From Monocacy and Catoctin, Vol 3 -

W&M-1613. John Alfred Koons (1826-1890) and wife Georgina Celstia (Miller) (1835-1888) are buried in Haugh's Church north of Woodsboro. Ancestor Heinrich Kuhns/Kuntz probably was a Palatine German who embarked for America from the Netherlands. It may have been his son Henry (over 45 years in 1800 census) who had 6 sons, including John Coones in Buckeystown District in 1800; also Abraham, Henry, and George of age 26-45 years in Taneytwon District in the 1800 census. George Koons (1753-1817) who married Susannah Stroyer (1760-1848) is buried at Taneytown Reformed Church. Their son Peter (1795-1876) and wife Mary Ann (Ott) (1803-1866) are busied at Haugh's Church. They were parents of John Alfred Koons.

Descendent Carroll H. Hendrickson Jr. pointed out that the will of Henry Koons (died 1821) gives his children as Abraham; Henry Jr.; Jacob; deceased John, George, and William; Eve; Catherine; deceased Ann and Mary. Henry Sr., his sons George and Jacob, also Jacob Jr. were blacksmiths. Paul and Anna (Koons) Haugh had son William (1774-1845) who married Catherine Kemp (1777-1824). Their son David (1804-1878) and wife Abalonia (1803-1885) had daughter Mary Catherine Haugh (1833-1909) who married Daniel R. Hendrickson (1826-1898) (Mt. Olivet), a great grandfather of Carroll H. H. Jr.

In Adams Co., there have been numerous Kuhn familities and fewer Kuhns and Kuntz (WB). A Georg Kuntz, linen weaver, emigarted in 1732 from Hatten in northern Alsace. He married in 1720 Catherine Jaeger (b. 1690) (B3). Cf Weiser MHM 2,11 (1979) and W&M1517.

W&M1614. Peter Koons (1795-1876) married Anna Maria Ott (1803-1866) daughter of John Jacob (c 1754-1822) and Anna Maria (1767-1812). Jacob, a shoemaker, and wife were buried in the Ott family graveyard near Miller's Bridge and Detour.
