Looking for information on Martin Kreis who left three boys and perhaps went off to the Rev. War. He lived 13 miles east of Philadelphia. His son Philip Krise/Kreis (born 1771) married Anna Catherine Bruch (born 14 May 1778) of Lebanon Co., PA, in 1798 at Faulkner Swamp, Montgomery County. Philip had brothers Joseph Kreis, who went to Maryland, and Peter Kreis, who went to York, PA. Philip and Anna moved from Lebanon County to Centre County, PA. I am descended from Philip through his son Samuel Krise, son William Andrews Krise, son Warren Samuel Paget Krise, and daughter Elizabeth Krise Hott (my mother). Martin Kreis is not the one of the Catholic faith listed near Philadelphia; at least I cannot make a connection. Any information would be appreciated.
