Note: The Bingeman family of the United States and Canada are all descendants of Lawrence Bingeman who emigrated from near Geneva, Switzerland, and arrived in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in April, 1780. On May 16th, 1730, he purchased from one named Jacob Reiff 100 acres of land* situated in Lower Salford Township. In a very short time Mr. Bingeman had quite a number of acres cleared and under cultivation and had the first farm buildings erected thereon, the barn of which was covered with tiles instead of shingles. His useful life in the land of the "Free" was destined to be short. We find that in June, 1733, the "Death Summons" called him away from this world of confusion into the world of "Peace and Joy"--the abode of Angels. His neighbors always found him a pure, honest, upright and God-fearing man. We find that his estate was sold by public auction on August 16th, 1733, and the proceeds of such sale handed over to his wife, Anne Margaret, and family. Since he died without a will we have no means of ascertaining the names of all his children. Quite likely there never was more than one child in the family. All we know of is one son named Hannes who was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1731. In 1762 he was married to Veronica K�uhler. They resided in Frederick Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, where they followed farming until their deaths. To them was born a family of several children whose names were not received. The youngest son of old Hannes Bingeman was John. [Eby Book 1895]
