My immigrant FEARY ancestor is John, or Johannes, born in Germany , probably abt. 1755. His grandson's bio states that he came here after the Rev War, but he isn't found on any ship's passenger lists, so my thought is that he may have been a Hessian soldier who deserted or simply stayed after the war ended. He married first in 1787, Margrith YORGY; second, in 1791, Barbara SPEIDEL; and third, about 1798, Elizabeth KEPLER (Roth)(Drenkel). His heirs, listed in his will of 1842 Berks Co., were:
Sarah, who married John GRESH. Henry, who married Elizabeth . Barbara, who married a KEISER.
Son Henry, b. abt. 1795, had ch:
Jeremiah E., b. 1817 Rebecca, b. 1820, Md. Rubin ZEIGLER. Elizabeth, b. 1823, d. 1844, md. Wm. G. BURNS. Harriet, b. 1826, d. 1890, md. Wm. G. BURNS. Sarah, b. 1829, md. Charles LOCHMAN. Charles E., B. 1832, d. 1907, md. Mary JOHNSON. Maria, md. Samuel FOX.
I have traced the descendants of Jeremiah, Harriet, and Charles down a couple of generations. Would like to hear from anyone working on this family.
