Note about 2 Ulrich Steffys

Please note that there were two Ulrich Steffys, one who was born at Steinsfurt in Germany (not far from Heidelberg) who settled at Skippack in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. He emigrated with Rev. George Michael Weiss, a Reformed minister, in 1727 to Philadelphia, Pennsyl-vania. My ancestor, Ulrich Steffy, emigrated most likely between 1741-1743 from Hoffen, Alsace, and previously Affoltern, Switzerland. There are no ship records that have been found of this family’s emigration. They settled near the Hebron Moravian Church where he is buried.

Some of the later Ulrich later moved to Wythe County, Virginia. Then some others moved to Indiana and across to Illinois.
