Johannes Schwind(t) is listed as a passenger on the ship, Loyal Judith, that arrived in Philadelphia on September 2, 1743. Also listed is (two lists & two different spellings) Friederich Fiechgus/Friderich Fischkus and Gerhart/Gerhard Fishkus. This is Johann Frederick/Frederich Fiscus (spelled Fiscus in Germany and in US) whose three oldest children were christened in the Evangelical Lutheran Church at Ober Saulheim in present-day Germany.
It is assumed that Frederick Fiscus's wife, Anna Elisabetha Schwind, was also on the ship, but only men are listed. There is a website that has notes about several of the passengers, including Johannes Schwind(t). I will quote it here, but I will also list my disclaimers:
3. Johannes Schwindt (Johannes Schwind) is probably a brother of Anna Elizabeth Schwind, who was married to Johann Friedrich Fiscus (they married in 1733 and she died in 1750 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania - she was probably a passenger on the ship, but only men are listed).
I would say that Johannes Schwind(t) is quite possibly a RELATIVE of Anna Schwind, but there is no evidence of the exact relationship. (It cannot even be proven that Gerhard and Frederick Fiscus were related, although it seems logical.) Johann Frederick Fiscus and Anna Elisabetha Schwind were most likely married before 1730, when their oldest child was christened, so the date of 1733 is probably wrong.
I hope this helps someone trying to find a connection "across the water." Note that I posted Schwind ancestry for Anna Elisabetha on this forum.
