     Johannes Baum had moved with his father from Reading to Cumru Township, Berks County, by 1780.

     Johannes Baum and his family probably moved to Upper Mahantongo Township, Berks County shortly after 1800 (Upper Mhantongo Township would become part of Schuylkill County in 1811). He purchased 268 acres of land from John Klinger, Esq. That tract of land was part of a larger tract known as Spread Eagle Manor. It is now situated west of the present village of Klingerstown in the western portion of Upper Mahantongo Township.9 He sold a portion of his property in Upper Mahantonga Township, Berks County, in 1807 to his son Johannes Baum.10 He was listed as the head of a family on the 1810 Census of Upper Mahantonga Township, Berks County.
