I have a book called "EGLY Family Record, A Chronology of the Descendents of Henry Egly, 1824-1958" Compiled and published by Albert and Anna Egly in 1957. I am looking for others who may have copies also, so we can share new entries.
The book is a listing of about 300 individuals who are related to Bishop Henry Egly, b.4-5-1824, d. 6-23-1890. He was the son of Abraham Egly and Magdalena Reber. He was married to Cathryn (Katherine) Goldsmith in 1849 and had 8 children. His son Jacob Egly (b.9-21-1849) was married to Lydia Moser. Jacob and Lydia were my great great grand parents. Any info to share would be appreciated. Rose

Thanks for replying. The book in reference was published by Albert and Anna S. Egly, Fort Wayne , Indiana in either 1957 or 1958. It was done by the family. I do not know how many are in existence as the copies were not numbered. They are soft cover books and are bound by plasctic rings. It was for the descendents of Bishop Henry Egly born 4-5-1824 in Grosherzogthum, Baden, Germany, and his wife Cathryn (Katherine) Goldsmith born 6-15-1827. Henry was the son of Abraham and Magdalena (Reber) Egly. Abraham is the son of Jakob And Magdalena (Frei) Egle. Do you have any connections to this Egly? Do you have any names and dates in the late 1700 and the early 1800 for me to check? Abraham had many brothers and many came here as Amish Mennonites. Most settled in the Indiana and Illinois area.Rose Oyer Gauthier

Thank you for responding. If I belong to this family, I haven't found the link yet. Do you have any idea where to get this book to which you refer? Helen Beaugh

Hi Helen, I do not know of any one else who has this book. I do know they were privately done for the family. I think there are many more out there, but not in any libraries or for purchase. I have put the information in my family tree maker with many updates. We could probably email back and forth some info. I will get back to you. Rose

Hi Helen , I also forgot to add that some of the information is in the Family Tree Maker CDs. These are available at many Libraries. I have not found information on these CDs about Bishop Henry Egly, but there was info about his parents and a few more generations going back. If you give me the oldest ancestors you have I will check to see if I already have them in my file. I also have run across a few good web sites that I can forward to you at a later date. Rose

I am in search of family history of the Egley
family. I know that there is an extra "e" but,
The original spelling was Egly. That is the last
name on my Great-Great Grandfather's grave marker.
His name was William and was married to a Maggie McClure.
They lived in Valley Twp. near Kittanning Pennsylvania.
Their one son, Ralph Sylvester (married Harriet Marie Rimel) was my Great Grandfather.
Any information would be greatly welcomed! Thank - you!
