The Glattfelder family came from Glattfelden, Zurich Switzerland. Most of the Glattfelder families in America came from two brothers Casper and Johann Peter Glattfelder. They were the sons of Felix Glattfelder born 1669.
Casper was born 1709 and Johann Peter born 1700 started to America in 1742 with their families. Johann Peter died enroute and the two families returned to Glattfelden. The next year the two families left again for America, landing in Philadelphia 1743 on the ship Francis and Elizabeth. Both families settled down in York County for a time. Casper's decendants are found here today.
Soon some of the families left for North Carolina. One of Johann Peter's daughters Barbara Glattfelder married Johannes Hildebrand and stayed in York County, Pennsylvania. This is my Flinchbaugh Family connection with the Glattfelder's.
Many of this early Glattfelder Family and the Hildebrand's are buried at the Bupp's Union Cemetery in Loganville, PA
