Johann Bernthal (07 April 1820-02 May 1905) was the oldest child of Georg Martin & Anna Barbara (Bloß) Bernthal. He was brother to Johann Leonhard Bernthal and Cunnigunda (Bernthal) Weber. His headstone is shared with his wife Kunigunde (Bierlein) (28 June 1827-07 August 1899). He came to Frankenmuth from Bavaria in 1846 with the second group of settlers which included his parents, the rest of his siblings, and his wife. Johann and Kunigunde married in Germany, along with several other couples bound for Frankenmuth, prior to their departure for America.
