descend from Michael, the oldest brother that came over in 1731, aboard the "Brittania" and landed in Philadelphia. Later moved to Frederick County, Maryland. A Dr. George DeVilbiss of Maryland did some excellent work and I recall the Ferreling sur name as being in his work. The above information concerning Micheal is valid for 2 or 3 other brothers. I'm rather sure that one of their names was Adam and that Adam that married Anna was fourth or fifth generation.
