Orator married John's daughter Susanna before his death. Orator proposed that William's estate should be divided among all instead of going to John as heir-at-law, which was John's desire. At that time only the heirs of John Munger and Henry and David Munger lived in United States, the rest lived in Upper Canada, and it was generally believed that Charles had been killed by the Indians in some of Wayne's battles, but it was uncertain whether he had left any living children. But Charles had a son Joseph.

John and Barbara Long are the only children of Elizabeth, who was one of children of Jno. Monger. More than 22 years ago, Henry Monger, deceased, being then 66 years old, left Rockingham in company with Charles Monger and William Monger, two of his sons; and Martin Tofflemier and Eve, his wife; and Leonard Crotzer and Mary, his wife; Eve and Mary being two of Henry's daughters, and went to Kentucky. About ten months after, they were all taken by the Indians at Riddle's Station and carried prisoners to Detroit. Shortly after this, Henry died intestate. Answer denies that Henry was never heard of after his capture, because David had received two letters from him since his capture. Henry died about 14 years ago at Detroit, or near there. Henry married about five or six years before he went to Kentucky; he was a blacksmith; had lost use of one hand. Answer speaks of Henry being on his death bed in presence of his wife. Cross bill says Michael Deck is a quack lawyer and common barretor.


He moved with 4 of his children (Charles, William, Eve and Mary) and the husbands of Eve and Mary, to Kentucky in about 1779, where they were all captured by British forces and Indians[3] and taken to the Detroit area[2].

    MANGER, JOHANN WILHELM (1720-1786) He was born in Waltzheim, Germany and was the son of Johan David and Susanna (Weyss) Manger. In America the Manger family were known as "Monger." He was an early blacksmith in Watlzheim and immigrated to Philadelphia in 1749 aboard the ship Dragon. He married Susanna Brodbeck on November 21, 1742 in Waltzheim. William settled in Frederick Co., VA before 1755 and was a blacksmith in the town of Winchester. During the French and Indian War he was a blacksmith for George Washington's army. In 1762 he moved his family to Naked Creek near the present day town of Elkton. He died in 1786 on Hog Island, Michigan Territory.

  5. While it would be expected that his baptismal name was Wilhelm Heinrich or Heinrich Wilhelm (since his name was given as either Henry or William in court records), he has been identified with the Hanß Wilhelm Manger who married Susanna Brotbeck in 1741 because Susanna Brodbeck is identified as the mother of his son Henry William Monger in the latter's baptismal record (assuming faithful transcription of that record).
