The book is PALATINE ORIGINS OF SOME PENNSYLVANIA PIONEERS by Annette
Kunselman Burgert, FGSP, FASG, and published by AKB Publications of
Myerstown, PA in 2000. Note says it is available from AKB Publications , 691
Weavertown Road, Myerstown, PA 17067-2642. I paid about $45 for mine.

Her stuff is good because she lists both the European sources and the
American sources and ties them together.

There is also an appendix with some Mohler listings, giving parents, Palatine
Village, Year, Type of record, and Swiss village.

Mathes Mohler doesn't have a parent listed, alas, but she does cite his
burial record in 1712, indicates he was at Hassloch in the Palatinate, but
only gives "Switzerland" as point of origin.

However, children of Mathes Mohler are also listed in this chart: Johann
Georg, Anna Elisabetha, Henrich, and Johann Henrich Mohler. Surprisingly,
all the kids are from "Switzerland," EXCEPT Henrich, who has a notation
"CH-4000 Basel."
Probably something in the introduction explains what this means specifically
and what that Basel connenction indicates.

Happy hunting.
