Anthony Newhouse was born in Germany in 1710. He died in Philadelphia, PA in 1762. When did your earliest Newhouse ancestor come to the USA? 


Birth:  1710
Chemnitzer Stadtkreis
Saxony (Sachsen), Germany
Death:  1762
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA
Anthony Newhouse(Neuhaus) was born about 1710 in Germany, son of Johannes Anton and Agnes Neuhaus. "Antony" Neuhaus was listed as the eldest son in his father's Will written in Providence Twp of Philadelphia County (now Montgomery Co) on 15 Apr 1754.

Anthony immigrated from Germany to Philadelphia by 1737, and was recorded in the business ledgers of Benjamin Franklin in Philadelphia from 1737 - 1747, and built a Paper Mill at Trout Run Creek near Whitemarsh in 1746, which he sold to Jacob Hagie in 1752. The mill generated paper sold to Benjamin Franklin to make colonial pounds currency, from which they both made a handsome fortune.

Anthony married Mary (unknown maiden) near Philadelphia by 1743, with their eldest son Jacob was baptized at the Abington Presbyterian Church in June 1744.

There are several listings in the Pennsylvania Gazette (Philadelphia) from 1749 - 1754, including the sale of properties in Germantown and Whitemarsh, including references that he did not want to pay his wife's debts. The last reported property transaction for Anthony was in August 1762, and died before November 1763 when his wife Mary wrote her Will, listed as widowed.

There is no burial record for Anthony, and could be buried Abington Presbyterian Church where his eldest son was baptized.

Anthony and Mary's children:
*Jacob 1744-bef 1820, m. Margaret unknown
*David (Anthony?) c1745-c1780, m. unknown
*Susannah c1746-, m. Adam Walker
*Jonathan c1747-c1799, m. Ann Simon
*Sarah c1748
*Isaac c1749-bef 1830, m. Catherine Van Pelt
