Howdie,
My grandmother was a Blough. She was descended from Jacob Blough and Magdalena Gnaegi. I do have a lot of information on many of the other families you mention, as well as most of the other Amish and Mennonite settlers who emigrated to PA in the 18th century and early 19th century. Most of the information is found in "Amish and Amish Mennonite Genealogies" by Gingerich and Kreider. This book is probably still available, and I might be able to find a address for you. The book was about $60, and worth every cent. It deals with the Settlers and their descendants that are known down to about the 1860's. I have a copy of "The Daniel Bender Family History", ed. by Lucy Beachy. I picked this up in a bookstore. It does not directly pertain to my family. If you are intersted in either of these books, just email me. I'll try to get you the info on the first one, and am willing to pass on the other for what I have in it + S+H.
David
