This document is not a biography, but actually is key evidence that David Sherbondy is a son of Melichor Sherbondy, evidence not found elsewhere. In the original translations of the German church records in Pennsylvania from German to American, David’s name was translated as “Daniel.” This letter, from an author of one of the original translations, explains the mistake.
“Sherbondy Family Pioneers”, biography of Abraham Sherbondy, written in 1994 based on documents and evidence gathered by Jeanette Sherbondy. For many years, Abraham Sherbondy’s connection to generation 2 (Melcher or George was assumed) was the most elusive of any ancestor (probably because of his frequent moves). This was despite the fact that Abraham had more descendants in the SFA records and had more individuals researching his ancestry than any other grandchild of John.
