Leonhard Furrer Ancestors and Descendant
Posted by: Bill Furr Date: October 08, 1998 at 08:11:17
  of 82

Looking for the descendants and ancestors of the following Furrer family:

"From the Parish Zell, against all warnings and admonitions, there left for the purpose of going to Pennsylvania, Carolina, etc., the following persons:

August 29, 1734

Bernhardt Furer, September 19, 1697
Babelj Zuppinger, August 8, 1967
Heinrich, July 6, 1631 (sic)
Hans Rudolff, January 27, 1737"

However, a letter from the Swiss Record Office of the County of Zurich dated December 23, 1987 to Mary Ann Plumeri of Las Vegas, Nevada, states this information is incorrect. Instead, Heinrich Furrer emigrated in 1738 with his parents and siblings to America. He was actually born on July 6, 1727. His father's name was Leonhard, not Bernhard. He arrived on the ship Jamaica Gallery in Philadelphia and sworn in on February 7, 1739.
