Ken, As I said before, I didn't know which Samuel you were talking about in the Ginger forum. I was unsure about the place of birth of Samuel b. 1800.I read back through your queries and see that you are probably a descendant of David and Sarah Johnson Ginger through Nimrod Porter Ginger. Is that correct? I've been trying for some years to find the father of this whole group with no success. This man ,the Ginger immigrant , was from Germany no doubt . Henry said in his Revolutionary War application that he came to this country at age seven , and the presumed brother Ludowick would be about age ten. I believe Henry's application said they came firstly to Philadelphia. If my records are not too confused a Ludowick Ginger was listed in Middleton township in 1762. There is also a Ginger listing in a Cumberland county history. If a Ludowick was listed in a presumed tax list in 1762,then Henry's brother would have been only seven,since it is believed he was born in 1755 and there is another Ludowick in the picture,maybe the father. Of course this line of thought makes Henry's testimony about arriving at age seven and therefore in 1765 somewhat off.Facts still need corroboration before any assumptions can be made. This is something I have " thrown out " here for investigation.Cumberland County records and histories bear investigation. Carmelita Kammann
