     John Michael Ranck was born in 1701 at Mannheim, Germany.1 He married Anna Barbara Schwab.1 John Michael Ranck died on 28 July 1778.1 He was buried on 1 August 1778 at Ranck Family Cemetery, East Earl, Lanacaster, Pennsylvania.1
     He witnessed In the spring of 1728 in Mannheim John Michael and John Philip Ranck learned that a band of Moravians was sailing down the Rhine past Mannheim for the purpose of embarking from Rotterdam for America. The young men sent a message ahead, begging the travellers to stop and take them on as additional passengers. Soon John Michael with his youn wife, Anna Barbara Schwab, and John Philip were journeying downt he Rhine to Holland. in 1728.3 He witnessed On June 5, 1728, John Michael and Anna Barbara, with 203 other emigrants, set sail from Rotterdam for America on the English vessel, The Mortonhouse. John Coultas was its ship master. After 81 days of rough ocean voyage, crowded in the dismal holds of the ship, they arrived in Philadelphia on August 24, 1728.

Strangely enough, brother John Philip was not on that passenger list. He waited in Rotterdam another year, sailing on June 20, 1729, on the very same vessel, The Mortonhouse, making its next round trip to America. He arrived in Philadelphia on August 19 1729, after a voyage of 55 days. No one knows for sure why both young men did not come at the same time. Romance may have been a stake, since this year later John Philip brought with him a young bride, Anna Barbara Schumacher. on 5 June 1728 at Rotterdam, Holland.4

     He witnessed The Elector Frederick of the Palatinate successfully withstood the frequent efforts of the French to penetrate his province and established it as a refuge for the Protestant exiles.. Mannheim, not yet a large city, became a Huguenot center and Jean Ranc no doubt continued his preaching there. Son Hans Valentine met in Mannheim and married Margaretha Phippes of French-Dutch descent. They had six children. Hans Valentine died in 1710, leaving his young family in the care of their grandfather. Only two years later Rev. Jean Ranc also died. Rosine Katharine and Johann Valentine died in childhood. The remaining four children, left with their mother, grew to young adulthood in Mannheim. Ors family story continues with the lives of the two brothers, John MIchael and John Philip. Of their mother and the other children we have no further knowledge, except that on 26 February 1725 Susanna Margaretha married Johann Valentin Weinkraus. circa 1695.2

     Rev Jean Ranc was born in 1641.1 He died in 1712.1
     He witnessed In 1641 in the middle of this period of relative calm created by the Edict of Nantes,Jean Ranc, the Huguenot pastor from Paris, was born. We do not know the names of his parents nor the links which tie him to the Vibrac lineage. It is assumed that his roots were in that Languedoc soil. Nor do we know the name of his wife. Their only son was named Hans Valentine, a spelling which appears to reflect the transition from French to German through which the family moved in the succeeding decades.
When in 1685 King Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes and resumed the unbridled persecution of Protestants, ordering all Huguenot cleargymen to leave France in fourteen days. Rev. Jean Ranc, then 44 years of age, fled with his family from Paris to escape the death which would undoubtedly have been their lot. in 1641.2 He was a Huguenot Pastor. before 1685.3 He witnessed When the persecution o fthe Huguenots resumed with bitter vengeance, La Rochelle no longer existed as a haven and there was little political or military power to restrain the vengeful King. Rev. Jean Ranc, with his wife and son Hans Valentine, fled first to the Alsatian city of Strasburg on the Rhine. It was not long until the armies of Louis recaptured that city, which throughout its history was sometimes German and sometimes French territory. The refugees had to flee even farther down the Rhine to Mannheim.
Mannheim is in that area of Germany called the Palatinage, or in German the Pfalz. From this province many of the German pietists came as immigrants to America in the 18th century. The Palatinate took its name from the fact that it was governed by the count palatine of the Rhine, one of the four lay electors of the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. A palatine was in Roman times an official serving as an administrative or military aide to the emperor. in 1685.4
