Many of the Platters in the United States were descendants ofJoseph Platter and his wife, Anna Barbara [Luckebilen] Platter, who came from what is now Germany in 1765. They first lived in Frederick County, Maryland, and later in Washington County, Pennsylvania. Joseph Platter's brother, Nicholas,came to America in 1750 and is believed to have also lived in Frederick County and WashingtonCounty. This Platter family originated in Switzerland and had only lived in German regions for a few generations when Nicholas Platter and later Joseph and Anna Barbara Platter came to America.
This forum has received messages from two people in England, but you are the first one from Italy. I am always impressed that so many Europeans can read and write in English. I only know a few words of Italian and that's because I studied art history for many years.
