I'm searching for the same type of information, except for daughter Magdalena from his second wife.

Here's what I have so far. If you have anything else to pass along (since the posting was a couple of years ago), I'm much appreciate it! Happy family hunting!

Descendants of Henry Wallbridge, who married Anna Amos
December 25th, 1688 at Preston, Conn. : with some of the
allied families of Brush, Fassett, Dewey, Fobes, Gager, Lehman,
Meech, Safford, Scott. Wallbridge, William Gedney,.
Philadelphia. Press of Franklin Print. Co.. 1898.
Godfrey Lehman, b. Oct. 9, 1688 (new style), at 7 A. M., at Putzkon, d. at Germantown, Pa., Oct. 4, 1756. In 1711 he became a citizen of Dresden, purchasing a house and lot before the Wilsdorf Gate near the King’s shooting house (Dresden was then the royal residence of Augustus II, King of Poland and Elector of Saxony). On Nov. 15, 1712, he m. Anna Sophia Kutchie (Kutsher), who was born June 15, 1684, d. April 9, 1721, and was buried in St. Anne’s churchyard in the suburbs of Dresden. Her father was Christopher Kutchee, b. 1618, at Hirschfeldt, in Upper Lusatia, Saxony, and served for ten years in the cavalry of Gustavus Adolphus. Her mother was Anne Elizabeth Kramer, b. in the city of Radesburg, Saxony, in 1645, d. at Dresden 1728, dau. of Bartholomew Kramer, Electoral Comptroller of the Customs of the Elector of Saxony in the city of Radesburg.
The chi. of Godfrey Lehman by his first wife were:
1. Godfryd Henry, b. Aug. II, 1713, d. 1714.

After his wife’s death he removed to the town of Herrnhuth, belonging to the famous religious Count Nicholas Lewis, of Zinzendorf, in the Marquisate of Upper Lusatia, 50 miles from Dresden. Being there persecuted by the Moravians, Godfrey and his sons, Christian and John, aged 16 and 14 years, came to Pennsylvania, leaving Dover Aug. 15 and arriving at Philadelphia Oct. 13, 1731. On the 31st of that month he moved to Germantown, and bought a house.

Discussion of Germantown and
marker for (Botfried) Godfried Lehman
There is a quaintly inscribed stone covering the remains of the ancestors of the Lehman family. It was found where Charles Weiss' coal yard is now situated, and the bones with the stone were removed to this place. It
reads: "Here lieth the body of Botfried Lehman, the late owner of this ground, who was born at Putzkon, near the city of Dresden, in Saxony, in Germany, in Europe, and departed this life here in Germantown, October 4, A. D. 1756, aged 67 years, 12 month(sic) and 25 days.

I think this means that Gotfried Lehman owned the coal yard area later bought by Charles Weiss rather than cemetery property.

Son Christian
born in Dresden, and settled in Germantown
Name: Christian LEHMAN

Birth: 7 Nov 1714 in Dresden, Germany
Death: 28 Dec 1774 in Germantown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,

Marriage 1 Elizabeth FENDE b: Abt 1726
Married: 2 May 1751 in Germantown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,

May be the Johannes Lehman who traveled on the Adventure with Stutzmans, Millers, and Ullerichs.
