Sharon, I think the forum monster ate my post.
I have the following information:
Johannes "Hans" Schlappach b.1661 Eriz, Thun dist, canton Bern, Switzerland married abt 1692 to Verena Ruchti who was baptized apr 26 1668 in Steffisberg, Switzerland.
their son Johannes Schlabach b. 1694 Eriz, Switzerland, married in 1714 in Holland to Maria Elizabeth ?. died 1751 in Brecnock Twp, Lancaster Co. Pa. emmigrated with his father, wife and children on the "Mary" in 1733 from Rotterdam, Holland to New Jersey, and from there to Lancaster Co. Pa.
Johannes Heinrich b. 1715
Heinrich b. 1717
Tewalt b. 1720
Dorothea b. 1728
Now, Which Heinrich was Phillip's father? Johannes Heinrich or Heinrich?
I have a reference to a will of Heinrich who died in 1793 in Brecnock Twp, wife Elizabeth, children:
Catherine married to Henry Weith
Catherine married to Peter Blaser
Dorothea married to Jacob Zeller
(posted by Donna Ristenbatt on the Schlappach forum)
a conflicting post by Scottie Slayback on the Schlappach forum lists Heinrich married to Sabina Catherina Muhl. She died in York Co. Pa in 1796. Their children:
Catherine married Peter Ulrich
there is also a post by Dawnine Clews on the Schlabig (Schlappich) forum that lists a Johan Heinrich Schlappich form 1652 in Berks Co. Pa, and a Philip Schlappig (Schlappich) born in 1793 married to a Susanna.
In my own records I have a Philip Slabagh listed in the 1790 Robeson Dist. Berks Co. Pa census as head of household. (obviously not the same Philip as the one born in 1793)
He appears again in the 1800 census for Berks Co.
I have another Philip Slebach listed in the Lancaster Co. Pa census in 1800, along with Stophel (Christoper) and George.
(the sons of Heinrich listed in the will)
Which of these two Philips is the father of Jacob, husband of Gertrude Tunnison?
