Schell and Mann Germany to America
Christgen Schell and Bestman Schell in Beilstein, Germany. Several people have posted genealogies or other information about this family. I am especially interested in marriages to the Mann family.
My ancestor, Chr. Mann, was recorded on the ship passenger list ca 1752 as being from Pfuhl, Beilstein along with his family of seven. They apparently were bound for Rupp in Pennsylvanian but the first record that I have for them is in Hampshire County, Virginia soon before they traveled south and settled first in Bracken/Mason County in Kentucky and later across the Ohio River in Adams/Brown County in Ohio.
I would be interested in 'talking' with anyone who can help me with the Germany part of this research - since I have never tried to look for records there.
First, is it possible that the Mann women who married the Schell men were related to my family? Do any Schell researchers know anything more about the Mann families that married into their Schell families?
Any help would be very much appreciated!
