Honest and industrious people.
"I.I.I" means the emigrant party consisted of one adult male, one adult female, and one minor child.  It's very odd for a couple in their 40s/50s to have only one (very young) child.  I suspect the daughter, Anna Maria, was not baptized as an infant.

Hans Heinrich SPARR

Heinrich can't have been baptized before he was born, so one or both of these dates is wrong.
