I'm interested and grateful for all the information that has been posted to this site. So, thanks, to all of you. I've found a contradition in some info I have (mainly from my double cousin, Jim Adkins) and the #54 posting that says that Valentine Ettleman was born in Germany in 1732. Could you please give the source for the information about the German birth and birthdate? And for the information that his wife Elizabeth was born in Switzerland. I am descendant from Valentine and Elizabeth through Jackob Frederick, Jacob,Kathryn (Mason and then Carpenter), Susannah Mason Goodwin, Luanna Goodwin Tudder, and my mother Eva Tudder Hamilton. (Jim Adkins also is descended from the Goodwins and the Tudders.) Thanks, again, for your help.
