Is Johan Anthon Ament by any chance related to Conrad Ament (1696-1773) of York County? I have seen Conrad's name spelled both Ament and Amman. He was born in Germany (undoubtedly the Palatinate), and immigrated to Paradise Township, York Co., PA where he married Maria Catherina Matheis. They had a son, Jacob Ament, and I have seen his name spelled both Ament and Ammon. He is NOT the one who came over from Zweibruecken on the ship Ann in 1749, nor is he the the one who came over on the Thistle of Glasgow from Rotterdam. He was born in Paradise Township, York Co., and married Maria Barbara Leib. Jacob's will from Washington Co., PA mentions children Adam, Conrad, Isaac, Jacob, Rebecca, Richard, John George, John Henry, John Jonas, and there is another John Henry who I don't believe is mentioned (all by the Ammon spelling by this time period). My ggggg-grandfather was Isaac Ammons of Greene Co (used to be part of Washington Co.), and his name has been spelled every way from Ammons to Almonds to Almons to Ammon to Amond. In a number of years, I haven't been able to find any evidence of anyone being his father, but now I believe it may be Jacob Ammon because of the will I found. Therefore now I am researching the Aments as a side project, so I was just wondering what you can tell me about the Aments of York Co.; where they came from, where they went to after York Co., etc.
