Machamer origins in Dauphin and Berks counties PA
By Gary M March 03, 2008 at 07:09:16
I'm currently looking up family origins and i can only trace it back to Late 1800's in Dauphin county PA and Berks County PA. My great grandfather, James E Machamer, was born there on 20 June 1894 and his parents were William Howard Machamer (2 Oct 1856-28 Oct 1909) and Sidney (Sydney) A. Messner (Dec 1858-?).
I cant find anything before that for the Machamers except that William Howard and Sidney moved there from Berks County PA and that William's parents might be Isreal/Henry Machamer(1832-1868?) and Caroline F Fisher (1834-1907)?
This is all I know, if anyone has any information it would be very helpfull, thanks.
