Children of Georg

Narrative

     Georg was also known as Jerg or Old Georg.

     The earliest record that mentions the Willheit family is a 1539 tax record in Schwaigern.3 Variations in the spelling of the surname are Wylhart, Wilheitt, Wilheyt, and Wilhatt in that tax record. Those taxed in the 1539 record were Michael Wylhart, Jerg Wyhart, Jacob Wilheitt, Anthoni Wilheyt, and Quirin Wylhatt. It is impossible to directly connect any of these to the ancestry of Johann Michael Willheit, the immigrant to Virginia.

     The earliest known ancestor of Johann Michael is his great-great grandfather Georg Willert, born circa 1550. He is mentioned in a 1610 court case as "Old Georg Willert" at age sixty.

     In 1617, Agnes Willert, daughter of deceased George Willert, married Martin Ebelmann. It is believe that she was the daughter of this Georg Willert which would indicate that Georg died between 1611 and 1617.
