In Reply to: Mary Jane Unger 1819-1857 by Glenn Wilson of 852

Mary Jane Unger b. 30 Dec 1819, was the second child of George Unger ( b, 18 Feb. 1796)and Elizabeth Bailey. George Unger was the son of Johannes Nicholas Unger b. 29 August 1759 in Lancaster Co PA and Catherine Hollinger b. 7 August 1760 in Lancaster Co PA. My line descends from their son John W. Unger but I do have some information on the children of George Unger and Elizabeth Bailey. This comes from an old book on the Unger family from the late 1890's. I cannot vouch for its accuracy but there are many Unger researchers out there who descend from your line. The Unger and Hollingers moved from Lancaster Co PA to Berkeley Co VA (now Morgan County WV) in the 1790's.
