I am researching the ancestor's on both my mother's and father's sides of the family. The surnames of my ancestors are listed below with the oldest known ancestor listed in brackets next to the name. So far all of my ancestors appear to have lived in Lehigh, Northampton and Berks counties (PA), some since 1735.
I can trace some of my ancestors back to the time of their arrival in the Port of Philadelphia. These ancestors include Melchoir Danner, Who emigrated from Schaffhaussen, Germany in 1749; Henry Oswald, who arrived on the ship Mercury in 1735, and Johan Peter Lutz who came to America on board the Restauration in 1747.
