Balthasar Loesch and his wife, Susan R. Loesch, lived at Gensheim, Germany, near Worms. In 1710, not long after the close of the thirty years war, they were part of a German colony sent to America by Queen Ann. They settled in the Province of New York in 1713. There were two sons of record in the family of Balthasar Loesch: John Adam Loesch and John George Loesch. About 1723 these two sons moved to Tolpehocken District in Berks County, Pennsylvania. | http://www.fmoran.com/loesch.html Balthazar Loesch was born in 1671 in Gernsheim, near Worms. He left London on December 25, 1709, with other Palatine immigrants, but died on the voyage along with many others. The survivors reached New York in June 1710, encamping initially on Nuttings, now Governors Island NY, and from there moving to Livingston Manor and Schoharie Valley, NY, later to Berks Co. PA. His wife Susanna Phillipina Gering, from Ginsheim-Gustavsburg, Germany, survived, as did at least four children. | http://www.rootsweb.com/~cascgs/lesh/aqwn03.htm Johann Balthasar LESCH | Lutheran; occupation Gemeinsmann at Trebur. To America 1709-10. See "The Palatine Familites of New York," by Henry Z. Jones, vol. I, 1985, pp. 554-557. March 1992 IGI gives place of marriage as Trebur, lStarkensurg, Hesse-Darmstadt. | http://64.233.187.104/search?q=cache:sMd4C6O-nYQJ:www.tricountyi.net/asmullen/Markelsville/Ancestors/lesh.htm+%22Susannah+Philippina+Gering%22&hl=en&lr=lang_en | Johann Balthasar LESH 1734-1802 Burial: Hamlin, Lebanon, PA. Johann Balthasar (Balthazer, Balthazar) Lesh(Lesch) tombstone gives his birth as 1730, however, records at Reed's Church gives his birth as 1734. He was a revolutionary soldier. He married first Anna Maria; they had three children within two 1755 and 1757: John, Benjamin and Jacob. Let's assume Anna died in child birth. Balthasar remarried about 1759 in Berks, PA. to Anna Christina HEIL b. 1740. They had nine children all b. in Berks, PA.: | Anna Maria b: 1760 Johann Peter b: 1763 Johann Bathazar Jr. b: 1765Maria Salome b: 1767 Johann George b: 1770 Maria Barbara b: 1774 Anna Catharine b: 1775 Elizabeth b: 1779 Christina | The Lesh ancestors did not arrive in Juniata Township until about 1840. However they came to America about 1720; settled in Schoharie, New York before coming to the Susquehanna valley. It's an interesting story. It was the custom to give their sons the first name of the father and they were known by their middle name. So it is confusing. Also remember Markelsville didn't get its name until after 1853 when George Markel bought "Pretty Meadows". | The grandfather of Balthasar Lesch was Jacob Losch. Hans Jacob Losch, s/o Jacob Losch, md. Anna Margaretha, d/o Wendel Latheimer (?) - Gerichtsmann at Wiebheim an dem Heipt(?), 16 Nov 1658 (Trebur Chbk.)." In Henry Z. Jones' second book more clarifying information on the Lesch family has been found at 6095 Ginsheim-Gustavsburg (10 km s.e. of Wiesbaden; Chbks begin 1664). The correct name for the bride who married 16 Nov 1658 at Trebur to Hans Jacob Losch was Anna Margaretha, d/o Wendel Laubensheimer - Gerichtsmann of Ginsheim"an dem Heipt." Comment: Johan Balthasar is reported as having died at sea by William W. Lesh. However, as reported in the Henry Z. Jones' book, records maintained by Governor Hunter listing the head of the household and the numbers of individuals in that household with approximate ages, Balthasar Lesch/Loesch was first included on the Hunter lists July 1, 1710 with two persons over ten years of age and three persons under ten. The Hunter lists for December 24, 1711, show, however, Susanna Lesch/Loesch with three persons over the age of ten and one under ten. It is thus speculated that sometime between July 1, 1710 and December 1711 Susanna's husband died. Whether he died from the ill effects of the voyage or another reason will probably never be known. Bathasar was a farmer and vinedresser.
