Manhard Family Genealogy Forum
I too, thought I was alone researching the Manhard family. My husband comes through Peter, the son of David and Elizabeth, who married Jenny Butler. Records keep saying Dorothy Wing; this is incorrect, I have alot of proof it is Jenny Butler. Records I have from Louise Croft say: David was 2 or 3 when he was brought from Germany by his father DAVID. They landed in Philadelphia. David was born in 1754. He married Elizabeth Blass in Germantown, Columbus, New York.
David's parents were David Manhard (Manhardt) and Margaret (Gurtrught) Schill. Her father was Johannes George Schill. Her mother was Anna Marie Bachmann.
I have not worked at proving any of this, and I am waiting for her sources. But I do think that alot of info that has been out there is messed up. Dorothy Wing does not fit where everyone thinks, she goes somewhere else, but I can't remember where right now. I have alot on the Blass family if anyone is interested. I have a pretty good family group sheet for David Manhard and Elizabeth Blass with 10 children on it. Maybe someone could make some corrections.
