Aubrey, I am attaching 2 pieces of info I have on Werner's father Johannas. Hope this keeps things going.

The following information is from the book "Eighteenth Century Emigrants From Langenselbold in Hesse to America" by Annette Kunselman Burgert, F.A.S.G., F.G.S.P.

Elizabeth, 1733
(with Margret Moon age 44, Maria Moon age 10, Matiles Moon age 8, Vernor Moon age 6, Conen Lutwick Moon 3 1\2)


Langenselbold Reformed KB:

Peter Mohn, son of the late Hans Mohn, m. 14 Apr. 1681 Margretha, daughter of Hans Rack, the Kloster Wirth.

Peter Mohn and Margreth had a son:
Johannes, bp. 2 Nov. 1701

Johannes Mohn, son of Peter Mohn, m. 4 Mar. 1722 Margretha, daughter of the deceased Melchior Hack of Lichenroth. Children:
1. Anna Maria, bp. 27 Feb. 1723
2. Johanna Magdalena, bp. 14 Mar. 1725
3. Worner, bp. 18 Dec. 1726
Sp.: Worner Mohn, here

In 1737, Johannas obtained a tract of one hundred seventy-four acres in Cumru (now Spring) Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. This area is now called Mohn's Hill. Later, in 1744, he obtained an additonal seventy-one acres. In 1750 he purchased from Dietrich Marshall forty-nine acres of land sutuated along the Cacoosing Creek in the vicinity of Fritztown, Pennsylvania. In 1758 he sold this tract to his son Ludwig, a farmer.

In his will, recorded in the "Abstracts of Berks County Wills", he left, "To son Ludwig the plantation whereon I now live in Cumru containing 245 acres, he paying legacies as follows: To son Werner Mohn L100, to dau. Magdalena, wife of George Hean L50, to dau Maria, wife of Jacob Ledy, L50. Remainder to son Ludwig. Friends Henry Christ and Samuel Weisner, executers. Witnesses Valentine Kerber, Geo. Geisler, George Wunder." {Included with the will, inventory, administrative records, etc., of the above was a one-page Guardianship Petition of David Moon and Sarah Moon, minor children above the age of 14 years of John Moon of Richmond Twp., Berks County, Pennsylvania. In this petition, it states that David and Sarah are heirs in part of the estate of their grandfather, George William Stout, and they wish the court ot assign their father, John Moon, to administer their portion of this estate. [David signed as "David Mohn"; Sarah made a mark over the name "Sarah Moone"]}
