About Johann Adam Romig (Romich)

Johann Adam Romig (1689-1768) was born in 1689 in Neidenstein, Palatinate, the son of Georg Wendel Romig and Margaretha Herner. He married Agnes Margaretha Bernhardt (1687-ca. 1735), daughter of Nicholaus and Elisabetha Bernhardt, in 1712 in Ittlingen. They emigrated on the Dragon in 1732. Nine children are named in Ittlingen church records (see Burgert, Northern Kraichgau), but two of these appear to have died very young, probably before they left Europe. Agnes Margaretha died soon after their arrival in Pennsylvania, and he married Maria Ursula Wanner, daughter of Mattheus and Anna Margaretha Wanner, with whom he had five additional children.

Fifty Acres were establishe in Kempton Wher the Union Jerusalem Church Resides today, and the only name ever recorded on the deed was John Adam Romich." The Union Jerusalem Lutheran Church, also known as "The Red Church" in Kempton, Pa.

John Adam later became a Moravian. He and his fellow Moravians settled land in Lynn Township in 1734. There they established a Moravian Church and settlement. They were bothered by numerous Indian attacks and relocated to the Emmaus area.

There are three sets of passenger lists:

The "A" lists are the Captains' Lists of passengers being imported (these are usually the most inaccurate of the three); The "B" lists are the Oaths of Allegiance to the King; the "C" lists are Oaths of Abjuration from the Pope. An individual being transported may be found on one or all of the three lists.
