I am not related. http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~preplogl/Philip.htmlhttp://homepages.rootsweb.com/~preplogl/Philip.html JOHN PHILIP REPLOGLE, POLITICAL ACTIVIST: ESTABLISHING AN IDENTITY by Paul H. Replogle 1994
Margaret married about 1772, so would have been listed under her husband as head of household, Peter Roof, presumably at Bedford Co., Pa.
According to Paul Ruff, genealogist on the Roof line, Peter Roof (who married Rinehart, Sr. daughter Margaret) had brothers by that name ... and Peter and his two brothers were in the Bedford County, Pa. militia during the Revolutionary War."
There may have been a special relationship between John Philip (born about 1754) and his sister Margaret (born about 1756). They were the first two children of John Rinehart born in America and close in age. Madeline Raymond has commented about John Henry's apparent close ties to ****Margaret Replogle Roof*** , daughter of John Rinehart:
The following are Rooth family records; there is a **ROOF** family in Huntingdon/Bedford Counties. I cannot locate a "ROOTH" FAMILY.
"Saturday February 8th 1777 ... Ordered that ... Philip Reaplogle, Nicholas Roof & Matthias Roof and each of them be notified to be and appear before Committee on Monday next ready equipped and forthwith march to join their respective Companies at Camp, agreeable to the Condition of their Bonds ..." The location was Elizabeth Town, Md.
She also notes John Philip and Peter Roof's (husband of Margaret) brothers Matthais and Nicholas Roof all deserting during the Revolutionary War and brought up on the same charges; and Peter Roof' being in the same military unit as his brothers.
In studying the 1820 census of Washington Co., Northern Township., Md., Madeline Raymond noticed some Replogle-related neighbors who are found a few pages around the entry for John Henry's name:
