> I am looking for information on Jacob GHER and his wife Loretta. They
> left PA around 1830 and moved to OH where their first three children
> were born. They finally settled in Lawrence County IL. Jacob GHER and
> his wife deeded land from their farm for the Sand Barren Brethern
> Church. I know they were very active in this church.
> In Lawrence County, they had four more children. On the 1880 Census for
> Lawrence County, Jacob and Loretta(Hetty) were living with their oldest
> daughter, Susannah (Mrs.James Highsmith.) On this census Jacob states
> that he was born in PA and also both of his parents. Loretta states
> that she was born in PA and her father in IRE and mother in PA. Would
> you have any information on their parents?
> I have been receiving the BRETHERN list for a week. I find all the
> genealogies so very interesting. Thanks for all the good work.
