Generation No. 1

1. MICHAEL1 WOLFGONG was born Abt. 1720 in Stuttgart, Germany (probable), and died Bef. March 20, 1760 in Upper Milford Twp., Northampton Cty., PA. He married CHARLOTTE MARGRETTA KOPP Abt. 1747 in Emmaus, Northampton Cty., PA, daughter of SAMUEL KOPP and ANNA SHIFF. She was born December 30, 1731 in Sindelfingen, Wurtenburg, Germany, and died Bef. March 20, 1760 in Upper Milford Twp., Northampton Cty., PA.

Notes for MICHAEL WOLFGONG: from www.wolfgangs.org

1. Michael1 Wolfgang was born Stuttgart Germany about 1720. There is some mention of Gronigen, Netherlands but this may be his point of departure. Also, Stuttgart has a "sure level" of 1 meaning that there is no proof existing for this assertion. It is used only because no other researcher has offered a viable alternative.

The Michael Wolfgang accepted as the "original immigrant ancestor" first shows up on the passenger list of the ship "Saint Andrew" out of Rotterdam and Cowes under Capt. Robert Brown, arriving at the port of Philadelphia October 7, 1743. There was another Michael who arrived on the same ship 9 years earlier but his connection is not clear. Michael Wolfgang's age was listed as 23. From this we assume he was born in 1720. He signed the list with a distinctive "W" (his mark). Some reports say he was a potter by trade. He apparently settled in Macungie Twp., Northampton (now Lehigh) County, PA. Sometime around 1747 he married Charlet Margretta Kopp. She was born December 30, 1732 in Sindelfingen, near Stuttgart, Wurttemburg, Germany and had immigrated with her parents

He married Charlotte (Charlet) Margretta Kopp about 1747 in Emmaus, Northampton, PA. Charlet was born December 30, 1731 in in Sindelfingen, Wurttenburg, Germany. Charlet was the daughter of Samuel Eberhardt Kopp and Anna Catherine Shiff. Charlet died before March 20, 1760 in in Upper Milford Twp., Northampton (now Lehigh) Co., PA, at age 28.

He bought property November 16, 1750 in Upper Milford Twp., Bucks (now Lehigh) Co., PA.(3) On November 16, 1750, Michael Wolfgang was granted a warrant to an "improvement" of 144 acres plus sixty-seven perches in Upper Milford Twp., Bucks (now Lehigh) Co., which was surveyed on Aug. 15, 1751. The Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike now runs along this land. See "Documents" page this site.

Michael died before March 20, 1760 in Upper Milford Twp., Northampton (now Lehigh) Co., PA, at age 39. By some time prior to March 20, 1760 both Michael & Charlet Wolfgang had died, either through disease or possibly Indian attack. His body was interred before March 20, 1760 in Upper Milford Twp., Bucks (now Lehigh) Co., PA. Michael and Charlet were buried somewhere on their farm.

Michael's will was probated February 15, 1762 in Upper Milford Twp., Bucks (now Lehigh) Co., PA.(4) An inventory of the estate was filed by Sebastian Knauss and Daniel Dorney on March 28, 1760. Michael Wolfgang's farm had to be sold to pay off all his debts. Settlement of the estate was made Feb. 15, 1762 by Rudolph Kidweiler, minister and Dr. Huff for the children.

Children of MICHAEL WOLFGONG and CHARLOTTE KOPP are:

2. ii. JOHANN MICHAEL WOLFGONG, b. Abt. 1748, Upper Milford Twp., Northampton Cty., PA; d. 1808, Upper Mahantongo Twp, Berks Cty., PA.

Generation No. 2

2. JOHANN MICHAEL2 WOLFGONG (MICHAEL1) was born Abt. 1748 in Upper Milford Twp., Northampton Cty., PA, and died 1808 in Upper Mahantongo Twp, Berks Cty., PA. He married CHRISTINE WEAVER Abt. 1775, daughter of JOHANN WEAVER and MARIA HECHT. She was born January 18, 1756 in Franconia, Montgomery Cty., PA, and died 1815 in Upper Mahantongo Twp, Berks Cty., PA.

Notes for JOHANN MICHAEL WOLFGONG: from www.wolfgangs.org

3. Johann (John) Michael2 Wolfgang Jr (Michael1) was born in Upper Milford Twp., Northampton (now Lehigh) Co., PA about 1748. Michael died 1808 in in Upper Mahantongo (now Eldred) Twp., Berks (now Schuylkill) Co., PA, at age 60. His body was interred 1808 in Hegins Twp., Berks (now Schuylkill) Co., PA.(7)

He married Christine (Christina) Weaver about 1775. Christine was born January 18, 1756 in in Franconia, Montgomery Co., PA. Christine was the daughter of Johann Ehrenhard Weaver and Maria Magdalene Hecht. Christine died 1815 in Upper Mahantongo (now Eldred) Twp., Berks (now Schuylkill) Co., PA, at age 59. Waldner Aft. 1811

He was listed as a minor in orphan's court records March 20, 1760 in Easton, Northampton Co., PA.(8) He was listed as Jacob Hawn's ward 1760 in Easton, Northampton Co., PA. Since all of the children were under the age of fourteen at the time of their parents death, the Orphan's Court of Northampton Co. at Easton appointed neighbors Jacob Hawn (or Horn) and Michael Keiper as guardians. Both men requested a change of guardians in 1761. A Lewis Gordon petitioned the court March 25, 1761 because he had been appointed permanent guardian but Hawn and Keiper refused to "deliver them up to their said guardian unless he pay them a considerable sum of money". See Letters & Documents page of this site.

Michael was an apprentice 1762 in Upper Saucon Twp., Northampton Co., PA. Apprenticed to Johann Erhardt Weaver (1717-1795) who emigrated from Niefern, Pfarzheim, Baden, Germany in 1754 and settled in Upper Saucon Twp., Northampton Co., PA. He had anglicized the spelling from Weber. He was christened about 1771 in Salisbury Twp., Northampton (now Lehigh) Co., PA. We have no baptismal record for (John) Michael Wolfgang since the nearest Lutheran Church, Jerusalem Lutheran and Reformed in West Salisbury Twp., was not established until 1759.

Michael enlisted in the military August 6, 1776 in Whitehall Twp., Northampton Co., PA. (John) Michael Wolfgang served two enlistments in the Revolutionary War, listing Whitehall Twp., Northampton County, as his residence. From Aug. 6, 1776 to May 14, 1778 he was a Private, 5th Class, in Captain Christian Fisher's 7th Company, 2nd Battalion, Northampton County Militia, Commanded by Colonel Hart. In 1781-1782 he was a 2nd Corporal in the 11th Battalion of the Northampton Co. Militia under Lt. Col. Stephen Balliet. In 1782 he served as a Corporal in Captain Daniel Good's 3rd Company, 1st Battalion, Northampton County Militia when it was called up for 60 days of frontier duty.

Michael registered to pay taxes 1781 in Northampton (now Lehigh) Co., PA. Although not listed as owning land, Michael was taxed 12 pounds anyway, plus 3 pounds for one cow.

Michael registered to pay taxes 1783 in Northampton (now Lehigh) Co., PA. Listed as owning a 50 acre tract of land taxed at 25 pounds plus one horse at 6 pounds, and one cow at 3 pounds. The first record we have is the Orphan's Court at Easton for Northampton County guardianship proceedings on March 20, 1760. Thus we do not know his exact birth date, only that he was under fourteen years of age in 1760. These are the only records where the name John appears; all subsequent records simply refer to Michael Wolfgang. After being discharged from guardianship, probably around 1762 when he reached the age of fourteen, he learned the trade of a weaver.

His extensive Revolutionary War service did not prevent him from starting his large family. Eight children were baptized at the Jerusalem Lutheran Church in West Salisbury between 1777 and 1792. In 1783 he is listed as owning a 50 acre tract of land.

Sometime between 1792 and 1795 (John) Michael Wolfgang moved his family West to settle on a new farm in Upper Mahantongo Twp., Berks (now Schuylkill) County, PA. His next three children were baptized at Himmel's Lutheran Church in Rebuck, Washington Twp., Northumberland County, PA, the closest one at the time. (John) Michael Wolfgang died in 1808 and is buried in Frieden's Cemetary, Hegins Twp., Berks (now Schuylkill) County. His widow Christine is listed in the 1810 census, so died about 1811.
