Hermann MENGEL died before 1740 Stadecken,1 (now) Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany.
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 likley that Anna
Margaretha was Wilhelm's mother, and that they had only recently moved
In 1753 the Schultheiß and gericht at Gönnheim reported that Wilhelm MENGEL
and Johann Georg BECKER with their wives and chidren 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
