The Samuel Fox Diary; Berks County, Pennsylvania
An original German script diary (written 1480-1881), presented along with an English translation, traces the European origins of the immigrants as well as descendants of a large group of Berks Countians arriving in Pennsylvania in the 1700s. Samuel’s extended family, over 200 persons, from multiple generations are named, many of whom first settled in New York in the 1600s and journeyed to the Tulpehocken region. It is the perfect research tool for anyone with German, Dutch, French, Swiss or English ancestry, living during colonial times. Supporting, documented, biographies tell many fascinating true stories of not only the Fox Family, but other first families as well, including: William Penn, George Washington, Pennsylvania Governors Hiester, Pennypacker, Schneider, and Ritner, and Berks County families Weiser, Lincoln and Boone.
