Tobias Finkbeiner & Johann Conrad Finkbohner (Fanckpohner) were fifth cousins once removed; they were the first known Finkbeiner/Finkbohner members to immigrate to America in 1752.
They both immigrated to America aboard the ship Duke of Wuerttemberg, arriving at the port of Philadelphia on the 20 October 1752. They sailed out of the port of Hamburg, Germany in May of 1752; Tobias, incorrectly listed as Elias Finslaimer, was from Freudenstadt, Wuerttemberg, and Johann Conrad, listed as Conrath Funckbohner, was from Schoemberg, Wuerttemberg.
Tobias Finkbeiner was the youngest brother of Johann Friedrich Finkbeiner (1711-1783), who remained in Baiersbronn-Mitteltal-Labbronnen, Kries Freudenstadt, Wuerttemberg, Germany, the direct-line paternal ancestral grandfather of Gary A. Finkbeiner.
Since Tobias and Johann Conrad came to America, many other clans of Finkbeiner/Finkbohner later immigrated to America during the 1800s (including Gary A. Finkbeiners Great-Great Grandfather, Johannes Finkbeiner, and Great Grandfather, Friedrich Finkbeiner, in 1872; they settled in Thornapple Township, Barry County, Michigan).
The common ancestor between Gary Finkbeiner (participant #61355) and descendants of Tobias Finkbeiner (participants 82169 and 157115) is the Johann Martin Finkbeiner (1678-1740) shown in the table above.
