Date: Wed, 30 Apr 2003 20:48:03 EDT
I am new to the list, but have been trying to find information about
ancestors who where members of the United Brethren Church or Dunkers. I have
the Allegeheny Passage which is a book written by Emmert F. Bittinger. It is
about the church and families in the West Marva District of W.Va.years
1752-1990. Also I have a History of the East Pennsylvania Conference by
Phares Brubaker Gibble. The book starts in the beginning with the Lancaster
circuit of East Pennsylvania 1800 ending with 1946. The book gives
information concerning the affairs of the church and history along with names
of promenient members. I would be willing to look up information for those
who might be interested in those areas.
I am trying to gain information about my David Hershey and Magdelena Hershey
families who went to Washington, Maryland They are both decendants of John
B. Hershey son of Preacher Andrew Hershey, who came from Switzerland in 1719
with his father Hans Hersche and brother Benjamin. Also need information on
the Rhorer family of Washington, Maryland.
Also information about Henry Purgett or (Burkhardt) who was born in Frederick
town, Maryland abt 1753. His name is mentioned in the Allegeheny Passage.
Need information about who his father was and also more info on is family,
Thank you, Jan Wanstrom
