For those interested in the families of Joseph Geren and Samuel Geren, Jr. of Marietta, OH, the following info comes from the Genealogical Correspondence of George Washington Hill (microfilm, Family History Library, Salt Lake City)."Samuel Gerin born 1786 in Maryland. Died 1861 Marr. O."&"Joseph Gerin Born June 19, 1788 Fort Loril Hills Pen."
Most who follow this family believe Joseph and Samuel were from PA.Perhaps someone who knows western PA well would know about "Fort Loril Hills" (sic).Perhaps "Loril" should read Laurel.This name occurs in Westmoreland County, PA.
