The spelling adopted is EISENBEIS to avoid duplication. Only a few names are reported correctly.  I beg your pardon. Example: search forJohn Isenbise, write John Isenbise & John Eisenbeis. A quick way is to check the name of the wife.

    According to

Present: William Peters, Esquire The Foreigners whose names are underwriten, imported in the Ship Neptune, John Mason, Commander, from Rotterdam & last from Cowes, did this day take the usual Qualifications & subscribe them. By List 144. Whole Freights 300. Messrs. Shoemaker. Melchior Trautman Johann Petter Trautmann Johan Leonhart Trautman
    And Also, according to
    Jacob Peterman, - Sept. 24, 1751, Ship Neptune, John Mason, Captain, of Rotterdam, last from Cowes
    Two different vessels named NEPTUNE arrived at Philadelphia in September 1751 carrying German immigrants: (1) the ship NEPTUNE, Capt. James Wier, from Cowes and Rotterdam, whose male passengers aged 16 years and over took the oaths of allegiance, fidelity, and abjuration, on Monday, 23 September, and (2) the ship NEPTUNE, John Mason, Commander, from Rotterdam and last from Cowes, whose passengers qualified on Tuesday, 24 September. No complete list of passengers survives for either vessel. However, the signature lists of the male passengers aged 16 years and over who took the above oaths do survive in the Pennsylvania State Archive in Harrisburg. They have been published many times, most authoritatively in Ralph Beaver Strassburger, _Pennsylvania German pioneers; a publication of the original lists of arrivals in the port of Philadelphia from 1727 to 1808_, edited by William John Hinke, vol. 1, Pennsylvania German Society, Proceedings 42 (Norristown, Penn., Pennsylvania German Society, 1934), list 171C, pp. 466-467, and list 172C, pp. 467-469, respectively. There is, however, no reference to anyone with the surname GIFT on either list.
