1. Re: [PHIFER] George Fifer, Sr. & Agnes Shirey of VA [1]
Marta, I was very excited when I read your email message. I believe that I am descended from George and Agnes (through George Jr.->Jacob->George->Jesse->Walter->Me). I don't know how much I could provide to the discussion, but I would be happy to share any info I have. What I would like to know, however, is how to access your site. Is there a web address? If I go to Ancestry.com, how to I get to your site? Thanks for putting it out there, and I look forward to hearing from you. Scott Fifer Indiana

Hey, We are part of the North Carolina Phifers-Pfeiffers. Our ancestors came from Switzerland. Many of them came through Virginia to get here. Who was George's father?

13. Re: [PHIFER] (no subject) [1]
It is my understanding that they came from Berne Switzerland, which is close to the German lines, which means that they could have been either.

When you grandmother said said it was Dutch, I'm betting she meant Pennsylvania Dutch, which was really German.

15. Re: [PHIFER] (no subject) [1]
My Pfeiffer family came from Zepfenhan, Rottweil, Wuerttemberg, Germany.....on the outskirts of Stuttgart near the Black Forest. There were and still are many Pfeiffer families living in this area. My Jacob Pfeiffer, who is my gggggrandfather, was born before 1758 but I have yet to lock in the dates. Jacob's grandson Maximilian and a few cousins settled in Brown County, Ohio in 1863. I have some evidence that one of them served for the North in the Civil War with a German/American brigade out of Kentucky.
16. Re: [PHIFER] (no subject) [1]
I am interested specifically in Phifers who are in my line. It helps to know the Phifers in general in the 17th and 18th century, if nothing more than to rule them out of my family. Likewise it may help the Southern Phifers to be able to exclude my family. I spent 60 years believing the genealogist hired by my Great-Uncle Frank that our ancestors were two brothers who ran away from Switzerland and changed their names so they wouldn't be found. I see considerable confusion about the two

19. Re: [PHIFER] (no subject) [1]
There were two large unrelated families with numerous sons before the American Revolution named PHIFER, which was Anglicized after coming to this county. There are a number of other PHIFERS on the immigration lists in the eighteenth century and, of course, many thereafter. It appears Anglicizing the PHIFER name was customary regardless of the group or their origin. One certainly understands this when seeing NARA records and the numerous spellings for each individual. The Southern group,

My Pfeiffer name, which was later Americanized to Phifer, came from the disputed territories of Allsace Lorrance, which is now in France, but over the centuries has either been Germany or France. Geva
