Here is my Obit for my Mary Catherine Silvernail.Now, the Silvernail Longhouse, was where the Warner Brethern was attempting to preach and or convert.This is a native american name, it is Iriquois (Mohawk).
They often changed their names to more american or German sounding names:Hence the Slivernagel sp you may see.
This all lines up with Nathan and Daniel Warner who did travel back and forth to the Longhouses from OH to NY, if you look up the Silvernail Tribe from NY they just had a historic long house added to the Society last year.
I was always told, that I had Native American ties.I knew that somewhere I would find that link.This is that link. Research online through Wiki or other Native american History and the Warner Brethren (Monrovia church) and their dealings with the Native Americans.Start with the Monrovia travels from Germany & Polland and Czech to OH.From their they do branch out, all the way to NY at times to teach their religion.Silvernail is Iriquois.And I am so very proud to find this connection in my heritage.I knew it was there, I just didn't know I'd ever find a name.Research the Silvernail Long House in NY, and all the things you can find on the trades going on during that time.The Warners did Not Fight; for America as they did Align themselves with their church and the Native American Indians.Both, refused to fight for American's and aligned with the French and Brits.
