Date: Mon, 06 Apr 1998 09:47:45 -0700
I am new to the list, And I have found many posts interesting and
useful. Thank you for all the time taken to post.
I am currently working on several family names: Vanderslice,
Custer/Kuster, Umstead, Urner, Price/Priesz, Lane, Horning, Becker,
Sauer, Partman, Frick, Rinehart, Harley, Weicker, Pennepacker, Daecher.
My ancestor lines were Friends or Brethren up until about 1880, when my
great great grandfather married a jewish/polish girl and left the
I have a copy of the "The Price Family" published in 1927. And have
been very fascinated with Penn. history, my grandfather is still alive
and is currently living in Phoenixville, he was born in the Pennepacker
homestead. Just 3 miles from where he lives now, his family has lived in
the area for over 300 years.
I am looking for others who have information to share on any of the
names I have mentioned above, and I also have been collecting
information on many names besides my own. Currently I have a data base
of 40,000 early penn. settlers.
I am looking forward to reading the posts on this newsletter.
