    significance in Pennsylvania history and in the history of the Moravian and German Reformed Churches is beyond the scope of these short columns Suffice it to say that he was an important historical figure The internet will yield almost countless references to him and his descendents many of whom were people of international prominence and who today number in the many thousands The thesis of this short article though is to put a disclaimer on one bit of internet lore regarding the roots of the Antes family Online the story persists that the Antes were of aristocratic stock and had lost possession of estates and titles sometime during the centuries of religious wars during the Protestant Reformation Typical is the following In the Dictionary of American Biography it is stated that an ancestor of Philip Frederick Baron Von Blume from Mainz had hellenized his German name into its Greek equivalent Antes in order to escape persecution during the Thirty Years War 1618 1648 this some 75 or 80 years before an Antes came to America And in the Genealogy of Henry Onderdonk written in about 1870 is stated John Frederick Antes was born Baron Von Blume head of a noble family of the German Palatinate He took to a monastic life and changed his name to the Greek equivalent anthos a flower corrupted since into Antes He became a protestant and to escape persecution came to this country married and settled Unfortunately there is not a particle of evidence to support this story which seems to have been created in America In fact Antes family researchers in Germany have conclusively traced Antes genealogy to at least eight generations before Henry s birth and before the start of the Protestant Reformation The Antes were tradesmen A very abbreviated sketch of the Antes family genealogy follows The story starts with NICLAS von BREIDENAU 1450 1520 who had a son JOHANNES 1480 1543 Johannes married against his father s wishes KATHARINA von FUTER who died in 1547 They had removed from Breidenau because he had been disinherited by his father for having deserted the church and marrying after his father had sent him to school to become a priest He did not inherit his parents property which fell to his third son named ANTONIUS ANTONIUS or ANTHONY or ANTHES after inherited his grandfather s property lived in Meisenheim From this son arose the family name known as ANTHIS or ANTHES He was born about 1505 and died in 1552 Next in line was HANS ANTHES 1530 1608 a cloth weaver He married in 1560 ENGEL THEIN daughter of WOLF THEIN born 1538 She died in 1609 One of their children was KONRAD ANTHES 1580 d before 1622 also a cloth weaver He married 1605 Ursula and one of their children was JOHANN LEONARD ANTHES 1609 1665 a cooper who married 1630 KATHARINE NEUMANN One of his children was JOHANN GEORGE ANTHES 1641 d before 1711 also a cooper who married ANNA ENGLE LINBACH
