"The primitive pioneers were Moravians. While the Indian tracts of Clay and Salem Twps. drew Moravian emigrants whose names were insufficient to purchase lands, the rich plains of Warwick became the possession of wealthy Moravians who sold parcels to their well-to-do brethren...John F. DeMuth, in 1800 or 1801, accompanied Lewis Knaus, Godfrey Haga, and Michael Ulrich on a horseback journey from the east...Mr. Demuth bought a small farm of 70 acres in Warwick Twp., and bringing his wife, Elizabeth (Roth) from Pennsylvania settled there. A year or two later Christian (Christopher) Demuth, the father of John, emigrated with his eight daughter and settled on 35 acres just east of the river and opposite John.
John Frederic Demuth was a Justice of the Peace from 1836 - 1839. He died after 1850 (the exact date is unknown), and was buried in the Moravian Churchyard at Gnadenhutten (now known as Gnadenhutten-Clay Union Cemetery).
