I am still trying to establish which of the : brothers my relatives were decended through. I am a decendant of Sarah Ann Ashbaugh,John Ashbaughand Catherine : Sarver, His father is supposed to be Thomas Ashbaugh who was the son of Frederick Ashbaugh son of Johann Heinrich: Eschbaugh. Anyone have any help?

There is a possibility that the last name of Susannah is Kemmein and that all Rummel connections are in error.
Catherine and Polly may have been one and the same person. If not they may have been twins or born the same year and one would have married the other's husband after the former's death.

11. Catherine SCHECRON was born about 1732. She died.

Fifth Generation

16. Johann Heinrich ESCHBACH was born 1706 in Germany. He died 1789 in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. Johann married Maria Elizabetha UNKNOWN before 1738.
Johann Heinrich Eschbach came to the United States landing in the port of Philadelphia on September 5, 1738 aboard the ship the "Winter Galley" which had set sail from Rotterdam, Holland. Johann is listed among the passengers of the ship as among the Palatine and others. Upon his entry in the port of Philadelphia, he signed his allegiance to the King of England, and from this the signature of Johann Heinrich Eschbach is available.
17. Maria Elizabetha UNKNOWN died 1792 in Huntingdon County, Pa..
Research has suggested several suggestions for Mary Elizabetha's last name. Among these are 1)Hahn. Henry's youngest child was Elizabeth (1749-1751), who died at the age of two years, seven months. The death record notes that her mother was the sister-in-law of Henry Antes, who married Susanna Hahn May 28, 1793 (I have not seen this documentation). 2) Mereck - based on presumption of adherance to traditions and is based on how the godparents of the children and others are related to the family, 3)Antes - this is incorrect as research has confirmed that this Johann Heinrich is not related to us but is the Johann Heinrich Eschbach of Faulkner Swamp. (there have been other possibilities but as of yet there is no definitive documentation! Henry Ashbaugh and Mary Elizabeth may have even met aboard the Winter Galley, which carried 139 men and 112 women and children.
20. Jacob RUMMEL was born about 1698 in Germany. He died. Jacob married Elizabetha ERNST.
21. Elizabetha ERNST was born 4 Feb 1694 in Lentzburg, Berne, Switzerland. She died.
