Re: West Rhine River Valley Germany/1753/Ship to America
Thank you, I went to encarta and read that info and I'll follow up on it. I couldn't access worldbook, I'm not a subscriber there. I did already know that the name was spelled Treffenstatt on the "Captain's List" but I don't know if Christian spelled it or if someone wrote it phonetically. I havefollowed the family here in America but know nothing of him or family in Germany. I'm just 'fishin' for info on the Germany and Immagrant's Forums now.
Could you tell me where would I find a copy of the book you mention, Strassburger and Hinke's "Pennsylvania German Pioneers"? Also is there anything else in it about the Treffenstatts?
Christian was my gggg grandfather.
