Thanks for the correction Jerry!
    Your response is the best I've found, and I'm sure Dave Obee or the 
others can do a much faster efficient job to help Mr. Gitzel.
    Do you have time and space to explain more about the Moravian Brethren, 
and the Baptist researchers?  Any help is greatly appreciated.
Warm regards,
