The Schreyer family is an offshoot of the Keister family. We only know of Elizabeth from the marriage records which show that Lewis Schreyer gave his consent and Susan Schreyer was the witness. These are probably her parents but this is not certain as there are other possibilities.
The 2 generations we have are from the Revolutionary War period of America’s history. This family is another of the early settlers of the Shenendoah Valley which indicates they may have come from Pennsylvania as this was a common route of the time. Whereas coastal Virginia was settled in the 17th century, the mountainous western Virginia was not settled until the mid 18th century (beginning in app. the 1740s).
