Eric - My grandfather's name was Franklin Pierce Maurer. My father's name was Joseph Pierce Maurer(born Dec. 15, 1898). My father had two brothers and two sisters. All were raised in the Chalfont, Horsham, Lansdale areas of Pennsylvania. My uncles were named Lyn (Lynford?), and Vincent (owned a tobacco shop in Lansdale). Aunts were Catherine and Enda. I am anxious to assemble some family history and would appreciate any input.
Also, I have an associate named Thomas Maurer who has familiy roots in the Pennsylvania Dutch area. He has a Benjamin Franklin Maurer in his family.
