They left Rotterdam in 1732 and after stopping in Deal, England for supplies they made their way across the Atlantic Ocean aboard the galley, Johnson, along with 350 other passengers, crew and Captain David Crokatt. On Sept. 18, 1732 they arrived in Philadelphia. Eventually they settled in York Co., Pa.

It was noted that Adam Werner, his wife, Catharana and their children, John Adam and Catharina immigrated to America in 1732. The September 18th 1732 passenger list of the galley, Johnson, lists each of them by name. This is a rare occurrence in the records as few ships bothered to list the names of the entire family. This happy occurrence positively identifies the Werner family. Research shows that the Werners, Johann Adam, Catharina , son John Adam and daughter Catharina, who are listed regularly in the church records of St. Georges Lutheran Church in Masasenbach, Germany up to 1731 completely disappear from the records after that date.

(NOTE: St. George was a Catholic saint, however, Massenbach was owned by a petty Lutheran noble descended through a knightly order, St. George The Dragon Slayer, is
traditionally the patron saint of all knights, regardless of their religious affinity.)
