The bulk of this database has been taken from Descendants of Jacob and Barbara (Shirk) Houser compiled by J. Marvin Lee in 1963; revised in 1966; with a second revision in 1976 and used with permission on the internet by Mr. Lee's daughter, Nancy Lee Stover. This database will take a while to bring online, and eventually Mr. Lee's work will be updated as more complete information becomes available.
