Johann Georg Bachmann was born in Richterswil, Horgen, Canton of Zürich, Switzerland.
He was the son of Jodocus Bachmann and Regula Treichler, and was baptized on 2 May 1686 in Richterswil.
He married Anna Maria Schnebelli in 1715 in Ibersheim, Worms, Rheinhessen-Pfalz, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany.
In Aug 1717, he arrived in Philadelphia with his wife and infant son, Henrich. He traveled west and settled near present day Coopersburg, Upper Saucon Twp., Lehigh Co., PA.
On 4 Jun 1737, George received patent to his first property (tract No. 95, 334 1/2 acres). Eventually, George would own a total of 1000+ acres of land in Upper Saucon Township.
In 1738, George Bachmann, Samuel Bechtel and Philip Geisinger were the founding members of the Mennonite congregation established at Coopersburg.
In 1745, he opened an inn and tavern, "Die Siebenstern" (The Seven Stars), at the present site of Main and State Streets in Coopersburg, to accomodate the German Moravians heading for their new settlement at Bethlehem, seven miles further north up the trail.
George died in Upper Saucon Twp. (now Coopersburg), Northampton (now Lehigh) Co., PA.
He was buried at the old meetinghouse next door to his original property.
