MAGDELENE HELENE DIETRICK
Return to Family Index
THE STORY AS I KNOW IT
Most of the following information came from The Simon
Crowell Family by Judith Jo Linenfelser. Also from
the website http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~popfraley/ThompsonTurnbow/pafg179.htm#4990
Magdelene Helene Dietrick was
born about 1690 probably in Hessen Germany. Her
parents are unknown.
Magdelene Dietrick married Conrad Kraul or Graul.
about 1710. By 1714 they were living in
Langenselbold Hessen. and perhaps always had
lived there. It is a large town just east of
Magadelena and Conrad Kraul had one known
child: Peter Kraul
christened march 5, 1714 in Langenselbold.
Peter married Catharine or Karena probably
in Germany and immigrated in 1740 into Pennsylvania.
"Croul Connections" found in rootsweb note that the
ship Loyal Judith arrived in Philadelphia on Nov. 25, 1740.
Peter Grauel, age 26 was aboard. He may be our
Peter. Eventually the American family changed the
spelling of their name to Crowell.
It is not known when Magdelene or her husband Conrad
died. I don't believe they emigrated.
