This Volume 1 of a 13 Part Volume record gathered since late 1890's relatinq to the MOOSE families in the United States.

The Mooses in America originally came from the small hamlet of Sollinqen, suburb of
Karlisruhe, Baden, Wurttenberg, Germany near the France border. Solingen is noted for
its hot springs just like Hot Springs, Arkansas,
Around 1750, Johann Davidt. Mussgenung heard the good news that in America you couldhave all the land you wanted, In Germany, only the the Rulers could hold land.

Johann Davidt Mussgenug-bapt. 12 July 1720-Sollingen, Germany and married on the
14 July 1744-Elisabetha Kurtz-Grotzingen, Germany. She was d/o Johann Georg Kurtx
and Anna Eva Kurta nee Heyd. They had three children, Johann Georg, Eva Katharine and Jacob were born in Germany. Johann Georg was born 01 May 1745 in Grotzingen, was bapt. 03 May 1745 in the Evan. Lutheran Church. In 1772, he settled near Taylorsville, Alexander Co., NC. No one knows what happen to Eva born 04 Nov 1746; bapt. 05 Nov 1746 in the Evan. Lutheran Church whether she had died or what, when they left to come to America, but Jacob born 03 May 1750; bapt. 04 May 1750; died 23 Nay 1750; bur. 24 May in Grotzingen Evan.
Lutheran. They had three more children, Anthony, Henry, and Jacob were born in America.

In the summer of 1751, Davidt, his wife, Elizabeth, and his son, George, left Grotzingen via
a boat down the Rhine River to Rotterdam, Holland. There they departed for the New World
on the Ship -"Brothers" and landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 16, 1751.
Two days later, a son was horn making Anthony the first Moose child born in America.
He was baptised september 19, 1751 according to the records of St. Michaels and Zion
Lutheran Churches in Philadelphia. Sponsors were Anthony Haver and wife, Annie Marie; Jacob Lehman and wife, Magdalena; Jacob Nagler and wife, Julianna; and David Rober and
Wife, Barbara. These were all listed as passengers on the ship "Brothers"

George marr. 1770 to Christina Anthony where about in 1772 he left North-ampton (now Leigh) Co, PA to settled near Taylorsville, Alexander Co., NC, served in the American
Revolutionary War as a private in the NC Militia under Light Horse Harry LEE in 1777. He died in 1809 in Alexander Co. and is buried at the Moose Cem. Later we were told that the
tombstones were removed to a man's house for a fire place, Today that house is in disarray and is haunted. He had 4 sons: George Jr., Anthony, John and Frederick.

Anthony in later life became a man of considerable consequence-owning land that he bought
and sold several tracts of land ins Pennsylvania and North Carolina (Roman Co
1778-1798) and was several times granted Power of Attorney, He was taxed in Berks Co.,
Pennsylvania in 1775. The Tax records indicate that he may acquired a family about 1780.
He died in Pennsylvania in 1800, intestate, and apparently without male heirs. Letters of Administration of his estate were granted to friends, David and Peter Klein, with Daniel
Dutterer, and Henry Staffer as Bondsmen.

The fifth child was Henry who was born 1755 in Pennsylvania. He served in the Revolutionary War and imediately after he was discharged on 1 June 1780, settled in Saugerties, Ulster Co, NY, where he married Maria Baer and raised six children-Annatje, Elizabeth, David, Adam and Peter. He was granted a pension as a Revolutionary War soldier. His pension application is in the National Archives in Washington, DC, recities that he was engaged in a number of battles, including Brandywine and Germantown. It further states that he was "in winter quarters at Valley Forge", that he was taken prisoner by the British on 19 January 1778,
and put in jail in Philadelphia and "being a tailor by trade he made clothes for the British
troops for four months." In early June 1778, he was exchanged and joined the regiment of
Colonel Stuart and was engaged in the Battle of Momouth commanded by General George
Washington. He was discharged in New York State about June 1, 1780, He died 03 August 1835 before his application for a pension was approved, sad the amount he would have
received was paid to his children named above. His pension application was signed, "Henry Mooskenung, his X mark or Moosekenung."

The sixth child was Jacob was recorded in a Lutheran Church in Wisenbery Twp,
Northumberland (now Lehigh) Co, Pennsylvania in 1757. (This was the second child
named Jacob born to Johann Davidt and Elizahetha Mussgnug. This was not unusual since
the first Jacob died at three weeks old. This was a common practice among the German
people and other European nationalities to name a child for a deceased one. Sometimes
two or three were given the same name as the death rate was very high for infants in those
days. They felt that the deceased child was replaced with life as well as being replaced in
the family home.) After marrying Barbara Buzzard, born in Pennsylvania on 11 March 1764,
they moved to Mecklenburg (now Cabarrus Co) Co, NC where he died in 1803 and Barbara died 24 March 1848. She is buried at the Bear Creak Reformed Church (Bethel United
Church of Christ) in nearby Stanly Co where many of the descendants have been buried.
There was no organized church in the community when Jacob died so he was buried in an unknown spot in a field on his land. Today an a spot by this field-a large tombstone has been
placed as you drive by on a paved Co road near the Bear Creek Church. A deed of
November 10, 1821, Barbara Moose, as widow of Jacob Moose, Sr., conveyed certain lands
in Cabarrus Co, NC, to their nine surviving children. Later, an February 37, 1840, she also
made a will providing for the disposal of any property she might own at the time of her
death in the following manner: "After my decease it is my will *** that all my worldly estate, that it has pleased God to bless me with, I give and divide it (in) the following manner; all my
clothing I give and bequest to my two daughters Nary Lyerly and Barbara Lefler to be divided
equally between them. All remaining part of my property to he put to public sale." (The third
daughter, Elizabetb, had died 07 September 1830; hence, that why only two daughters were
mentioned in the will.)

In the l790's, the given name (Mussengnug) was changed to the present day spelling Moose.
The reason that was given was that during the American Revolution-the British had used
Hessians soldiers (Germans) to fight the colonists. They were victims of the European system
by which governments sold men into military service for 25 cents a day, our ancestors felt
that if they did not change the name-they would have trouble where ever they went.

Noose in Indian Language is a twigg ester. Today you can still find the names in various
spelling -; Moosgiver, Mooskrnung, Moosekenung, Moes, Muse, Musick, etc.

"Not by might, nor by power, but by the Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts -you will succeed because of My Spirit, though you are few and weak." Zechariah 4:6

Sponsors at his baptism were Jakob Kussmaul and wife, Johannes Reiss
