John Detwiler, Switz to Fairfield Co.,Ohio ???????
Posted by: Lisa Evans (ID *****7713) Date: July 19, 2002 at 19:23:26
  of 569

Looking for ANY information on any of the following individuals. Found lots of info about Detwilers from PA, but nothing else on those from Ohio. Did my line NOT actually come directly from Switzerland to Ohio.......Did they instead, start in PA?
Another issue; Living in same Township to one of my Johns, is another family of Detwilers, John & Ann, with daughters, Jane & Clementine. John, being born in PA (from census). Considering how close they were living, how do these two Detwiler families connect. Is it a PA connection????? Could it be the uncles family that my John supposedly emigrated with?
HELP HELP HELP!!!
The Fairfield Co.,Gen site has absolutly nothing!

Thanks in advance!
