Fascinating suggestion! Please consider this an interim reply:

The birth of Lewis/Ludwig and of Jacob, and those of Johann Christian Henrick and the subsequent Christian Henrick, are recorded in Johann Franciscus's "journal."

There's an image copy of those entries, and of a 1787 land survey for Lewis, at the main Bibler site maintained by Lisa Sheets at:

Richard Pence has details of some land matters (and other aspects) in the Hawksbill Creek area involving the Pence family and the Bibler/Pebler family of which we're speaking, plus marriages and other data, at:
He has so much in his pages that one has to look through lots to find various parts. Pebler/Bibler references are scattered; I think mainly in the Hawksbill section. The connection, among others: Francis Kroh Bibler (1758-1813), s/o Johann Franciscus, married Mary Pence (1765-1829) in 1771 in Virginia.

Re the land deal:
John Taylor II married Barbara Strickler in 1794 in Shenandoah Co., VA. He married Catharine Bibler, d/o Francis Bibler (a brother of Lewis) and Mary Pence, in 1818 in Fairfield Co., OH. This John was a son of John Taylor and Magdalene James. John Taylor Sr was born in Virginia and died 4 Mar 1790 in Shenandoah Co., VA. Re Strickler-Taylor,besides the Bibler site mentioned above,some references that apply are:

Stricklers and Taylors married some of the surnames that Biblers married.

Something I found today for the first time, re "Pebler" citations in Rockingham Co., VA:

It amazes me how new "hits" show up, depending on just exactly what one specifies in searches.

The 1783 tax list for Shenandoah County lists Christian Pibler, Jacob Pibler and Lewis Pibler. It also lists two John Taylors and a Jacob Wickle.

A Lewis Pibler of Dunmore Co., VA, is on Revolutionary War roster. So is Christon Pebler; it's the only Christon Pebler reference I find via the Internet.
Of course, Dunmore County (1772) became Shenandoah County (1778).

There's no known Christopher in the Bibler family at that time (nor any Charles at that time), unless Christopher is an alternate for Christian. Little is known about the Christian Henrich who was born after Johann Franciscus reached America, just his 19 Aug 1752 birth in Virginia and that his wife was named "Anna."
