Family~~ I have recently come across a hither-unknown translation ofa German Church books which lists specific dates for Le Fevres, Ferrees and related families.And unlike other questionable proof which has been offered in this forum, I believe this to be an invaluable source of our earliest family history.(One bill of sale to an ancestor only shows goods were sold, a hundred reasons could be postulated as to why the goods were actually sold and is not proof of permanent residency ...it might be....but it is very weak evidence).The book from a local German historian ( deceased) and working together we might actually solve some of our oldest family puzzles.
I have also foundreferences to places mentioned in the Le Fevre book and have confirmed that some of the more famous Le Fevresones did exist.Whether or not we're related is open for debate.I have one reference to a name listed, from a digitized record from original Huguenot records associated with Chateau Chinon Rouenlisting Andras Le Fevre's wedding date. (1604?)These digitized records just came line this year.Is he related?I don't know.
Also, Wlliam Penn spent a year at that Samuur (sp?) Academy in France which was the center of French Protestant Learning. Just within the last year a square and statue were dedicated to Penn. So is it plausible he met Maria Ferree?Gives a little more credence to the story.Also, I have read, given his dire financial circumstances he received prospective land owners at his home office.......
As to the Chief Tanawa story, well That will keep for another time .
