I am searching for any information I can get on the following famililes...I will start with the one closest to me and go back with what I know....I have based my information on a family bible that was owned by my great great grandfather.

Isaac "Mahlon" Dungan Irwin b: May 25, 1849 in Montgomery county Pensylvania. Son of Isaac Benjamin Irwin and Cathrine ? I have found a family tree on ancestry that tells some about this family but I would love to find more...

Mahlon married Henrietta Clarissa Lerch in 1869 in Reading, she was born July 7, 1849 She was the daughter of ? Lerch and Rebecca Ahrens Lerch Wummer? I know this by a picture that is in the family bible of Rebecca that states on the back that she was Henrietta's mother and that she married Mr. Lerch first wich was Henreitta's father then George Wummer...(not sure if this is the correct spelling as the writing on the picture is hard to read). Also on Henrietta's obituary it states that she is survived by her step-brother Jacob Wummer.

I found a census in 1850 with a Rebecca Ahrens in the home with Jacob Ahrens, she is listed with the last name Ahrens but at the bottom of the household is a 1 year old infant Margarett Lerch.....(very confusing)

I am more that willing to share any info I have on Mahlon and Henrietta's family and would love to talk with anyone who can help me find anyting on thier ancestor.....

Thanks you,
