Johannes Beroth was born in Oppau, Ludwigshafen, Rheinland-Pfalz in 1725 and came to Pennsylvania with his parents and siblings on the Winter Galley, arriving in Philadelphia 5 Sept. 1738. The family settled in Creuz Creek Township, York Co. PA[1] [2]

Johannes arrived in North Carolina on November 17, 1753, one of the 11 original settlers of Wachovia (Records of the Moravians in North Carolina 1:74)[3] , described as "born in Germany, aged 28, a Pennsylvania farmer". He moved to a farm outside Bethania (see Records of the Moravians in NC 4:1923). In the fall of 1757 he went back to Pennsylvania, where he married Catherine Elisabeth Neumann in Bethlehem on July 29, 1758. They returned to North Carolina in May 1759 (Records of the Moravians in NC 1:206). He is listed among the men resident in Bethania, 1775-1783 (Records of the Moravians in NC 4:1923)

Records of the Moravians in NC 7:3317. October 27, 1816, Bethania: Our old Br. Johannes and Sr. Catharine Elisabeth Beroth, who have been living for some years with their son Heinrich on his farm seven miles from here, moved today to their grandson, Christian Wagemann, in the so-called Charlestown [now Waughtown] three miles from Friedland schoolhouse and will now be considered members of the Friedland congregation.

Johannes died in 1817 and Catherine two years later. Both are buried in Friedland Moravian God's Acre in Forsyth County NC.[4]
