About Johannes "Mark" Stonecypher, Jr.

Johannes and Elizabeth sailed to Virginia from the Duchy of Wirtenberg, Germany on Sept. 19, 1749, on the ship Patience.

(There is also record of a Joh. Daniel Stenseiffer who sailed to Virginia from Rotterdam, Holland on 2 Oct., 1753. Also a Joh. Heinreich Stenseiffer who sailed to America from Rotterdam on the ship Edinberg, with Capt. James Lyon and 211 persons.) (These ships may have docked in Annapolis, Maryland, before the Steinseiffers went on to Virginia.)

They came to the Culpepper area which was popular with German immigrants. The first of their children was born in Germany. They were part of a very significant era in American and European history: the Germanna Colonies, which spawned in Colonial Virginia.
