Research Notes

Whitehall Penn Birthplace

From Thurston: I have a problem with the place of birth of Susannah Zerfass (1773-1856): according to Wikipedia, there are several place called "Whitehall" in Pennsylvania (see Whitehall, PennsylvaniaWp globe tiny), but they are in Adams County, Allegheny County, Lehigh County and Philadelphia County, none in Northumberland County. Can you shed any light on this? Is it in a different county now than it was in 1773, or has it changed its name? Thurstan (talk) 09:39, October 18, 2014 (UTC)

FHS listings form several siblings also show Whitehall of Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. I cannot see anything to confirm or negate this theory. There are some other references to Lehigh County, PA.
