Confirmation from the Sarah Hill family (who married Gideon) has Samuel and Sophia listed as his parents. I've just found the whole list of their children: Susan; Rosina; Rosanna; Phillip: Lydia; Michael; maria; John C. who Married Mary a Obenour; John; Jacob; Gideon; Findley; Elizabeth; Daniel; Christiana; Catherine; Andreas (Andrew).
If this Samuel is of the Balthasar line, who are his parents, grand parents and ggrandparents? I think these three generations will connect the to the present day.
Bye the way Rosanna Fetterman married William F. Frank on 11/3/1853 he of Rayne Twp and she of Green Twp.
Daniel Fetterman married Rachel bowers, 2/17/1855 by a. Wiggins, Esq. both of Cherryhill Twp.
Let me know if you can go back further than Samuel and Sophia. Thanks, Janet
