Geist-Koch Lookup--"The Geist Relation: 200 Years in America"

I am hopefully that someone on the list that has a copy of this book will do a lookup for me. My understanding from reading earlier posts is that the author included information on families not known to be descended from Christoph Geist.

My ancestor is John Geist(?-16 Jan 1813) who m. Elizabeth Koch c. 1787, Berks Co., PA. They had 9 children: Ann, Margaret m Peter Dentler, Jacob, Elizabeth, Catherine m. Wm. Dentler, Daniel, Conrad, Henry, and John. John Geist was a son of Conrad Geist of Reading, Berks, PA who came from Germany about 1760. This information is from Floyd's History of Northumbland Co., PA.

How much additional information does the book contain on this family, if any? Thanks.
