Great digging on the extended Mack family! Also a very good start to
uncovering what I have called the "Schneider-Kitzmiller-Mack Nexus." Now
the marriage between old Kitzmiller and Anna Margaret Mackin makes perfect
sense since she was an "old" widow. I had presumed that she was a sister to
all the other Mack women on the Ship Allen rather than their widowed mother.
Thanks for this new (to me) information.
Do you know whether or not the Christian Schneider (who married Susanna
Mack) was the same Christian Schneider who lived in Earl Township near the
Kitzmillers and their Mack wives? I think that William Thomas (of this
list) may have addressed this issue in one of his posts or at least he may
have some good clues about it. If you have already told the Pennsylvania
story of Christian and Susanna [Mack] Schneider, would you please tell it
