Karl Agustus Earlywine

Karl was 12 years younger than Andreas.

From the PA Archives, 2nd Ser. Vol XVII, Carl Augustus Erlewein came on the ship "Phoenix" from Rotterdam.

The voyage of Phoenix, of Sept. 30, 1743 is listed in the book "Thirty Thousand Names of Immigrants to Pennsylvania." The passenger list is there also. Her ancestor is listed as Cal August ERLWEIN. No Females are listed on these early voyages, sometimes the total is given for females and boys under sixteen. No other information is given about the passengers, just the name. There is a quote in the front of the book that states, "many of the names were written by clerks and they are noted with a *." Her passenger has one after his name which means that the passenger did not write his own signature, the clerk would spell it as it sounded to him.


  • From Pat Westcott - (same list as mentioned above), this confirms it:

Page 163-164 of "Thirty Thousand Names of Immigrants in Pennsylvania" by I. Daniel Rupp:

September 30, 1743 - Foreigners imported in the ship Phoenix, William Wilson, Commander, from Rotterdam, last from Cowes. Passenger: Cal. August Erlwein.

Johan Adam Earlywine

Johann Adam and wife Johanna were witnesses to the baptism of George Jacob Loos, October 31, 1846

According to the History of Harrison, Nicholas, Scott and Bourbon Counties, by Ferrin says he came to the US in 1731

Daniel Earlywine

Daniel and his brother, George Earlywine left their parents and younger brother, Andreas Jr., and struck out for Kentucky in covered wagons. They traveled via the forbes Road which crosses Pennsylvania from Philadelphia to near Pittsburg and then they went south for a short distance and hit the National Road. At Columbus, Ohio they took the fork to the left and got on the Natchez Trace which took them into Lexington, Kentucky. It was over 40 days of traveling.

Daniel said his goodbyes to the family and reported to the officer in charge at Lancaster. He learned the basics of military behavior in about two weeks and as a private, was assigned to the 7th Virginia Regiment. He later fought with the 9th Virginia regiment on the "Continental Line". He was with General George Washington at Valley Forge during that terrible winter of 1778 and he was at Fort Pitt in 1779. He served until the end of the war. His official number was D#1081. After the war, he returned with the men of Captain Springer's Company and on March 21, 1783 under Colonel John Gobson, he received his pay of 108 pounds, 7 shillings and 1 pence. The money was important but more important was the 100 acres of land that he was granted under the Continental Line Warrant Act, Military District of Ohio. His 100 acre grant was recorded on June 24, 1783 under warrant 1081 which was his military service number. Many years later he would be assigned a DAR National Number 521434. Daniel Earlywine could now choose the location of his 100 acre farm. He never did. On the 12th of May, 1830 his son, Daniel Jr., filed for a land warrant that was never claimed by his father.

His number is D#1081, BL Wt 1649-100.

History of Harrison, Nicholas, Scott and Bourbon Counties, by Ferrin.

Daniel Earlywine, Revolutionary soldier of Virginia died ca. 1830 in Kentucky, Nicholas County.

Daniel Earlywine, Sr. married Mary Flight, July 24, 1786 in bourbon Co., Ky., (then Va.) They were married by James Garrand, who became the second governor of Kentucky (1796-1804).

Andreas Earlywine

30,000 Immigrants by Rupp -- Andreas Erlewyne came on ship "Samuel" from Rotterdam, last Dowes, August 17, 1731.

In notes from Wayne Earleywine (Earlywine) reads: And so on August 17, 1731 Andreas, Ann and Adam set foot in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They had arrived the evening of August 15th but were not permitted to disembark until a medical doctor had examined each passenger for smallpox and typhoid. They had left their family on this journey in Mid April 1731 (resided in Wurttemberg Province, Germany).


I found an Andreas Erlewyne listed as a passenger on 17 August 1731.  Palatines imported in the ship "Samuel", Hugh Peircy, Master, from Rotterdam, last from Cowes.--Males, thiry-nine above sixteen, sixteen boys under sixteen; thirty-three women above sixteen, and twenty-one girls under sixteen.

This was found in the book called "Thirty Thousand Names of Immigrants in Pennsylvania" by I. Daniel Rupp, Page 64 and 65.
