    1. [BRE] Re: How does Groups.io work?
    2. James Shuman
    3. Melanie, Thank you for asking this question. I am going to post this to the Rootsweb list, so that all of our members will be able to see it. On Feb 4, 2020, at 4:55 PM, Melanie Rice <mjrice.denver@gmail.com> wrote:Hi there! So glad to see the Brethren genealogy group continuing! How does groups.io work? Do we get emails letting us know there are new posts, or do we have to visit the site to check in? How do we post questions for the group? Thank you, Melanie RiceFort Wayne, INmjrice.denver@gmail.com In many ways, for many of us, it will function much like what we are used to. Most of the people who have been using the new service for a few weeks are saying good things about it. But there are some differences, as well. For instance, If you really need to include a graphic, you will be able to do that (but that “costs” us in terms of the amount of storage space we are allotted for free, so let’s be cautious in using it). I’m not sure how you will find out there are new messages; I thought the message was sent to your e-mail address, as it has been, but perhaps you will simply receive a notice of a message being posted. One thing that is different is that your first message to the new list is moderated, meaning it will not post until one of the moderators reviews it and approves. After that, however, you are on your own to maintain the high standards that we are used to on the old list. If you violate those standards for any reason, you can again be moderated, which is a real nuisance for both the user and the moderator, since every single message must be read and either approved or rejected. So if it takes a little while for your first posting to go through, remember that one of us has to read it and approve. With nearly 100 subscribers in the first afternoon, I want to give everyone two seemingly opposite suggestions: 1. Please make a posting soon, either a reply if you can answer a question, or to let us know you are here and participating (since your first message needs to be approved, let’s get as much of it done as possible in these first few weeks). 2. Please make your postings as meaningful as you can, so that our conversations are worth the time others spend in reading them. About non-members subscribing: there seems to be some differences of opinion on exactly how “open subscription” works. If you have a friend who is not now a member of our group, but would maybe kinda like to be, ask them to send a message to Brethren-genealogy+subscribe@groups.io with the word subscribe as the message. I want to see what happens, because I really am not sure whether they will need an invitation from me or not. Let’s see. I’m sure there are several other things we will all discover as we go along, but we’re on our way! James Shuman, Brethren List co-moderator jshuman@telis.org

    3. Friends and colleagues all! A new site for our Brethren discussion group has been set up and ready for our use. All subscribers to THIS group should receive an invitation to join the NEW group within a few hours. If you are not a subscribers here, or for whatever reason, failed to receive an invitation, please send a message directly to me at jshuman@telis.org, saying “Please send me an invitation” and I’ll see that it is sent. You may still continue to use this web site also until March 2, but you are welcome to begin sending messages to the new site, Brethren-genealogy@groups.io, as soon as you have subscribed. Please, in the beginning, keep your messages as simple and free from graphics, photos, and other heavy-byte consumers. James Shuman, Brethren List co-moderatorjshuman@telis.org

    1. [BRE] Re: More George Hoffman Info
    2. Bill Thomas
    3. Patrick: Found additional information that is relevant to identifying George Hoffman of Montgomery County, OH. His wife Fanny is in the 1860 census listed next to Daniel Noffsinger, who is identified in the census as 'dunker clergyman'. There is bio on Daniel in the 'History of the Church of the Brethren of Southern Ohio' and an obituary on Daniel and his wife in the 1873 Gospel Visitor (page 380). Both the biography and obituary state Daniel was born in Westmoreland County, 'near Greensburg'. Most on-line genealogies have Daniel the son of Peter Noffsinger of Washington County, PA. However, a John Noffsinger has a 1774 warrant for property in Westmoreland County, with the warrant index stating 'Ligonier' next to his name. The survey states it is along Four-Mile Run and 'Glade Road' (Rte-31), which is in what is now Donegal Township, Westmoreland County, along Laurel Hill/Ridge/Mountain (not from Seven Springs Resort in Somerset County). A 'Nancy Noftzinger consort of John' who died in 1829 and is found in the cemetery listing of Hoffman Lutheran Cemetery in Jenner Township, Somerset County. This is the same Cemetery that Jacob Hoffman (1761-1842) and his wife are buried. Jacob's son John Hoffman married a Nancy Noftzinger d/o of John & Nancy and possible sister of Daniel. So I don't think it is coincidence that Franny was living next to Daniel Noffsinger. As I noted earlier, Franny Emmert and George Huffman are named in estate papers of Wendel Emmert and his wife Mary (said 1813 previously, re-reading it was 1803). These papers refer to George Huffman of Stonycreek Township. A George Huffman had a 12/23/1803 warrant for property in Stonycreek Township, Somerset County. Also, a Jacob Hoffman had a 1774 warrant in then Turkeyfoot Township, that an adjacent survey shows was along 'Laurel Hill Creek'. So this is more circumstantial evidence that George Hoffman of Montgomery County, Ohio was likely the brother of Jacob Hoffman (d. 1842) and both son's of Jacob Hoffman with the 1774 warrant, who is later found in Quemahoning Township tax records. Also likely that Philip Hoffman of Paint Township (a German Baptist) was another brother of George and Jacob. Also there is possibly another brother, who is John Hoffman, the executor of the 1795 estate of Wendel Emmert. Bill Thomas

    1. [BRE] Sell/Sells family in VA in 1772
    2. Richard Sell
    3. Hi. The Ancestry files show a 1772 Tax List for Berkeley Co, VA (WV). It says, Anthony Sell of BRN Sells." I know Anthony Sell/Sills/Sells was there then, migrating from York Co, PA where he had married Mary Noel about 1759. His grandfather was a Germantown PA/York County Mennonite founder Hendrick Sellen a.1665-1749. My question is, does the abbreviation "BRN" mean Brethren (C.O.B.)? That's my best guess. His earlier relatives had association with the Dierdorff's in York County, who I believe may have been C.O.B. in the 1700's.  Thanks, Richard Sell, dicksell@aol.com Sent from AOL Desktop

You really need firm documentation (like estate paper's), to confirm this name. One of my relatives Christian Thomas married Susanna Hoffman d/o Philip. Philip was associated with German Baptist preacher Peter Maugen/Morgan. Peter's daughter Hannah married Philip's son Jacob. His daughter Mary was the first wife of Christian Thomas. Conrad lived on a hill overlooking Johnstown, PA (Wertz Farm). A biography on Peter is found in the 'History of the Church of the Brethren of Western, PA'. Peter died about 1810. Peter's estate paper's mention Christian Thomas. Peter was the son of Conrad Maugen who lived in Wolfsville, MD in Frederick County. Hoffman family likely lived near them in Frederick County.
