Swatara he we come...
Johannes I purchased 290 acres on March 1, 1744 at the confluence of Swatara and Monroe creeks. Eventually his son, Johannes II purchased his property just south and east of his father's on Monroe creek. Bethel Moravian is just to the north of their properties.

Our new Pennsylvania gazetteer arrived today and I've been busily researching the Lickdale area.
I noticed there are two campgrounds nearby, and knowing that the area is also noted for its excellent fossil hunting, we're thinking early May would be a good time for outdoor activities.

Would love to meet up with you there or introduce ourselves to other distant kinfolk who are also interested in family research.

My husband and I live in Northern Virginia and I started working on his family tree in 2007. The following is his direct line, much of the information I found in James E Landis' book, Spitler Family History in the DAR library in Washington, D. C.

Hans Spittler 1689-1736 Basil, Switzerland
Johannes Spittler I 690-1757 Bethel PA
Johannes Spittler II 1718-1757 Bethel PA
Jacob Spittler 1756-1826 Botetourt, VA
John Spitler 1788-1874 Clay OH
Andrew Spitler 1818-1891 Clay OH
Dr Charles Elmer Spitler 1863-1941 Saratoga IN
Dr Lloyd Lollar Spitler 1903-1978 Kettering OH
Rev Thomas Lloyd Spitler 1929-2001 Cincinnati OH
Thomas Lloyd Spitler 1951

We're hoping to visit the Swatara area in the near future and absorb some of the family vibes, take some pictures and, of course, eat!
