Archibald Felker married Catherine Garver.
Son John D. Felker married Mary Jane Lipe.
Mary Jane Lipe is daughter of Simon Lipe & Lydia S. Freeze.
Lydia S. Freeze is daughter of Caleb Freeze & Mary Wilhelm.
Peter Freeze was married to Penelope Bostian about 1783. Penelope was born about 1764. There is much confusion among Freeze researchers as these family duplicated names often. Peter and Penelope (Bostian) Freeze are the parents of Caleb Freeze who married Mary "Polly" Wilhelm.
Caleb and Mary "Polly" Freeze are the parents of Lydia S. Freeze who married Simon J. Lipe. Simon and Lydia are the parents of Mary Jane Lipe who married John D. Felker..son of Archibald and Catherine (Garver) Felker.
Archibald W. Felker's parents are Jacob Felker and the elusive Elizabeth Freeze. Elusive in that we haven't positively identified her family. I currently believe she is the daughter of
John Freeze and Barbara Sechler. Jacob Felker's parents are Johannes "John" Voelker/Felker and Margaretha "Margaret" Bostian believed to be 1st cousin to Penelope Bostian Freeze. Ahhh the tangled webs...
Now, to add to this interesting mix of families... Catherine's brother William David Garver married Mary Elizabeth Freeze...sister of Lydia S. Freeze.
I will also mention I'm not "attached" to my research...meaning I'm open for comments, corrections, additons!
Hope this helps,
