Jacob Ammon arrived in Philadelphia on August 29, 1730 from Rotterdam on the Good Ship Thistle in a group of 76 immigrants.
His Ammon descendants could be listed sometimes as Aman, Amman, Amon, Ammon, Ammons. We Ammons were never good at spelling.
DOES ANYONE HAVE A LIST of his children, and also even his grandchildren ??

My own family line seems to have infested, that is settled in, North Carolina and South Carolina, starting in 1709. This is what we think, but proof is hard to come by :
The brothers John Aman and Philip Aman were among the large group of settlers who came to America with Baron Christopher deGraffenreid in 1709. Some of this group were Swiss but most of them were German, coming from that Upper Rhine Valley area known as the Rhineland Palatinate. This region was at the center of the Protestant Reformation, and was influenced by leaders of Lutheranism, the Reformed Movement, and Calvinism.
The Edict of Nantes had given to Protestants certain religious freedoms in Europe. In 1685, Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes, causing severe restrictions on Protestants in France.
Because of the limitations so imposed, these settlers left Germany and Switzerland. First they moved to England for one year. Queen Anne of England arranged for the group to be resettled in North Carolina under the leadership of deGraffenreid.
These Swiss-Germans apparently founded the port city of New Bern NC. So it seems, at this point, that my family line did not land in Philadelphia on the Thistle.
In 1714, the earliest records of Aman in North Carolina show Philip Aman and John Aman (my own ancestor, I think) listed among the Craven Precinct "Tythables."
Apparently in 1747 the Palatines of North Carolina petitioned King George II for a redress of grievances. Among the signers of this Palatine Petition was Philip Aman.
In a gift deed in Onslow County of March 6, 1742, William Shubridge granted 240 acres of land to his sons-in-law, Dennis Aman and Philip Aman. He did not mention his daughters' names. Other records indicate they were living in Onslow as early as 1737. But I have little other data on my ancestor's brother Phillip Aman. Very little.
DOES ANYONE OUT THERE have a family connection to my man John Aman Ammons, brother of Phillip ?? John apparently lived up near the Virginia line, maybe between the Roanoke and Meherrin Rivers, maybe in present-day Warren or Northampton county. DO YOU HAVE the children of this John Ammons of northern NC ??
