Our immigrant ancestor in this line, Adam Spach, came to America with his father in 1733 aboard the Charming Betty. Adam Spach and his wife, Maria Elisabetha Hütter, have thousands of descendants, only a small minority of whom (around 1100 people, including descendants and their spouses) will be found here. As I add more names to my database, these pages will be revised to include more descendants.
