I can't help you with what you wanted to know--dates and places of birth.
I was wondering if you have the mention of Johannes Gumre in "William Penn and the Dutch Quaker Migration to PA." "The land which he purchased appears to have fronted on the beautiful creek known by its Indian name of the Wissahukon; and some eighty acres of the land he and his wife sold in 1719-20 to Johannes Gumre and "the Congregation of the Brethren", popularly known as the Dunkards, or Tunkers." Would you believe I forgot to write the name of "he'. It was one of the original 13.
There are also two abstracts of wills of Matthar Deaves, and a will abstract for Isaac Deavs. Same names of children and grandchildren given for both, but different dates for wills, and dates proven. Do you have those also?
