Looking for descendants of Ephraim Myers s/o Hannah Pfoutz and David Myers
who were married March 11, 1825. Hannah was d/o Mary Diehl and Rev. David
Pfoutz.Hannah died March 20, 1827 and David Myers later married Elizabeth
Miller daughter of Abraham and Elizabeth Crumbaker Miller and a first
cousin to his first wife Hannah. I think Ephraim Myers was Hannah's only
child. Any descendants of Ephraim?Also looking for descendants of Elizabeth
Pfoutz born April 20, 1796 Adams Co., Pa. Married Daniel Brown March 16,
1818 and died Sept. 23, 1863. Lived in Pike Creek section of Carroll Co.,
Md. They had 6 children:Maria, David, Jacob, Susan, Catherine and
Elizabeth.Am also looking for other people who are researching John Pfoutz
and Rachel Lahman descendants. They had 13 children.They are both buried at
Marsh Creek Brethern Cemetary on Black Horse Tavern Road, SE of Gettysburg,
