I have an ancestor, Henry Mong (l762-l846), who was a son of Geo. Nicholas Mong (l730-l792) and wife, Mary Catherine (approx.l730-l820). We show that they had nine children and one of them was Margaret (born Aug. of l760, married a Wendall Siebert,Jr. and died in l846). We show that the father, George Nicholas Von Mang [with two dots above the a] came to this country as a boy of 9 yrs. with his father, Gottfried Von Mang, from Palatinate, Germany, a province west of the Rhine River. They arrived in America on Sept. 3, l739, on the ship named Loyal Judith, having 3l5 passengers. They settled in Hagerstown, MD, which is in Washington Co. They were of the Lutheran faith.
