York Moravian church records, August 17, 1778. 5:45 a.m. "Died Franz Ludwig Berot, descendant of a family adhering to the Evangelical religion which fled from France at the time of the persecution, and one of the first fruits of the Congregation of Brethren that gathered here, aet 79-6-18. Buried August 18 in the presence of a large concourse of people."
Several of Franz Ludwig Beroth's children came to North Carolina.
Johannes Beroth was one of the 11 original Wachovia settlers who arried in November 1753. At some point he returned to Pennsylvania, where he married Catharina Neumann in July 1758, and returned to NC with her in May 1759.
Previously we listed the oldest child in this family as Anna Barbara, born about 1723, died 1759, who married Hermannus Loesch in 1758, and another daughter Johanna Barbara Beroth (1729-1759). The death dates given for these two children are identical, and we suspect that these are actually the same person. Since the 1729 birthdate is exact (December 12, from baptismal records), we have taken that as the more likely. Possibly there was an older Anna Barbara, but if so, we think she may have died in childhood, and that the one who married Hermannus Loesch is the one born in 1729. Can anyone give us additional information to confirm or negate this hypothesis?
