My Wollett family came from Germany and Switzerland before that. They settled in York Co., PA. Quick outline of info:

Stephan Woleth cal 1699 Bolligen, Bern, Switzerland md. Maria Barbara Muehlecher 20 Jun 1724 in Gemmingen, Hedelberg, Baden, Germany. He died 1771. Maria died 1782 - both in Germany. They had:

Hans Georg Wollet bn 1732 died 1777. Md Anna Dorothea Riedinger in 1753.
Albertina Charlotte Wollet bn 1725
Wilhelm Reinhard Wollet bn 1727 died 1764
Christina Wollet bn est 1734 md Georg Riedinger 1766.

Hans Georg Wollet and Anna Riedinger had the following children all born in Baden, Germany:

Friederich Wollet bn 1770 md 1794 in Germany to Elisabeth Kolb. He died 28 Apr 1842 in Spring Garden, York, PA.
Georg Jacob Wollet bn 1754 md Catharina Hacker 1784 died 1821.
Charlotta Loysa Wollet bn 1756 md Christian Euemele 1775 died 1790
Johann Melchior Wollet bn 1759 died 1759
Michael Wollet bn 1760
Johannes Wollet bn 1763
Loysa Wollet bn 1765 died 1769
Carl Wollet bn 1768 died 1771
Dorothea Wollet bn 1772 died 1776

Friederich Wollet and Elisabeth Kolb had the following children all born in Germany:

Margaretha Frederika Wollet bn 29 Feb 1812 md 1828 to Christian Schaeffer died 1852 in Spring Garden, York, PA.
Friederich Wollet bn 1796 died 1817
Johann Philipp Wollet bn 1798
Georg Wilhelm Wollet bn 1800 died 1803
Charlotta Christina Wollet bn 1802 died 1803
Johann Georg Wollet bn 1804
Christina Elisabetha Wollet bn 1806 died 1807
Johann Wilhelm Wollet bn 1809 died 1810
Wilhelm Wollet bn 1815 died 1817

I descend from Lydia Schaeffer who married John Lehr in York, PA. Lydia is the daughter of Christian Schaeffer and Margaretha Frederika Wollet.

I also have an aunt Catherine Adams who married a Daniel Wollet in the York area in the mid 1800's (don't have the date off the top of my head). She was the daughter of Oliver Adams and Anna Maria Bentz. I do not have the information where Daniel fits in to the Wollet family though.

Would love to connect with relatives.
