236 According to Henry Z. Jones, Jr. (1(1135)), "the German origins of Philipp and Martin Zerbe were at 6209 Kettenbach (12 km. n. of Bad Schwalbach)" in the commune of Minster, Germany.

D. Curtis Hester (10(1)) wrote: "It is legendary that the Zerbe family is of French origin, being natives of France and moving from Lorraine to Switzerland, and later to the Palatine. Their known ancestral home being at Kettenbach, Germany. Fragmented records of the family begin there in 1643...."

[Martin Zerbe descendants.FTW]: "Fragmented records of the Zirbe/Zerbe family begin in Kettenbach, Germany in 1643. It is legendary (sic) that the family is of French origin, being natives of France and moving from Lorraine to Switzerland, and later to the Palatine after the Edict of Nantes was revoked."

In an article entitled "Finding the Ancestral Home of a Palatine Forefather: The Case of Martin Zerbe," (source 103) Henry Z. Jones, Jr. wrote: "...Martin Zirbe(n) was the earliest direct ancestor of the immigrant found at Kettenbach. This Martin Senior was buried there on 8 Mar 1694; his wife Anna Elisabetha or Elbet survived him, as the records show she was buried at Kettenbach on 8 Jan 1703..."

238 According to Mason Spelts Zerbe, Sr.'s records (source 46), Phillip "bought and lived on the old homestead adjoining Hetzel's church. He was granted a warrant for a tract of land from the Commonwealth of Pa. May the eighth, 1798, called 'Good Intent' to be held in trust for the Lutheran Congregation, and upon which tract was built Hetzel's church."

The 1790 census (191(5)) shows Phillip, Adam, Andrew and Benjamin Zerbe living in Pine Grove. Phillip, Benjamin and Adam appear on the same census image (191(8)), suggesting that they lived near each other. I suspect that they are this Phillip and his brother Benjamin. Adam and Andrew may be unknown brothers of Phillip and Benjamin. -- Mark Zerbe
