Michael Eberle:

Notes:

Michael was a tailor and capmaker, also holding a political office in Strasburg, Germany. When he became part of the Pietistic movement the family was driven out, eventually moving to Schwartzenau. There they joined the congregation of Alexander Mack, or the New Baptists. Apparently after Michael's death, his widow came to Pennsylvania with her adult children and their families.
"After disembarking in Philadelphia, [they] stayed with friends in Germantown until the matriarch, Anna, purchased a property on which they lived for some years, in the area now known as Groffdale. She is buried on Hans Groff's community burial lot about a mile northwest of her home."
