Several of us are descendants of this family, though I don't have a lot of information. Isaac Naff, and Jacob Flora (I think Jacob was Catherine's brother)supposedly went together to Franklin County, VA from PA around the time of the revolution. I was under the impression that Isaac and Catherine were already married when they arrived in Franklin County, though I don't have anything to back that up.

The story about Catherine being born on ship is based on a baptismal certificate, not an actual birth record. But the baptismal certificate presents some problems because Dunkards don't practise infant baptism. I think the baptismal record is (or at one time was)at the Lutherine church in Lancaster County, PA.

Perhaps one of the others here has more information.
