I've been unsuccessfully hunting for the origins of George Shuler (b. PA about 1784, wife Mary from VA, most of children born in Rockbridge, VA in early 1800's, settled Cheshire, Gallia Co, Ohio abt 1819).
Trying alternate spellings for Shuler (ie shooler, etc) I found the following:
George Shewler State - Pennsylvania County - Philadelphia Co. Location - Philadelphia Census/Ennumeration Year - 1738
George Shewler, age 30, is further listed as one of about 109 Palatine immigrants on board the vessel "Nancy".This ship was "Qualified" on Sep 20, 1738; came to Philadelphia from Rotterdam via Dover, England.Ref. Pennsylvania German Pioneers, page 104.George Shewler, age 30, is listed as having taken the Oath of Allegiance.
There are barely a handful of other "Shewler" surname entries to be found in any database search which makes me believe that "Shewler" was likely a phonetic misspelling of "Shuler".(One interesting Shewler listing is for John Shewler of Bucks Co., PA in the 1800 Census.Some researchers have claimed George Shuler was born in Bucks Co in 1784.)
I would like to know if other Shuler researchers have already resolved this possible Shewler-Shuler connection.
