I am also looking to trace back to this area where I believe Jacob Baldy (d1758) came from originally.He came to Philadelphia around 1730 and is the first so far in a ten generation lineage that we have found. My line goes..Jacob/Mary Sophia..Jacob/Anna Maria..Paul/Mary Ream..Daniel/Christina Shafer..Andrew/Henrietta..William Howard/Margaret Schuck..William Howard/Pearl Haupt..Dorothy Baldy/Nicholas Budano... It is far more difficult to locate answers for the women in the line ie. my grandmother Pearl Haupt has very little info. Also once the line goes overseas it is tough so anything you know will be helpful.
