Your website is excellent! Congratulations! I also have Marijane's book and find it most helpful. Since it is out of print, it is most beneficial to others that you are adding much of it to this website. I descend from: Griffith Sr, Griffith Jr., Abia and Martha John, Elida and Sarah (Hughes) John, Hugh Lindsay and Laura (Diller) John, Barclay and Mary Ann (Trimble) John, Nevada John and Harvey Holman, myself. A few years ago, my husband and I visited the cemeteries where our early Johns were buried in Pennsylvania. Marijane and Win Zerphey and Tom and Mary Wright were our tour guides. We also visited with Henry Deemer and wife and viewed the lovely sampler of our ancestor, Martha John. It was a trip of a lifetime for us. Judy

In these times of National Crisis and War it is great to know that many in our family have served our country so well. Hnery's father and my father served in World War II and before them their grandfather and his brothers served the Union Army in the Civli War. My brothers and I served in the Army and Marines durning the sixties. My nephews served as a Navy Seal and Marine Recon in the 80's and 90's.

I am seeking a connection between the John Family and my ancestor, David Davis (c.1750-1820), married to Nancy (?) and perhaps others, and producing children: Abner, Thomas, David, Joseph, John, Betsy and Elijah. They lived in Northumberland and Montour counties, PA, for at least some of their lives. David and son Joseph (b. 1800; m. Elizabeth Hamer) were also Quaker for some part of their lives. I believe the Thomas Davis or Davises who married Rebecca John and Grace John were part of this family. There are too many coincidences, too numerous to list, to overlook the link between these two families.
