John Anthony Knisley and Elizabeth Pipher
I am searching for Pennsylvania connections for John Anthony Knisley and his wife, Elizabeth Pipher, Mennonites, of York Co., Ontario, Canada.John was born in 1795 in PA, married Elizabeth circa 1821 in PA, and died at Whitechapel Twp., York Co., Ontario on 10 June, 1860. He lies buried in Wideman Mennonite Cemetery, Markham Twp., York Co., Ontario.Elizabeth Pipher was born 21 May, 1804 in Pennsylvania, the daughter of Samuel Pipher and Barbara LABAR. Elizabeth died 7 March, 1869 at Markham Twp., York Co., Ontario and lies buried in Wideman Mennonite Cemetery. John Anthony and Elizabeth had twelve children born between 1822 and 1847. The first two were born in PA and the rest were born in York Co., Ontario. They were: Mary Sarah (married Jonas MILLER), Abraham (married Rachel SMITH), Christian (aka Christol or Christle, married Mary Ann CHAPMAN), Samuel (married Ann GRIMES), John A. (married Esther TROUP), George (married Christina SITTER), Joseph (dy), Daniel (appears to have never married), Peter (married 1. Barbara Sitter, 2. Magdalena YAKE), David (married Rebecca WILLSON), Anthony (married Elizabeth GOULD) and Barbara (married Richard WILSMITH). Of these children, we know that Christian, Samuel, John A. and George emigrated to the United States. At this point, I really need to connect John Anthony Knisley (1795-1860) back to his Pennsylvania roots. Unfortunately, I have no clue as to exactly where in PA we should be looking, so any assistance in establishing PA connections would be greatly appreciated. I would also enjoy exchanging information with any descendants of Mary S. Knisley Miller, Abraham Knisley, Samuel Knisley, John A. Knisley, Peter Knisley, David Knisley, Anthony Knisley and Barbara Knisley Wilsmith.
