I am attempting to find the town my family originated from. T have been able to trace my Scranton PA roots from my grandmother Ida J. Neher Murphy (born 11/1892, Scranton). Her parents were Peter Neher (born 12/1870, Scranton) and Annie McDonnell (born 1872? Ireland) and married May 1890. Peter's parents were George Neher (born 12/1838, Germany) and Caroline or Carrie Hoffman (born 1839, Germany). George had a younger brother Charles (1842) who resided with him and apparently never married. Their parents were Jakob? Neher (born 1800, Germany) and Catherine Neher (born 1804?, Germany) I think that George Charels came to Scranton some time between 1850 1855 with their parents who were in their 50's at the time. Family stories state we are Bayerisch (Bavarian). Does this information sound familiar to anyone?
