Girardin Family Genealogy Forum
We have researched back as far as Jacob Scharadin b.c. 1734/35, whose Father Jacob Girardin are both buried in Bowers Cemetery, Berks Co., PA. It appears that Jacob Girardin b.c. 1700 could be Jacob Scharadin's Father. Our records indicate that both were born in Rauwilen, which we are not sure if it was in Germany or Lorraine France at that time. We do know that many of the Scharadin/Girardin/Sharadin settled in the Berks Co.& in all likelihood, Lehigh Co. areas. (At one time the counties were partially split to form both counties.)
The name Susanna, spelled in various ways, appears throughout many generations.
Any further information on this would be appreciated. In the alternative, we'd be very happy to share what we have.
