We "may"be onto something here--The TREON
family in PA was spelled as DRION when they
immigrated from FRANCE. We have an AWOL
ancestor named CHRISTIAN DRION who was
supposedly on the DUKE OF WURRTENBURG? ship
and a son or cousin named MICHAEL who was
on the ship JANE in the early 1750's to PHILA
They were a family of SURGEONS who served in
the FRENCH army. CHRISTIAN DRION is spelled
as DRION in one transcription of the ship's
log and as ADRIAN in another! We also could
not figure out the MARRIAGE in MD of the
PAULUS and TRION/TREON folks early on. Then
thanks to another researcher who answered my
query on some of the PA lists last week,
that person asked if perhaps CHRISTIAN ADRIAN
was not our missing CHRISTIAN DRION. There
is alot of known documentation of CHRISTIAN
in the TREON lines who went west to OHIO
and also have found records in MD archives
for CHRISTIAN ARION! I wonder if this is not
the very same man. CAN anyone tell me if
CHRISTIAN ADRIAN who came to America in the
1750's was indeed a doctor? We may have
2 separate branches of the SAME family with
different spellings. I would have never linked the 2 names together. Then I saw
CO PA. We too, have several FREDERICK TREON'S
who were DRION/TRYON in various records.
Ours went to Northumberland Co PA. And I
noted the REIFSNYDER query--we did have
folks with this name marry into our line in
BERKS CO PA. My email is: Bonnie Treon Would appreciate any and
ALSO some records of a FREDERICK TREIN in
PA too.
