  • Notes 
    • Michael Gingerich, "the progenitor of this numerous family, emigrated to America in 1747 and settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He was born near the city of Strassburg, Alsace, Germany, about the year 1725. He was a farmer. His family consisted of several children but the names of only two have been received while the names of the others together with that of his wife have not been obtained. The two whose names we received were Abraham and Joseph. (From the late Jno. Gingerich near Waterloo, received by the writer in 1869.)"


      Eby, Ezra E. (1895). A biographical history of Waterloo township and other townships of the county: being a history of the early settlers and their descendants, mostly all of Pennsylvania Dutch origin: as also much other unpublished historical information chiefly of a local character. Berlin [Kitchener, Ont.]: [s.n.].

      _______________

      In Ezra Eby's book, the progenitor of the Gingrich family was named Michael. This has since been shown to be in error. The forefather of the Gingrich's in this record is Ulrich (not Michael). Therefore, there are differences between this and Ezra Ebys record. For more information, see THE GINGRICH GENEALOGY, 1981, John Edmund Gingrich, pg xi -xii in the introduction.
