My MOHN / MOON family is German Luthern. Eve's father, Wernor, arrived in Berks Co., Pa., when he was 6 (1733) from Langenselbold, Hesse, Germany. Wernor and his family migrated south into Virginia, but I have many indications that they stayed long enough in Maryland to have at least 2 marriages. Eve and her brother Abraham, who married a SIXT / SIX family and later a HULL family. I do have church records of Abraham and my ancestor Georg at the New Jerusalem Evang. Luthern Church in Loudoun Co., Va. in the early 1790's. From there, my line moved to Western Pa. (where the MOHN became MOON) and the others moved to Garrett Co., Maryland. All of that to say, I guess, that I have no connection to the MOON's of Newport. My interest is in how and where did my Eve hook up with Jacob BRIGGS. I am trying to establish some firm evidence of my MOHN family staying in Maryland, particularily Frederick Co., in an attempt to find my Georg's wife's family, MARTIN. I have also come across documents recording the family name as MANN, which also helps in the confusion, and adds another dimension to my particular family search, because another German family came through Maryland at about the same time from the Jorg Bernhardt MANN line. His name is documented as MOHN in the ships records. Needless to say, I'm fishing for anything I can get my hands on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
