We participated in the Wolff DNA Project in an effort to determine whether Alex's paternal line really connects back to Adam Wilhem Wolff. The results are in and we have more evidence that Daniel, son of Frederick Lorenz Wolff, was actually a stepson. Now, we face the big brick wall - Who was Daniel Wolff?
The earliest HAAS family members known in this country were in Berks, Co. PA The KEFFER family came from Baden-Wurtenburg, Germany to Somerset Co, PA. The Conroy family came from Ireland sometime in the mid-1800s. The location in Ireland is not confirmed. We believe they traveled from Philadelphia to Ohio, where Frank Conroy married, had children and lived the remainder of his life.
The SANDERS and YATES families were originally in VA. Sanders family were early settlers on the frontier in Western VA, having moved from NC. The WOLFF family came to York County, PA from Germany, spent a short time in Monocacy, MD, then moved to the Moravian Settlement in Bethania, NC. Cousins John Carr and Paula Bennett have provided much needed research and filled in many blanks to make these pages possible. I am forever gratefult to them. We are part of the Wolff DNA project and hope to put information about results online over the next few months.
