My records show that Hans Blauch and Anna had 7 children or which 6 were born before they arrived in the colonies in 1750. Children's names: Anna, Catharine, Barbara, Hans, Veronica ("Freena"), Daniel and Christian (or Christopher) who was born October 1, 162 in Pennsylvania and died April 18, 1836 in PA. I believe that Barbara was born about 1736 in Europe (Canton Berne?). She immigrated with her father on the "Brotherhood" ship. She lived with the Amish Mennonites in Southwestern Pennsylvania and died in Pennsylvania (year unknown to me). It appears that the English colony recordkeepers used Plough (and Blouch) for their family name so you might want to check under those sellings. Also, I believe that some records have this Hans Blauch spelled as Johannes Blough. In his genealogy history book, Herbert R. Blouch states that Hans was killed in an Indian attack on 5 September 1765. You might wish to review Ms. Marjorie Kinsey's book "Blough Family History" (she is now deceased). Good luck and successful hunting.
