I am from the family of Lloyd Derflinger of Front Royal, Virginia. I am presently researching my family roots and going back to find the first Derflinger/ Doerflinger person and or family that came to the United States. If you have information on the first Derflinger families of the U.S., please pass it along. My research so far leads me to several original German Derflinger's who moved from Germany to Bucks County, Pennsylvania in the 1700's. I have not made a direct connection with anyone yet but ship passenger's lists and Church records have lead me to believe my original descendents were from Blankenloch, Germany. Two name have come to my attention as possibilities they are Friededrich Dorflinger who came to the U.S. in 1750 and Johannes Dorflinger who came in 1753. Both of these German Dorflinger's/Doerflinger's were from Blankenloch, Germany and they settled in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
My grand father was Walter Derflinger of Front Royal. My G,G, Grandfather was George W. Derflinger (b. 1853-d.1915)he is buried in Reliance, Virginia.
I would appreciate any information on my family or other possible related families. I would also be happy to share my research and information of the Derflinger's. Thank You!
