In Reply to: JURY/JORAY/SHORA CENTRAL PA by Jonathan Wert of 371

I have information that leads me to believe that I am a descendant of Abraham Jury. My grandmother was Alma Hamaker (Married Ludwig Gottleib Herre) d/o Harrison Hamaker and Mary Catherine Rathvon. Mary Catherine Rathvon was the d/o Jacob Rathvon and Mary Magdalene Jury who I have been told was the d/o Abraham Jury. I understand that there is a father and son Abraham -- I do not know which is Mary Magdalene's father. I understand that they are buried in a cemetary in Millersburg. I am interested in verifying this information as well as learning more on this part of my tree.

My grandmother's sister Laura Priscilla Hamaker supposedly belonged to the DAR and it is my understanding that it is possible because Abraham Jury fought in the Revolutionary War -- I am looking for more information on this also.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
