Translation by Robert Seal
Waid = woad = a plant which is used to produce a blue dye.
See the following link: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/woad
In the section "Etymology", see the entry in the second line for German: "Waid".
The suffix "gesellen" indicates that the person is a journeyman in that industry.
So "Waidgesellen" is likely a journeyman in the dying trade.
Ernest Thode, German-English Genealogical Dictionary, page 272, defines the occupation "Waidner" as "dyer".
From an online list of old German professions:
German names for a "blue dyer (with the dye from the Waid): Blaudrucker, Blaufärber, Blauferber, Blaufeur, Bocker, Böcker, Waidfärber, Waidgießer, Waidner, Weidfärber, Weidgießer, Weidner."

My comment: The note in the left margin is difficult:
Vögelein. In the month of July 1850? _____ ______ to America ______ left behind? wife and child to join _____ 1000 Gulden? [signed] Bock, pastor.
A "Gulden" is a German coin. The question mark after the word "Gulden" in the note is that of the pastor himself.
Hpefully another community volunteer can decipher the note and fill in the blanks.
Translation by WSeelentag
I would read the pastor's second name as Ulf (Alf?).
The note in the left margin is difficult indeed - my attempt of a transcription:
nat Juli 1850 heimlich fort nach Amerika mit Hinterlass[ung] von Weib und Kind und Mitnahme mehrerer 1000 Gulden?
The question mark indicates that the writer is not sure (only) about the amount of money - he possibly just noted hear-say.
@Robert Seal_1 : would you, please, first check my transcription and then translate?
Translation by Robert Seal:
WSeelentag: Your transcription is accurate. Thank you for your assistance.
Kent: Here is how the note, based on Mr. Seelentag's transcription, translates:
In the month of July 1850 secretly left for America leaving behind wife and child and taking with him several 1000 Gulden? (This is referring to Gottlieb not his father.)
Translation by WSeelentag
Kent: "Margarita Barbara is illegitimate? That means she doesn't know who her mother or father is?"
No - she's not illegitimate - her maiden name is Illig 😉 ... according to this document. Jullig might have been given in another document (or misread).
