I live in bond County Il, and my ancestors are Henry O file. Which we have lots of information on.What I would Like to do is take it back farther. Some sent me this information and I would like to see if any one can confirm this. The Henry O. file informations is correct.
I have Henry Oliver File (b. 4 Jul 1776?, d. 18 Jun 1836 in Bond Co. IL) as the son of Jacob File (1757-1797)and Unknown mother. I have Jacob File was the son of Johannes Pieter Pfeil and he had two known siblings, George (1750-1797) and John File (b. 1755). These appear to be the three male progenitors of the File/Foil family in Cabarrus, Rowan and Stanly Co. NC I have 11 children for Henry File and his two wives. Email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will gladly share what I have.
If not does anyone have any infomration they can give me on this.Does the name File come from the name Pfiel as well?
