Jonathan Ginter (b. ca. 1813) is the son of Jacob (1772-bef. 1825) who immigrated to Berks Co., PA in 1791 with his parents, Daniel and Margaretha "Guntar," and six siblings: Catharine, Daniel, William, Peter, Caroline, and Conrad. Around 1803 they all moved to Huntingdon Co., PA. In 1825, Daniel, the father, wrote his will, available in the Huntingdon Co. courthouse, in which he names his seven children (or grandchildren in the case of the death of Catharine, Jacob, and Caroline). To confuse matters, Daniel's daughter Catharine was married to a Jacob Guinther/Ginter (from an earlier immigrant family to Berks Co.) and his son Jacob was married to a Catharine.
