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.

Samuel Hatt, 1769-1772, freeman
Henry Hatt, 1772-1773, freeman

Earl Twp. Tax Records: NONE

The Hatt family disappears from the area. They likely migrated elswhere.

Is George Hatt the same person as George Halt, who had two sons baptized at Muddy Creek Lutheran in the mid-late 1740's? It appears so--Messners sponsor all children at baptism.

Nothing found-Conrad Hoat is assumed to be Conrad Haat-who is not found in tax records.

--It appears that George & Conrad Haatt--perhaps brothers--immigrated prior to 1738. I have yet to find any possibilities in Strassburg & Hinke.

Note: Hart and Hatt families are mixed in abstracted records below. I recommend reviewing ALL and searching for Hatz/Hart/Hatt together.

1757 Lunenburg Victualling List
Alphabetical List of Names

Compiled by Chris Young

This is a list of foreign and other settlers victualled at Lunenburg between 24 January and 25 May, 1757. The original list may be found in Appendix B of a Report Board of Trustees of the Public Archives of Nova Scotia 1936 for year 1937 pp 20-33. This index was prepared from a typed list dated March 1967 and on file at The South Shore Genealogical Society. RH Campbell makes the note �It seems that the 1757 list in the Archives Report has been Anglicized somewhat by the people themselves or by the original copyist.�

Where a family (e.g. ACKER) appeared in multiple places throughout the list, a separate line is given for each family, and in the order in which they appeared.

The original text said 1313 names; there are 1298 names here.

Andreas Kautz lived just across the Rhine River from Bischwiller in Baden. In 1751, he married Maria Elisabeth Hugel at Bischwiller Lutheran. They went to America in 1752 with a large emigrant party from the vicinity of the Northern Alsace.

I could not find Andreas Kautz in American records after his arrival. If he died, then his widow Anna Elisabeth may have married Christopher Jung in 1755 (see the Philadelphia Lutheran records below).

Philadelphia (St. Michael’s) Lutheran KB, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, USA:

Married 27 November 1755: Christopher Jung and Widow Maria Elisabeth Kautz. Witnesses: Henrich Jung, Moses Kok [?], Jacob Jung Jr., and Philip Jung.

in politics, and being of German descent, were naturally inclined to be
farmers, and dealers in the finest draft horses of their time, and in this
their superior judgment has always been commented on.

Descendant Register, Generation No. 5

5. Maria Margaretha Spahr (Johann Frederick Spahr4, Maria Catrina Kauffman3, Anna Maria Buehler2, Agatha Marie1) was born 14 OCT 1766 in Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and died 4 JUN 1841 in Port Royal, Juniata County, Pennsylvania. She was buried in Old Hill Cemetery, Port Royal, Juniata County, Pennsylvania. She married Johannes Zulauf 28 MAR 1783 in Spies Church, Alsace Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, son of Walter Zulauf. He was born 1753 in Elberfeld, Germany, and died 23 MAY 1838 in Milford Township, Juniata County, Pennsylvania.

Child of Maria Margaretha Spahr and Johannes Zulauf is:
+ 6 i. David Zulauf was born 15 NOV 1799 in Newberry Township, York County, Pennsylvania, and died 19 MAR 1875 in Milford Township, Juniata County, Pennsylvania.

For over a year Johannes Zulauf was classified as a POW in Reading, during which time he and three other men served as attendants to the two Minnegerode Company officers, Captain Wiederhold and Lieutenant Breide. As officers' attendants, they would have been in the private employ of the officers, would essentially have been civilians with a pseudo-military status, and would not have worn military uniforms. Johannes' duty with these officers ended when the officers were exchanged and returned to New York Island (Manhattan) in November 1780, at which time Johannes remained in Reading. Between that time and 1783 his name appears on a few Hessian rosters with the consistent notation, "POW, Location unknown." His name does not appear on the rosters drawn up in the Summer of 1783 in preparation for return of the Hessians to their homeland.

Pastoral records explain what Johannes was doing instead of answering the musters that rounded up Hessian POWs for return to their homeland. Johannes' marriage record, written by Reformed Pastor William Boos and dated 28 March 1783 (pastoral acts book preserved in Reformed Church Archives, Schaff Library, Lancaster, Pa.), states Johannes was then a resident of Brecknock Twp., which lies adjacent to Robeson Twp. in Berks Co. His wife was Maria Margaretha Spahr, daughter of Johann Frederick and Anna Margaretha (Schnaeder) Spahr. The Spahrs were residents of Robeson Twp. according to tax records. Johannes' wife went by her middle name, Margaret. Her Spahr ancestry has been traced back to the late 15th C. in Germany and Switzerland. Tax records for 1783 and 1784 show Johannes was a farmer in Robeson Twp., Berks Co. On these records his name is spelled "John Sulouf," the earliest known deviation from the earlier surname spellings, Zulauf and Zulauff.

Johannes and his wife had at least a son, Jacob, and a daughter, Mary, born in Berks Co. before the family moved west across the Susquehanna River to northern York Co., Pa. in late 1791. A 1792 deed (preserved in Pennsylvania Archives, Harrisburg Pa.) shows that 142 acres in Newberry Twp., York Co., had been conveyed to Johannes on 11 March 1791. Since ownership of this acreage was transferred from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, we presume Johannes built the 2-story log house situated on the property. The house is still in use at 471 Ironstone Road, which now lies in Fairview Twp., York Co. The old log house now serves as the front portion of a frame building that triples the size of the original residence. The 1798 federal 'glass' tax return listed the Zulauf house at this location as 18'x15' and the barn as 31'x20'. This listing in the 1798 federal 'glass' tax appears to indicate that the house had glass panes in the windows rather than the translucent window coverings of vellum or oiled paper which, at that date, were more frequently used for homes built in that area. The 1800 census shows Johannes with wife, five boys, and four girls in the Zulauf household at this location.

QUESTION: Did Thomas, the father, die circa 1781? His son Melchor's marriage record identifies him as deceased. If so, the Thomas Segner whose LWT was proven in 1794 is his son. Must verify that two Thomas Segner's existed.

The surname appears as Sechler, Segner, or Sigler--there may be other combinations starting with Z.

In reply to: Re: Stickler/Stichler/Stigler in PA 1700s John Schmeeckle 2/25/13

This just in:

Johann Christoph Stiegler married Elisabeth Gertraud Geyer on 21 Apr. 1724 at Höchstenbach in the Palatinate area of Bavaria.The births of nine children are recorded at Höchstenbach.“Several Geyer's were sponsors at some of the baptisms including ‘Johan Bastgen Geyer’ at the baptism of the 4th son, Johann Sebastian Stiegler. The relationship of the mother, Elisabeth Gertraud Geyer, to the other Geyers is not stated.”(per

Johann Christoph Stiegler was a sponsor at the baptism of Johan Bastgen Geyer’s daughter Eva Margaretha in 1731 at Höchstenbach, and Elisabeth Gertraud Stiegler was one of the sponsors at the baptism of Johann Bastgen Geyer’s daughter Elisabetha Maria in 1734 at Höchstenbach.Johann Georg Stiegler (the 13-year-old eldest son of Johann Christoph Stiegler?) was one of the three sponsors at the 1738 baptism of Johann Bastgen Geyer’s son Johannes Peter.

“Johann Christoph Stiegler of Höchstenbach sold his estate for 170 Rthlr. and moved to America in 1744.”Johann Christoph Stiegler brought his family to Pennsylvania on the ship Aurora, and Johann Bastgen Geyer brought his family to Pennsylvania at the same time on the same ship.The Stiegler family was on the ship as follows (with ages for the children):

Johann Christoph Stiegler
Elisabetha Gertraud
Johannes Georg, 19
Elisabetha Catharina, 15
Johann Sebastian
Johann Jacob, 10
Kunigunda Elisabetha, 8
Anna Maria, 6
Elisabetha Gertraud, 5

According to the law at the time, male immigrants aged 16 and over had to take an oath of allegiance to the King of England upon arrival in the American colonies,so Johann Christoph Stiegler and his son Johann Georg took the oath at Phildelphia on 8 Oct. 1744.

On 9 Sept. 1748: Christ’r Stiegalaar received a warrant for 100 acres of land in Lancaster County.

Christoph Stiegler had three sons, George, Sebastian, and Jacob.

George was born in 1725, and I'm pretty sure he and his brother Jacob are the George and Jacob Stigler/Stichler (etc.) who lived in Brecknock Twp., Lancaster County.George "Strickler" (I'm sure this is a misspelling, because there just weren't any Stricklers in Brecknock) made his will 9 March 1791 (probated 2 May 1791), mentioning wife Rosina and children George, Daniel, Jacob, Catharine wife of Julius Groves, Mary, Ludwig, Rosina, Barbara, Veronica, Magdalena and Elizabeth.Executors Rosina Strickler and Peter Frankhouser(in Abstracts of Lancaster County, Penn. Wills 1786-1820).George's son Ludwig ended up in Virginia, and I'm pretty sure that his son George was father of one of the two George Stichlers of Brecknock Twp. in the 1800 census, both of whom apparently moved to Stark county, Ohio.

Sebastian Stiegler was born about 1731.On 17 Aug. 1758 "Johann Sebastian Stiegler” married Catharina Margrethe Seidenbinder.The wedding was performed at the “Moden Creek” (Muddy Creek) church in East Cocalico Twp., Lancaster County, Pennsylvania by the Rev. John Caspar Stoever.Several months later his brother Jacob was married at the same church by the same minister.
Sebastian Stickler appears on a (tax?) list in 1783 in Shenandoah County, Virginia.

Jacob Stiegler was born about 1735, and married Maria Catharine "Stobler" (probably should be "Stober" on 13 Nov. 1758.Jacob appears on a number of records in Brecknock Twp.He made his will at Brecknock on 10 Jan. 1793 (probated 28 Feb. 1793), listing children Jacob, George, Catharine and Mary.Executors were Christian Lessle and Christopher Hess (per Abstracts of Lancaster County, Penn. Wills 1786-1820, p. 207).I'm inclined to guess that Jacob was the father of the other George Stichler who appears in Brecknock in the 1800 census, later moving to Stark Co., Ohio.

I suspect that either Jacob or George was the father of a John Stiegler (etc.), born about 1760, adult in 1781, and apparently dead by 1790, when "Widow Stigler" appears on the census page next to Jacob and George, with two sons under 16.I now suspect that this John Stigler was the father of Jacob and John Stichler (Stickler) of Richland Co., Ohio.(New information has forced me to abandon my earlier supposition [see previous post] that the father of Jacob and John was a Steckley).

Christoph Stigler, 1750-1756, 100A
George Stigler, 1756-1789+, 100A

"NICHOLAS MYERS, wife and sons migrated from Amsterdam, Holland, in 1753, and located in Lancaster County, Penn.; ten years later Nicholas bought 900 acres of land in Adams County and moved to the tract, building near Round Hill, in the vicinity of York Sulphur Springs. Their children were John, Jacob, David, William, Ludwick, Nicholas, Jr., Elizabeth, Susan, Margaret J. and Mary. John, the eldest, was born in Amsterdam, married Miss Sherman, of York county, and had issue. Jacob, our subject’s grandsire, was born in 1760, married Hannah Smith, and in 1796 removed to Canowago Mills, and later to New Chester. Their children were John, Philip, Henry and Elizabeth. The father lived to be eighty-five and the mother seventy-five years of age, and their remains were interred in the Bermudian Cemetery...."

See York newspapers for burial of Mrs. Hollinger, wife of Valentin Hollinger, in January 1836. It is believed that her tombstone in Mummert's cemetery--which gives the death date as 17 January 1856--is errant and should read 17 January 1836. Age at death: 66 years, 10 months, 21 days, which extrapolates to a birth date of 27 February 1769.

The newspaper burial record gives her death as "Wednesday last." Newspaper dated 27 January 1836.

Jacob Koger was appointed as administrator of his [his brother Nicholas's] estate. It took Jacob ten years to settle this estate. On May 24th of 1753, Jacob Koger made a report to the Court of Orange County stating that he had traveled twice to Pennsylvania to settle the estate of his brother. He also states that he had paid to the widow, Mrs. Elizabeth Koger, her part of her husband's estate, "that being her dower." On the same day, he entered into an agreement with Thomas Macredie to pay b. 59.12.3 by June 1, 1754, to the orphans of Nicholas Koger as their part of their father's estate.

--Their right & title to 209A, 131P Heidelberg Township, it being one moiety of four contiguous tracts: HISTORY: On 30 July 1741, David Levenstein, the elder, obtained a patent dated 30 July 1741 for 130A Heidelberg Township, adjoining George Knap, Michael Bright, Jacob Becker, and Andrew Ellick (Ref. Patent A-9-346). By another patent dated 16 Aug 1763, the said David Levenstein obtained right to three contiguous tracts or parcels of land situate in Heidelberg Township described as follows: (1.) 30A Heidelberg tp., adjoining vacant land and David Levenstein’s other land; (2.) 28.40A Heidelberg tp., adjoining vacant land and Andrew Illick; and (3.) 21A, 90P Heidelberg tp., adjoining David Levenstein’s other land and George Miller [Ref.

By his last will & testament written in the German language, dated 22 Aug 1789, David Levenstein, the younger, directed that his son-in-law Frederick Miller should take possession of the plantation “whereon I dwell.” He added: “It is my will and I give and bequeath unto my beloved daughter Elizabeth the said plantation unto her and her children….” The plantation referred to in the last will and testament was the same land as the aforesaid four contiguous tracts or pieces of land, which he did bequeath to his daughter Elizabeth, the wife of the said Frederick Miller. Thereafter, the said Elizabeth Miller died without children or any issue. Whereupon and by reason and means whereof the above described four contiguous tracts descended to her two sisters, to wit: the above-named Anna Mary Becker and Catharine, the wife of John Royer.
Frederick Miller has since sold his estate, title, and interest in the four contiguous tracts to the said John Royer. On equal date herewith, the said John Royer & his wife Catharine granted 135A Heidelberg Township (part of the aforesaid tracts) to George Becker, the first party hereto. [Additional details follow.]

David Davies received land in Earl tp. from his father Evan [who had the original warrant in his name]. The connection with the David Davies in Caernarvon tp. and Amity tp. is based solely on his wife's given name, which is uncommon in the region at that time.

1751-1762: Earl tp. [apparently taxed as "Red David Davis"--usually on 200A]
1762-1767: Caernarvon tp.

According to an abstract of his father's last will & testament, David received his father's 400A plantation [he being the eldest son].

David Musselman Family of Hempfield tp.

Hempfield tp. tax records:
David Musselman, 1751-1763, 200A
David Musselman, 1770-1783, 250A
Christian Musselman, 1773-1777 (freeman '73-75; junior '76; listed twice '76) [see Deed R394; later presumed to be in Warwick, then Manor]

ANALYSIS: David Musselman of Hempfield tp. received his father's plantation (see Christian Musselman's last will & testament dated 29 June 1734). David was not taxed in 1726; therefore, one might presume his date of birth circa 1706-1713. Deed Z415 states that David Musselman died intestate leaving two sons, David & Christian. Deed U134, in which Christian releases his right & title unto his said brother, confirms only two heirs. There is no reason to suppose any other children.
Curiously, David, Sr., does not appear in intestate records or the intestate index. He signed a 1766 release for his brother Peter's land (see Deed M3-542); however, he does not appear in 1769 tax records. A death circa 1767-1768 is presumed. Both of David's children can be followed definitively in deed records. Son David is included in the analysis below. See Christian Musselman of Manor tp. for the other child.
David Musselman moved to Bedford (now Huntingdon) County circa 1784. He was murdered by a robber in January 1787 while traveling between Camp Hill and Carlisle. See Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage, January 1789, p. 21, for proof of migration and death. The researcher indicates that estate records prove David's migration, marriage, and murder.


This indenture proves the spouse of son David Musselman, Jr.:

AA-456: David Musselman, yeoman, & his wife Barbara of Hempfield tp. [she being a daughter of Daniel Neff, deceased, late of Manor tp.] Henry Neff [eldest son of said Daniel Neff, deceased]
150a Manor tp.: HISTORY: It being the same tract as given in the preceding indenture.

Death Registers of the Ephrata Cloister:

Weydebachin , Sister Eimicke^ wife or widow of Philip Hanselman. " On the 24th (of) October in the Lord fell asleep ; her age was 70 years. She was once (a) very devout, God-fearing widow, who had already much in Germany suffered." (She came to the Community together with the wife of Christopher Sauer).

Note: Sachse added that she was the wife or widow of Philip Hanselman. The Death Register abstracts available to me only give her name as "otherwise Weydebachin."

« Diderich Marchal, 29 ans » :

Un bon candidat serait en théorie Didier Marchal, né le 5 12 1706 à Waldersbach de Marchal Jean-Jacques et Bernard Marie-Salomé ; pas d'acte de décès au Ban de la Roche ; x Sara Banzet le 9 9 1732 à Waldersbach .

Cependant, j'hésite fortement à faire, du Didier Marchal du Ban de la Roche, le Diderich Marchal de la Princess Augusta. En effet, un Bandelarochois est en principe protestant. Or, nous trouverons des Marchal en Amérique à Pigeon Hill, dans ce qui est en principe une colonie catholique. Mystère, mystère …

Cependant, à toutes fins utiles, j'indique ci-dessous l'ascendance du Didier Marchal du Ban de la Roche :

Généalogie de Didier Marchal : 1 Marchal Didier ; 2 Marchal Jean-Jacques ; 3 Bernard Marie-Salomé ; 4 Marchal Dimanche ; 5 Loux Dimanchette (Mougeotte) ; 6 Bernard Didier ; 7 Caquelin Catherine ; 8 Marchal Nicolas ; 9 Steff Odile ; 10 Loux Nicolas ; 11 Christmann Christine ; 12 Bernard Jean ; 13 Millan Catherine ; 14 Caquelin Didier ; 15 Vonier Marguerite ; 16 ? ; 17 ? 18 Steff Etienne ; 19 Charpentier Catherine ; 20 ; 21 ; 22 ? ; 23 ? ; 24 Bernard Dimanche ; 25 ? ; 26 Millan Nicolas ? ; 27 ? ; 28 Caquelin Nicolas
Généalogie de Sara Banzet : : 1 Banzet Sara ; 2 Banzet Jean ; 3 Verly Anne-Marie ; 4 Banzet Christophe ; 5 Neuviller Jeanne ; 6 Verly David ; 7 Becker Barbe ; 8 Banzet Jandon (Jean) ; 9 Apfel Marthe-Anne ; 10 Neuviller Jean ; 11 Thon Marie ; 12 Verly Jean : 13 Stoll Christine 14 ; Becker Pierre ; 15 Eichelberger Véronique ; … 20 Neuviller Joseph ; 22 Ringelsbach Anne ; 23 Thon Jean

Dans l'hypothèse où Didier Marchal ne serait pas du Ban de la Roche même, il importe de noter que ce nom et ce prénom sont très courants dans la région.

Didier Marchal meurt vraisemblablement pendant la traversée. En effet, noté malade sur une des listes du capitaine, il est absent de la liste d'immigrants finalement soumise à l'approbation de la Cour.

Marschall, Dieterich (I19420)
Died intestate, in the county of Lancaster, Province of Pennsylvania, in 1739. Letters of administration were granted March 17, 1739, to his widow Isabelle, John Sterrett and Andrew Mayes, sureties. No children mentioned.

First appearance on 10 October 1747 Lancaster Lutheran communicant list where he is identified as a servant of Huberin [Mrs. Huber].

A Georg Muckenberger arrived at Philadelphia on 9 October 1747 on board the Ship Restauration. I otherwise do not see the surname in Philadelphia passenger lists.
