You might also check the records in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. There were Leathermans in Fayette County and surrounding counties.
I am a descendent of German Baptist ancestors including Mosers, Custers,
Longeneckers, Macks, and Leathermans. I am a descendent of Daniel Leatherman, a
minister in Maryland who died in 1798 married to Catherine.
I am new so I was searching the archives for him and found some good
information, but I had some questions.
What does it mean that he was the Bishop of Seven Churches? Was he a circuit
riding preacher going from church to church or did he oversee the pastors of
those seven churches? How many of those churches in Maryland did he have a
part in their starting or founding?
One email in the archives stated that he came over with his father Hans
Devalt Leatherman on the ship "James Goodwill" on Sept. 27, 1727. Where was this
ship coming from? Was he part of the community of Brethren with Alexander Mack
in Holland? Was the ship carrying a group of Brethren from Europe fleeing
religious persecution and looking for a better life in America? Was his father
also a German Baptist?
And some emails in the archives refer to an Elder Daniel Leatherman. Am I
correct to assume that this is the same Leatherman or was there another
clergyman with the same name?
