Johann Jacob Alles who was born in about 1722 in Nellmersbach, Neckarkreis,
Wuerttemberg (Germany) and died in about 1785 in Hanover County, (now Dauphin County), Pennsylvania, his wife was Elizabeth Mohr who was born in 1726 in Nellmersbach, Neckarkreis, Wuerttemberg (Germany) and died in about 1785 in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. Together they had three sons, Jacob Alles, Abraham Alles and Christopher Alles.
The Alles family immigrated to this country from Nellmersbach, Neckarkreis, Wuerttemberg (Germany), via the port at Rotterdam in the Netherlands aboard the ship "Dragon", also aboard the ship was also an Abraham Alles which is believed to be Johann's brother. They entered port in the Colonial City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 17, 1749. They then joined a group of fellow German immigrants and traveled west to what was then called Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (Lancaster County is now Dauphin County) and settled in the predominantly German Community of Hanover Township. It is not known if they were married before they immigrated to the Colonies, or after they arrived. This also brings up the question as to whether Jacob was born in Germany or in Pennsylvania. One would have to assume that if Jacob was born in 1748 that his parents were married prior to their voyage. Of course to add to the confusion, the date of Jacob's birth is also an item of debate. Johann served in the French and Indian War and enlisted August 7, 1756.
