In case you do not already have this information, there is a Historic marker near Sugar Grove, West Virginia, where he gave land for the Propst Lutheran Church in 1769. I have the picture in my book. He was married by Rev. Stover of Tulpehocken, Berks, Co. PA to Catherin 25 Dec. 1733. His home at the time was in Cocalico, south of Stouchsburg and Womelsdorf. He migrated to Upper Tract in what was then Augusta Co., VA, along with a group of others including George Pfaffenberger befoe the French and Indian War. Many were killed by Indian raids in 1758. For a history of this group, including the early Propst family in Pennsylvina, you may find the book helpful. See: Thomas Poffenberger, "From Germany to Antietam, The early history of the Pfaffenberger family, Second Edition, Xlibris, 2003. Best source is 888-795-4274 or
