    • 14. Johannes Stoehr.

      Johannes Stoehr, the son of Johannes Stoehr and Catharina Margaretha Elizabetha Dithmar, was born on 16 September 1687 at Rumbach in the State of Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. He was subsequently christened on 25 September 1687 in the Evangelisch Lutheran Church at Rumbach. Johannes, who was a nagler (nailsmith) by trade, left Germany as a young man and moved to the vicinity of Langensoultzbach in Bas-Rhin, France. He was later married to a woman named Anna Margaretha Dock (also written Docken). Although no record of their marriage has been found, it probably took place in France. According to the Heidelberg Moravian Church records, Anna Margaretha had been born during the month of May 1688, possibly in the Alsace region of France.

      According to available parish records, Johannes and Anna Margaretha were residing in Langensoultzbach during the early 1700's, where all of their children were christened. In 1737, however, they left France and emigrated to the New World. Johannes and Anna Margaretha, along with their two sons, and most likely their three daughters, arrived at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on 26 September 1737 aboard the ship "St. Andrew Galley."

      Sometime after their arrival, Johannes and Anna Margaretha settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where they appear to have resided for many years. Although Johannes is believed to have died in Lancaster County, the actual date of his passing has not been determined. It is known, however, that he preceded his wife in death. Anna Margaretha, on the other hand, died on 10 December 1753 in Berks County, Pennsylvania, the year after it had been formed from a portion of Lancaster County. She was subsequently buried in the Heidelberg Moravian Church Cemetery in Berks County.
