Jacob Ebersoll, the Immigrant of 1763, and his Descendants


During the eighteenth century, six men with the surname Ebersole emigrated from Bern, Switzerland, to the Province of Pennsylvania. Jacob Ebersoll, the author's maternal ancestor, arrived in 1763 and settled in Donegal Township, Lancaster County. In searching for information about the Ebersoles, the author found a great variation in the spelling of the name including: Aebersohl, Ebersohl, Ebersol, Ebersoll and Eversole, along with a number of less common variations. The author has formatted this genealogy using the familiar New England Register style. The entries are numbered and generally include the following information (as available): full name of the descendant, full names of parents, date and place of birth, date and place of marriage, name of spouse, date and place of spouse's birth, full names of spouse's parents, names of children along with date and place of birth, and references to sources used. Valuable tidbits of biographical information, such as military rank and accomplishments, are provided for some individuals. An every name index augments the records.
