E1-Line Jacob and Eva Catherine (Florin) NAFF

By John F. Murray – May 8, 2000

John W. Boitnott did the original research on this line. The E-line in his book, "Naff And Related Families," says that Jacob (E1) and Sebastian (E2) were brothers and sons of Jacob NAFF and Anna Elernopage. I have not proven either statement. They appear first in Lancaster Co. PA., tax rolls after 1768. Since he joined the Church of the Brethren (Dunkard Church), he was no doubt the Jacob Neff "Donker" in the Lancaster tax list in 1759 for Heidelberg, Twp.

Jacob is reported to have moved to Franklin Co., PA before moving on to Franklin Co., VA. But Franklin Co., PA was not formed until after he moved to VA. He might have lived in that area of PA that borders Frederick Co., MD, as he left no records in Frederick Co.

When they came to PA has not been confirmed. Boitnott said that Sebastian came in 1739. But he had not yet been born. He also said that Jacob came on the Ship Dragon that arrived Sept. 26, 1749 in Philadelphia. There was a Jacob Neff on this ship but Jacob if born in 1735 would have been only 14 and too young to sign the list. Only men 16 and older signed. However this Jacob could have been the father of Jacob and Sebastian. More research is needed. The facts that the name Sebastian occurs in the ancestral background of the C-Line and that they settled in PA in the area of the C-Line might suggest some relationship to the C-Line.

GENERATION NO. 1

.E1 Jacob NAFF was born 16 March 1734. A researcher in NC gave this birth date to me as a date from Jacob’s tombstone. But supposedly the tombstone has now disappeared and cannot be confirmed. But it must be close to correct as he married by 1755 or 1756.. Jacob died before 6 October 1806 in Franklin Co, VA. He married Eva Katherina FLORIN in Lancaster Co, PA. She was born 8 September 1733 on board the Ship Hope. She was the daughter of Joseph FLURE. Eva died in Franklin Co, VA. Known children of Jacob NAFF and Eva Katherina FLORIN are in the next generation.
