Descendants of George Rex

      16. Johan Georg3 Rex (Wilhelm2, George1)691,692 was born in Springfield Twnsp., PA693, and died Bet. 1811 - 1812 in Heidelberg, PA693. He married Anna Maria Hunsicker693 Abt. 1769693, daughter of Johannes Hunsicker. She was born November 15, 1783, and died September 06, 1837.

Notes for Johan Georg Rex:

Johan Georg Rex, eldest son of Wilhelm and Margaretha (Rupert) Rex, was born in Springfield Township, and died in Heidelberg 1811-1812. He married Anna Maria Hunsicker, daughter of the Swiss immigrant Johannes Hunsicker. There is no known
record of the death of the widow or of the place of their burial.

George attained the rank of Ensign in the Northampton County Militia by 1783 and continued his service through 1798. He appears on the 1790 Federal Census in Heidelbrg as George Rix. His will was probated 20 January 1812, and the widow mary
renounced in favor of her eldest living son John Rex.

The marriage date of 1769 is impossible given Anna Maria's birth in 1783--perhaps 1799?

      23. Georg Jacob3 Rex (Bernard Jacob2, George1)757,758 was born June 17, 1750 in Heidelberg Township, PA759, and died October 05, 1800 in Menallan Township, York (Adams) Co., PA759. He married Anna Maria Yates760,761,762 in Lynn Township, Northampton Co., PA762. She died August 24, 1825 in Canton, Stark Co., OH763.

Notes for Georg Jacob Rex:

Georg Jacob Rex, eldest son of Bernard Jacob and Anna Elisabeth (Orner) Rex, was born in Heidelberg Township 17 June 1750 and died in Menellan Township, York (Now Adams) County 5 October 1800. He married Anna Maria Yates in Lynn Township,
Northampton County, who died 24 August 1825 at Canton, Stark County, Ohio, having migrated with her son after the death of her husband.

Georg Jacob was confirmed Jubilate 1766 by Daniel Schumacher who mistakenly identified him as "son of Wilhelm." Georg Jacob took the oath of allegiance from Lynn Township and served in the Revolution from there. He purchased, 1 April 1776, a
mill on Switzer Creek from Peter Miller and is counted on the 1790 Federal Census in Lynn. He shortly sold the mill to George Krim and moved West to York County near his cousins and purchased a grist, hemp and saw mill on Opossom Creek. He
died intestate and is buried with a German script tombtone in Bender's churchyard, Adams County. His eldest son adminstered his estate and, in 1803, sold the mill and presently moved West to Ohio.

  Notes for Christina Rex:

Christina, the youngest daughter of George Jacob and Anna Maria (Yates) Rex also came to Canton at some point. According to "George Rex of Germantown" she married Jacob Bucher 29 Oct 1816. We are assuming her middle or given name must have
been Jane, due to the following marriage announcement in The Ohio Repository. 31 Oct 1816; Page 3, Column 1. Jane Rex married Jacob Bucher, 29 Oct. This date also matches Dorothy Rex Schutte's genealogy of George of Germantown.
