Ann Have you checked out this? http://www.rootsweb.com/~kypendle/ammerman2.htmhttp://www.rootsweb.com/~kypendle/ammerman2.htm I saw Ida and James on this site. I also am working on my Ammerman line. My grandfather way back is Jonathan C. Earlesb. 1 Oct 1852, married to Nancy Ammerman b. 3 Aug 1852 m. 10 Nov 1870. Her parents were Philip Ammerman and Nancy B. Woodward.Could we be from the same line?
