Re: ORPHAN EASTERDAY

Too weird! Me too! That's the same story that's been passed down my branch. An orphan was left on the church doorstep on Easter morning so they called him Christian Easterday. I always assumed it was my ancestor Christian Easterday (b. 1720 in Sachsen, Prussia, Germany, d. Nov. 15, 1805 in Frederick Co., MD and buried on the family farm in Frederick Co., MD). Christian married Juliana Johanna Francisca Speiss (b. June 17, 1732 in Bad Homburg, Von Der Hoehe, Germany, d. Sept. 4, 1804 in Jefferson, Frederick Co., MD and buried on the family farm also.) I don't know the parents of Christian Easterday, but Juliana Spiess' parents were Conrad Speiss and Johanna Susanna Barbara Huess. I have additional information on them and a few of their ancestor's if you're interested.

I'm descended from Christian and Juliana Easterday's child Julia or Juliana Easterday (b. May 30, 1765, d. Sept. 4, 1824).

It would be great to hear from you and see if you're related! :)
