Hi Julia; I hope your trip to Germany was all you hoped it to be. Were you able to gather any more information on our Scherrer family? I descend from Jacob Daniel Scherrer thru his daughter Elizabeth Scherrer who was born June 25, 1765 in Orange County, N.C. and died April 12, 1839 in Washington County, Illinois, She married c. 1782 in Guilford co, N. C. Conrad Goodner born November 29, 1756 in Germany (I still don't know where). He died in Tenn in 1837. From whom are you descended? I hope to hear from you.
