I am descended from a Hans Jacob Manni/Many, born 1661 or so in Germany who came to Philadelphia on the ship "Lydia" in 1741. He died 1764 in Northampton Co., PA.
His father was Jacob Manny, born 1666 in Dolen or Dotzigen in Canton Bern, Switzerland, died ~1724 Diedendorf, Germany or Alsace.
I am descended from his son Hans/Johann/Adam Many/Mani born 1724 in Diedendorf in Bas-Rhin in Alsace, Christened 1724 at the Deidendorf Reformed Church, d. 1780? Northampton Co, PA. He married Anna Maria Dorothea Odenwalder, born 1721 or so in Germany, married 1747 or so in Diedendorf or Alsace, and died in Northampton Co., PA. His siblings or descendents would be the right age to settle in NC in the 1760s, though I have not run into any yet.
Hans and Maria had a son named Hans Jacob Mauney/Manny born 1717 Alsace.
My family name became established as Mohney in the early 1800s.
