I have Christian Burkhalter, b. 3 Feb 1783, who married Elizabeth Bowman as
the son of Ulrich Burkhalter, b. 1737, d. 1804 in Brecknock Township,
Lancaster, PA and married to Anna [Musselman?]. This Ulrich was a Mennonite
minister at Bowmansville. His parents were Ulrich Burkhalter, b. 11 Feb 1700
in Ruderswil, Bern, Switzerland and Barbli. Barbli, a widow, came to America
on the ship "Phoenix" arriving Philadelphia 1 Oct 1754. Barbli died in
Groffdale near her son Christian, b. 1 June 1746 who married Anna Groff
(Graff). Ulrich, b. 1700 was the son of Bebdict Burkhalter, b. 1 Dec 1661 in
Ruderswil and Anna Kohler. Benedict was the son of Joseph Burkhalter and
Elisabeth Widmer, daughter of Elias Widmer.

Thanks!
