I repost this reply I had to the Anna-Barbara Fetterman post.She would be a sister of Johann- Philip Fetterman who my book says was born May 8, 1783 in Montgomery Co. Pa.married Sara Mary Dannehower. The original spelling was said to be "Vetterman" which may come from the German word "vetter' meaning weather.Tradition indicated that Balthasar, his wife, and young son Cassimer, left from the port of Rotterdam in the early summer of 1750 on the ship Patience to escape persecution.They arrived at the port of Philadelphia on Aug 11, 1750.His first wife died shortly after arrival.Balthasar settled settled in the Maxatawny Valley of Berks County and later remarried. The book I have begins with a translated copy of his last will and testament which must have been published on Aug 6, 1796.
