Shana,

>His great grandfathers name was Bradly >Learn and his grandfathers name was Howard >Learn, his father was also named Howard.

According to the info I have....

Bradley was married to Elizabeth Hansell...
His parents were Morris Learn and Elizabeth Bowman...
Morris' parents were Peter Learn and Anna Margaret Starner...
Peter's were Jacob Learn and Elizabeth Romig
and Peter was the 5th son of John and Caderina Learn

The most accepted theory is that John emmigrated from Prussia in the 1700s (prior to 1750) to the US, and eventually settled near the Pokonos in PA (where Tannersville is currently located). There are some interesting stories associated with the Learn family.

Good Luck
Ross Learn
