    3. Hi, Georgia, I have checked, and sorry, I have no Kimbles or a Phebe Brant. My earliest Brant that I have been able to locate is Ezra Brant (Abt 1775-1834). He was b. in PA and m. Mary Penick. They migrated to Ohio cir. 1804 (Mahoning, Tuscawaras, then Pike Counties). His son Edward (my 3xggf) m. Margaret Jackson. They were found in Coshocton Co., OH in 1840, Owen Co., IN in 1850, and Ash Grove, Shelby Co., IL in 1870. Other family names common to find in connection are Jackson, Lash, Leidy/Leyde, Swank, and Kail. The first names seem to be English, rather than German, and I have never found an Ezra Brant as a son in any of the Pennsylvania sources of the Brandt/Brant German lines. The most common first names in Ezra's children's lines from 1775 - cir 1860 are Thomas, Edward, Seth, Sarah, Ezra, Rachel, Cassie, Alfred, Margaret, George, Shedrick, William, and David, without the double names common to German baptisms. My father always said they were English Brants, but I had expected to learn that they had really been Palatine immigrants. At this point, I am assuming that they really did come from England, although I don't have any candidates for an emigrant ancestor. I surely would like to find Ezra's parents! I found a reference to an Ezra Brant in New York, but it was during the work I've been doing on my Neill/Gammill/Hix/Mallard lines for some months and never got back to check the New York Ezra reference out. Does any of this fit with your Phebe Brant? Regards, Lorraine Allrelated On Tue, Dec 16, 2008 at 10:17 AM, <[email protected]> wrote: > Hi -- Do you have any Kimbles in your Brant line?

The wind scatters the leaves on the ground, but the live timber burgeons with leaves again in the season of spring returning. So one generation of men will grow while another dies." Iliad, VI.146-150, trans. Lattimore. So, tell me again, why the heck am I raking up all these leaves?
