I am descended from David Eveland (Johann David Eveland) who arrived in America at New Yaork Harbor in 1710 from Germany, and from his son, Frederick Eveland (b. 1720). Both lived most of their lives in Hunterdon County, N.J.. Two of Frederick's children (Daniel b. 1759 and Peter b. 1760) fought in the Rev. War as teenagers and later moved to the Northumberland Territory in central Pennsylvania with their families in 1788-89. Both Daniel and Peter lived there until their deaths in the mid 1830's when they were in their mid 70's -- Daniel living in Northumberland County near Milton Pa, and Peter in the Fishing Creek area of Columbia County, PA. I am descended from one of them: my lineage can be traced backward in the Catawissa area of Columbia County to John b. 1834. I am specifically seeking information on:
1. Both Daniel and Peter - their children and grandchildren.
2. David Eveland - who was identified in the 1830 census in Catawissa at the age of 19, married, and with one child at that time.
3. Any information that could connect either Daniel or Peter with my known ancestor John (b. 1834) near Catawissa in Columbia County.
4. Johann David Iffland's German heritage.
