Ms. Morris continues, "We do not know when Daniel Renoll came to the Colony of Pennsylvania although Ammon Staapelton in his book "A memorial to the Huguenots" p. 155 places him in York, Pennsylvania in 1749. His daughter, Maria Elizabeth, was baptized by Jacob Lischy on May 19, 1752 at St. Peter's Lutheran and Reformed Church in Codorus Township, York County, PA. (Jacob Lischy's Journal, 1743-1769, York County Historical Library).

He adds that Daniel Renolle does not appear on the lists as a foreign immigrant and that it is a fair assumption to conclude that he came hither from an older colony..

The earliest land record we have to date of Daniel Renoll's ownership of land in Codorus · Township is the following document dated October 16, 1751'

From Ms Morris work: The Reverend Jacob Lischy, who was the pastor of the church, kept a private Journal of baptisms and marriages during his pastorate there (1743-1769). I have visited the site of this colonial Reformed Church and there is now a small colonial type church that was built at a later date. It is called Lischy's Reformed Church or St. Peter's Lutheran and Reformed Church and is in North Codorus Township with many graves of old settlers in the graveyard beside the church. Jacob Lischy's Private Journal is now in the Reformed Church Library of Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Jacob Lischy wrote all German names in German script, but others in Roman script; all the Renoll records are in Roman script. The two syllable pronunciation indicated by Lischy also points to a French origin. The following are the recorded baptisms of the children of Daniel Renolly and his wife Maria Elisabeth:
Maria Elisabeth May 19, 1752 Sponsors: Johannes Reber and Maria Magdalena
Johann Daniel March 25, 1753 Sponsors: Joh Wentil Fissel and Anna Margreth
Johannes July 7, 1754 Sponsors: Jean Degrauche and Maria Elisabeth
Johannes October 5, 1755 Sponsors: Johannes Ott and Anna Elisabeth
Joh Peter September 27, 1757 Sponsor: Johannes Reber
Christian May 17, 1759 Sponsors: Christoff Roth Ermel and Julianna
Joh Jacob May 11, 1761 Sponsors: Jacob Haffner and Elisabeth
Barbara November 12, 1764 Sponsors: Andress Miller and Barbara
Heinrich April 3, 1767 Sponsors: Heinrich Scoil and Catharine
Anna Elisabeth May 2, 1769 Sponsors: Jacob Kranos and Anna
The year 1769 ends Lischy's journal but Daniel Renoll's will also lists two daughters who were born later: Susanna and Magdalen.

SOME EARLY RENOLL FAMILY GRAVE LOCATIONS Katherine E. Schroder Morris, while collecting information and data for her book, Daniel Renoll Huguenot, spent considerable time and effort in Codorus Township, York County, PA, trying to locate the final resting places of some of the early Renoll family members.
In the mid-1960s she and her husband, with help from the York County Historical Society and local citizens, located the graves of some of these early family members. The following is quoted from her book:
Several summers ago my husband and I visited York County and searched for the private graveyard of Daniel Renoll. We drove through a cornfield and found a graveyard with a handsome stone marker with the history of another family of early settlers, the Hamme's. We kept stopping along the county roads asking for information and at one old farmhouse we talked with a genial older man named Daniel RenoIl. He was not aware that the first settler of that name was a Huguenot and he did not know where the private burying ground was. He directed us to Lischy's Church, just down the road and there we saw many graves of later Renoll's. We did find the private graveyard with the help of two young boys and I hope that someday it will have a marker and be fenced in. It is well cared for now but the stones are becoming almost illegible. It is on the Spring Grove-Jefferson Road, situated on the left in a field just before a big red barn at Pine Tree Farm; next sign Beefeater Farm on Route #516 where it branches off from #116 about one-half mile.
Fourteen slabs are standing but only five are legible Stones:
