Recently I received the following information via a relation from a Russell genealogist, George Ely Russell. I was wondering if anyone has this Brossman connection in Berks Co. PA.

My 5th great grandmother is "Margaret" Anna Margaretha Brossman, also referred to as "Maria Margaret", and "Peggy", born Abt. 1734, probably in Berks Co, PA where some of her children were baptized. She married Abt. 1753 "Jacob Russell" Hans Jacob Rosell, baptized 3/16/1727-8 of Hefertschweil, immigrated 5/1/1743 from Obermettmenstetten to Berks Co. PA, the family later moved to near Keedysville,Washington Co.MD, where they had bought land in 1762.

Three of their children who were baptized in Berks Co:

(1.) "Jacob" John Jacob Jr Russell baptized 6/2/1754 by the Reverend H. W. Stoy at Trinity Tulpehocken Reformed Church, sponsors: Jacob Gasser, Maria Elizabeth Lesch (in present Jackson Twp, Lebanon Co. PA)

(2.) George Russell baptized 5/8/1757 at Stouchsburg Christ Lutheran Church sponsors: George Hollstein, Catherina Brossman (in present Marion Twp, Berks Co, PA). Bef.1790 George founded Russellville in Hopewell Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA.

(3.) Sarah Russell, also called Sallm(a), Maria Salome/Salley/Sally Rossel, baptized 6/7/1761 by Rev. H. W. Stoy at Trinity Tulpehocken Reformed Church, sponsors: Francis Brossman and wife Maria Salome

Other Berks Co. related information:
"At the auction sale at Tulpehocken of the estate of Henry Boyer on 13-14 April 1757, Jacob Rosel paid almost 2 pounds for a piece of barchet. Jacob Rosell’s name appeared on the list of taxables in Heidelberg Township, Berks County, for 1758. At Trinity Tulpehocken Reformed Church on 29 June 1760, Jacob Rossel and wife Margaret sponsored the baptism by the Rev. J. William Otterbein of John, son of Jacob Gassert. Rosell was naturalized at Tulpehocken on 11 April 1763."

All the area Yohe/Yoh/Yoe families are more than likely related, we just don't know all the connections yet. We live nearby. Someone told me that the town of Yoe was named after the founder's wife's maiden name, because there were too many Elizabethtown's.
