There is one more George Purtlebaugh before that born in 1752.We have most of that family and can follow the ones that used Purtlebaugh and the ones that used Bartlebaugh.George James was the preacher they name a church and town after and we have that research. Also have photos of this family of George and his sister Harriet plus George Allen.
But there was a George Bartlebaugh that also used Puterbaugh.He paid taxes in 1786 (info already on this site) so was born at least 20 years before and we think earlier.They settled in Bedford Co in the area of Chambersburgh and Martinsburg and Hopewell townhip.John and Philip were found here in 1808 but this John was born in Virginia.Most of the others in Pa.
We still you like to see what you have as you may have some info we don't have.If you want to write me at my own e-mail, that is ok.
I am in touch we a very good research of Purtlebaugh by the name of Ruth.Her grandmother was Harriet Bartlebaugh sister of George James.,
