 1. Nicolaus Cressman, b. Abt 1727, , Limerick Co., Pennsylvania
Group Sheet  F2580 
Notes  Nicolaus Cressman, "the progenitor of this numerous family, was a native of Switzerland from which place he emigrated to America at a very early date. He settled in Limerick County, Pennsylvania, where he resided until his death. His family consisted of several children, all of whom settled in Limerick, Montgomery, and Chester Counties. His youngest son's name was Nicolaus who was born soon after his parents' arrival in America.(From the late Isaac B. Tyson of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania). All efforts made to ascertain to whom he was married proved fruitless, neither can the exact date of his birth be given. Tradition has it that he was born in 1727, and died a middle aged man. His family consisted of several sons and daughters. The names of three of the sons have been obtained, namely: Nicolaus, John and Daniel. (Nicolaus was the eldest in family and only half-brother to John and Daniel). Of the others no information has been received."
