a. Note:   Hannes (John/Johannes/Jacob) Groh, a native of Switzerland, came to America at a very early date. Tradition has it that he belonged to the company of emigrants whom the captain attempted to starve in order to gain possession of the supposed large sum of money held by these parties. The motive that impelled old Hannes, the ancestor of the Groh family of this county, to emigrate to Pennsylvania, was on account of religious persecutions which raged in his native country and which was the chief cause of the emigration of so many of the noble-hearted pioneers of Pennsylvania where no cruel persecutions were waged against these devout worshippers of the almighty God. Old Hannes Groh was born about the year 1708 and, if traditional report be true, came to America in 1725. He was married to Magdalena, only daughter of old Wendel Baumann, progenitor of the now numerous family scattered throughout every state of the Union and all the provinces of Canada. All efforts made to ascertain the names of their children together with their descendants proved, to a great extent, fruitless. The names of only three children have been received.
