Jost Reidel, Schaefferstown, PA
Jost Reidel/Reitle/Ridle was in Schaefferstown, PA, church records as late as 1794. A Jost Reidel was listed in the 1767 tax records for Tulpehoccon Twp, Berks Co, and Jost Reitle was in the 1771 Cocalico Twp, Lancaster Co, tax records.From church sponsorship records his wife appears to be Magdalena.In Penn. German Pioneers: Johann Conrath Reidel and Johan Jost Reidel were listed together.
Trying to piece together the family of Jost Reidel and (probably) Magdalena, this is what I get: Catherine - who married John Jacob Gehret/Gehrhart, Barbara - who married Henry Iba/Ipa/Epa, Johann Peter - who may have married Barbara Koehler/Keoler, John - who married Christian/e, Julianna b. 1759 - who married Peter Fuhrmann, and Elizabeth/Lise bap. 1762 - who may have married Peter Wolf. All of this comes from various church records - Berks Co Church records, Schaefferstown Church records, Cocalico Church records.
Is this family correct? Are Jost and Conrath brothers? When and where was Jost Reidel born, married, died? Thanks for any help.
