About Hans "Johann Anton" Weber

"Johann Anton" is the name by which he is usually identified but the name Anton is legendary with an unknown origin. On all the documents related to his estate his name is simply "Hans Weber." Johann and Hans are of course both German forms of the English name John. So John was the son of Heinrich Weber and Elsbeth (Ruggin) Weber who lived their lives in Switzerland with the result that Johann was born there. In 1670 he lived in Muhlekram, and in 1678 at age 20 he lived in Hamm. He married his wife (Maria Margaretha Sieber Herr?) in 1680 in Baretswill, Switzerland. Between 1683 and 1695 they had 4 boys and a girl. Their names were John Herr, Jacob Herr, Henry Herr, George Herr and Maria Herr Weber. The family is listed in Martyrs Mirror as landing at Amsterdam from the Palatinate before 1700 and moving to Freidrichstadt in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. In 1716, Hans Weber is recorded as an Anabaptist living in Oggersheim near Frankenthal in the Neustadt Oberant. By 1718 the four sons of Hans Weber had imigrated to Pennsylvania.

On June 30, 1711, Johann Rudolphus Bondeli patented 500 acres of land in the Conestoga section what was then Chester County, now in West Lampeter Twp., Lancaster County. Johann (Anton) Weber, his sons, and the sons of Jakob Guth (d. 1730) executed an agreement of lease with Bondeli for this land. On October 31, 1717, Bondeli deeded the land to Hans Weber. In 1723-4 the Weber Brothers (Jacob, Henry, and George) took up an additional 2500 acres of land to create Weber Thal (Weaverland, PA) and become the first settlers contiguous to the Welsh. The Webers had settled in Lancaster County twelve or fifteen years earlier (see the above paragraph) and lived near the present city of Lancaster. A good account of their early movements and connections is contained in a record known to have belonged to SAMUEL WEAVER in 1842.

The three sons of Hans "Johann Anton" Weber, were the first settlers in Weber Thal, but their father never lived there. He lived and died in the Pequea Valley, on the other side of the hill which divides the Pequea and "Weaverland" valleys. The Weber Pioneer Home (called "Weizenthal") is located at 1835 Pioneer Road, Lancanster Co., PA The nunculpative will of Hans Weber was dated December 17, 1724 and proved November 3, 1725, at Philadelphia. The administrative bond was signed on the later date by his oldest son, as well as by Christian Herr and John Herr, who most likely were brothers of the Widow Weber, Maria Margaretha. John was probably buried at Weizenthal as the first in a long line of Weavers buried in the old Weaver family burying ground there. The Weaver family stopped using this burial ground about 1850. No longer marked, the graveyard is located in a field in West Lampeter Township. The 21 marked graves were moved to Longenecker's Reformed Mennonite cemetery in the 1930s. The other 40-odd unmarked graves remain in the field and Johann Anton is undoubteldy among them. (William Woys Weaver: Mennonite Research Journal, January, 1973, pp.10-11)

Johann Anton is the name by which he is usually identified but the Anton is a legendary name with an unknown origin. On all the documents related to his estate etc. he is simply "Hans Weber." Johann and Hans, of course, are both German forms of the English name John.

Johann "John" is the son of Heinrich Weber and Elsbeth (Ruggin) Weber. His parents lived their whole lives in Switzerland and Johann was born there.

In 1670 he lived in Muhlekram; in 1678 age 20, lived at Hamm; in 1682 lived in Hamm; in 1689 lived with Georg and Barbara in Neustadt.

John, a Mennonite and Weaver, married his wife Margaretha Sieber Herr in 1680 in Baretswill, Switzerland.

The family is listed in "Martyrs Mirror" as landing in Amsterdam, Holland from the Palatinate in 1693. Shortly after that the moved on to Freidrichstadt in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Then in 1710 the family immigrated to America.

The family moved for the last time in 1717 to Weaverland, Lancaster Co., PA.

Between 1683 and 1700 they had 4 boys and 2 girls named: John, Jacob, Henry, George, Maria and Catharine Weber.

The three sons of Hans Johann "John" Anton Weber, were some of the first settlers in the Weaverland Valley but their father never lived there. He lived and died in the Pequa Valley, on the other side of the hill which divides the Pequea and Weaverland valleys. The Weber "Weizenthal" Pioneer Home is located at 1835 Pioneer Road, Lancanster Co., PA

John was probably buried at Weizenthal [the name of the Weber plantation] as the first in a long line of Weavers buried in the old Weaver family burying ground there. The Weaver family stopped using this burial ground about 1850.

No longer marked, the graveyard is located in a field in West Lampeter Township. The 21 marked graves were moved to Longenecker's Reformed Mennonite cemetery in the 1930s. The other 40-odd unmarked graves remain in the field and Johann Anton is undoubteldy among them.
