Beatys and their connections, the Rayburns and Dysarts, also a large connection of the Berry family; five or six Lowrey families; the Sharps and Laughlins, a large connection, including the Kings and Youngs. These Youngs were not the German family, they were of Irish descent. I have named such as occurs to me, but that the reader may know who were the heads of families that composed the Rev. Charles Cummings' congregation at Sinking Spring, in the Grace Spring neighborhood, I will give a list of their names, and it must be remembered that they were all Presbyterians.

LATE ARRIVALS AFTER -1783 German families, as far as I can now call their names to mind, were the Fleenors, a large family, the Gobblers, Mungles, Sydars, Huntsuckers, Kaylors, Whisenands, Davaults, Funkhousers, Kniceleys, Lindamoods, Statyers, Zimerlies, Teetors, Goodmans, Shelleys, Munfours, Jinks and Droakes, who came to the county some years afterwards. There are others, whose names I cannot just now recollect. (Gov. David Campbell)
EXCERPTS FROM GOV CAMPBELL WASHINGTON CO. THE GOVERNOR NOTED THAT THE GERMAN TEETERS CAME LATER BEFORE THE 1770 SETTLERS .
