|Bio and Links|
I live in Maryland but my heart and much of the family I am researching is in Pennsylvania. The majority of my family is of German origin, emigrating in the early to mid 1700s. On my father's side I have a particular interest in the following families: Stine/Stein, Rittenhouse, Smith, and Hauze. On my mother's side I am deeply vested in Virginia/West Virginia and the Hite and Manning families, as well as the Strouse family in Pennsylvania.|
I have more detailed copies of photos uploaded to this site and welcome requests. If the memorial I have uploaded is not related to my family, I would be pleased to turn over ownership to a family member.
I do not mind if others use the photos I have posted for personal use, but do appreciate being credited for the photo. Simply reference that it is a photo posted on FAG by Ellen and give the date. Thank you.

I don't mind use of my photos on ancestry.com but would prefer that they be credited to "Longswamp." Thank you for asking!

The First Settlers' monument is located at the highest point in the cemetery. Near where you are overlooking the Old Ship Church. I hope to go again in the winter when the leaves are off the trees to get a good photo of that area. When I went it was too shady to get a good pic. I hope you get to visit again...it's a beautiful cemetery.

|Jennifer Boone||Peter McCord|
Sorry, I'm not a direct descendent and don't have any more information for you.
I don't know how much you know about this family. I am looking for a first wife for Peter McCord, James' father, who would have been the mother of Lydia Ann McCord, born 1828 (so Barbara would have been too young). I have a birth certificate for Lydia's daughter Emma Jean/Jane Knittle, stating Emma Jean was the daughter of Lydia, whose father was Peter McCord. It does not give her mother.
I also have a birth certificate connected to this family written in German which references the Peifer (Pfeiffer) family that I have not been able to place, and so am looking for info on the Peifer family as well. It is a daughter Evilyn? born to Thomas (hard to read, something like Tays?) and Maria Pfeiffer in 1828 in Columbia County.
If you don't know, no problem, I just thought it was worth a shot.
|Romaine Stauffer||RE: Amos Good|
Thanks. You've got the documents and I believe you are right.
I'm still working on the article. I decided to add a genealogy at the end which is taking some time but it's getting closer to finished. Your ancestor is 1727 immigrant Peter Good but by a different path and not through his son Christian.
|Romaine Stauffer||Amos Good|
Find A Grave Memorial# 23688745
Do you have something to document that this Amos Good in Lehigh County is the son of Henry and Ann (Stirk) Good?
According to Lancaster County deed T8-529 dated April 1, 1852, related to the settlement of the estate of Amos's grandfather Peter Good, Amos was living in Naiperville, DuPage County, Illinois. His uncle Jonathan Good was also living at the same place in Illinois.
|Gloria||RE: Engle edits|
I have about 1,000 or so links, can you send me the one for Engle that has the 1776 stone reference. I will see what I can find our for you.

|Romaine Stauffer||Henry Good|
I'm still working on this but am pretty sure I have untangled these two Henrys and know who both their fathers are. I'm waiting to publish it until everything is 100% confirmed.
Six Goods is a valuable work but it contains some mistakes and this Henry is one of the most garbled people in it.
I'm working on an article on these Goods which will probably be published in the October issue of Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage magazine. Hang on and keep checking back.
|K Robinson||RE: Christofel and Eva Stein|
You are welcome! :D It is so nice when someone has the little piece that it is driving you crazy to not be able to find.
Yes, I am a Stein. Jacob Stein (1757), son of Johannes of Pinegrove is my 5 g-grandfather.
Hope you learned a lot at your conference!
|K Robinson||Christofel and Eva Stein|
Thanks for your work on the Steins. I have been researching them on and off for several years. I noticed that there is no last name for Christoph (or Christofel)Stein's wife Eva. It is Eva Stroh. (My records do not include the Maria that shows on her Find A Grave entry.)
"Stein, Johann Heinrich s. Christoph and Eva, born Stroh; b. Aug. 1, 1807,; bap. Aug 16, 1807. Sp. Eva Elisabeth Schmidt." p. 71
"Stein, David s. Christoph and Eva, born Stroh; b. Nov. 25, 1814; bap. Sept 30, 1816; Sp. John and Elisabeth Achi." p. 109
