Genealogy has become a hobby for me over the last 10 years. For me, it's like a puzzle, I love fitting the pieces together. But over the years, I've researched a lot that does not pertain to our family lines. Some for extended family, some for close friends, and some because I was trying to rule out lines to figure out where our line went exactly. I do not want these notes on my Heather's Genealogy Notes blog - because they are not our lines. But I do like to share all of my research, in case it benefits others. That is what this blog is for - research I have done that does not apply to our own family lines, but may be helpful for someone else.

Smith's In the Egypt Reformed Church Records - More John & Hannah

I'm hoping that by researching the other Schmidt's here, I will perhaps find a connection with John.  No luck so far, but this does confirm that Hannah is Stofflet, not Sufflick.  (with a german accent, both spellings would sound almost identical)
