Re: John Garber married to Barbara Zook

According to my Garber info, the John Garber who married Barbara Zook/Zug
(d/o Henry Zug) was the son of Elder Johannes Garber and Barbara Miller (d/o
Michael Miller), and the grandson of immigrant Hans Gerber. Hans was the
brother of immigrant Nicholas Gerber. Both Hans and Nicholas were
Mennonites. Elizabeth the wife of Nicholas married Michael Miller after
Nicholas died in 1748. Hans, Nicholas, Michael Miller and Samuel Bechtel
owned adjacent properties in York County. Samuel Bechtel was executor of
the will of both Hans and Nicholas. Descendents of both Hans and Nicholas
were associated with the Beaver Dam congregation in Frederick County, MD.
