Predecessors of Henry Mohn

I'm seeking any information about the predecessors of Henry Mohn (b. Oct. 4, 1803, d. Mar. 13, 1875), my great great great grandfather, who grew up in Belfast, Northampton Co., PA. His ancestors may have emigrated from Germany to PA. The Mohn lineage of my family is as follows:

About 1827, Henry Mohn married Eliza Fehr (b. May 15, 1805, d. Sept. 22, 1890) of Bushkill, PA, and they had 7 children including Charles Mohn (my great great grandfather), Elenora C. Mohn, and Mary C. Mohn. They lived in Salisbury, PA.

Charles Mohn (b. Feb. 1828, d. ?) married Louisa ___?___, and they had 8 children, including Maria Mohn, Stephen A. Mohn, Alma Mohn, Benjamin F. Mohn, Ellsworth Mohn, Preston Mohn, Annie Mohn, and Aggie C. Mohn. They lived in Salisbury, PA.

Benjamin F. Mohn (b. 1861, d. Mar. 5, 1910) married Sarah Larash in 1881, but she died in 1885. In 1887, he married Sallie Cressman (b. 1864, d. June 20, 1906), and they had 3 children, including Howard E. Mohn, Frank Norman Mohn (my grandfather), and Florence A. Mohn. They lived in South Bethlehem, PA.

Frank Norman Mohn (b. Aug. 17, 1891, d. Feb. 1973) married Bessie Bishop Pell (b. June 16, 1894, d. Aug. 1973) and they had one child, Norman Carroll Mohn (my father). They lived in Elm Grove, WV, just outside of Wheeling.

Norman Carroll Mohn (b. Nov. 17, 1913, d. Sept. 23, 1977) married Louise Rosing in 1940, and they had 3 children, including Susan Louise Mohn, Norman Carroll Mohn, Jr., and Walter Rosing Mohn. They lived in TX.

Any information about Henry Mohn's ancestors would be welcomed. Thanks.

Walter Mohn
