Re: Boyer family of Bedford County, PA
Which way are you looking for?Back to the old country or forward to present time?
I am researching the Burket (t) line in Bedford County for my brother-in-law.His Shaffer line married into a Burkett back in the mid 1800s.
Samuel is a family name; and one in particular, Jacob was often listed by his middle name Samuel. A.L Burkett's (my interest) father was that Jacob Samuel.Jacob Samuel's father was John George Burkett and Mary Barbara Fox.Johan Jacob Burket (circa 1712) was John G's father and was married to Sabina Dorthea Nagel of Reading Pa.Johan Jacob was the son of Andreas (Latin form of Andrew) Burkhart, supposed from Switzerland.I don't have the documentation on that yet; I have just received this information from the Bedford county part of PA-Roots website.
This is what I have with me at lunch...I will post more later.
