Michael or Johann Michael Kuhn (Coon), 1708, Germany

  of 1860

I'm looking for more information on Michael Kuhn (Coon), also possibly referred to as Johann Michael Kuhn. This is what I know:

1. Born in Germany about 1708.
2. Married Catherine Lail around 1729 in Germany.
3. Emigrated to Philadelphia around 1753 with his son Michael, Jr. Arrived in America aboard the ship Beulah.
4. On Sept. 22, 1763 Michael Coon was listed as a native of Germany and as having come into Open Court and was Naturalized in Rowan County, North Carolina according to the Law by taking the Oath of Allegiance.
5. Known children were Catherine, Annica, Christian, Margaret, Michael, Eve, Valentine, Anthony, and Mary.
6. Died on May 14 1765 in Rowan County, North Carolina.

I assume Michael was one of a large number of Kuhn's that emigrated from the Württemberg area of Germany to PA in the mid 1700's.

I'd appreciate any additional info you could provide on his ancestors in Germany. Thanks!
