What was the relationship between your John Philip Boehm and the family
of: "Jacob Boehm, of a respectable family in Switzerland, and was a
strict member of the Reformed Church; his son, also Jacob Boehm, who came
to America in 1715; and Martin Boehm (son of Jacob Boehm, jr.), a
Mennonite" in Lancaster, PA, who, with Philip William Otterbein,
organized "that other" church, the United Brethren in Christ church?
