| Most of my ancestors came from Dorrance, Hollenback, Hanover and Newport Townships in Luzerne County, PA.I have over 260 surnames.|
For many, many important and private reasons, I haven't really done much research for the past ten years.This summer of 2005, I am taking a break in my studies for my Master's degree and picking up this hobby that I've almost forgotten how to do!Please bear with me as I relearn a few things.
This is one of my brick walls:
I am researching the ECKROTE family in PA.Daniel ECKROTE was born ca. 1808 and Lydia BITTENBENDER was b. 22 JAN 1809.They m. about 1830 and had eleven children: Ella m. Jonas HELLER; Joseph m. Messianna HOTTENSTEIN; Catherine; Stephen m. Lovina BUCHMAN; Jacob; Maria; Moses; Nathan; Mary m. George BUCHMAN; Lydia; and Aaron m. Amanda KNELLY.They resided in Luzerne County, PA, mostly in Dorrance, Nescopeck, Conyngham, and Hobbie Townships.I am particulary interested in proof of Daniel's parents.I am very willing to share information.
