The Amish of the Chester Valley

S. Duane Kauffman

  • 2450


Subtitled "A Challenging and Puzzling Venture," the author has uncovered answers to long-held questions about this Amish settlement that sent many descendants to other communities. In fact, his findings have led to conclusions quite different from previous understandings. Family surnames who settled here between 1767 and 1834 include: Beiler, Coffman, Fike, Fisher, Garber, Kauffman, Kanagy/Kenegy, Konig/King, Kurtz, Lapp, Miller, Oberholtzer, Plank, Rickabaugh, Reel/Riehl, Souder, and Zook/Zug. (224pp. color illus. index. Author, 2014.)
