The Martin Waybright you are speaking of is not the same Martin Weybrecht I am talking about. The Martin I am talking about is your Martin Waybright's grandfather.

Your Martin (your Great X 4 grandfather) is my Great X 5 grandfather. Your Martin's father was Johann Michael Waybright. He was born in 1728 in Schonbrunn Brandenberg, Onalzbach. He was 3 or 4 when his father Martin Weybrecht came to this country in 1732. Michael and his wife Anna are buried now in Evergreen Cemetery in Gettysburg PA (I have pictures I took a couple of weeks ago of their graves). They were moved to his location in 1894 from Tom's Creek MD by A. Waybright.

Michael's father was Martin Weybrecht. He was born also in Brandenberg. He is buried somewhere on the old family farm in Lancaster PA. He built a log cabin on this land in 1732 and a stone home in 1741. I have pictures of the stone home I took a couple of weeks ago. It is now owned by the Calvary Church in Lancaster PA and sits on 1099 Landis Valley Road.

Martin Weybrecht donated a pewter Flagon in 1733 and a pewter baptismal bowl and chalice/cup in 1734 to the Trinity Lutheran Church that now sits at 31 S. Duke Street in Lancaster PA. These are the gifts I was saying I took pictures of.

I will send copies of these pictures to you via E-Mail. Let me know if you get them. THANKS.
