In KEYHOLE for October 1991, XIX, 177, is a record of Daniel Leatherman, who did November 9-1797 in Frederick County, Maryland. Two of his sons: Daniel, died 1799 and Michael, died 1811, came to Washington County (Pa), as did a Christian Leatherman. Annette K. Burgert in her 1992 EIGHTEENTH CENTURY EMIGRANTS FROM THE NORTHERN ALSACE lists a Daniel Lederman, baptized at Langen- soultzbach, Alsace November 6-1718 and a Christian Lederman born August 27-1730, baptized at Falckner Swamp (Pa). These were sons of Diebold Lederman and his wife, Mary Engel, of Mattstall, Alsace. Diebold landed at Philadelphia in 1727. Is this Daniel of 1718 the one who died in 1797?
