I have recently been given permission by The Pennsylvania German Society of Kutztown, PA to digitize and publish material from the 1934 limited printing of Strassburger's Pennsylvania German Pioneers. I've attached a jpeg which includes the "mark" of Henry Stein (aka Henrich Stein) who accompanied Sebastian Stein on the Edinburgh in 1748 and the signature of Johann Henrich Stein who arrived on the Edinburgh in 1751. The latter compares favorably with the signature of Henry Stone who was active on the South Branch in several probates (see the attachment in an earlier post this thread). As previously explained, the "mark" of the immigrant on the 1748 voyage eliminates him as the man in Augusta Co. records.

These and other selected signatures from the oaths' lists in the 1934 limited printing of Pennsylvania German Pioneers, Vol. II, will be digitized for comparison to signatures from various probate and other court documents of the South Branch pioneers in an as yet untitled collection of signatures which will eventually be available in the form of a limited printing book, CD, or possibly both.
