Yes please (jclimenh at

There are some BALTIMORE CUSTOMS RECORDS in microfilm from 1789 that may help answer this question.

My working theory right now is that William (Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Kleimenhagen) b 17 Dec 1758 at Waldeck, Ober-Waroldern, Germany, son of Johann Christoph Kleimenhagen and Anna Maria Gool, is the Climenhage/Climenhaga ancestor. His brother, Johann Heinrich Kleimenhagen b 22 Aug 1755 was a Hessian soldier who enlisted in 1776, deserted in NJ Apr 1777 and joined the Continental Army in May 1777.

There is also a third Johann Heinrich Kleimenhagen b 1763 at Ober-Waroldern, Germany, son of Johann Bernhard Kleimenhagen and Catharina Elizabeth Weisshaupt that is often listed as the Climenhag* ancestor. He is a first cousin of the two brothers but cannot be our ancestor as he died in Waldeck in 1823.

I'll post more about that here when I have a more complete picture.
