Re: Origination Country of Farvers

In Reply to: Re: Origination Country of Farvers by Daniel Farver of 65

Our Farver family (John Konrad Farver, b. 1755 in Heidelberg, Germany)emigrated to Northeastern PA in about 1770's, before the Revolution. His son, George Edel Farver, was born in Columbia County, PA, near Berwick. (Edel being a derivative of "Heidelberger") was my 3rd great-grandfather on my mother's side. I believe that in Germany Farver was spelled with an "umlaut", as: "Faerver" as is shown in the Wurtemberg Listings of Emigrants. I have also heard of Farvers from Denmark, but then, many parts of Germany were back and forth between Denmark & Germany, as Schleswig-Holstein, where my father's father was born. He considered himself Danish, and married a woman from Copenhagen. I have a very extensive GEDCOM file of the Farver family, all descendants of John Konrad Farver; Bonnie Farver of the Columbia County Genealogical & Historical Society in Bloomsburg, PA has many interesting photos and documents available. There is a Farver Family Reunion each July in Berwick, PA, which I attended last summer, meeting cousins from Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and of course, Pennsylvania. Even a few came from California for the Reunion. E-mail me if you wish to share information. RC in NYC on Staten Island, NY
