"The marriage of Johan Adam Householder and Maria Elizabetha Weidman was one of the first marriages listed in the church book of the Warwick Congregation. Rev. Stoever began the Warwick church book in 1743 which was the same year that the Warwick Congregation was likely established."

"Johan Adam Householder (#79) was the only person with that surname reported on that voyage of the Friendship to Philadelphia. However, his brother, Johan George Householder, may have accompanied Johan Adam Householder on the voyage. As well, Margaretha Householder and Elizabetha Householder may have also been on this 1739 voyage of the Friendship. Since the ship list only contained males..." (Source: The Householder Genealogy: Householder, Housholder, Haushalter, Volumes 1-2, Jane Farrell Burgess, 1987., p. 21.) [Note: Margaretha was Johan's sister. If Elizabetha (Johan's future wife) was on the ship, her last name was Weidman, not Householder, since she did not marry Johan until 1743, 4 years after the ship's arrival.]

Elizabeth and her husband had 10 children: John Adam Householder, Andrew Adam Householder, Maria Barbara Householder, Mathias Householder, Elizabeth Householder, Christian Householder, Eve Householder, Catharina Householder, Maria Margaret Householder (#40), and Anna Maria Householder.
