Immigrated Ship Pink Plaisance

Married: 14 Sept 1723 in Baden-Wurttemberg, WEST GERMANY, to Anna Margretta Geisser Her Father is Christian Geisser. They had 3 children, John Jacob, Georg Bernhard, and Maria Margreth. His first wife, Anna Margretha, died on October 29,1730.

George married again, as the records shows George's second wife, Maria Margretha, and they had a child, Anna Maria, born February 9, 1732, nine months before the ship arrived in America. We don't know how long the passengers had to wait for a ship to sail for America but it is possible George listed his family several days before they sailed

George Mann came to Philadelphia on the Pink Plaisance on 21 Sept 1732,

Assumption is they are buried on the family farm, or buried in the cemetery at Peaked Mountain Church where they were members. This old cemetery now lost, was located a few feet east of Brown's Memorial Reformed Church in McGaheysville, adjacent to the former Peaked Mountain Church. All headstones remaining in the cemetery were placed on the ground and surrounding a Revolutionary War Marker that list the war patriots.
