Setzer-Setser Family Page
A class of old German citizens from the 16th century,
natives of the Preuben province, residing in Eberswalde (Wild Boar Woods or Forest).
There is also listed, that the Lt. & Commander of an infantry troop,
Herman August Setzer, in 1654, was distinguished for his great value
to the Nation of the Prussian king's authority with the
Medal of Valor, 1st Class and with paper of nobility in Pergament.
[from John Lee Setzer, Sr.'s book, Setzer Setser Genealogy]
Most descendents on this page are from Jacob Setzer (abt 1730 -
1766) and wife Mary Magdalene Bovy of North Carolina.
It also has descendents of George Tobias Setzer (1732 -
1808) and wife, Elizabeth Berrier of Pennsylvania, and
Michael Martin Setzer of Pennsylvania.
Most assume these 3 Setzer's as sons of Johann Adam Setzer who arrived in
Philadelphia on the ship
Patience" on 8/11/1750.
I have no real knowledge or proof of this.
(5/10/2017) I have now added the Fore Fathers of Johann Adam Setzer,
based on information found at Genealogy.com and Wikitree.com
to my database. You can use this information for your research
but I have no real knowledge or proof of this.
Below or some Setzer's or close spelling, of those
