Very interested in your post about the family of Jacob Edeborn, and of your ancestor, Mary Attaburn/Edeburn--even if I am a bit late in finding it! :>)
My Arterburn (also Atterburn) family line has not been successfully traced beyond American shores, even though we've found one Arterburn in London (1676) and some Atterborns there.
I've recently launched a DNA project in hope of breaking through this barrier.Some of us think that "Edeborn/Edeburn" might be a good prospect for sharing a common ancestor in Germany.You can see our results to date at the website:
Could you help us find a proven male descendant of Jacob who might be willing to participate in a DNA test (at my expense)?The results might give Edeburn descendants some insights about their heritage, and I can assure you that Arterburn descendants would be grateful!
