Notes  Michael Gingerich, "the progenitor of this numerous family, emigrated to America in 1747 and settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He was born near the city of Strassburg, Alsace, Germany, about the year 1725. He was a farmer. His family consisted of several children but the names of only two have been received while the names of the others together with that of his wife have not been obtained. The two whose names we received were Abraham and Joseph. (From the late Jno. Gingerich near Waterloo, received by the writer in 1869.)"
