Description

Some of the First Settlers of The Forks of the Delaware and Their Descendants, 1760-1852 by Rev. Henry Martyn Kieffer, D.D. (1973). This book was initially published as a translation from German of the record books of The First Reformed Church of Easton, Penna, from 1760 to 1852. Its record books, which possess the rare distinction of being continuous and unbroken for nearly a century and a half, are contemporaneous in their origin with the early beginnings of the settlement, and contain information of greatest value to the many thousands of the descendants of “The First Settlers of the Forks of the Delaware”; for the settlement having from the first been prevailingly German, nearly every family in the community, at some time or other in its history, left some trace of itself in the records of this old German Reformed Church. For genealogical purposes it is believed that this publication will prove of great value to many people. On a moderate estimate there are nearly, or quite, 20,000 names recorded in this book. 8.5″ X 11 X 0.35″, softbound, 404 pages. Library copy with library ID; never circulated.
