      Johann Jost Lohrengel, son of Johann Peter & Anna Margaretha Lohrengel, was baptized on 22 June 1728 in Lorbach. He married on 2 February 1758 in Vonhausen, Isenburg, to Anna Maria, daughter of Christoph Hartheim.
      Jost Lohrengel is recorded on the 1767 Census of Balzer in Household No. 74. He is listed with his wife Magdalena, so his first wife was evidently deceased.
