My original source listed David E. Kershner's son Jacob as being born Oct. 18, 1781 however in records of baptisms by ministers in Washington Co., Md. I find Jacob Kershner b. Oct. 18, 1781 listed as the son of Martin and Elizabeth Kershner. I find two other Jacobs one born Dec. 12, 1779 and the other born Nov. 03, 1781 and neither of them is listed as the son of David Kershner. The first is listed as the son of Johannes and Anna Maria and the second as the illegitimate son of Jacob Kershner and Margaretha Angener. Also I find no mention of Jacob (b. 1777) the supposed son of John Kershner. Anyone out there who knows the straight on this or can shed any light on this. I find these Washington Co. Kershners very confusing especially since several descendants of the Pennsylvania Kershners also show up there. Or do they? Any Ideas?
