Joseph was born about 1748 in Antietam, Pennsylvania. Joseph became a "dunkard" (Baptist) preacher. He married Christiana About 1782. In 1781-82 he served in the Cumberland County Militia. It is not known whether he saw any action against the British.

In 1785 he moved to Springhill Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. He bought land near his brother, Georges, on Morris Cross Roads. He also acquired land along the Morganrown Road in Springhill. By 1803 he had a sizeable farm.

Joseph was apparently one of the Founders of the New Lights Church, built in 1825 in Springhill Township. It was referred to as the "Burnt Church" (which is exactly what it did in 1853), and later called "Oak Grove Christian Church".

Joseph was called "Etna Joe", as the story goes, because he halted during his preaching, and in recovering himself said "Etna". He could tell what hour of morning it was by crow or chicken, was a great counselor for "brutes" diseases, and died from "bleeding" in 1835.

George was a "Chamberlain" to the King of portion of Germany where Umstadt was (south of Frankfurt). His wife Agnes was a "Lady to the Queen".

He and Agnes were married about 1710 in Eschollbrucken, Germany. They were both baptised in the Eder River. George had joined the Pietist Group by Alexander Mack in 1708 to form the Church of the Brethren at Schwarzenau. Schwarzenau on Wittgenstein was where a refugee village had grown. George became a leader of this group.

When George left Germany he most likely left riches behind, since he held an office under the King.

He and Agnes joined the first group of Krefeld Brethren in 1719 to migrate to Pennsylvania. They lived in the Netherlands for a Short time before immigrating.

George purchased 40 acres on the North Wales Road in Springhill Township, Pennsylvania. He was living in Germantown in 1750. A gift to his son, Jacob, of a Bible in 1752 is the last documented reference to George. George was one of the first Baptists in America, who were called "Tunkers," "Tumblers," "Dunkers," and "Dumplers." The death date is approximate from "The Brethren in Colonial America" edited by Donald F. Durnbaugh. George Baltzer Ganss and his wife Johanna Agnes are found in the appendixes. They are 159 and 160 on Alexander Mack Jr death list. William Nice appears after them in Christopher Sauer list, he died in 1779.

It is not certain whether Jacob was born in the Netherlands, as it could have been in Germany. His parents were on the move at the time.

His parents immigrated from Germany, via the Netherlands, to America about 1719. They settled with other refugees in Pennsylvania, Jacobs family living on the North Wales Road in Springhill Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. He was baptised in the Wissachon River in Pennsylvania.

In 1750, Jacob received a Bible from his father, as a symbol of affection. In 1751, Jacob purchased 104 acres in Frederick County, Maryland, called "Egypt", on the North side of the "draft" of Antietam, that Steiner's Mill stands on. He was a farmer, Cooper and he ran a Distillery. He Belonged to the "Brethren" Congregation in Antietam.

In 1754 the French and Indian Wars raged near Jacob's Antietam frontier home. Unresisting Brethren were scalped and slaughtered, but no harm came to the Gans family.

Following the French and Indian Wars, Jacob purchased 95 acres, called the "Addition" near his first tract on the Antietam, on May 2, 1767. This land is now in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. In 1770 he was assessed in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania with owning 259 acres, 2 horses and 2 cattle.

Sons, Jacob Jr., John, George and Joseph, all are listed as being in the Revolutionary Militia Lists of Cumberland County, as members of the 1st Battalion of the Company under Captain Daniel Clapsaddle in 1780 to 1781.

On May 20, 1784, son George secured a patent from the Commonwealth for "Rich Discovery" in Springhill Township. The Gans family maintained their "Dunker" religion in Springhill on Georges Creek. The farm of Jacob's was one with a large house, built for church purposes also. The preachers came to the house for meetings, as well as worshippers. There was a large upper chamber for worship.

Birth of son, Josephus Tisdal Gans, info from Mormon IGI submission, Batch 8736501, Sheet 25.

Joseph was born February 9, 1810, in what was Monongalia County, Virginia. History says that parts of that county became part of Fayette County, Pennsylvania, so it's possible that his parents didn't move from Virginia to Pennsylvania, as the state lines moved.

Joseph received a "Common School" education, and at age 16, he began to learn the shoemaker's and tanner's trades, and served a four year apprenticeship. He followed this trade at least until 1850.

He married Phoebe Rodgers (her name is Phoebe in son, Hamilton's death certificate and Phebe in "History of Green County, Wisconsin"), a "Native of Pennsylvania", in 1831. She died,following their move, in Juda, Green County, Wisconsin in 1850. She left Joseph with 5 children.

Joseph remarried on December 28, 1851 in Green County to Sarah Roderick (also born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania), who Joseph knew before his move to Wisconsin. Joseph and Sarah were members of the Juda Baptist Church.

At the time of the writing of the "History of Green County, Wisconsin" in 1884, Joseph was living in Sylvester, in Section 35, where he owned a farm of 175 acres, valued at $9,625, quite abit of money for then.

Joseph and Sarah had 8 additional children. They moved, in September 1889, with a daughter and son-in-law, to Shanandoah, Iowa. They settled on Maple Street and Belonged to the Baptist Church there. Joseph died in Shanandoah on February 10, 1891. Sarah died there on March 6, 1897.
