About Daniel Ferree

A French Huguenot, and a wealthy silk manufacturer. They lived in Landau, France, along the Rhine River, and to this union were born six children. Catherine, the second child, was later to marry Isaac LeFevre, the immigrant to America that we hold to.

After the Edict of Nantes, in 1685, the family fled to Strasburg, France. While here, they were joined by Isaac LeFevre, a lad of 16, who also had fled his home when the other members of his family were killed. They later fled on into Bavaria in Germany, taking with them Isaac, and while living there, Isaac and Catherine were married. They stayed in Bavaria until the early part of 1708 when the senior Daniel died. At this time, his widow assumed her maiden French name, as an additional means of safety.

-------------------- John and Mary immigrated to the U.S. in 1709 with six children, including son Philip.
