Hi Penny! I was glad to see another posting to the Etling genealogy forum. The Etlings I
am researching are all from the Fayette Co. PA area. I imagine your Philip Etling's people
were from Fayette Co. PA originally. There is a book called In Search of the Etling
Genealogy (1787-1981) compiled by Freda Etling Keck in 1981. I have only seen part
of it (a cousin made copies of relevant pages for me). There may be additional information
in the book that may lead you to your Philip. The book is hard to find, but I do know that
there are copies at the Uniontown Public Library, Uniontown, Fayette Co., PA and at the
LDS Library in Utah.
Here's some early Etling info. that may be of interest to you:
