3. Because the Abraham connection mentioned the Germanna Colony of Virginia, I ran a search for Germanna Colony. Results included Germanna.org, a treasure of information about two groups of Germans who came to Virginia in 1714 and 1717. Among the second group of colonists was “Breyhel/Breuel/Broyles/Briles/Bruhles, Johann/John and wife Ursula Roup; children: Hans Jacob, Conrad, Maria Elizabetha/Elizabeth”: my Broyles family.
4. According to the Germanna site, the Broyles came from a place called Schwaigern. I searched for Schwaigern and got a Wikipedia.org article noting that Schwaigern is a town in the district of Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
