Thanks, but I actually had no questions on the Quaker religion or terms....I was just responding to the query of someone else with a simple answer.
All my paternal ancestors were Quakers, beginning with the Newlins who emigrated here with Wm Penn in 1682, and others who arrived early on....the families remained as Quakers in Chester County, Pa, for hundreds of years..our original emigrant was Nicholas, my 8th great grandfather. The term I'm familiar with, from my own Quaker research, is dis, or disowned....several of the meeting records I have even include lists of what were called 'disownments'. I've never seen being 'read out' used in an index or list of Quaker abbreviations, and it doesn't appear in any of my mm records or Hinshaw. .....so, while it may have been used, I think disowned is probably the most commonly used term . But, thanks for your kind offer...it is appreciated.
