John and George's father (Michael) was born in Berkley Co., Va. in 1787. He was one of five children born to Johnan Michael and Catherine Elizabeth Schriner-Lohr. Michael's brother, George William Lohr is my g-g-g-grandfather.
Micheal's father, Johan Michael did serve in the revoluntary war. According to his declaration, he remembers his family moving to Washington County, Maryland from York, PA. when he was a child. Michael enlisted in the revolution in Washington County, MD.
After being discharged from the war, Michael and family first settled in Berkley Co., Va. then moving to Rockingham Co., Va. where he is died in 1835. Even though I have never located Johan Michael's burial site, I do suspect he is buried in the old cemetery at Rader's Lutheran Church in Timberville, Va. Church records of Rader's Lutheran Church mentions births/baptism for all 8 children.
Hope this was helpful. If you need more information, just respond.
