It so happens that Jack Langstaff read the paper, "Buggery and Slander: The Trials and Tribulations of Moses Winter" by Guylaine Pétrin in the May edition of the Ontario Genealogical Society's journal, Families, and found out that he was related to one of the signees of the petition.
He has researched most of the early Langstaff's who came to Ontario, and if you would like to check them out, please go to his website at http://www.langstaff.net/.
In addition, Jack says that "As well, there may be Germans from Kreis Kolmar and Wirsitz who can find parts of the family in the extensive birth file".
If you go to the site, you will see genealogies for families such as KRIENKE, LONGHURST, and NEELY.
