Are the 4 Brubakers heads of household related? Who were their fathers? Who were their children? In 1786, John Brubaker sold Earl Twp Lancaster Co., PA land to Christian Brubaker (see below). Was Christian Brubaker the son of John Brubaker?

The Christian Brubaker and the Andrew Newman families may have been related.
