Etta, Phillip Gortner was born 15 Oct 1766, Manchester, Carroll Co., MD to Jacob Gortner and Anna Catherina Ottin. I haven't been able to go back further although I did find a Jacob being naturalized in Heidleberg Twp, Northhampton Co., PA.Could be ours but no proof.Time right.There were lots of Outens in Maryland but have found no connection.
Phillip married Catherine Gutelach, 16 Feb 1785, 1st German Reformed Church, Baltimore, MD.The only possibility of her parents I have found was a Thomas Gotlock who was listed on the early rent rolls of Maryland.
I have some on your line but would like the opportunity to check it with yours.Would you like my address or E-mail. If you could send a copy I would note any differences and return.Joyce
