i grew up in rowan co, nc and am a descendant of jacob oberkirsh-my g'mother and g'father were both descendants-g g fathers were bros-so i have a lot of
overcash ancestry that descends from jacob. he couldn't have stayed in lancaster co very long. the earliest info i have is passenger lists and charter membership at organ lutheran church in rowan co as well as a land grant for supplying food to the rev army-this was gathered by my father's cousin for DAR membership over 40-50 yrs ago-would like to find info showing specific village family came from in germany so i could visit there someday or continue research there-i'd like to share/compare info-thanks!

Do you know where i can get a copy of the book? My latest discovery indicates that Francis was not a son of Jacob but also a german immigrant.

Mr. Overcash:

I am trying to make the Overcash, Overcast connection. I am decendent of George Overcash (or Overcast as it was , his son William Smith Overcast is the line I trickle out of.

Can you provide me with information on Jacob Oberkirsh (his descedents) so that I can compare and see if I should be searching this line as a possible connection?

Any information you may have is welcome.

Thank you.

HI,

Did you ever get information on the Overcash book from Eric? I just happened to see this message. Eric is my cousin and it is my mother who has put the book information together.
