I feel that one is German and the other is of English or Irish in origin. There is a statement handed down in my family that may be of significance. It was related in this manner: From Elizabeth Miller Shutlz b. 1-27-1786 to Elizabeth Shultz Gordon b. 10-16-1812 to Lucy Meighen Porter b. 1883 to James B. Meighen b. 4-21-1915 (Elizabeth Miller Shultz says) "My father and three of his brothers fought in the Rev. War." It might be one of these early families together. Four brothers in the Rev. War.
