I've read through enough of the posts on this list to know that these of my families settled and/or passed through several of the townships in York and Lancaster Counties and beyond. I would very much like to tap into your collective knowledge about any or all of these families regardless of the spellings of the surnames.
Mary Elizabeth ALBRIGHT, b. 1758 York Co., PA; m. Valetine Irvin WYSONG Sr in 1777 York Co., PA. Mary died 1825 (place unk). Valetine, b. 1744 Manchester Twp, York(?) Co.,PA (one ref says Lancaster Co., but I find no Manchester Twp in present day Lancaster Co.); d. Jun 1824 White River Twp, Randolph Co., IN. The family lived for a time in Franklin Co. VA. One son (ancestor) that I have info on is Henry WYSONG Sr, b. 15 Oct 1794, Franklin Co., VA. Several of the Wysong men were smithys, having established the Wysong Blacksmith Shop that still exists in Fincastle, Botetourt Co., VA.Mary and Valentine's other children besides Henry were: Valentine, Jacob, Elizabeth, Lewis, Catherine, John and David.Who are Mary's parents, siblings?
The next parent that I'm seeking more info about is Valentine's mother: Mary Susan HAMMER, b. 1710 Hanover, Heidelburg Twp, York Co., PA.[I question that she was born in PA. If her parents are the Reinhart and Susan Maria HAMMER that arrived on the "Allen" from Rotterdam in 1729, she would have been abt 19. There are no other Hammers listed among the passengers.] Mary wed Ludwig Vincent WYSONG Jr abt 1736 in York Co., PA. Mary and Ludwig lived out their years, died and are buried in the Hanover, Heidelburg Twp., PA area. Ludwig on 29 Sep 1784, Mary in 1788. Would lilke to know more about their children and both sets ofof parents - Reinhart and Susan HAMMER and Ludwig V WYSONG Sr and Mrs Mary WYSONG (as she's listed on other charts - was she nee Wysong or had she previously married a Wysong before marrying Ludwig?).
I feel certain that these ancestors of mine are part of the families of the same names found in York Co., PA and thereabout. Any further info concerning them and their families will be greatly appreciated.
