I have been researching these various family lines for about twelve years. Most of my ancestral lines presently go back to the 1700's, some as early as the 1500's.
Earliest known ancestors as of Nov, 2002:
Rutter: John appears in Land Records, then Frederick Co., MD in 1738. During the 1780's, my line appears in Huntingdon Co., PA. Includes possible connection to earlier Rutter (John, Richard, Edmund) in eastern Maryland, Dorchester/Somerset Counties, late 1600's.
Krill: In Germany, late 1700's.
Rupert: John appears in Huntingdon Co., PA, about 1784.
Chilcote: John appears in Baltimore area of MD, early 1700's, following his sentence to Barbados for taking part in the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685.
Goshorn: Came from Germany, appear in Huntingdon Co., PA, late 1700's.
