Sorry Ralph for not remembering what work we did together with the
recs--I never got a copy so to remember since the October brain attack
difficult. But cannot find your Nearhoff owning land wcept unless
volunteers to take me to Frederick to do the research. I still am trying
the person who knew of Neirhoff/Nearhoof/Neyhoftd land tracts, sure wish
Neikirk as lots of them. Maybe someone on the list can enlighten us on
Spanogle/Spahnaugle lines from near Strayer's ?Luthrean? Church near
Oh, I still think there is a connection to the lines you descend from,
always thought they are the EBY lines from the Conestoga area of PA.
correltation with the migration to nearby Brothers Valley and all the
Brethren/River Brethren lines. Still perplexed what made some of
Co MD lines switch to Mennonite--or did they stay that and later switch
COBr? Maybe one day will find my Nusbaums as River Brethren and will
to your lines, maybe
ex-Mennonites in PA or those who would not follow Beissel--but have
up on finding any more about them or the family cem near Frederick MD.
only could get a list of the Brethren under Peter Becker and Henry Neff
would have a better idea back then from 1680-1720 right?
Sorry for only questions today and no help!
