Johann Ernst Schumann was from Idstein, Germany. His son, Johann Nicolaus Schumann bp 16 Jan 1701 Idstein, Hessen-Nassau, Germany brought his family to Broad Bay on the ship "Elisabeth" in 1753. Wife's name is not mentioned. Many of his 7 children were baptized in Brake, Lippe, Northern Germany so it is implied that the family may have moved back to Idstein before coming to America. One of his son's, Johann Berendt, married Jane (?) abt 1754 and had 7 children. They were Charles abt 1754, Adam 1756, Anna Mary 18 Jun 1757, Catherine 1762, Philip abt 1766, John 1768 and Christine Jane 1769.

Catherine married John Feiler, son of Godfrey Feiler and Regina Fahs, abt 1783. They had 10 children, all listed in the book.

There are too many references to the Feiler family to list here. You should try to get your local library to borrow the book for you. It's called Broad Bay Pioneers by WW Whitaker and GT Horlacher and was published by Picton Press, Rockport, ME in April 1998, ISBN 0-89725-210-1.

A word of caution. I have found the book to contain numerous errors so you should be certain to cross-check all data.
