Johannes Spielmann, son of Henrich Spielmann and Agnes Risserodt, from Oberschelden was baptized November 9, 1679.

Johannes (John) and his wife Mary filed an affidavit for head rights on June 2, 1724, stating that they had arrived in Virginia in April 1714. It isn't known if John and Mary were married before or after their emigration to the colonies. Some authors assume Mary's maiden name was Fischbach, but no documentation has been located to support this statement.
