"Johann Heinrich Wilhelm, son of Hans Valentin Wilhelm and Anna Christina Fischer. Born 1 Feb 1713/4, in Finkenbach, Germany [according to the Lutheran Records of Finkenbach]. Died, circa 1748, in VA. [probably near 'Peaked Mt' now McGaheysville [Rockingham Co]). Psngr List: 16 Sep 1738 (Queen Elizabeth - Alexander Hope, Master). Immigration: 16 Sep 1738 (Landed in Penn.). In "Early Lutheran Baptisms and Marriages in Southeastern, Pa; The Records of Rev. John Casper Stoever From 1738 to 1779", it shows Heinrich marry first Catarina Harman (spelled Haermaennin) and then the birth of their two children (p 22):  Maria who was born 1741, sponsor Magdalena Homann, and  JOHAN PHILLIP born Jan 1743, sponsors Philipp Lorentz Houtz and wife. Catarina must have died in childbirth or shortly thereafter because then it shows Heinrich Wilhelm (p 60) on 23 Aug 1743 marrying Elizabeth Scherb. Heinrich and Elizabeth must have moved to Va. - the 'Peaked Mt.' area - and the church records there show two sons being born: Michael (1745) and George (1747). Then Heinrich must have died, because Elizabeth married Augustine Price and starts having children by him. Augustine and Elizabeth's first child is born 9 May 1750, a girl named Susanna. They have several more children. Heinrich's 3 orphan children: PHILIP, George, and Michael in 1757 were bound over to Augustine Price [Augustine married Heinrich's widow Elizabeth. Elizabeth was the mother of George and Michael.] George and Michael must stay with Augustine and their mother. In 1758 PHILIP WILLIAMS was then bound to Jacob Harman, and later in 1769 was listed as an heir of Jacob Harman in his estate, and identified as his grandson. Jacob lists his two grandchildren PHILIP and Maria Price, and gives them their mother's share of his estate.
***JOHN PHILIP (FILLIB) WILLIAMS (Deed at his death listed his wife as Elender (Elenor)). Born 28 Jan 1742/3 in PA. ('SWATARA' LUTHERAN). Died, circa 1818, in Giles Co, VA. Baptism: 19 Jul 1743 in PA. In the book "German New River Settlement" by Rev. Ulysses S.A. Heavener, it was noted that Henry Wilhelm (later Williams) settled in the lower Shenandoah Valley in 1726. It doesn't say where this information came from. We found that 'our' Henry Williams came to the New World in 1738. He was first in the Peaked Mt. area, probably, and then went on down to the New River area. The Indians were still fighting the settlers, so they had to retreat several times to safer ground. Some of the settlers got tired of having to move back and forth - and probably leaving everything they had worked for - for they stayed back near Peaked Mountain. In the New River settlement in 1753, 3 orphan children - PHILIP, George, and Michael, sons of Henry Wilhelm were bound to Augustine Price. In 1758, again it was noted that PHILIP WILLIAMS, orphan of Henry Williams was bound to Augustine Price. However, he was also listed as bound to Jacob Harman. Later, PHILIP was listed as an heir in Jacob Harman's will. Amoung the Tithables for 1771, Lower District of New River were Mical Price - 4 Jacob Shell - 2 David Harlis Philip Harlis PHILIP WILLIAMS George Williams in 1772. PHILIP WILLIAMS and George Williams settled on Sinking Creek of New River. In 1779, they had not taken the 'Oath of Allegiance' so they had to pay a bond along with other Germans because they wished to convince mankind that we are not open or secret enemies of our count[r]y. PHILIP WILLIAMS' name was signed to this in German script and spelled as 'Fillib.' Michael Price's name was also written in German script; other names listed were Jacob Shell, George Williams, Micel Price and David Harless.
