I am researching families who lived in South Philadelphia, PA during the 1700's & 1800's. This area was referred to as the "neck" and a lot of the residents were farmers and market gardeners. The earliest ancestors I have found on these lines are:
Michael Getz(1730-1812) and Barbara Metzger(1733-1820)
Francis Read(1755-1848) and Martha Mirely(1757-1840)
Philip Mink(1754-1837) and Anna Maria Metzger(1758-1844)
John Simon(???? - 1798) and Catherine ?? (1741-1829)
Michael Metzger(1712-1784)and Catherine Ulmer(????-1778)

John Simon and Michael Getz both fought in the Revolutionary War and are on the DAR's Patriot List. I have collected a lot of information on their descendants, but have many gaps. I'm willing to share information on any of these lines.
