING, famulus, 19
listed with Theodorus KOLKS and wife Maria Catharine
Bernard RICHTERING was godfather for a child of Theodor KOLKS and Maria Catharine KOESTERS (born in Lohne) in 1841 at St Joseph parish in Westphalia. This may be the last documented presence of Bernard in MO.
SOURCES: This ID is not 100% certain because no US document has been found with Johan Bernard's parents' names nor his exact date of birth. Nevertheless, it is thought to be a correct ID because in 1839 he was living with Theodore Kolks who was probably the uncle of Johan Bernard born 1823 in Leschede.
Johan Bernard's approximate year of birth was known from his age on US censuses and his age on the passenger list of the ship Cumberland. The passenger list indicated he had been living in Lohne, Schepsdorf when he emigrated so that parish's records were checked but no corresponding baptismal entry was found for him there. There was an entry for someone with his name in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika which had the date and place of birth and parents' names given above. The online Emsbueren Datenbank was also checked and the same birth information was found there for Johan Bernard RICHTERING also call KOLK.
