************************ Introduction *********************

Two books have been published on the descendants of John Singer of Dauphin Co., PA. One covers Conrad Singer / Sanger and his descendants (hs1) and the other John Singer and his descendants (hs2). When questions came up recently (2002) about the ancestors of some Singers, they did not seem to be mentioned in either of these books. A quick review of currently available Federal Census data revealed a number of other families lived in the county 1790-1850 at least some apparently not derived from the children of John and his wife. Although there seems to be considerable additional data on these Singer families on the Internet, it is scattered. Thus, this web site was compiled to try to provide much of this material and the references in one place.

The coverage quickly expanded beyond Dauphin and nearby counties both because the material was readily available and because Cumberland-Dauphin County descendants moved on.
NOTE: ALLEGHENY and CAMBRIA counties do have a number of Singers in the 1880-1930 census and undoubtedly, some are linked to Westmoreland Singers. THEY WERE NOT COVERED HERE AT THIS TIME.

Material was taken from postings at GenForum and at World Connect Family Tree. It is hoped that those authors will not feel "robbed" but will understand that this is an attempt to make the information easier to find for other researchers of the Singer lines.

A star * in front of a child's name indicates there should be a saparate listing for him and his family. Not all information about an individual is given where he is listed as a child. All of these should have a link to family site and a link back to the parents.

I have found it very frustrating to have typed a date or place in a developing manuscript and then have to spend considerable time trying to relocate the source of that information. Thus, I typically try to indicate at least one source in (). Often, not all sources are indicated when they provide the same information. (di) is used for the death index for a particular state. (ssdi) for the Social Security Death Index. (will) indicates a will from the indicates jurisdiction. (mi) is for a state marriage index. (igi and (af) for the International Genealogical Index and Ancestral File of the LDS church. Other abbreviations are used for other sources which are supposed to follow the details of the source listed under the references section for each family. I realize this may make the reading more difficult but feel the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. In many cases, when there is conflicting data, all are presented. This allows the user to investigate further to decide which to accept. It also indicates that I am aware of a difference even if I think one clearly incorrect.

Iindividuals with the surname Singer who were born in foreign countries have not been included here.

The user of this material should be aware that connections based on census data may be misleading. Children in the family may be just visiting or may be orphans. They may be listed with the surname of the head of the family even though they are adopted and originally had another surname. Ages and even month and year of birth may be incorrect. Assuming a person with the same given name and of about the same age came from a particular family is usually reasonable but not always correct. Even printed biographies may have incorrect data and connections. Thus, the material presented here may provide leads but should not be accepted as "proven." The critical user will need to find additional sources such as wills, cemetery records, and birth and death certificates to truly verify connections.

I hope to add to this work as further information becomes available. Suggestions and additional material are welcomed. From editing drafts of this page and from past experience, there undoubtedly are both typing and logic errors. Please forgive me for these

*********************** Possible alternate spellings of SINGER ********************

As with most surnames, either the person or the one who recorded the name may not always use the same spelling. When the original records are transcribed, there may be errors in reading or in typing further changing the names.
The surname Singer is reportedly derived from German written in English as Saenger. Some continue to use the spelling Singer but one line tended to use the spelling Sanger after leaving Dauphin Co.. Others used Senger. Sometimes this may have become Zinger as it did in one of my own records. I would assume that Zanger and Zenger would also be possibilities. Undoubtedly, some early spellings like Zinger later became something like Singer. Syngar has been reported as another variation. I suppose the final e might be replaced by an a or the handwritten record transcribed as such for any of the previous variations. I have seen one suggestion that when early American handwritten records were transcribed, someone might take an S for an L or T giving Linger and Tinger as possible spellings. Finally, I wonder if some longer names might have been shortened to Sanger such as Sangerhausen.or Sanghier. There probably are other possibilities but this should be enough to alert the reader to consider other possibilities when researching records.

Of course, given names may also have alternate spellings. Original names such as Johannes may be anglicized to John. There may also be difficulty in transcribing handwriting especially where the name is a bit unusual. However, a further complication is the use of multiple given names and the use, as adults, of what was used as a middle name as a youth. Finally, some people simply seemed to have changed their given name for reasons we will probably never know.

.... Barbara.
.. Children 11 as presented in House of Sanger Vol 2:
...*.i. Jacob SINGER, Jacob is mentioned in the will of Daniel 1794 (hs2) and is likely the one in the 1790 census for Dauphin county. He probably was born before 1774 and reportedly died before 15 Dec 1800 (hs2) leaving a wife Franey.
...*.ii. John SINGER, born between 1760 and 1765 Derry Twp., Dauphin Co., PA (hs2) died 18 May 1810 leaving a will naming children (hs2). Also mentioned in the will of Daniel 1794 (hs2) and in the county in 1800.
....iii. Peter SINGER, mentioned in the will of Daniel 1794 (hs2) but not in Dauphin County census data, perhaps the one in Montgomery Co.
....iv. Mathias SINGER, born between about 1755 and 1765 (based on census), apparently had 6 sons and 5 daughters by 1810, mentioned in the will of Daniel 1794 (hs2) and apparently in the 1790, 1800 and 1810 census.
....v. Elizabeth SINGER, born about 1748, married
.......... WILTMER or WITMER mentioned in the will of Daniel 1794 (hs2). A John WITMER is present on the tax lists of Derry twp in 1769 and 1770 (hrdc) and several are present in Lancaster Co in 1790. .
....vi. Samuel SINGER, mentioned in the will of Daniel 1794 (hs2) and apparently the one in Dauphin Co 1790 (census).
...*.vii. Conrad SINGER, born about 1765. In Dauphin Co 1790, 1800, 1810, but moved to Rockingham Co VA by 1820 (census). Mentioned in the wills of both of his brother, Daniel, and of his father John (hs2).
....viii. Henry SINGER, listed in Daniel's will as having died before 1794 (hs2), in Dauphin Co 1790 (census).
....ix. Barbara SINGER, married a
.......... HERTZLER mentioned in the will of Daniel 1794 (hs2).
....x. Mary SINGER, married
.......... Joseph RUDY (hs2) or Joseph RUBY (wds). The heirs of Mary are mentioned in the will of Daniel 1794 (hs2) suggesting she had died by 1794.
....xi. Danial SINGER, will probated Sept 10, 1794 naming brothers and sisters. He was of Derry township, Dauphin Co., PA and is in the 1790 census. Both the 1790 census and the lack of naming children in his will suggest that there were no surviving children. Only he and Conrad are mentioned as children in his father's will. In a photocopy of the recorded copy of the will, the name of the second son is not clear and might be read as David but seems more likely to be Daniel (cms).
.. Notes: Both a John Singer and a Simon Singer are listed as taxpayers for the west end of Derry twp. in 1756 and 1758 but only John is listed in 1769 and 1770 (hrdc). Although one night suspect and some have reported that Simon was the father of John, his wife, Elizabeth, married Henry Eby soon after his death in 1763 (hrdc chap 6) and reportedly had more children. If John was her son, realisticly, she would have to have been born before 1815 and would have been in her 50s when the last Eby children were born. Possible but not too likely. However, she could have been a second or later wife of Simon (cms). There is no indication of a connection of John to Micael probably Michael Singer who is present in Dauphin Co 1790.

.... Michael SINGER is in Dauphin Co PA 1790 and 1800. There is good reason to think he is not a son of John Singer but might be some other relative. Michael SINGER and family of Hanover, Germany, immigrated to Pennsylvania on the ship "Royal Union" Captain Nicholson from Rotterdam via Cowes August 1750 and took the oath of allegiance 15 Aug. 1750 in Philadelphia (hdc). His wife was a native of France. Probably the same Michael SINGER had a warrent for 100 acres in Lebanon (probably then Lancaster) Co., PA 5 June 1754 (pt).
.. Children (at least):

.... Hannah SHAFFER whose parents resided in Lancaster and Dauphin counties (hdc).
.. Notes: John Michael SINGER was a Captain in the Seventh Company, Fourth Battalion during the revolutionary war 1786-1790 (hdc). Tradition says that during the war the father of Michael and remainder of his family were killed by Indians (hdc). John Michael acquired an excellent education and became a noted mathematician (hdc). He was a surveyor and also made plans for large mills and supervisor of their construction (hdc). John Michael Singer's family lived in Northumberland Co., Dauphin Co., and an area now in Lebanon Co. PA (lh). In 1800, they were in Upper Paxton twp. (lh,c1800) and 1803 in "Millerstown" (lh). About 1813, he obtained land in Ohio, apparently at what became Mechanicsburg, Chester and West Chester (hdc). He built a fine stone home there and never returned to Pennsylvania after the death of his wife there (PA) about 1816 (hdc).
