     John Peter Loethen was also known as Peter Paul Loethen. John Peter Loethen, son of Franz Heinrich Loethen and Anna Christina Scheuten, was born on January 31, 1801 in Lank, Kreis Krefeld, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany.2
John married Margaret Dohman on February 16, 1825 at Lank, Kreis Crefeld, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany.3 Confilicting evidence stated John Peter Loethen and Margaret Dohman were married on February 26, 1826.1
John Peter was an Army officer.4
John Peter Loethen and Margaret Dohman immigrated on February 15, 1837 to New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana, traveling Brig Charles Ferdinand from Bremen to New Orleans. from Lank, Germany via Havre, France. Arriving with John were John Peter Loethen, Johann Adolph Hubert Loethen and Casper Melchior Balthazar Loethen.5,6,7,8
John Peter Loethen Source: Letter rec'd from Mrs. Fred Beck, nee Bertha Adrian, December 5, 1975:

I often recall my mother telling us how her father, our grandfather Adolph Loethen), as a small boy, along with two brothers and his mother came to our States alone and bereaved a they had buried the husband and father
(Peter Loethen) and a baby brother at sea.
Their voyage had been nine months on the sea. This must have been
about 1835 or 1840. I never did learn the exact dates. It seems they immigrated to this county to avoid having the sons serve in the Army which was mandatory there. After disposing of their property, they set sail for
America with all their material possessions. Unfortunately, they, by some means not known to me, were robbed of them on the boat. This caused the father such grief he became ill and contracted what was known in those days as quick TB and died at sea. The baby also became ill and died. The grief stricken widow (Margaret Dohman) and the three orphaned boys were left penniless and destitute.
By some means they came to our state to some relatives with whom they had contact. It seems these relatives were
somewhat embarrassed by their poverty and preferred not to claim relationship. some even changed their name to Luethen.
They struggled and worked as best they could, sometimes having only greens gathered in the woods and cooked without seasonings for their food, and my grandfather in later years could not bear the sight of greens (I was told).
My grandfather (Adolph Loethen) and his brother, John, settled in the St. Thomas community and Balthazar in Jefferson City, and the mother finally married again, namely Herman Schuyler. There were two children of this marriage, Herman and Elizabeth, who later married Schell and later Dr. Points.
It was my grandfather, Adolph Loethen, and Herman Schuyler, who originated the ferry on the Osage River, known as Schuyler's Ferry. They lived in the two houses at the river, one now occupied by Herman
Lueckenhoff, and the other now vacant, owned by John Kempker.
Grandmother's maiden name was Wankum; They were married when she was seventeen years old. It was during the Civil War and the lives of the men were in danger. The bushwhackers, as I recall they were referred to, would come and invade the homes and would take any possessions they could find. The men would hide out during the day in a cave only a few miles from here.
It was my grandfather who finally shot and killed the leader, namely, Crabtree. This happened on a moonlit night on the farm owned by my parents in later years (and where the Adrian family grew to adulthood). He was
buried in Herman Schuyler's wedding suit, which had been stolen by his
men.
My great-uncle, John Wankum, only fourteen years at the time would do the chores and stay with grandmother. They were very young and frightened, so her mother-in—law would stay with them at night. To add to their distress, they lost their first child, finding it dead in the morning. This caused concern as she feared she may have smothered it during the night. Today, it probably would have been called a crib death.
There were seven other children born to them. Only four survived, namely Agnes who is my mother, John, Raymond and Anton.
Grandmother was widowed when only thirty-three years of age. She never remarried. My father was working
for them at the time of grandfather's death and stayed on to help manage the farm and ferry. Mother was fourteen years old at the time of his death. the widow with the children and my father managed as best as they could.
After her retirement, she made her final home with the youngest son, Raymond, who was widowed after about ten years of marriage. John, the oldest son, was widowed and left with three children, Theresa (later Morff), Adolph (died of TB during World War 1), and Lena (Koetting).
Uncle Raymond took Adolph and reared him with the help of grandmother. Theresa was cared for at different homes. Lena, the baby, was foster—mothered by Mrs. Hoecker, later Schroer, whom she loved dearly all her life. These have been called to their reward. Uncle Raymond's only living child, Ida, retarded, is his only descendant, and is making her home with the Sisters of the Good Shepherd in Normandy, Missouri.
My parents married October 23, 1883, when mother was nineteen and dad twenty—six. On December 3, 1884, a daughter, Teresia, was born to them, a bright child who died suddenly of "membrane croup" only a few weeks before
another daughter, Mary, was born on December 25, 19886. A son, Herman Theodore, was born in 1888 who survived only six days. In 1890, twin boys, Theodore and Adolph, were born to them. The following were born as
follows; Louis, Elizabeth, Hedwig (who lived only two years), Hubert, Rose, Bertha, Clara and George (who lived only thirteen months). There were thirteen of us, a happy bunch. Eight lived to adulthood and Mary, Theodore and Adolph have gone to their reward. Dad and Mother passed away — Mother on March 9,
1929 and Dad on February 26, 1936.
(Note: Bertha's parents were Henry Adrian and Agnes Loethen; her
grandfather was Adolph Loethen and her grandmother was Anna Theresa Wankum) in 1837.7
John died in 1837 at sea on the way to New Orleans, Louisiana, aboard the Brig Charles Ferdinand..9,1,10
