About Our Family Research


Some Names in PALE's Genealogy: AGER, ALBRIGHT, ALLISON, BARNHART, BEST, BIGGS, BOWER, BRITTAIN, BRITTON, BROWN, BRUGLER, BUTT, CLIFF, COLE, COLEMAN, COURSON, CRAVER, DAVIS, DEGRAW, DEMOTT, DIRCKS, DOAN, EAGER, EDGAR, EDWARDS, ENGLE, EVANS, FARVER, FRUTSCHIE, GODHARD, GOTTHARDT, GODDARD, HALDI, HEIM, HESS, HILL, HODGE, HULSHIZER, JOHNSON, JONES, KEHLER, KISNER, KLINE, KRAMER, KUNKLIN, LABAR, LARGE, LARISH, LAUBACH, LONG, LUNDY, LYON, MCDONALD, MCHENRY, MCNEAL, MANNING, MANNON, MAUSTELLER / MOSTELLER, MOESCHING, MOORE, PARKER, PEGG, REED, REESER, RHINARD, RICHART, ROBBINS, SHAFFER, SHULTZ, SITLER, SMITH, VANDERBEEK, WARNER, WENNER, WESBROUCK, YOUNG, ZIMLER and many more.

Most, but not all, of the families on my father's [LAUBACH / HESS / McHENRY / COLE / etc.] side migrated from the Easton, Northampton County, Pennsylvania, area to Northeastern Columbia County in the late 1700's to the early 1800's and lived in the Benton / Cole's Creek [Cole town] / Central / Waller areas -- mostly Sugarloaf, Fishing Creek and Jackson Townships. The LAUBACH and HESS families are of German origin. The McHENRYs are from County Antrim in Northern Ireland. The COLE family, sometimes also spelled KOLE or KOOL, are Netherlands Dutch and came to New Amsterdam [now New York] area very early with the "India" Company.

My mother's side [FARVER / DAVIS / MANNING / SITLER / etc.] also lived in Columbia County, mostly in Berwick [and just outside Berwick in the small, very Welsh community of Summer Hill] and in Briar Creek and Greenwood Townships. We believe FARVER to be Germanic, but I have no proof at this time. DAVIS is Welsh. MANNING is Irish, originally spelled MANNION and MANNON. I'm uncertain about SITLER.

Some associated names I am researching which are not directly in my lines [so far] include: ALBERTSON, BARTLESON, BEATY, COLLEY, COULSTON, CUTTER, FOULKE, JACKSON, KILE, PETERMAN, PARSONS, PENNINGTON, POTTS, RHOADS [possibly], ROBINSON, THOMAS, TURNER, WAGER [**NOT** "WAGNER"], WHITEMAN, etc. Many of these families lived in the Philadelphia, PA, area in the late 1700's / early 1800's; many also later migrated to Columbia County, PA.

This site was begun 18 July 2005. I hope to add many resources over the next few months, so please continue to check back. I am involved in quite a few projects, and may not be able to answer your e-mails promptly, if at all. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Please search for my name to find my two prior PALE pages (circa 2000) for additional information. I always appreciate information and corrections or additions, but **PLEASE** send me your sources. You are very welcome to copy and share any of my research, but, again, **please** include the sources, not just my name as a source. Thank you! Also, please note that I can no longer correct the earlier web sites, only this page.

Thanks for visiting!
