After years of searching we still cannot fit-in with these FERRINGERS but I am pretty sure somewhere down the line we will.
Do you have a birth date for Mary Agnes?
Do you have any type of church records from Schuylkill County?
In the 1820-30 census Philip Lucas and Peter Lucas are living around Ferringers. Peter married a Mary(Maria) Ferringer.
1827 Deed from Lower Mohantango Twp, Peter is buying land from Joseph Ferringer. When he sells this land in 1835 to move to Clarion Co, Redbank Twp, the deed mentions Peter and wife "Maria". Ferringers are living around them in Clarion on all other census.
Peter Lucas was born 1790 and baptised at HOST Church in Berks. Other than church in Klingerstown I found nothing for Ferringers---not even a tombstone.?
Unless we find a marriage we probably will never know. I made 2 trips to the area in Schuylkill and will probably make a 3rd but sure would like to narrow down the area.
Any progress you might have made since this posting I sure would be interested.
They are buried at Salem Church, Frogtown, PA
