Rothhaas Family

First Generation

Jacob Rothhaas (1795-1864) is identified in the Records of the Moravians in NC as the son of the widow Anna Elisabeth Rothhaas, maiden name Steiner. Anna Elisabeth is well documented, as the daughter of Jacob Steiner and Catharina Beroth, as a child attending the Girls' School in Salem, and as a young woman becoming a teacher in the school herself. The Moravian records through volume 11 didn't mention her husband. However, thanks to Wade Motsinger, we now know who he is. Wade found the marriage record for "Conrad Rotehoze to Anna Stoner", Surry Co. NC, 10 Jul 1794.

Jacob married Maria Magdalena Vogler (1790-1863)
