The first members of the Holben family to migrate from Germany to America were Silvestor Holber (Holben) and Conrad Holbe (Holben) who arrived together in Philadelphia, PA in 1737 aboard the sailing ship "Billinder Townshead" from Amsterdam via Cowes, England.
The area of Lehigh Co.in the Weisenberg Township where they eventually settled was one of rolling hills and lush farming country very similar to the area of southern Germany.
Johann Jacob followed on 21 Sep 1742 arriving in Philadelphia aboard the sailing ship "Francis & Elizabeth" from Rotterdam via, Deal, ENG. He was 24 years old and apparently unmarried. He came from Odenwald area of southwest GER south of Frankfurt and north of Heidelberg. This section is also known as Schwabia. Caesar recognized the Schwabians as fierce fighters in his conquests.
Johann probably stayed with Silvestor and Conrad for a short time before purchasing land in Weisenberg in 1750. The area was soon known as "Holbens Valley" and is recorded as such on early maps.
Johann Jacob built a log cabin in Weisenberg and it is believed this is the one, which still stands in the area today. It is dated as having been built in 1743 and is part of a historical tour of Weisenberg.
