I am trying to connect my Lefever with the "Uncle Major Baltzell who raised Jacob Lefever (born 1785 in MD) untill his marriage (in 1806 to Mary Pope Jackson, a neighbor of Charles Baltzell Jr, & Sr. & Fultons & Waters.
Nearby was the Graceham Moravian church. Member John Daniel Wotring (Woodring in genforum Forums) had daughter Jullianna b 1746 who married Peter Weller and 2nd Henry Pietzel/Pietsel/Peitsel/Pretsell, etc. Her sister Mary Salome b 1728 may be the wife of Elias Lefever who died March 1797 at age 49.
