The Gorgas family you speak of, I believe did business in some way with the Keyser family, also of Germantown (and Philadelphia). There was a shipping line that I believe had the Keyser-Gorgas name. Peter A. Keyser was involved with it, and his brother (William Edward Keyser) was a captain on one of the ships of the coastal trade, the brigantine, Independence. Do you have any information about this company at all? I would like to find out more about it, and am willing to exchange materials with you, especially if there are any family links as well
