The Descendants of Johann Georg Weckesser (Vickerson) and Anna Barbara Juncker


Generation No. 1

1. JOHANN GEORG5 WECKESSER (JOHANN HELWIG4, NICOLAUS3, JOHANNES2, ?1) was born 02 January 1756 in Willingshausen, Hessen-Cassel, Germany, and died 25 August 1805 in Marshfield, PEI, Canada. He married ANNA BARBARA JUNCKER Abt. 1783 in Probably New York, daughter of CHRISTIAN JUNCKER and ANNA MUHL. She was born Abt. 1768 in Hessen-Cassel, Germany, and died 27 August 1850 in Marshfield, PEI, Canada.


George Vickerson was born Johann Georg Weckesser in Willingshausen, Hessen-Cassel, Germany on Jan. 2 1756. He was the son of Anna Catharina Schmid and a married man from Loshausen, Helwig Weckesser. He was named after his uncle, Johann Georg Schmid, who also raised him. In 1770, at confirmation, he assumed his father's name Weckesser.

Georg never knew his father who died in Sept. 1756. His mother died unmarried in August 1781, when Georg was in America.

Georg joined the Hessen-Cassel military when he was 17; he was stationed with the von Knyphausen Regiment in the garrison town of Ziegenhain. On March 3, 1776, after the agreements between King George III of England and the Langreave of Hessen-Cassel, the von Knyphausen regiment left Ziegenhain. They departed Germany from Bremerlehe with the first division on April 17, 1776. They arrived in Sandy Hook, New York on the 12th of August of 1776. Georg's regiment participated in the battles of Flatbush and White Plains, the capture of Fort Washington and the battle of Trenton, Christmas, 1776. Although the Americans at Trenton captured most of the regiment, Georg, along with a handful of other soldiers, escaped capture. The remainder of the von Knyphausen, Rall and Lossberg regiments was formed into a combined battalion, which participated in the affair of Brandywine Creek. In September 1779, the prisoners from Trenton having been reunited with their regiment, the von Lossberg and Knyphausen regiments were ordered to go to Quebec City along with the English 44th Regiment. The English were expecting an attack from the Americans and/or the French who had entered the revolutionary war on the side of the Americans.

The 4th company and half of the 2nd company of the von Knyphausen Regiment were loaded on the transport Archer. The embarkment list showed the following:

Col. von Borck

Capt. Von Loewenstein

Capt. Schimmelfeng

Artillery Lieut. Fischer

Lieut. Zimmermann

Lieut. Ritter

53 men from von Borck's Company

116 men from von Stein's Company

26 Artillery

12 "small staff"

As Georg Weckesser was in the von Stein Company, he was on board the Archer. It is also probable that Regimental Drummer, Christian Ernst Juncker and his wife and 2 children, Anna Barbara and Johann Conrad were also boarded on the Archer. The transport ships of the fleet were all in very poor condition and undermanned. The Archer left Sandy Hook on Sept. 9, 1779 and was separated from the rest of the fleet because of high winds. The Archer managed to return to Sandy Hook under the escort of the Camilla, with Capt. Collins in command. When they arrived, they discovered the rest of the fleet had already left. Again delayed by weather, the Archer finally departed on Sept. 17. In the meantime, most of the fleet had been badly damaged in the storm, and the ships were either captured or had sunk. Because Christian Juncker's name does not appear on any of the prisoner lists from the captured vessels, he probably was on the Archer.

The Archer arrived in Halifax on September 28, and departed again for Quebec on October 4 after having received word that the rest of the fleet was lost. On October 13, while in the Straights of Canso, enemy privateers were sighted and one was captured by the Camilla. During the later half of October, storms in the Gulf of St. Lawrence prevented the ships from entering the St. Lawrence River and they returned to Charlottetown, St. John's Island (PEI) on Nov. 27. After some difficult negotiations with the Governor of the Island, the men were allowed to go ashore. At first, they pitched tents and later built huts of earth and wood. The winter was extreme and lasted well into April. It even snowed on May 23. The Archer left Charlottetown on June 15 and arrived in Quebec City later that month.

The von Knyphausen Regiment spent the winter of 1780/81 in Quebec and then was ordered back to New York, where they spent the balance of the war. On January 16, 1782, Christian Ernst Juncker died of natural causes at the approximate age of 48. Georg Weckesser became the legal guardian of Johann Conrad and Wilhelm Fischer was promoted to Regimental Drummer of the von Knyphausen Regiment. Sometime before the Regiment departed New York for Germany, probably in 1783, Georg Weckesser married Anna Barbara Juncker, who was a young girl, about 15 years old at the time.

In August, 1783, ships carrying the von Knyphausen regiment left for Hessen-Cassel with Georg Weckesser and his wife, Wilhelm Fischer, Anna Maria Juncker and young Johann Conrad, probably about 11 at the time on board. It wasn't long before Wilhelm Fischer and Anna Maria Juncker were married. The marriage took place on December 13, 1783 and the birth of their only daughter occurred on October 30, 1784. Wilhelm Fischer was the Godfather of Georg and Anna Barbara Juncker's first child Wilhelm (born Feb. 25, 1784) and Anna Maria Fischer was the Godmother of their first daughter, Anna Maria (born December 14, 1786). >From 1783 until March 1787, the two families remained in Ziegenhain. Georg was transferred to the Grenadier Company in January 1786. At some point, Wilhelm Fischer, for reasons, which are unknown, was stripped of his rank as Regimental drummer. Whether of not this precipitated the desertion of Georg and Wilhelm is unknown. What is known is that Wilhelm Fischer, who was in the Garrison in Ziegenhain deserted on March 23, 1787 with his uniform and bayonet. Georg, who was on holiday, was reported to have deserted one day later, also with his uniform and bayonet. As emigration from Hessen-Cassel was prohibited (personal communication), the two families with their 4 children (ages 3 months, 2.5 years, 3 years and about 15 years) escaped from Hessen-Cassel, made their way to the coast, across the Atlantic and to PEI.

It is not known where the families first settled when they arrived in PEI. One of the first things they did, however, was to claim (Nov. 19 1787) tools and other supplies which were granted to loyalists and disbanded soldiers. Family tradition says that George Vickerson (as he was now called) received a land grant in lot 40, a parcel of land, which was then given to 2 of his daughters married to the Sandersons. This seems unlikely, however, as the Sandersons were already living on that land before George arrived in PEI. We do know that George was an early settler in Lot 34 by the Hillsborough River. This land he must have rented, not from the original absentee landlord, but from an individual named Peter Stewart. In the Montgomery papers, reference is made to Peter Stewart renting 1000 acres of land (Oct. 15, 1798) in lot 34 from the boundary of lot 34/35 running 62.5 chains and 1 mile and 21 chains from the Hillsborough River. This is the parcel of land on which Anna Barbara Vickerson owned 200 acres in the early 1800's. In the list of rents in the Montgomery papers, no mention of George Vickerson can be found, yet his name appears in the 1798 census for lot 34. Wilhelm Fischer located in lot 32 and Conrad Younker is also found there in early maps of lot 32. We also know that George Vickerson requested a grant of land in lot 32. The minutes of the Council of the House of Assembly for Jan. 3, 1797 reads "Read a Petition of George Vickasser praying for a grant of land on Lot 32 formerly occupied by Andrew Ladner. The petitioner not having been located on the lands prayed for, his case cannot be considered to be within the meaning of the Act of Assembly." As an interesting footnote, the Journal of the House of Assembly for 1833, which recorded the deliberations of a committee looking into abuses of land grants for loyalists and disbanded soldiers records the following " Another case brought under the notice of your Committee, an affidavit, was that of a disbanded soldier who had drawn 100 acres on Township Number 32, which were duly laid out and located to him, and of which he took possession in the following spring, and built a house thereon, in which he lived for two winters, and was often promised and expected to obtain his Grant, but never could procure it-but being necessarily absent from his place for a few months only, when his house was accidentally burnt in his absence the then Governor of this Island (Patterson) then also claiming to be Proprietor of the said Township number 32, informed him that he should not have the land so located to him, in consequence of his said absence therefore, and he, therefore, was obliged to abandon it and his improvements." One wonders, and perhaps evidence can be located to prove so, if George Vickerson is the disbanded soldier referred to in the above. Also in this connection, is a deed from Andrew Ladner to George Vickessers, dated Oct 4, 1796, whereby he sold all his improvements on a lot of land on the North River to George Vickerson for 13 pounds.

One can surmise that George Vickerson, first received a grant of land on lot 32, along with William Fisher, but when he was forced off his land, was forced to rent land and to take up residence on lot 34.

Family tradition also stated that George Vickerson was an officer in the German Army, and Professor Lemuel Robertson indicated that he had seen his discharge papers when he was a young boy living with 2 of George's daughters. We know that George could not have had discharge papers from the Hessen-Cassel army as he deserted. However, in amongst the papers from William Fisher was a discharge paper for William from the militia in PEI. It is therefore quite possible that George Vickerson was also in the same militia and could have been the officer (Cornet) that some have claimed he was.

George Vickerson ended his days at the early age of 49, dying on August 25, 1805, leaving a pregnant wife and seven children.


Evidence that Georg Weckesser and George Vickerson were the same person:

1) Military records from Hessen-Cassel army for Georg Weckesser 1775-1786 (Mass- und Rangierlisten, v. Knyphausen and v. Donop regiments, Staatsarchiv, Marburg, Germany)

2) Military record indicating that Georg Weckesser deserted from Hessen-Cassel army on March 24, 1787 along with Wilhelm Fischer (deserted March 23, 1787). (Truppentagebuch, v. Donop regiment, Staatsarchiv, Marburg, Germany

3) Birth records for children (Wilhelm and Anna Maria) of George Weckesser and Anna Barbara Juncker (Ziegenhain church records, Ziegenhain, Germany). Wilhelm Fischer was the Godfather of Wilhelm and Anna Maria Fischer, the Godmother of Anna Maria.

4) List of tools given to loyalists and disbanded soldiers (CO 226, Minutes of HM Council 29 Oct. 1787 - 30 July 1788, PEI Archives) showing that George Vickerson and William Fisher received their tools on Nov. 17, 1787

5) Petition for grant of land (CO 226, Minutes of HM Council 3 Jan. 1797,PEI Archives) where George Vickerson's name is spelled "Vickasser"

6) Registration of deed (Land Registry Books, 10 Aug. 1802 PEI Archives) where George Vickerson's name is spelled "Vickessers"

7) Census of 1798 for lot 34, PEI that lists George Vickerson

8) Marriage License for Elizabeth Vickerson (8 Jan. 1822), the daughter of George Vickerson, where she signs her name as "Elizabeth Weckersser" (PEI archives)

9) Newspaper obituary (PEI) for George Vickerson, son of George Vickerson, Dec. 1889 indicating that "...whose parents emigrated from Hesse-Cassel, in Germany, in the year 1790."

10) Obituary for Anna Barbara Younker from "The Examiner", 28 Aug. 1850 reads "Died on the 27th at her residence, Smithfield, Hillsborough River, aged 85 years, Anna Barbara, relict of the late John Classon, ...She was a native of Germany." Her will (cited elsewhere) gives her name as Younker or Classon and her children's names as Vickerson.



Fact 1: George Vickerson in Canada

Fact 2: Georg was raised by his uncle George Schmid


The Examiner, August 28, 1850

"Died on the 27th at her residence, Smithfield, Hillsborough River, aged 85 years, Anna Barbara, relict of the late John Classon, deeply regretted by numerous offspring and a large circle of friends and acquaintances . She bore her illness with Christian patience and resignatioon to the devine will. She was a native of Germany."
