NEW FAMILY INFORMATION
Glen Huffmann of Washington, D.C. is a descendant of Peter
and Catherine Hull. He sent data that Catherine's parents, Peter
and Susanna M. Dieffenbach, were married 25 November 1750 at
Lutheran Church in Lancaster Co.,,PA. No doubt these added
be of interest to all of you.
Carole Blanscet of Tustin, CA sent several pieces of
one of which was transcribed from LDS microfilm #818705 of
County, West Virginia records. Volume II Deeds 1833-38, page 390
recorded on 30 December 1835, says:

Mrs. Blanscet also found an un-named Ziegenfuss in a book
Pennsylvania Archives, 5th Series, Volume 4, Page 785. He had
at age 22 on 30 September 1783 under Major James Moore. He was a
potter by trade. His name, which I don't know, may not be as
know as his birthplace. I thought it interesting that it said he
in Gothern in Germany.
Of more importance (?) is this excellent information from
Hundred Years of Christian Service 1751-1951", History of St.
Lutheran Church,, Kellers Church, PA. It says that in September
of the deacons was:
"Andrew Ziegenfuss, b. 1726,, at Beydenkirchen in
Married Anna Magdalene Laurenz. They had two children by 1752,
to Pennsylvania in 1738."
This is the last (planned) newsletter, I'm sorry to say.
Time is just
too hard to find to continue. I thank all of you for your help
and I hope
the information shared has been of help to you.
