  • Notes 
    • Wendel Baumann, "the original settler of this family, came to Pennsylvania at a very early date. He was born in Switzerland about the year 1681. When about seventeen years of age, he in company with his parents, moved to Holland where they had the promise of protection from the persecuting parties of southern and central Europe, by William Prince of Orange, afterwards William III of England. Here the old progenitor lived until the beginning of the seventeenth (18th!) century, when he set his face for America. He landed safely at Philadelphia but the date of the landing (1704) is not known. We find that in 1709 a number of families moved westward from Philadelphia, seeking a tract of land where they might settle in one vicinity. The choice of their location was on a tract situated north of Pequea Creek, extending to the Conestogo (Their settlement was Strasburg Tp., Chester Co., now West Lampeter Tp., Lancaster Co.) containing ten thousand acres of land. The warrant for this was recorded and the land surveyed to them on October 23rd, 1710. Among these settlers we find the name of Wendel Baumann. All efforts made to obtain the date of his death or to whom he was married proved fruitless. So much, however, has been obtained that he had a family of seven sons and one daughter. The names of the sons were Christian, Peter, John, Jacob, Michael, Benjamin, Joseph, and Magdalena, married to Jacob Groh, father of the late Abraham Groh, and grandfather of John Groh of Hespeler, Ontario."
