Notes for J
Per David Fosnocht, not too distance cousin and exceptional Fasnacht family researcher:
"On Johan Conrad Fasnacht's (1751-1809) Revolutionary War service, I don't have the data immediately at hand, but Rob Welsh, a descendent of this JC Fasnacht (and an anthropologist by profession) did the report that was the basis for his mother's entrance to the DAR, based on this JC Fasnacht's Rev. War service. That report is available at the DAR library in Wash., DC, and it does a very good job of piecing together the Rev. War service (good enough for the DAR to accept it), as well as discuss the other Fasnacht lines, to distinguish them from this line.
David Fosnocht, Washington, DC"

-Most of my information on these first three Fasnacht generations come from the works of my many different cousins. I am particularly indebted to David and Bruce Fosnacht (genealogically speaking my fairly close cousins, also descendants of Fredrich (1784-1823)). Their extensive work has been critical in the quest for getting to know our early Fasnacht ancestors. -About the mentions of Samuel1.  I have included a Samuel in my database as our earliest ancestor because I believe in Bruce's instincts that he is 'ours', however I didn't include his line HERE because it isn't yet proven. HOWEVER, Familytreemaker insisted on adding his name as an ancestor for these reports.  SO consider Samuel to currently be a possibility.
