  Research Notes:

Notes from a Pedigree Chart prepared by Donald W. Gold dated 25 Jul 1996:
"Anna, the sister of George, in 1727 had a pronounced religious experience under the preachings of Sussana Kuhnel and became a reader in a section of Saxony known as the 'Barony of the Rose.' The Moravian church sent out [immigrants] from [Herrnhut] as mentioned above. They had been granted concessions of land by the heirs of William Penn and they settled in eastern Pennsylvania near the present city of Bethlehem. The party arrived in May, 1749."
