My records show the following:
Johannes Wildfang listed as an adult on St. Andrews Galley Ship. Wife Elizabeth Wildfang was listed on ship roster with their sons under 16 years of age (Sons George Michael & johannes Sebastian. The adults took an oath of allegiance to the King of England at the courthouse in Philadelphia, PA on the day of their arrival. The family lived in Berks County, PA. On March 16, 1747, son George Michael married Sophie Catarine Veithelm at Tulpehocken, Berks County, PA. They then moved to the mouth of the Brushy Fork and the South Fork Rivers in Virginia. George Michael changed his name to "Michael" and with Sophie had 13 children. Magdaline, Jacob, Henry, Barbara, John, George, Mary, Michael (II), Elizabeth Catherine, Anna Marie Margartha, Eva, Sarah, Christina.
Hope this helps?
I don't have anything further back. If you find, please let me know, thanks
