About Ulrich Leib

Ulrich Leib (son of Hans Rudolph Leib and Maria Angus Orth)758, 759, 760 was born Abt. 1700 in Germany761, 762, 763, and died September 1767 in Manheim Twp, Lancaster Co, Pa.764, 765, 766, 767.He married Veronica Steiner/Stoner, daughter of Johannus Steiner/Stoner and Anna Brenneman.

Ulrich Leib arrived on the ship Molly on September 30, 1727 where his name was listed as Orick Leep.It is assumed that Johannes Leib who arrived on the ship William and Sarah seven days earlier and sailed from the same port as the Molly was the brother of Ulrich. Ulrich may have worked off his indenture to pay for the passage of his family to America and earn enough money to purchase land.This would account for seven years of his not owning property. Ulrich purchased 200 acres of land on October 10, 1734 and 50 acres on April 11, 1744. On April 12, 1744 Ulrich received patent to 246 acres in Lancaster County. On September 16, 1747 he received patent for another 101 acres adjacent to the 246 acres. Ulrich was assigned as a guardian of the minor Stoner children. Because the Leibs were close enough to the Stoners to take care of their children, tt is possible that Veronica, wife of Ulrich, was a Stoner but there is no proof.In December 1747 Ulrich Leib, Peter Yoder and Abraham Stoner, the oldest son of Abraham Stoner,were appointed guardians over Jacob, Elizabeth, Christian, Henry and Peter Stoner.On the June 25, 1748 Ulrich Leib and Peter Yoder requested another hearing at Orphans Count with Abraham Stoner who apparently conveyed away his siblings, the younger children, out of the county for reasons unknown. On August 15, 1748 Ulrich Leib and Peter Yoder requested that the younger children be put in their care because Abraham Stoner had not complied with the order put upon him. On September 6, 1748 the court demanded that Abraham bring the orphan children to whom he was appointed guardian to be educated in the religious persuasion of their parents at the instance of Ulrich Leib and Peter Yortee. Ulrich Leibs will was prepared in September 1767 and probated in September 1769.It is not known where he was buried. Ulrich Leib's Will: "..... I give and bequest to my beloved wife, Veronica, the sum of eighty pounds ......I give and bequest unto my son Henry Leib, the sum of one shilling sterling and to my daughter Veronica, the wife of John Leib, one English shelling sterling..... to my son Ulrick I give and bequest the sum of two pounds..... and I exclude him from the perogative of his birthright and he shall not have more of my estate than the rest of my heirs......The residue of my estate shall be divided among my heirs, Ulrick Leib, Christian Leib, Abraham Leib, Peter Leib, John Leib, Christian Long and Jacob Fricks....
