George Frybarger/Freiberger/Fryberger arrived in Philadelphia on the ship Commerce on October 9, 1803, with his father Johannes. We've always thought they came from Germany, but a petition signed by George Frybarger in 1835 indicates Switzerland. I have no other information on George's father, either. Additionally, George Frybarger was turned over to a man by the name of John Kurtz to be reared. Does anyone have any information that might shed some light on this? This was in Lancaster County, PA. Thanks for any and all assistance.

It has since been discovered that a descendant of George Frybarger was Sylvester Frybarger. A Biographical Sketch of Sylvester's life is attached - it notes George.

Thought this might help someone. I have a GEDCOM file of this family if anyone is interested.
