Comments:

A.  There seems to be a general consensus among secondary sources that our subject was the Philip STANG who arrived in Philadelphia on 30 Sep 1754 on the ship, Neptune.  However, I can see no way to differentiate him from the Johann Philip STANG who arrived in Philadelphia on 13 Aug 1750 on the ship, Edinburgh.  (Germans use their middle name as their call name, so the fact that one is Johann Philip and the other Philip is no obstacle.)  These two individuals may, in fact, be the same person because it was not that unusual for a man to make the crossing more than once to arrange for settling in the New World, and I'm inclined to believe that is the case here because we don't seem to find two Philip STANG's in PA.  If someone has further information on how or why the second Philip was designated our subject, please share.

B.  With regard to our subject's birthplace, even if he is the second Philip who came on the Neptune, we do not know where he was born beyond "Germany" (see comment below Source 2c).

Some appear to have misread the origin of the passengers on the Neptune to mean that our subject was born in "Darmstad, Zweybrecht."  There's no such place.  The manifest should be read that the passengers were from the Palatinate, from Darmstadt (in Hesse), and from Zweybrecht (a.k.a., Zweibrüchen, a former Duchy in Saarland) three different places and there is no way to tell which passenger is from which place, so we don't know where our subject was born, beyond "Germany."  If anyone has a different interpretation or additional records, please don't hesitate to correct me.

To wife Barbara, income of 300 pds. rem. and maintenance, household goods, etc.
To son Philip Stong, tract of 26 acres also 5 acres woodland.
To son Frederick, home farm, 132 acres subject to the payment of legacies.

To 5 daughters, 150 pds. each.

Share of daughter Susanna Johnson in the hands of executors in trust, after her death to her children.
Execs: Sons Philip, Conrad and Frederick.
Wit: Frederick, Conrad, John Hamsher, and Abraham Weber.

Why is son Johannes/John not mentioned?  Son Christian died in 1795, so to total eleven living children, we need to add another child.  Or did he say "11" because he'd had 11 children total, even though one was dead?
