There are 4 Poorman lines established with the DAR:Daniel who m1 Barbara Hofford m2 Catherine, Jacob who m. Maria Werner, John who m. Elizabeth Croxon, and Michael who m. Maria (Mary Ann) Shope.
I am in the final stage of submittiing Supplemental lines on Peter (1717-1792) who m. Mary Catherine, Stephen who m. Anna and Melchior (son of Peter 1717-1792) who m. Elizabeth Poorman (daughter of Stephen).
I need help with the documentation of the children of Peter (1717-1792).It is only necessary that I prove Melchior, but I like to prove as many of the children as I can as this might help some one else.I have good proof on Melchior, Jacob and John William, but nothing on the others. What I have was submitted to THE POORMAN FAMILY NEWS in Feb 1985 by Glenn Poorman. ( this is the only thing I have from this newsletter and don't know anything about it).
