On 26 Jan 1752, David Sherk was appointed guardian over the children of Jacob Sherk, deceased. This suggests George David and Jacob were brothers.

David's family record was recorded in the Cocalico Reformed Church records.

Scherck, George David (I40357)
 
208 A George Schenck and wife Margaretha had children baptised at Lancaster Moravian, but this wife supposedly died in 1762. Need to double check. This man could possibly be Margaretha Fried's first husband.

215 A Jerick Backastos was on the St. Andrew in 1743. On the clerk list his name was listed as Ulrich. Since he could not sign his name, a second clerk named him as Jerick. Since his age was only 16, this man could possibly be the Jacob of Lancaster Borough.
 
Bachenstoss, Jacob (I37327)
 
216 A John Cross married an Eleanor in 1768 at St. James. Cross, John (I37446)
 
217 A Jurig Thomas Hoyle and Jurig Thomas Hoyle, Jr. (age 35) emigrated on the same ship with Henrich. This family is identified in Annette Burgert's Emigrants from the Northern Kraichgau. They were originally from Rohrbach. Perhaps Henrich is a son of Joh. Thomas Hoyle.

See Brickerville Cemetery burial records. There is record of a Henrick Heyl from Zu Ror-Ch bey Sinsheim who was married to Anna Maria Shoemaker. They were married for 5 years, 10 months, and several days. Henrich allegedly was born in 1701 and died on 22 Sep 1732. There may be an error in the reading of the tombstone.

222 A Peter Huber and Anna Maria Schwab had children baptised 1755-1772. This may be the same couple, but I'm withholding until the seven-year gap between 1748 and 1755 is bridged. Huber, Peter (I20810)
 
223 A Peter Rausch & wife Margaretha frequently appear on Lancaster Lutheran communicant lists from c1748-1772. A young man named Peter Rausch is confirmed at the same church in 1748.

______________________________________________

GENERATION NO. 1

.A1 Dr. Francis NEFF was born between 1678 and 1681 and died in 1739 in Lancaster Twp., Lancaster Co., PA,. His place of birth is uncertain. It was long assumed that he was born in Dühren, Germany because his marriage record is there. But recent research suggests that he was born in 1678 in Furtelbach, a town near Markirck, Alsace, France. He appears to be the son of Dr. Hans Heinrich Neff who was listed in the Mennonite Census as owning a house in 1687 in Dühren, Germany. Research suggests that Dr. Hans Heinrich moved to Dühren, Baden, Germany about 1681 after having spent time as an apprentice with his brother Rudolph Neff near Markirck, France. The description of Dr. Francis’s house in Dühren is identical to that of Dr. Hans Heinrich’s house. So we are fairly sure that ownership of the house passed from father to son.

The fact that in Pennsylvania Dr. Francis and his son Francis Jr. signed their names as Francis rather than Frantz gives some credence to a birth in France because the name Francis is closer to the French spelling Francois. The German marriage record uses the name Frantz Neff Jr. No doubt he was named for an elder Frantz Neff probably his grandfather. In those days Jr. did not necessarily mean father and son. The spelling Frantz, rather than the High German Franz, would indicate a Swiss or low Germany influence which in the US we have come to call "Pennsylvania Deutch."

Dr. Francis Neff married Barbara EBY on 22 April 1710 in Dühren, Germany. She was born about 1686 in Michelfeld, Germany. Barbara died before1739 in Lancaster Co., PA. Their marriage record reads “Frantz Neff Jr. Doctor, Anabaptist, to Barbara Ebin von (from) Michelfeld." It is recorded in the Altestes Kirchenbuch von Dühren, page 169 – Trauregister, Pfarrer von Berg, 1708-1741. This marriage might have been performed to satisfy the state’s requirement so Francis could buy land. His Anabaptist marriage could have taken place a couple of years earlier and the sons Francis Jr. and Henry could be a couple of years older than I had estimated them. Both of these sons were 16 on or before April 1, 1728 when they signed the Naturalization Petition with their father at the home of Martin Meili.

Some people have transcribed Ebin as Boehm. The two spellings look quite similar in the German script of that time. However, when the handwriting in the marriage record is compared with other names on the same page, such as Barbara and Eva, and surnames that end in "in," the name is surely Ebin, the feminine form of Eby.

The inventory of Dr. Francis Neff’s possessions in Dühren was dated April 4, 1719. Because the inventory was filed in the archives at Gemmingen, Germany for this reason some thought they lived in Gemmingen. The inventory lists outstanding debts, items he was selling and goods that he and his family were planning to bring to America as they prepared to leave Dühren for Philadelphia. No doubt they left soon after April 4, 1919 for America, such trips lasted about 3-4 months depending on the weather encountered at sea.

The Dühren records make it clear that Dr. Francis Neff (A1) was not one of the Neff brothers who left Bonfeld with the Funks on May 23, 1717 (see the A2 and D-Lines). At this point we have no primary sources to prove that Francis and Hans Heinrich Neff were brothers. Daniel I. Rupp’s Lancaster County History, 1884, page 906, calls them brothers. But that account mixes the A and B lines together and so it is a questionable source. Following Rupp’s statement I considered them to be brothers. So in 1985 I gave them the numbers A1 and A2.

As one can see in the notes on the Neff families A2 and D, it seems certain that the two Neff brothers who came in 1717 with the Funk families were Dr. Hans Heinrich Neff (A2) and Jacob Neff (D). I do believe from secondary sources, occupations, religion, the naming of children and oral tradition that Dr. Frances, Dr. Hans Heinrich and Jacob were brothers and no doubt sons of Dr. Hans Heinrich Neff the owner of the house in Dühren, Germany.

I list 8 children for Francis NEFF and Barbara EBY. There might have been more. The known children of Francis and Barbara are in GENERATION NO. 2 that follows.

______________________________________________

GENERATION NO. 2

.A11 Francis NEFF was born about 1711 in Dühren, Germany. Francis died after 1763 in Lancaster Co., PA. He had no known marriage or children.

.A12 Magdalena NEFF was born about 1714 in Dühren, Germany. Magdalena died December 1793 in Lancaster Co., PA, Strasburg Twp. She married (1) Samuel MILLER 17 October 1733. He was born 21 January 1711, the son of Jacob MILLER . Samuel died 4 November 1739. Magdalena married (2) John SCHANTZ after 1740. He was born about 1710 and died 1776. The executor of her will was her brother Jacob Neff. In her will, Magdalena left all her property to her brother Jacob Neff, her sister Catherine Kendig and the four children of her deceased sister Elizabeth (Mrs. Martin) Kendig, named as Martin, Elizabeth, David and Francis. Note: A15 Esther’s two sons are not listed here but then neither are the children her brother Henry (A13) nor her sister Margaret (A14). Magdalena married in 1733 no doubt raised her brother Jacob and sisters Catherine and Elizabeth after their mother died in the 1730s and their father died in 1739. This is no doubt the reason that they were her heirs.

.A13 Henry NEFF was born about 1712 in Dühren, Germany. Henry died June 1755 in Lancaster Co., PA, Lampeter Twp. He married (1) ___ DILL about 1737. She was born about 1717 in Germany. They had 3 known children (see the next generation). He married (2) Mary Schantz and they had 3 known children. Two other children might be the wives of Martin Bare and Christian Hare who were the guardians for the minor children in 1758. Henry’s will probated in 1755 named “my brother Jacob Neff (A16) and my brother-in-law John Huber” as executors. So Huber’s wife might have been a Neff or sister of one of Henry’s wives. (See the next generation).

.A14 Margaret NEFF was born about 1717 in Dühren, Germany. Margaret died April 1782 in Lancaster Co., PA, Strasburg Twp. She married Martin MILLER about 1740. He was born about 1713 in Lancaster Co., PA, Strasburg Twp. He was the son of Jacob MILLER . Martin died March 1773, will dated 7 Jan. 1773. They had 5 known children. (See the next generation).

.A15 Esther NEFF died about 1750 in Lancaster Co., PA, Lampeter Twp. (See A24 for more discussion on Esther.) The Hans Herr Book lists Esther as a daughter of Dr. Hans Heinrich Neff A2, which is probably incorrect. The latest edition gives her as a daughter of Dr. Francis Neff. She married John HERR 1744. He was born 1720 in Lancaster Co., PA. He was the son of Emanuel HERR and Maudlin (Brechbuehl) BRACKBILL . John died 30 August 1797 in Lancaster Co., PA. They had 2 known sons, John Jr and Francis. John Sr married (2) Hester/Esther SHANK after 1750 (See the next generation). She was the daughter of Henry Shenk. They had 7 children.

I listed Esther as a daughter of Dr. Francis for three reasons: 1, If Barbara wife of George Eby was a daughter in this family then Esther could not be as there were only two daughters in the A2 family. 2. Her second son was named Francis. The second son is usually named for the maternal grandfather. 3. Francis A1 had two granddaughters named Esther. 4. Esther and John Herr lived in Strasburg Twp., and had connections with Jacob Neff A16 and had no connections with the A2 line. The Herr Book also wrongly gives A16 Jacob Neff’s father as Dr. Hans Henry Neff, (see family 110 on page 6). One connection is as follows: In his will written 10 Jan 1758 (C-1-46), Henry Shank ordered that his widow was to have his real estate for her lifetime but after her death it was to go to his daughter Hester, wife of John Herr. Hester was John’s second wife. On 26 May 1797, the land was transferred by a straw deed from John & Hester Herr to Jacob Neff (A16) of Strasburg Twp. and back to John Herr the following day. A second reason is the marriage of A1526 Francis HERR, a grandson of Esther (A14), to Veronica Fanny NEFF (.A1631) on 25 May 1852 in Lancaster Co, PA. She was born 29 October 1791 in Lancaster Co., PA, Wheatland Mills. She was the daughter of Jacob NEFF (A163) and Elizabeth HERR . If this is a marriage of second cousins, Esther A15 has to belong to the A1 family. By placing Esther in this family means that she was also born in Germantown, PA.

.A16 Jacob NEFF was born 8 February 1727 in Philadelphia Co., PA, Germantown. Jacob died 16 February 1814 in Strasburg Twp., Lancaster Co., PA. He married Anna BRACKBILL 20 August 1755 in Lancaster Co., PA. She was born 8 January 1733 in Lancaster Co., PA, Strasburg Twp., the daughter of Ulrich (Brechbuehl) BRACKBILL and Veronica (Fanny) HERR . Anna died 18 November 1825 in Strasburg Twp. They had 5 known children (See the next generation).

.A17 Catherine NEFF was born 5 July 1729 in Lancaster Co., PA. Catherine died 5 December 1802 in Strasburg Twp. She married Jacob KENDIG about 1754. He was born 19 February 1734 the son of Henry KENDIG and Maria WOLFE . Jacob died 31 May 1814 and is buried in the Twin Elm Rd. Cem. They had 6 known children (See the next generation).

.A18 Elizabeth NEFF was born about 1731 in Lancaster Co., PA. Elizabeth died about 1787 in Lancaster Twp., Lancaster Co., PA. She married Martin KENDIG as his second wife . He was born about 1715 in Lancaster Co., PA. He was the son of Hans Jacob KENDIG . Martin died 1784 in Lampeter Twp., Lancaster Co., PA. Her brother Jacob Neff was executor for both Martin and Elizabeth’s wills. They had 4 children (See the next generation). Martin also had 2 children by a previous marriage.

______________________________________________

GENERATION NO. 3

.A131 Peter NEFF was born about 1738 in Lancaster Co., PA. Peter died November 1767 in York Co., PA, Newberry Twp. He married Ann about 1757 [? daughter of Samuel Good who died in Earl Twp., Lancaster Co in 1776.] Ann was born about 1740 and died after 1794 in Lancaster Co., PA, Manheim Twp. Known children of Peter NEFF and Ann [? Good] are:

.A1311 Elizabeth NEFF b. 16 June 1760 d. 14 July 1849

.A1312 John NEFF b. about 1761 d. 1831

.A1313 Ann NEFF b. 28 March 1766 d. 24 January 1833

This family lived in Newberry Twp. York Co., PA. Peter’s will dated 20 Nov. 1767 and proven 16 Jan. 1768 names his wife Ann and children John, Elizabeth, Ann. {York Co. Will Book]. His uncle Jacob Neff A6 of Strasburg Twp., Lancaster County was named executor of his will.

Peter’s widow then married (2) Jacob MEYER after August 1777 in Lancaster Co., PA, Manheim Twp. He was born 29 March 1721. Jacob died 4 November 1793 in Manheim Twp. Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society’s card file says his will is found in Lan. Will Book, F-1, p.528, dated 24 Jul 1793 and proven 11 Jan 1794.

Peter’s daughter Elizabeth married Christian Stoner and moved to Niagara, Canada. Ann married Christian Meyers of Lancaster County, PA. John married Mary Stoner and died in 1832 in Allegheny Co., PA, Indiana Twp.

.A132 Henry NEFF was born about 1741 in Lancaster Co., PA. Henry died October 1818 in Lincoln Co., NC. His will was proven, and he was buried in Lincoln Co., NC.

According to the Lancaster Co. PA. Misc. Bk. 1742-1760 p. 115 Sept. 4, 1758, Henry being above the age of fourteen... chose Christian Hare, guardian. Then follows the guardianship for bro. John A133 also over 14. So Henry was older than John was b. ca.1741.

He was probably the Henry Neff who owned land in Dover Twp York Co., PA from 1861 to 1862.

On Sept. 19, 1807 he was living with his brother John in Botetourt Co., Va. where he gave bond for the marriage of John's daughter Sally (Sarah) to Abraham Holderman.

Henry’s will in the State of North Carolina, Lincoln County, was dated 21 September 1818 and proven October 1818 in Court of Common Sessions, Lincoln Co. Abstract of text: “I, Henry Neff, of the County of Lincoln and State of North Carolina. Item: I will my debts be paid. Item: to My Brother John Neff living in the State of Ohio $208.00. Item: to My Brother Abraham Neff living in Nigare (Niagara, Ontario) $208.00. Item: to My Sister Anny (sic) Plow or Blough living in (Newberry Twp.) Pennsylvania, York Co. $208.00. Item: to Jacob Kistler -Senior, all my Money and property not willed. Item: I appoint Jacob Kistler & John Blow Jr. living in York Co., PA Executors of this my last will and testament.” Anne, sister of Henry, was married to John Blow or Plough and not Jacob Snyder. So Jacob Snyder must have married Anne Neff B54.

.A133 John NEFF was born about 1743 in Lancaster Co., PA. John died 1822 in Preble Co., OH. He married Elizabeth NORD 22 March 1768 in Lancaster Co., PA, Lancaster, Reformed Church. She was born about 1745 in Lancaster Co., PA. Known children of John NEFF and Elizabeth NORD are:

.A1331 Mary NEFF b. about 1769

.A1332 John NEFF b. about 1771 d. 25 September 1865

.A1333 Margaret NEFF b. about 1773

.A1334 Elizabeth NEFF b. 1775 d. before 1822

.A1335 Anna NEFF b. 1777

This family first lived in PA, and then moved to Botetourt Co. VA by 1794 and to Preble Co., OH sometime before 1815. The children as listed above may not be in birth order but the order is based on known facts.

This John Neff was originally designated as the O-line in "Neff and Related Families of the Early 1700s and Early 1800s." Since May 1995 this family has been placed as John Neff A133. This is based on the will of Henry Neff A132 and the marriage record of Sally (Sarah) to Abraham Holderman in Botetourt Co. VA.

John’s family moved to Preble Co. OH during or before 1812. It appears this family first lived in PA, and then moved to Botetourt Co. VA by 1794. In John Neff's will of 1822, a parcel of land is described as "southwest quarter of Section number 5, Township 4, Range 3; Children: eldest son John, next two younger sons George and Abraham, eldest daughter Mary, then Margaret (single in 1822), Anna, Susanna, Esther (Hetty), Sarah (Sally), Catherine, and Elizabeth deceased, who was married to a John Gish;" Her children named in John's will were John Gish, Abraham Gish, Jacob Gish, Mary Gish, Elizabeth Gish.

Their marriage record in Strayers Lutheran Church, York Co. PA. vol. 3 pages 100 and 101 says Abraham Neff son of Heinrich Neff (deceased) md. Anna Catherine Schodder, daughter of Jacob Schodder.

I’m not sure that Barbara and David were twins. The original Bible record is too faded. Children are from a Bible record in the possession JoAnn Neff, Bellevue, WA. Abraham is mentioned in his brother Henry's [A132] will, Lincoln Co., North Carolina, Oct 1818, " I will to my brother Abraham Neff living in Nigare, two hundred and eight dollars."

Abraham went to Canada in 1790 with his wife, six sons, and three daughters. He settled on Concession 2, Lot 30, in the Twp. of Sugar Loaf East, now Humberstone, Welland Co., Ontario, Canada. A cairn in Port Colborne bears their names, along with other family members. One source lists a daughter Catherine born Aug. 15, 1798 but she is also listed as the oldest daughter of Abraham’s son Henry and his wife Rachel Morningstar, which I believe to be correct. She married Jonas Minor and had a large family. She named her first child Rachel, no doubt for her mother, and her second child Elizabeth, no doubt for Jonas’s mother. Her eldest son she named Henry, no doubt for her father, and her second son Abram, no doubt for Jonas’s father.

.A135 Ann NEFF was born about 1749 in Lancaster Co., PA. Ann died 29 November 1837 in York Co., PA, Fairview Twp., will proven. She married John Plough BLOUGH . He was born about 1750. John died 28 October 1825 in York Co., PA, Fairview Twp., will proven. Known children of Ann NEFF and John Plough BLOUGH are:

.A1351 Mary Plough BLOUGH

.A1352 Anne Plough BLOUGH

.A1353 John Plough BLOUGH

.A1354 Betsey Plough BLOUGH

.A1355 Catharine Plough BLOUGH

.A1356 David Plough BLOUGH

The name of her husband is from the will of her brother Henry Neff [A132] who died in 1818 in North Carolina. John's will is recorded York Co., PA book P-339, dated 20 Nov 1822 and proven 28 Oct 1825. Wife given as Anne and children listed as Mary Plough, Anne Plough, Betsey Plough, Catharine Funk, David Plough, and son John Plough.

.A136 Jacob NEFF was born about 1751 in Lancaster Co., PA, Warwick Twp. He married Elizabeth FLORY 1 April 1783 in Lancaster Co., PA, 1st Reformed Ch., Rev. Hendel. She was born about 1757 in Lancaster Co., PA, Warwick Twp. Known children of Jacob NEFF and Elizabeth FLORY are:

.A1361 Molly NEFF b. about 1777

More work needs to be done on this family. I’m not sure that we have the right Jacob here. There was a son Jacob in this family but I’m not sure that he was Jacob K. Neff of Lancaster.

Neff, Frantz (I32172)
 
235 A2-Line Dr. Hans Heinrich Neff

By John F. Murray, Updated July 8, 1004

jfmurray@netnitco.net

Generation 1

.

.A2 Hans Heinrich NEFF was born about 1682 probably in Dühren, Germany. Hans Heinrich died April 1745 in Lancaster Co., PA, Lancaster Twp. He married (1) ____ about 1704 in the area of Dühren or Bonfeld Germany. There are 5 known children of Hans Heinrich NEFF and ____ (see Generation 2). Before 1739 he married (2) Franca _____ who was the stepmother of his 4 surviving children in 1745. She was probably the widow of Heinrich Funk who died in 1735.

This Neff family immigrated from Bonfeld, Germany in 1717 with his brother and family. Bonfeld is a town about 10 miles east of Dühren. They left Bonfeld on 23 May 1717 with the families of Heinrich Funk and his son Martin Funk. They were listed as Anabaptist. This Bonfeld Church record does not give the first names of the Neff brothers. But the Pennsylvania records of 1717 and 1718 show that the Neffs associated with these Funk families were Hans Heinrich A2-Line and Jacob Neff D-Line. Heinrich Funk and Hans Heinrich Neff settled next to each other on the Conestoga River in Lancaster, Twp. Jacob Neff D-Line and Martin Funk (son of Heinrich Funk) settled in Coventry Twp. Chester Co. PA. (See the D-Line) These Neff and Funk families must have been closely related because the children did not intermarry. We do know that the great grandparents of Heinrich Funk were Jacob Funk married to Anna Neff from Ober Mettmenstetten in the Knonau District of Canton Zurich, Switzerland. But this marriage would not have prevented intermarriage of these Neff and Funk families in PA.

Recent research has proven that Dr. Francis Neff and family came in 1719 and was not one of the Neff brothers that immigrated from Bonfeld in 1717. See A1 Dr. Francis Neff concerning his relationship to Dr. Hans Heinrich Neff A2 and see the D-Line for more on Jacob Neff’s family.

__________________________________________

Generation 2

.A21 Hans Heinrich NEFF was born 1705 in Dühren or Bonfeld, Germany, died 8 June 1784 in Shenandoah Co., VA, and was buried in at New Market in the Kegey-Neff Cem. His will probate 29 Jul 1784. He married Ann _____ in Lancaster Co., PA. She was born about 1714. Ann died 14 April 1796 in Shenandoah Co., VA. Date of death is from tombstone in the Neff\Keagy Cemetery which reads, 1796, April 14 "AN." She is buried next to John Henry. There are 7 known children of Hans Heinrich and Ann Neff. (See the next generation with numbers beginning with A21).

.

.A22 Johannes Jacob NEFF was born 1709 in Dühren or Bonfeld, Germany. Johannes died 1 February 1717 in Bonfeld, Germany. This death record was recorded in the back of the Bonfeld church records.

.A23 Catherine NEFF was born 15 May 1711 in Bonfeld, Germany. Catherine died 2 March 1789 in Warrick Twp., Lancaster Co., PA, and was buried in Middle Creek Cemetery. She married Michael PFOUTZ. He was born 21 May 1709 in Germany. He was the son of Johan Michael PFOUTZ and Ursula MUELENHAUSER. Michael died 21 March 1767 in Lancaster Co., PA, and was buried in Middle Creek Cemetery. There are 4 known children of Catherine NEFF and Michael PFOUTZ. (See the next generation with numbers beginning with A23).

.A24 Abraham NEFF was born about 1719 in Lancaster Co., PA. Abraham died about 1793 in Lancaster, PA. He married Mary HERSHEY the daughter of Christian HERSHEY . She was born 1721 in Lancaster Co., PA and died about 1799. There are 4 known children: Christian m. Magdalena/Martha ___; Esther married (1) Adam Breneman, married (2) Christian Corral; Maria married John Breneman; and Elizabeth married George Gundecker. I list these here because I did not list Elizabeth in 1991. These names come from an unrecorded Lancaster Co. Deed issued in the settlement of Abraham’s estate. (See the next generation with numbers beginning with A24).

.A25 a daughter Lancaster deed B301 says Abraham (A24) had 2 sisters and an older brother Henry. The second daughter of Dr. Hans Henry Neff A1 has not yet been identified and she might be older or younger that Abraham.

In my 1991 list following "the Eby Report" I placed here Barbara, the wife of George Eby of Warrick Twp. But we now know that Barbara was not a Neff. I believe she was a Miley a sister of Christian Miley, the guardian of her children after her husband George Eby died. The Hans Herr Book says that Esther Neff who married Hans Herr was a daughter of Dr. Hans Heinrich, which is probably incorrect. Everything known about Esther would indicate that she was A15 the daughter of Dr. Francis Neff. See the A15 Esther Neff for more on Esther. It is of interest to note that in the 1700s the name Esther Neff occurs only in the A1, A2 and D Lines of Neffs. Francis A1 had two granddaughters named Esther (A161, and A176). Hans Heinrich A2 had 1 granddaughter (A252) and 1 great granddaughter (A2118) named Esther. Jacob D-Line had one daughter (D4) and 2 granddaughters (D14 and D56) named Esther. In the A and D families similar statistics occur with the name Margaret and Francis. Every Neff line has unique names that help identify their ancestral connections.

Another possibility for a second daughter is Anna/Nancy Naf who married in Lancaster on February 13, 1743 to Hans Peter Seitz of Strasburg Twp. But I question this because they lived in Strasburg Twp among the children of A1 and she can easily fit into that family. Noting the spellings on the marriage record causes me to believe that Ann Naf was the daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth (Kuhn) Naf and a sister to Elizabeth Naf who married June 24, 1744 to Felix Leinbacher. Ann and Elizabeth were orphaned in 1735 when their parents died at sea coming to Philadelphia on the Ship Mercury. So we are still missing one daughter of Dr. Hans Heinrich Neff A2.
