From Linda Meyers' research: The Indian problem the Tulpehocken Region was experiencing may have had an influence on Johann Adam Anspach's decision to take his family to Ohio in 1804 to take advantage of his land grant. In 1801 he moved his family to Lancaster Co. PA, and in 1804, when his children were ages 24-4, he moved to Ohio and settled in New Reading township. The farm was one half mile southwest of New Reading, Perry County, Ohio. He purchased property in Section One for $5 per acre.
