The Jacob Groff Herr Family of Lancaster, Pa.Updated April 21, 2009
- "Genealogical Record of Rev. Hans Herr and His Lineal Descendants", by Theodore W. Herr, Genealogist, 1908
- "The Genealogical Record of the Descendants of John R. Shenk (1827-1896)", by John and Audrey Shenk, 1985 contributed by Jean Marguerite (Meyer) Herr
- Information contributed by Al Boulanger, P.O.Box 6428, Fishers, Indiana 46038, 2000
- Information from FamilyTreeMaker Genealogy Report,
"Descendants of John Herr, Lord of Bilried" obtained through the home page of Michael A. Smoke, Seattle WA, 12/31/2002
- Copies of appropriate pages from the family bible of Rudolph S. and Magdalena (Landis) Herr sent to me by Jean Marguerite (Meyer) Herr who received them from Barbara Ann (Herr) Ranck. As it turns out, these were some of the most important documents that were needed to complete the tree. The Theodore W. Herr book referenced above does not show all of Rudolph S. Herr's family on page 165.These pages from his bible filled the gap.Thank you, Aunt Jean and Barbara!
Please note: Fannie Martin (d. 1803) was either the wife of Abraham Herr (b. 1724), or the second wife of Abraham B. Herr (1700 - 1785). I found both versions of this information during my research. Her offspring, however, are as shown in the tree. Also note, there are actually three different paths that we can use to trace our lineage back to Bishop Hans Herr and beyond.
If you see errors or omissions, please let me know so that I can keep this branch of the John Herr, Lord of Bilried, Family Tree as accurate and current as possible.
