Hermann MENGEL died before 1740 Stadecken,1 (now) Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany.
  He married:
Anna Margaretha born about Jan. 1667;1 bur. 9 Oct. 1740 Gönnheim1

  They are probably the parents of:

Johann Wilhelm MENGEL was born about 17115 (Stadecken?), (now)
  Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany.  He died after 177814 and before 27 Apr. 1780
  in Warwick Twp., Lancaster Co., PA when his will was probated.3  
  His first wife was Anna Sara who was buried on 11 Feb. 1749 at
      He secondly married at Gönnheim on 1 Oct. 1749 to
  Anna Catharina, the widow of the deceased Conrad STAMM of Biebelnheim.59
  She had married at Biebelnheim on 24 Apr. 1743 as Catharina, the
  daughter of Stephan HIRSCHNERS of Stadecken to Conrad STAMM as his
  second wife.4 Stadecken is about 8 miles north of Biebelnheim.
  She was living as of 1781.14
  Wilhelm's first appearance at Gönnheim was for the burial of his daughter
  in 1740. The only earlier mention of MENGEL in the Gönnheim records was a
  month earlier when Anna Margaretha, age 73 years, nine months, less quite
  a few days, the surviving widow of Hermann MENGEL, former citizen and
  inhabitant of Stadecken was buried.1  It would seem likely that Anna
  Margaretha was Wilhelm's mother, and that they had only recently moved
  to Gönnheim.  
  In 1753 the Schultheiß and gericht at Gönnheim reported that Wilhelm MENGEL
  and Johann Georg BECKER with their wives and children had moved to Pennsylvania
  without approval, as they were having to account for why no departure taxes
  had been collected.6  Both men were adjacent signers as having arrived on the
  ship Peggy on 24 Sep. 1753 at Philadelphia.5

At a court of Oyer and Terminer 20 June 1829 for the trial of Gabreil, a Negro man slave the property of Peter Kincer charged with on or about 17 April having committed or attempted to commit a rape on Rosanna Green, a white girl. Said Gabriel pleaded not guilty. The opinion of the court is he is guilty and to hanged by the neck until he be dead on Friday 7 Aug. at two in the afternoon. Following testimoney was given. Rosanna Green stated she was in the barn on the hay loft where she had been sent by Mrs. Kincer to hunt for eggs when Gabriel took hold of her and put his hand on her mouth and carried her to the end of the barn, threw her down on the hay and with his other had unbuttoned his breeches and attempted to have his will of her but did not succeed, that she told a negro woman named Rachel belonging to Peter Kincer. She stated she is upwards of 11 years old, her father and mother are both dead, and she lives with Peter Kincer & wife whom she calls father and mother and when examined before George W. Davis, Esqr. who issued the warrant for apprenhending Gabriel she then said the prisoner had succeeded in committing the act that she then thought so but was better informed afterwards from a conversation with Mrs. Kincer and that there was something upon her resembling the white of an egg after the attempt on the part of the prisoner. Rachel a slave the property of Peter Kincer says that some time ago Rosanna Green came to her and told her that if mamma (meaning Mrs. Kincer) did not make Gabriel let her alone he would not like it, the witness asked said Rosanna what Gabriel had done who stated that Gabriel had tried to have to do with her in the hay loft she appeared angry but afterwards got in a good humour, her hair was not rumpled, she was not crying. The witness examined the linen of the said Rosanna, it was some what stained, the stain had the appearance of milk, she considers the said Rosanna Green to be a girl of bad character, having heard from a girl in the neighbourhood say the said Rosanna had behaved badly with a black boy. Milly a slave the property of Peter Kincer sayd that on the Friday before Easter, Rosanna Green told the witness that Gabriel had to have do with her in the hay loft, that she had stains on her linen which had the appearance of milk, witness saw the same appearance on the linen last week, the witness said the said Rosanna is in the habit of telling stories both in family and the neighbourhood and it is said by the neighbours that the said Rosanna is not virtuous. Solomon Kegley says he was at the house of Peter Kincer on the day when Rosanna Green charged the prisoner and heard Rosanna Green say that the prisoner had threatened to kill her if she told. Peter Kincer says that on the Friday before Easter he was told by one the of negro women that Rosanna Green had charged the prisoner with treating her badly and that the witness was drinking at the time of hearing it and became mad, irritated and threatened to kill the prisoner and had never heard of a charge of a similar nature made against the prisoner who he has owned for about 14 years, he being now about 40 years old, that he has raised Rosanna Green and considers her to be a girl of bad character, telling lies and making mischief in the neighbourhood and that the brother of the witness who raised the prisoner had given him a good character witness for the prisoner. Catharine Kincer says she was at the house when Rosanna Green returned from the barn on Good Friday having been sent there to get eggs, that when she came to the house she saw nothing in her appearance uncommon that the said Rosanna Green is a girl of bad character, as a black guard, and in the habit of telling stories. That she heard the witness tell her story before the magistrate and that she told the same story except before the magistrate she stated that the prisoner succeeded in his attempt. Joseph Atkins says he has been acquainted with Rosanna Green for some years, she having been raised near the residence of the witness, that he considers her to be a girl of bad character on account of telling lies, that the said Rosanna Green differed in giving her testimony before the magistrate. It has been stated that the said Rosanna Green has had intercourse with a negro boy in the neighbourhood about 6 years old. Alfred Atkins says that on Thursday last he had heard Rosanna Green on being asked by the witnesses mother if she would swear the the same that she had sworn against the prisoner if she had it to do again say that she would not. Lewellen Rice says that Rosanna Green has been a scholar at the school taught by the witness and considers her to have a bad character as a girl of truth. John Killinger says that he asked Rosanna Green if the prisoner did or did not, she answered he did not. William Mingle says that he is the uncle of Rosanna Green and applied to the Justice for a warrant against the prisoner that Catharine Kincer appeared very angry with the witness for having done so, and said it would break them up; the witness is the brother in law of the said Catharine Kincer. 23.
