Phillip Senft was the son of Johan Phillip and Anna Mary Bens/Bentz Senft of York, Pa. He was born about 1756 and married to a Matlend/Madaline surname unknown. Phillip did own property in York, Pa, he decided to leave York and spent several years in Washington County, Maryland. There was a Philip/Phillip Senft from York in the American Revolution, I am not 100% sure if it was the Father or Son, most likely the son Phillip who eventually came to Fairfield Co. Ohio and setteling in the area that became Perry County. There may be some errors in the copy of the Will someone so kindly sent to me years ago. If you know of an error please let me know, so we can correct it on this messageboard.The name Senft eventually changed to Sinift in Perry Co and the Sinifts are now in all parts of this Country.The branch of the family in York Pa, still spells the name Senft. A little more on Johan Phillip Senft who immigrated on the Ship Ediburgh in 1751, Nicholas Zeigler was also on the same ship and I noticed George Zeigler was a wittness to Phillip Jrs. Will. The Senfts in York Pa were originally Coopers, (Barrell Makers) there were distilleries nearby in York, Pa. Phillip Senfts son Jacob was married to Catherine Sain.
