I only know about my guy; Christofel Volckarth aka Christopher
Folkerth. He is found in Chester County, Pennsylvania, from the mid
1760s until the late 1780s and is found in Frederick County,
Maryland, after that ... until his 1816 death.
Don't know how he spent the first 10 years on this side of the ocean.
Indentured, I suppose. And I don't know where he was buried. But I
am still searching for clues to fill in these blanks.
Also, don't know his religion. One son, Michael (my ancestor), in
Ohio, was Brethren. Another son, John, the first Mayor of Dayton,
Ohio, was Presbyterian.
