I find this totally amazing! The information fits what my father had known about his Lash line! I descend from Peter 1st to Peter the 2nd to Peter the 3rd b. 1838 d. 1917. This was my grandfathers father. My grandfather Albert Lash b. 1867 d.1950 buried in New Washington Ohio. Albert and Malinda Bridgeman had one child, my father Mendel. He was b. 1895 d. 1986 and was a college professor at Kansas State University.

Children of Peter the 1st were William b.1804, d.1881, Peter the 2nd, Jacob, Charity, Anne, Christine, Phoebe, Mary, Elizabeth, Susan. Do you have these people in your lineage?

Have you been to Germany to see the original hometown? Do you know what these ancestors did for a living? Their religion? We will research the change of the location of Ginsheim from Germany to Prussia - I assume Prussia became part of Germany during some war.

Can you contact the Mike Chaffin who gave you this lineage so I can talk to him also?

Thank you for all this information. My husband and I will be following up on more details. Please give me your side of the family also.
