"From Sea to Shing Sea - The Kring Family"

Dallen Selders, who I know from church, has lent me his copy of this book (he's a descendant and his family is listed).

Johann "George" Kring married Magdalena Fye, and came to what's now Adams Twp in Cambria Co from Woodbury Twp, Bedford Co. in 1806.

His children:
George of Jenner Twp married Martha Stump;
Frederick of South Bend, Ind. married Elizabeth Steiner;
John of Adams Twp married Elizabeth Varner;
Jacob of Indiana Co married Elizabeth Rose;
Henry of Adams Twp married Polly Shaffer;
Conrad of Westerville, Ohio married Catherine Seidner;
Elizabeth married Jacob Baumgardner of Wayne Co, Ind.;
Catherine married Joseph Baumgardner of Stephenson Co, Ill.;
David of Adams Twp married Agnes;
Magdalena married David Snavely of Richland Twp;
Daniel of Bedford Co married Elizabeth Fichtner;
Barbara married Jacob Davis of Westmoreland Co;
and Samuel of Adams Twp married Rebecca Wertz

I am in the process of entering data from the book, concentrating on the families in Cambria Co, into my tree. As I do, I am also looking up census records, etc, on Ancestry to verify the info and add missing dates where necessary. I did an update of the online tree at Rootsweb and Ancestry this morning.

Be looking for even more info on folks in the Adams Twp area in my tree.
