I'm looking to connect to this line, however I am specifically looking to connect my Wilhelms to William Martin Wilhelm because of the fact that he goes to Indiana. Am I right to assume that the counties mentioned in previous postings were from Pennsylvania? Because if that's the case my focus is on Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and the township of DONENGAL.
I have a Johannes (John) Wilhelm married to an Anna RUTT and they had several children but I only have information on one, a David Wilhelm who was born 19 Feb 1800 in Donengal Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and died 8 May 1881 in Peru, Miami County Indiana. A cousin and I are speculating that one of David's siblings, the oldest was named MARTIN and since one of William Martin's sons was named David, along with another that was named John I think those are good clues that William Martin and my David are linked in some way. If anyone has any clues or information please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post here as my cousin and I would like to solve this mystery and perhaps solve one involving my possible link to David through his father Johannes' brother Jacob.
