This is in response to Chris & posted here rather than to e-mail since this is early enough that it might affect several families.
Johanes Philip Huth was b. abt 1680 in Eppingen, Baden, Germany to Hans Huth and d. 4 Aug 1759 Philadelphia Co., PA. Joh. Phil. Huth m. lst Anna Catherina Gerner on 23 Jun 1711. Their children are all christened at Eppingen Reformed KB Church, Baden. The children are: 1) Fronica chr. 8 Feb 1706; 2) Joh. Wolfgang 21 Jul 1706; 3) H. Peter 26 Apr 1712 & d. 14 May 1713; 5) Elisabetha 26 Aug 1614 & d. 3 Jul 1716; 6) Maria Elisabetha 23 May 1719.
Joh. Phil. Huth m. 2nd 22 Aug 1719 at Eppingen Ref. KB Church to Anna Maria Sahm, dtr. of Hans Jacob Sahm. Their children are chr. at Epp. Ref. KB until emigration to America. They are: 1) Salomae 15 Aug 1720; 2) Johanne 16 Nov 1721; 3) Eva Margaretha 23 Oct 1722 who m. Johannes Reiswick; 4) Elizabetha 27 Apr 1725; 5) Susanna abt 1727, who d. aft 1782 and m. 1748 to Johann Erhardt Weiss; 6) Johan Philip, Jr. chr.28 Jul 1734 at New Goshenhoppen Ref. Church, Montgomery Co., PA who m. 1747-1757 to Eva Weiss; & 7) Johannes chr 28 Jul 1734 New Gosh. Ref. Ch., and m. 1747-1757 to Maria Barbara Zimmerman.
This looks like none of his children would have been born early enough to be father of Balthasar if Balthasar's son Conrad is b. 4/22/1733.
Where this info. was found courtesy of a Wise/Weiss cousin is: 1) Eighteenth Century Emigrants from German-Speaking Lands to North America by Annette Kunselman Burgert 1983 and 2)Pennsylvania German Marriages by D.R. Iris 1982 Gen. Publ. Co. I found some info in 30,000 Names also I think? Those and some books with Pennsylvania records of births, christenings, etc. would be a good place to start.
One thing that I found early on, but didn't know enough to document is that Hoths/Huths and Sohns were among the hundreds of Pennsylvanias massacred by the Indians about 1754-1763 along the Blue Mountains, Susquehanna River as far north as Penn's Creek. That event -- along with taking lives -- would be sufficient to make recordkeeping a secondary concern for a bit.
I hope this helps somewhat.
