Gorgas/Crawford Faimily History

Here is some information that I just learned from Gorgas relatives in the Netherlands.

Gorgas, Phillipe (Felipe), b. 1661 in Holland, died in 1703 in Germantown, Philadelphia, PA, married Hannah Crawford, in Holland in 1680, same year they migrated to America and settled in Germantown, Philadelphia, PA.

Apparently Phillipe Gorgas was the first settler of the Gorgas family in America, and grand-father of Joseph Gorgas (1770-1841).

Phillipe Gorgas, was the son of Frank (Francisco) Gorgas, Born in Barcelona, Spain in 1639; he died in Holland in 1697, married to Juliane Katrine Andersen (date unknown).

I continue to research the above information for documentation and verification. I'll keep you posted.

Have a great year 2000 and New Millennium!!!
