My ancestor is Abraham Mest born about 1799 or 1800 according to Census files.He and Hannah were the parents of Daniel H. Mest 2/17/29 according to Daniel's headstone at Huff's Church in Berk's County.I have been trying to find more info. on Abraham and Hannah.The only reason I haven't been sure that he was the son of George Henry, is that the family history is that the first Mest in US of our family was a Hessian soldier. Of course, that was just a story. Are George Henry and Henry(aka Hener, Henner, or Heinrich in various sources) the same person? Henry is listed with wife Eva as parents of other Mests baptized late 1700's and eary 1800's according to church records I've seen? I haven't yet found records of George Henry's children. I just did a little research on a trip to Allentown.I know that Elias was buried at DeLong's Reformed Church in Bowers. Berks, Co. with inscription "Hier ruhet Elias Mest und seine 4 sohne."George Henry was baptized at the same church (listed as Elias Miest and wife) on 11/16/1766. I have also found the name written as Maest in record books as well as on my great-great grandfather's fraktur birth/baptism record.He is also buried at Huff's church along with his wife Lydia Fronheiser. The two families seem to have lived next to each other for many years. Let me know what info you have to help me make sure this is the right Abraham.The names seem right, but everyone seemed to have the same names in families then!
