SNYDER Ludwick SNYDER was born in about 1770. His parents were born in Germany, as likely was he. They settled in Lancaster, Co., PA, where Ludwick was orphaned at some rather young age. His father may have been named Jacob, but that is conjecture. According to one source, Ludwick was related to a Jacob SNYDER who served in the Revolutionary War. Any info on parents, siblings, etc., or any relevant SNYDER info is welcome. Thank you. Lorin Snyder

I hope someone can help me with my elusive Levi MARSHALL. What I know is Levi was Married to Rebecca GARMAN. They had at least 2 daughters. Daughter (1) was Sophia Elizabeth MARSHALL b 1860 and she married Frank FLICKINGER and she died in 1936 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Daughter (2) was Lydia Ann MARSHALL b 1863 and she was married to Wm FLICKINGER and she died in 1936 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I have both daughters death certificates and the informant was Lydia Ann (MARSHALL) FLICKINGER for her sister Sophia Elizabeth. Therefore I am quite certain the parents are correct. However I am unable to find either Levi MARSHALL or Rebecca GARMAN. The death certificates list the place of birth as Pennsylvania and both girls married boys from Lancaster Co Pa. Has anyone out there seen my MARSHALL's?

LAUGHLIN I recently discovered that my Henry Laughlin may have lived in Lancaster Co in the late 1700's. Henry was born before 1765 and was married to Margaret (?). Their children were: 1. Henry md Sarah COCHRAN, d. in Jackson Co IL before 1814 2. Charles 3. John md. Rebecca WALKUP in Mercer Co KY in 1813 4. Isabelle md. William DOUGLASS in Madison Co KY in 1799 5. Sarah (b. abt 1786) md. John HENDERSON in Madison Co KY in 1809, d. in Boone Co MO, 1871. 6. Polly (Mary) md. Robert WALKUP in Madison Co KY in 1814, d. in Boone Co MO before 1833 7. maybe William In 1777, a Henry LAUGHLIN took the Oath of Allegiance and I presume he was in Lancaster Co PA at that time. Henry was in Madison Co KY by 1791 and died about 1812. Does anyone recognize this family? I'm trying to find Henry's parents, his wife's last name, or anything else that I can learn about Henry LAUGHLIN. I would greatly appreciate any tidbit. Thanks Jean Danielson
