You wrote: Bonnie, the answer as to whether related to Elizabeth Catherine Palm is yes and interestingly, in two different ways. My data and please be skeptical runs as follows: Elizabeth Catherine Palm m Andrew Apple in 1768 in Heidelburg Twp., Berks Co., PA and they had 11 children. The first child was John Apple who was married four times. He and his second wife had one child Sofia or Sophia, who married Jesse Smith who was my gg grandfather. Andrew and Elizabeth's 8th child was Marie Elizabeth Apple who Married Peter Emry on Nov 19, 1802 in Clermont Co., OH. Their daughter Anna Emry or Emery is also a gg grandmother of mine. Anna m Levi Bolander in 1847. Levi was the son of John Bolander who was the son of Stephen Bolander. Both John and Stephen Bolander were born in Berks Co. PA. I will share other information if you wish and I would appreciate your info on Elizabeth Catherine and John Palm who I understand was Johan. Thanks if we fit.
I know all the people you wrote about quite well, I have been working on this family for several years. What I am trying to prove that Elizabeth Catherine/Katherina ____________ Apple was a Palm? I think she was but I am looking for documents proving it. My husband is from the first marriage, I have John's marriage, to Catherine Walther's, I have copies Andrew Apple deed when he sold his land in 1790, I have copies of his father' s property, I have records of Andrew, John Henry, and Margaretha being confirmed, and so forth. I even have Stephen Bolander's son, John Adam Bolander being bapt, this Peter Bolander Sr, brother, Great Uncle to the John and Stephen Bolander, you mentioned. What I am looking for is documentation of the marriage.
