[NI0472] From The Bicentennial History of Bath County:

"Perry Ginger had very little opportunity to obtain an education, he did know how to read and write and was a self-taught minister"

"Perry's early ministry began in the Valley Bethel Church of the Brethern Where he was born. He later moved to Chimney Run, approximately three miles north of Warm Springs, where he made his home the rest of his life."

"Perry was elected to the ministry on September 20, 1907 and advanced to the second degree on September 8, 1908. In 1909, a new church building was {?} on land obtained from James Bonner and is not the Chimney Run Church of the Brethern. The church was dedicated on September 11, 1910. Therefore, Perry and Dick Robertson were instrumental in helping to establish Chimney Run Church of the Brethern and was granted the priviledge of celebrating the Rites of Matrimony by the Bath County Circuit Court in November, 1913."

"In a memorial to Perry written by his daughter Zella, she stated "His was a full life, dedicated to the good and happiness and the spiritual elevation of his fellow man"."

"Two known articles were written and published in the Gospel Messenger about Perry which are: The Hard-Working Preacher - GOSPEL MESSENGER - about 1914 by Elder George A. Phillips; Elder Perry E. Ginger - GOSPEL MESSENGER - January 29, 1944 by Adam H. Miller, Bridgewater, Virginia"

Regiment History

Adjutant General's Report

The Forty-eighth Infantry Illinois Volunteers was organized at Camp Butler, Illinois, in the month of September 1861, by Colonel Isham N Haynie. The Regiment left Camp Butler, for Cairo, November 11, 1861, nine hundred strong, and, after its arrival, constructed barracks for winter quarters. In January 1862, was engaged in the reconnaissance in the rear of Columbus, under General Grant. February 2, embarked for Fort Henry, in W.H.L. Wallace's Brigade, General McClernand's Division. Landed a few miles below the fort, and was the first Federal regiment that formed a line of battle in Tennessee. February 6th, entered Fort Henry, which had surrendered to the gun-boats. February 11, moved toward Fort Donelson. 13th, in connection with the Seventeenth and Forty-ninth Illinois, Colonel Haynie commanding Brigade, charged the enemy's works, but was repulsed with a severe loss. 14th, was under fire during the day, losing men wounded.

February 15, was in position by the side of the Eleventh and Twentieth. The rattle of musketry, on the right, was incessant, and gradually approached the left, where the Forty-eighth was stationed, on the brow of the hill, and it was soon fiercely engaged. The enemy were twice repulsed from the front of the Forty-eighth, but they finally succeeded in turning the right of our line, and the Regiment was compelled to retire and form a new line, where the enemy was again repulsed, and he retired within the works. The Regiment lost, this day, forty killed and wounded. Among the killed was the gallant, daring and courteous Lieutenant Colonel Thomas H. Smith. The Regiment moved, with General McClernand's Division, to Savannah and to Pittsburg Landing. April 6 and 7, was engaged in the battle of Shiloh, the Regiment bearing its full part, and losing over half of its men, killed and wounded. Colonel Haynie and Lieutenant Colonel Sanford were both wounded on the 6th.

From here it was ordered to Knoxville, Tennessee, to the relief of General Burnside. Without rations, blankets or overcoats, and but half shod, the made a march of two hundred and seventy miles. The men used their blankets, jackets and trousers to protect their feet from the sharp rocks, the ice and the snow. Returned to Bridgeport, Alabama, December 17. Arrived at Scottsboro, Alabama, January 1, 1864, and although not yet recovered from their severe campaign, over none-tenths of the men present re-enlisted as veteran volunteers.

[NI0684] History of Fayette County, IL, 1878, shows Wm. born in Burke County, East TN, and was the eighth child in a family of fifteen, only five of whom were living.

[NI0689] Noted to have had four children by this marriage with only two known at this time.

[NI0697] "An addition to the military information concerns Milas C. Ginger. He
served during the Black Hawk Indian War, in the same unit as Abraham

[Source: Joe Ginger]

[NI0703] I believe this to be the father of Ludowick Ginger. In 1790 Census, there were two Gingers in Cumberland County, PA. Ludowick and Laudwick. In the 1798 Special Tax there was only one...this Ludwig. BUT, in December of 1798, in Rockbridge County, Virginia, Ludowick Ginger brought in a wolf's head for the bounty. So I believe this to be the father.

The 1798 Tax in Pa was called a "window tax" . The state needed money to pay for its share of the Rev. War. Tax assessors were sent out to see who lived where and who had windows. The people were taxed on the number of window panes in the house. Then the tax collector followed and collected the tax. The was not a very popular tax. Large land owners with no windows paid no tax. There were accounts of tax collectors being tarred and feathered. Any records of this tax are on Microfilm at the PA State Archives in Harrisburg.

Also, in a letter of March 6, 1956 from Mrs. John R. Lynch of Chula Vista, California to Miss Mary Galt, President of the Rockbridge County Historical Society, Rockbridge County, Virginia; Mrs. Lynch states the following:
"Several years ago I had some correspondence with a Mr. T.H. Bailey of Ridgeville, Indiana, who had known Great Uncle Sam Ginger and who could tell me a bit of the family. He said that ff was taken from a County History in preparation (possibly never published): "Ludwig Ginger came from Holland to America ca. 1700 and his son a worker of metals, Ludwig Jr. was born in Virginia. His son Lewis removed to Ohio in 1825 etc. He was married in Virginia to Rebecca McCreary who was of Virginia birth and Irish decent. Their son Samuel was born at New Paris, Ohio 1832." Mr. Bailey continued by saying that he personally owned several Ginger relics, among them two guns, 1 a rifle, 1 a shotgun, both muzzle loaders and one of them using the J. Golscher lock."

[NI2505] In 1840, Ebenezer appears in Caldwell County, KY; by 1850, he was in Shelby County, IL where he also appears in 1860. By 1870, he had moved to Hurrican Township, Fayette County. I have found no reference to his owning land, he is listed as a renter in both 1860 and 1870.

Ebenezer Alexander Robertson was said to be rather strong-willed (most said hardheaded). For example, he made it clear to his family that any grandchildren named for him must be named "Ebenezer Alexander, "not just "Ebenezer" or "Alexander." Probably as a consequence, two grandsons born not long after his death (son of Isaac Butler and William Allen) were named Ebenezer Alexander Robertson. In the latter part of the 1800's then, there were no fewer than four and no more than six Ebenezer Alexander Robertsons in the Fayette/Shelby area, the son, two grandsons and nephew of Ebenezer.

Ebenezer died at South Hurrican Township, Fayette County on February 3, 1878. He is buried in Little Hickory Cemetery, Fayette.

[NI3041] Charles was living in Pocahontas County at the time of his marriage to Mary Jane, a widow, with one son named Willie Moffet Rogers. Records indicate they resided in the vicinity of Buckeye or Mill Point then moved south to Huntersville, Pocahontas County. The family continued to live in that vicinity during the second marriage.

[NI3044] From The Rider-Ryder Family From Virginia:

Richard and his family lived most of his married life in the vicinity of Columbia Sulphur Springs, a crossroad village on the north fork of Anthony Creek. This are was Bath County until 1821 when Pocahontas County was organized from parts of Bath, Greenbriar and Randolph Counties. The county line for Greenbriar County was redrawn, and the area in the northern watershed of Anthony Creek became a new portion of Greenbriar County. Columbia Sulphur Springs became extinct with the construction of Sherwood Lake.

Richard's first nine children were born in Bath County. The two youngest were born after 1821 when his farm was in Greenbriar County. One letter he wrote to a son indicates that he was living at that time west of Lewisburg.

[NI3047] The following is from The Rider-Ryder Family from Virginia by Gordon James Ryder

"The earliest documented record of William Rider is located in the personal property tax records of Augusta County, Virginia, for the year 1782. Bath County was organized from parts of Augusta, Greenbriar, and Randolph Counties in 1821. Bath County deed records of 1828 show that William had died intestate and names his five sons and two daughters in the division of a 176-acre tract of land obtained by a land grant of 1789 and an adjacent 100 acres purchased by William in 1802, giving the survey number and previous land description. A copy of the land grant was obtained from the office of the Virginia State Archives in Richmond. The county engineers in Bath and Highland Counties were instrumental in determining for the author the appropriate boundaries of the above mentioned 276-acre farm owned by William.

Bath County records show that "William Rider was a member of the First Grand Jury of Bath County which convened May 10, 1791, at the home of Margaret Lewis, widow of Captain John Lewis, at Warm Springs." The source of this information is Bath County Brief History by Jean McAllister, 1920."

Isaac died of Cancer January 23, 1926 in Cowden. Nancy continued to live for many years in their house in Cowden, though later her sister, Aunt Ellen West, came to live there with her. Ultimately, Nancy went to a nursing home in Shelbyville, where she died in February, 1953 at the age of 97.

[NI3262] Quoted from The Rider-Ryder Family From Virginia by Gordon James Ryder:

"The 1900 Bath County census shows that six of ten children born were living. In the census of 1910, there are 9 children named, as above. According to these records four children were born and died before 1900. John was a farmer renting land in Bath County. He owned land he farmed when he moved to Millgap in Highland County. Issue 8 and 9 were twins."

The Ancestral File submission AF92-104912 by Shirley Cunningham, 917 Ansley Dr., Fort Wayne, IN 46804, primarily concerns the John Rarick/Elizabeth Heeter family. All AFN numbers beginning with THNQ and THNR are from that submission.

[NI3265] [ae19.FTW]

Barbara Heeter's husband John Rarick was also her step-uncle.

The LDS Ancestral File includes two daughters for Sebastian Heeter named Barbara: AFN:R5PQ-W0, submitted by Mrs. Brent Ossman as part of her family group for Sebastian Heeter, gives her birthdate as 14 Oct 1788. AFN:THNR-JV, submitted by
Shirley Cunningham as part of her family group for John Rarick & Barbara Heeter, gives the birthdate as 14 Jan 1789, which is the same one Lester Binnie gives in "The Heeter Family Letters", based on her cemetery inscription. Since Mrs.
Ossman's submission does not include any other data for Barabar other than the birthdate, it cannot be based on death records. Perhaps it is based on Huntingdon Co. birth records.

A letter written by Alma Traylor of Coffeen, Illinois, to Donna Woodcock of Gas City, Indiana, May 15, 1963, has the following text: "Samuel married a Beck, but I do not know her first name. Among their children were: 1, Amasa - m. a Linville
(had a large family), 2, Katherine - m. Aaron Lyerla, 3, Alice - m. William Lyerla, 4, Wesley, 5, Powell, 6, Preston. Sam's second wife was Mrs. Anne Williams, a widow with two daughters, Lillie and Bertha Williams. Samuel and Anne had a
daughter, Cora, who married a Beck and who died a few months ago."

Samuel's obituary reads: "Uncle Sam Sellers, one of the best known old settlers of the south part of Montgomery County, died at his home 1 1/2 miles west of Chapman, on Saturday night, May 8th, aged 80 years, 3 months and 26 days. The deceased
was born and raised in Ohio, and came to this county when a young man. He was twice married, his first wife being Miss Ruth Beck. Six children survive this union. His second wife, who survives him, was Mrs. Anne Williams, and one child from
this union together with her mother survives the deceased. The funeral was held Monday afternoon from the family residence, the funeral address being made by Jacob Traylor, of Coffeen, a nephew of the deceased. On May 4, Mr. Sellers and his
wife were driving a spirited team into Coffeen, when the horses became frightened and ran away, throwing the aged pair out of the buggy and injuring them. Mr. Sellers suffered from concussion of the brain and was unconscious almost to the time
of his death. The deceased was blessed with a cheerful disposition and was very active for a man of his years. He possessed a fund of stories and remembrances which he delighted in telling and which made him an entertaining conversationalist
and his memory will long continue to live in the minds of those who knew him and who held him in high esteem. The surviving children are Mrs. Catherine Lyerla and Mrs. Alice Lyerla of Crestline, Kansas; Andrew P. of Decatur, Illinois; M.P. of
Dubanque, Cal.; A. E. of Hillsboro, Ill.; S. U. of Grand Junction, Col.; and Mrs. Cora Beck, who resides in Oregon. All the children except M. P. Sellers were present." (Crestline, KS is in Cherokee Co., just over the state line from Joplin,
MO. Decatur, IL is in Macon Co. Hillsboro, IL is in Montgomery Co., near Coffeen. Grand Junction, CO is in Mesa Co. I couldn't locate Dubanque, CA in the Zip Code directory or atlas; it may have been absorbed into another town.)

The LDS IGI, from batch #84 003 09, submitted by Howard Kemp, lists this marriage as Elizabeth Brubaker and Thomas Gharst, m. 11 Nov 1841.

Most information on this family and descendents from pages 290-292 of William T. Garst's Our Garst Family in America, which gives a marriage date of 11 Nov 1842. According to this book, "Thomas Garst came from Botetourt County, Virginia, to
Somerset, Indiana in the autumn of 1848. In 1862 he purchased a farm of 420 acres. His house burned in 1872, and in 1873, he built a brick mansion, which is still standing, and which is three miles east of Somerset, Indiana. Every effort has
been made to locate an authentic record of the parents of Thomas Garst. Numerous suggested leads have been followed without results. The most promising theory points to John Nicholas Garst, Jr., who left no will, and a complete list of his
children has not been determined." (Note: Somerset is in the far south of Wabash Co., at the border with Grant Co., on Mississinewa Lake.)

Birth of Winfield H. Brubaker to Henry H. Brubaker and Hester Paulus listed in Ohio IGI, batch C512962, sheet 1818. I have not sent for it, but since it begins with a C, it is an extraction of a birth or christening record.

Marwin Brubaker lists the birthdate of Winfield as "Jun 1870". This is most likely a misreading of a census entry.

Brubaker lists the birthdate of Loren L. Brubaker as 20 Nov 1869. Since he has a lot of other data on this family, including Loren's date and place of death, I am going to assume that Marwin's date is correct, and the extraction should have
been listed as a christening, rather than as a birth.

Marriage is recorded as "Matthias Gressow and Elisabeth Maurer".

The History of Roanoke County and Bent Mountain Virginia, p. 184, states: "A well authenticated tradition is to the effect that the branch of the family which located in this section of Virginia emanated from a single male child who survived a
yellow fever scourge in the immigration of the Grisso family from Europe many years ago. Yellow fever broke out on board the German emigrant ship in which the Grisso family sailed for America. On arrival at the American port, a little boy was
all that was left of the name. He first settled in Bedford County and afterwards made his way to the Back Creek section of Roanoke County, and upon reaching manhood married. He was the father of Jacob Grisso, George Grisso who went west, and a
daughter, afterwards Mrs. Lud Sisson."

Jan 1695, aged 40, died legally married, wife Irene Charitas, children born at Steinwenden: 1. Johann Nikel 5-6-1685 6-6-1685, 2. Johann Abraham 6-1685 - died young, 3. Samuel 30-4-1687 - died same day, 4. Katharina Barbara 7-6-1687 21-6-1691,
5. Eva Katharina Apr 1691 29-6-1691, 6. Johann Michael 5-10-1692." The given birthdates for Samuel and Katharina Barbara are in conflict; I have guessed that "1687" in Katharina's birthdate should be read as "1689". (If PAF allowed for question
marks in date entries, I would have put one on both Samuel's and Katharina Barbara's birthdates.) Possibly other children were born prior to the family's move to Steinwenden.

Loyal's gravestone says 1863-1938 (see page 54 of Lester Binnie's Cemetery Records of Paw Paw and Pleasant Townships, Wabash County, Indiana), but 1900 census disagrees (see below.) The 1870 and 1880 censuses are not much help; they list him as
respectively 6 and 16. The censuses were taken in early August, so if he was born in 1863 he would have been 6/16 nearly 7/17, if he was born in 1864 he would have been 5/15 nearly 6/16. Either way, he could have been listed as he was.

Esther Kemp has 1 Jan 1807 for the marriage date, while Marvin Nelson (from Carridon Grisso's research) has 13 Jun 1807. Both claim to have as their ultimate source Botetourt County marriage records. But Mrs. Kemp got hers from a compilation,
while Carridon went to the courthouse and looked at actual records, so I will go with his. The Jan/Jun discrepancy could be due to difficulty reading handwriting. The 1/13 discrepancy may be a difference between date of issuing the marriage
bond versus the day the marriage took place.

The Jacob Brubaker family is listed in the 1820 and 1830 censuses in Botetourt Co., VA, in 1840 and 1850 in Roanoke Co., VA, and in 1860 in Wabash Co., IN.

In 1833 Jacob bought land in Roanoke County: deed book 19, p. 802 In 1836 in Roanoke County: deed book 22, p. 185 In 1853 in Roanoke County: deed book 32, p. 299 27 Apr 1857 in Wabash County: deed book S, p. 261 9 July 1857 in Wabash County:

[NI3544] [ae19.FTW]

This family on page 164 of "Our Garst Family in America."

Sources vary as to Benjamin's birthdate (see Lowell Beachler's comparison chart.) The 8 Apr 1816 is in the Garst book, as well as in the more definitive 1872 letter from Elizabeth (Rivercomb) Brubaker, wife of Benjamin's brother Abraham, to her
mother-in-law Saloma (Eller) Brubaker.

Esther Kemp lists a daughter Salome, born about 1850, married Allen M. Huffman. She does not list which marriage the daughter was born to. Since I do not know the marriage date of Benjamin to Susan Wolfe, and the birth year is only approximate,
I am not entering this daughter until I get a more exact birthdate and/or a marriage date for Benjamin's second marriage.

[NI3545] [ae19.FTW]

Esther Kemp has Magdelene Brubaker married second to "Daniel Blocher", but since her data is focused on Brubakers, and she has nothing else on Magdalene's husband except his name, while Leona's research has focused on the Blocher's, and she has
David's ancestry and vital statistics, I am going by her data. (She has David Blocher married to Magdalene Brubaker Frantz, so even though Leona has nothing else on Magdalene, it must be the same marriage because I cannot see it likely that two
D. Blochers married a Magdalene Brubaker Frantz in the same generation and same county.) Later addendum: Lowell Beachler's family group sheet for the family of Henry Brubaker & Saloma Eller also shows Magdalena married to David Blocher
1812-1886, and further notes that they had 3 children.

1810 Census of Botetourt Co., VA, lists on p. 623: Frantz, Christn Jr & Geo Grisso (names on two lines, with Geo Grisso indented, and a curly brace connecting them, one line of data): M: 2 < 10, 1 16-25, 2 > 44; F: 1 < 10, 2 10-15, 4 16-25, 1
> 44 (Although known later in life as Christian Frantz Sr. to distinguish him from his son, in 1810 he was called Christian Frantz Jr. to distinguish him from Christian Frantz b. 1740, his second cousin, who was also in the same community. The
two boys under 10 would be Christian Frantz age 5, and the infant Christian Grisso. George Grisso was 27 and Jacob Frantz had just turned 26; they should both have been in the 26-44 bracket, but it appears that Jacob was counted as 25 and
George was put in the 45-and-up bracket with Christian. The ages for the females fit for Christian's daughters and his wife.)

same generation as Jacob and Sarah, and thus possibly a sister. Jacob's sister Elizabeth married Jacob Olinger, and Dore M. Frantz gives her birthdate as 1786, although this is in conflict with her sister Catherine's birthdate. Sarah's sister
Elizabeth married Henry Hart; I have no birthdate for her. This is not to say that one of them could not have remarried to a Leffel before 1850.

agree with the lifespan of 1808-1864 from Lowell Beachler's family chart for John Brubaker Jr. & Phoebe Harter, but it was typed, so 1864 is an easy typo for 1874. And there is no other Catherine Brubaker of the right age in Preble Co.

Marriage of Abraham Garst to Anne Frantz listed on pages 1 and 34 of Early Marriage Bonds of Ohio, Volume 2, F. through L. Original record in Book 1-A of the Clark County Probate Court records.

Gravestone inscription listed on page 22 of the Dore M. Frantz burials document. It gives his date of birth as 16 June 1791. (However, this document is not consistent in how it treats inscriptions. Sometimes the exact inscription is given, but
sometimes the compiler calculates a date of birth from age at death, or adds dates from other sources, without indicating that such has been done. I have not seen the stone myself.)

The family of Abraham Garst II and Anna Frantz is listed on page 227 of Our Garst Family in America. His birthdate is there given as 16 Jan 1791. On page 225, in the family group listing for his father, his birthdate is given as 26 May 1791. I
am using the 16 Jun 1791 date mostly because it can plausibly lead to either other date as an error (the January date by a simple u-a switch, and the 26 May date by a mistake in the tens digit of an age at death calculation.)

Early Clark County Families, Vol. V, also gives the date of birth as 26 May 1791. But Our Garst Family may be the source for this entry.

Page 23 of the Dore M. Frantz burials document lists a tombstone for Abraham Garst, born Dec 26, 1822, died June 3, 1823, and the accompanying note identifies him as the son of Abraham and Anna (Frantz) Garst. However, the listing of that
family on page 227 of Our Garst Family in America lists as Abraham and Anna's second child "Abraham Garst, III, b. Nov 15, 1821, d. Oct 1, 1852" I have not found any cemetery record with the latter dates, but it seems a likelier date of birth
for Abraham and Anna's son, given the birthdates of his siblings. I have found neither any other Garst family likely to be parents of the Abraham who died as an infant, nor any cemetery record for an Abraham 1821-1852. For now, I am detaching
the Abraham Garst (#1873) who died as an infant, and using the dates from Our Garst Family for Abraham and Anna's son.

1850 Census of Clark Co., OH, Pike twp, enumerated 23 Aug, lists this family (#979) as: Abram Garst, 53, farmer, VA; Anna, 58, VA; Jacob, 22, OH; Joseph, 19, OH; Michael, 18, OH; Susannah, 15, OH; Elias, 12, OH. The age for Abram is wrong.

[NI3715] [ae19.FTW]

The Garber Genealogical and Historical Record gives Ada's birthdate as 28 Oct 1878, while Lowell Beachler gives it as 28 Oct 1877. Since she is a fairly close relative (his great aunt), I will take his word for it.

List of children and their years of birth from Esther Kemp, letter dated 7 Nov 1989. Esther lists all of John's children as being born in Botetourt Co., VA, including those from his marriage to Mary Frantz, but the family of Mary's parents,
Christian Frantz and Anna Gerst, was living in Clark County, Ohio by 1814, and there are marriages of John's older children from his first wife listed in Preble County marriage bond records as early as 1823. So she must be mistaken. I am
listing his second marriage and the birth of all the children from it as Ohio. Most probably the marriage was in either Preble or Clark County (but Clark County marriage bond records do not start until 1818), and children were born in Preble
County.

Dates completed, with additional info on spouses, from Lowell Beachler's family group sheets for John Brubaker and his two wives.

According to p. 28 of "Our Garst Family", there was one son born to the union of Mary Frantz and John Brubaker. Either this meant "at least one", or it was incorrect.

The marriage of John Brubaker to Phebe Harter is listed in the Virginia IGI, batch 8303303, sheet 83. (I have not sent for this batch.)

Lowell Beachler gives the marriage date for John Brubaker and Phoebe Harter as 30 Jan 1798. The 10 Aug 1798 date is from Our Garst Family.

Donnels Creek District records it as 31 May. Lowell Beachler's entry for the family of Jacob Crist Sr. on page 77 of Vol. I says that she died 31 May 1823. Perhaps an illegible first digit on a gravestone or some other document?

Nicholas Frantz family moved to Wabash Co., Indiana, so she is less likely.)

Lester Binnie's "The Heeter Family Letters", and the LDS Ancestral File, and Keith C. Rarick all give Elizabeth Rarick's lifespan as 25 Feb 1777-17 Feb 1868. But the only primary record I am aware of is her gravestone, which reads: Elizabeth
Heeter, wife of Sebastian, died Feb 17, 1868, age 90 yrs 11 mos 17 days (from Lindsay Brien's Miami Valley Genealogies.) If the transcription is correct, the inscription is ambiguous. The normal way of calculating age at death would never
describe someone as x years 11 mos days old on Feb . The usual way to interpret the age would be that on Jan 31, 1868, 17 days before she died, she was exactly 90 years and 11 mos old, which would mean that she was born on "Feb 31", an
impossible date. If someone were born on Feb for n <= 29, generally on Jan they would be described as x years 11 mos old, on Jan they would be x yrs 11 mos d days old, and thus on Jan 31 they would be x yrs 11 mos <31-n> days
old, on Feb 1 they would be x yrs 11 mos <32-n> days old, and on Feb , for 1 <= m <= n-1, they would be described as x yrs 11 mos <31+m-n> days old, and since n is always <=29, the days value is always at least 2 more than . So if
Elizabeth was really born on 25 Feb 1777, then on 17 Feb 1868 she would be age 90-11-23, and she would be 90-11-17 on 12 Feb 1868.

Lowell Beachler writes "great-grandmother Malinda Miller Blocher was daughter of George and Caroline Boomershine Miller. He had 3 wives, 19 children. Wives were Catherine Warner, Caroline, and Barbara Bollinger. We are from the middle wife. The
old Miller home in Darke Co., Ohio still stands. They came from York Co., Pa., in 1832 to Preble Co., Ohio, from there to Darke Co."

There are two George Miller families in the 1850 Darke Co. census who might fit. (There are also two others, but their wives' names are Mary and Elizabeth.) Without more info about their birthdates, I cannot tell which of these two entries is
for this George Miller. In German twp, on page 391, taken Dec. 6: Miller, George 30, Caroline 22, Matilda 5, Catherine 3, Eliza 1. Parents born in Pennsylvania, all children in Ohio. It is possible the transcriber misread Malinda as Matilda
(I'm using an indexed Ohio Genealogical Society typescript compilation for this census), but if so, George must have had no surviving children by his first wife. In Monroe twp, on page 403, taken Dec. 4: Miller, George 39, Catharine 37, John
15, Catharine 13, Jacob 11, Polly 9, Abraham 5. Abraham born in Ohio, all others in Pennsylvania. So if the census is correct, this family moved from PA to Ohio between 1841 and 1845. Also, if it is Malinda's family, she was born after 1950.

Most of my information on Sebastian Heeter and his 15 children and 133 grandchildren is from The Heeter Family Letters, edited by Lester H. Binnie, Rt. 4, Albion, Indiana, 1978. I have not entered that book as a source on most of these
individuals, to avoid repetition. See also pp. 84-86 of Vol. 4, Miami Valley Genealogies, by Lindsay Brien.

Stone in the New Providence Lutheran Cemetery in Perry twp, Montgomery Co., OH, reads: "Sebastian Heeter, died June 5, 1846, age 86 yrs 4 mo 5 days." It was marked by the DAR in 1935.

The appendix to The Heeter Family Letters gives Sebastian Heeter's date of birth as 1 Feb 1760, citing the stone above. In correspondence, Keith C. Rarick, Rt. 5, Box 85, Nashville, IN 47448, has it as 31 Jan 1760. (This is the date I would
infer from the stone, so I am using it instead.) The LDS Ancestral File (submission AF91-002448, from Mrs. Brent Ossman, 15256 Hyacinth Place, Dumfries, VA 22026) gives his birthdate as 23 Feb 1760. The Ancestral File record does not include a
death date, so perhaps Mrs. Ossman's 23 Feb 1760 date is based on a christening record. And finally, the Wabash County History, in an article by Mary Louise Heeter Leckrone, says that Sebastian was born Jan 6, 1760.

According to Keith C. Rarick, Sebastian was about 3 years old when his parents moved from Frederick Co., MD, to Bedford Co., PA, and settled in the area that is now Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania. Sebastian served in the Revolution a private, and
is listed in the DAR Patriot Index. He was issued a land grant for 200 acres on 11 Sep 1786, in what is now Hopewell twp, Huntingdon Co. His first wife, Elizabeth Dilts, died after the birth of their son George. About 4 months later Sebastian
remarried. On 14 Apr 1814, he sold the farm in Huntingdon Co. and went down the Ohio R. to Cincinnati. He traded 4 horses and a wagon for 60 acres west of Dayton.

The will of Sebastian Heeter, dated June 1, 1837, and recorded in Montgomery Co., Will Bk D, p. 315, on Aug 25, 1846, names wife Elizabeth; "all my children (in all fifteen)", naming specifically John, Barbara, heirs of Margaret; George, Henry,
Frederick, Abraham, Catharine, David, Daniel, Mary, Jacob, and Sally. The two youngest children, Samuel and Sebastian Jr., are not named, perhaps because at the time of writing they were under 21. The sons George and Jacob are the executors.

This is a placeholder to represent the father of Christian Ohmart (husband of Anna Weaver), whom church histories, etc., claim to be the son of a John Omert. It is not actually known whether the other children assigned to this family are
brothers of Christian Ohmart. It is only known that they lived in the same counties and were members of the same churches in the late 1700's and early 1800's, and were having their children in the same time period so were likely of the same
generation. They may well be cousins or other relatives instead of siblings. But by assigning them to the same family, I can easily step from one to the other in PAF.

where this very specific, but likely wrong, date came from.

Attribution as a daughter of Daniel Utz b. 1799 is only conjecture, based on his being the only Utz in Montgomery Co. of the right generation. But she may have come from another county. (There were other Utz families in Hamilton Co., e.g.)

Marriage in IGI, batch M514401, sheet 3842

[NI3984] [ae19.FTW]

This family is listed on page 217 of "Our Garst Family".

[NI3987] [ae19.FTW]

Shenandoah Co. Marriage Records list the marriage of John Ohmart to Barbara Dederich on 4 Mar 1817. I have used the spelling Detrick because that is how most of the family which migrated to Ohio ended up spelling it.

Leona Betteridge lists as probable children for John: "Jessie, George, and Barbara who married George Keifer." However, Clark County marriage records list the marriage of "Mrs. Barbara Ohmart" to George Keifer on 22 Mar 1827. John is unlikely
to have a daughter born early enough to be marrying in 1827, and the "Mrs." would seem to indicate that this Barbara was a widow. She was most likely John's widow, born Barbara Detrick, as John died in 1825.

[NI3998] [ae19.FTW]

Leona Betteridge lists as the children of George M. Ohmart: "Elizabeth md PRILLMAN, Jacob, Sarah md Jacob TREYLOR, Mary md Conway, Polly 1832-1859, Harriett md Robert Allen, Margaret, George, Christian, Samuel, George W., Catherine". But for
some of them I do not know which children are for which wife. Also, it is unlikely he had two sons named George. Could the George W. she listed really be the George Washington Ohmart born 8 Oct 1844 to Christian Ohmart (George M's son)?

[NI3999] [ae19.FTW]

This family on pp. 216-217 of "Our Garst Family". Page 216 lists a marriage date of 27 Oct 1832, while page 205 where Lydia Garst is listed under the family of Jacob Garst lists a marriage date of 1 Nov 1832.

[NI4018] [ae19.FTW]

Buried with wife Elizabeth, stones bear names only. Most information on this family from pp. 88-89 of Lester Binnie's The German Baptist Arnolds, his sources include Oren Ernest Frazee's The Arnold Family of Ohio, 1925, and Brethren church
records and obituaries.

This family has not been found before they appear in Montgomery Co., OH. A county history states that Henry Arnold came from Virginia, with sons Henry, John, and Christian. Most of the census records for Henry's sons say that they were born in
PA, though, so if the family did migrate from VA, they must have moved there from PA after the children were born.

Page 81 of Early Ohio Marriage Bonds lists the marriage of Adam Ohmert to Christena Frantz, on 19 Aug 1824; original record in Book 1-B. Also in IGI, batch M514401, p. 0606. Batch A537408, p. 0651 uses the Ohmart/Christina spellings.

1850 census of Pleasant twp, Wabash County, Indiana, taken in August, lists this family (#152) as: Adam Ohmart 47 Farmer, Christina 43, Samuel 19, Jacob 18, Levi 15, Eve 13, Joseph 11, Sarah 6, Anna 5, Julia 3; Adam and Christina born in VA,
Samuel through Joseph born in Ohio, Sarah through Julia born in IN.

1870 census of Pleasant twp, Wabash Co., IN, p. 28, enumerated 9 Aug, lists this family (#207) as: Ohmart, Adam, 66, farmer; Christenia, 62; Julia, 23; Israel, 19; Henry, 17; Ellen, 10. The parents of Ellen are probably Adam's son Levi, who was
living alone in the 1870 census, and his first wife Rebecca. Rebecca died in 1861, and Levi's second wife Sarah died in Jan 1870. It is doubtful that Christina would have had a child at 52.

The family group of Christian Ohmart and Mary Snyder is from a typewritten undated page compiled by Leslie M. Ohmart (1872-1946) of Dayton, Ohio, a son of Christian's son George Washington Ohmart. Curiously, it states "These people were the
parents of 16 children, three of whom died in infancy. The remaining thirteen were as following according to age:" Then it proceeds to list TWELVE children, and concludes "Samuel and the rest of the children was born in Iowa, while all prior to
him were born in Ohio." AND THERE IS NO SAMUEL IN THE LIST!! I was sent a photocopy of this page by Verle V. Ohmart of Scott City, Kansas.

This entry is only to hold together Frederick and Peter Figert to show that they were brothers; I really know nothing of their parents except that they were born in Germany, and probably remained there. Note, though, that both Peter and
Frederick named a son Jacob, and both named one daughter Margaret and another Catherine. These are good bets for the names of their parents. Another good possibility for their father's name is John. Peter definitely had a son named John, and
Frederick may have, since he had two sons I do not know the names of. And Granny Figert said that Walter's grandfather's name was John; she may have been thinking of his great-grandfather (it is known that she called her own great-grandfather,
George Grisso, her "grandfather" when she was telling stories about when and how he died.)

Day" (Wichita, KS: private printing, 1989), p. 40, gives the same birthdate but lists Mary's date of death as 15 Aug 1881. I trust the latter date more, since there are numerous errors in the Dore M. Frantz notes, as Mr. Frantz did not usually
distinguish between transcriptions of dates inscribed on stones and his own annotations based on other sources. I do not at the present time know what the basis for the 20 May 1849 date is.

Pages 227 and 240 of Our Garst Family in America give Michael's date of birth as 31 June 1832. But of course, June only has 30 days. It is possible that the inscription is 21 June 1832 and a 2 was misread as a 3.

Listed on p. 21 and page 27 of the Dore M. Frantz burials document. On page 21 her date of birth is given as 22 May 1821 and her date of death as 3 Sep 1857 and the notes identify her as "wife of Jacob Frantz, daughter of Michael and Susannah
(Neher) Frantz". On page 27 it gives her birth as 1831 and her death as 1857, and the notes identify her as "Lydia Frantz nee Frantz, wife of Jacob, son of Rev. John, gr.son of Daniel I. Jacob married Fanny Shull as 2nd wife and moved to
Illinois. Daughter of Jacob, gr.daughter of Michael, gt.gr.daughter of David I." Since Michael and Susannah were not married until 1823, and in 1821 Michael was married to Elizabeth Crist and had a daughter Elizabeth born in 1821, and since she
would be unlikely to marry a man seven years her junior, I am assuming that her date of birth is 1831, and 3 was misread as a 2 in the first listing. I am for now using the lineage from page 21, as there is a Lydia age 20 with the Michael
Frantz/Susanna Neher family in the 1850 census, and I do not have any other reference to a Jacob Frantz born to Michael Frantz son of David Frantz.

Wabash Co. Marriage License Bk A, p. 287, license issued to Jacob Ohmart & Louisa Howard, on 2 May 1853, returned 5 May 1853.

Jacob died childless. A letter dated Sept 30, 1862 from Samuel Heeter (Henry and Hannah Vaniman Heeter's son) to his brother Abraham, on p. 141 of "The Heeter Family Letters", describes how he died: "Jacob ohmart got kiled Very suden yesterday
he was polling oak grubs with a yok of oxen and he cut them of about three feet high and then he fasont the chane on them and when the oxen puled the chane hook flew back and struck him on the brest and kiled him in a minot"

George Heeter's "Chart of Ohmart Genealogy" prepared in 1976 has Jacob married to Hannah Levine, no marriage date given (she born 1835). Lester Binnie's "Early Families of the Eel River Congregation" has him married to Louisa "Arnold" on 5 May
1853, and Louisa appears as his wife, age 26, on the 1860 census. (His widow Louisa (Howard) Ohmart remarried to Moses Arnold.) If he was married to Louisa from 1853 (age 21) until his death, then there is not much room for another marriage.
Perhaps there is a different Jacob Ohmart who married Hannah Levine?

[NI4309] [ae19.FTW]

The dates of birth and death are from the gravestone, identified as Louisa, wife of Moses Arnold. Lester H. Binnie's Early Brethren Families of the Eel River Congregation says that Jacob Ohmart married a Louisa Arnold, and he lists as a
daughter of Adam Ohmart the Louisa Ohmart who married Moses Arnold. He bases this on the fact that Moses Arnold's wife is buried in the same cemetery row as Adam's family, between his sons Jacob and Levi (both of whom predeceased her), right
where she would be in the birth order. However, she does not appear with the Adam Ohmart family on any of the census listings. And others such as Verle Ohmart and Leona Betteridge list the marriage of Jacob Ohmart to "Louisa Howard". I strongly
suspect that Jacob's widow later married Moses Arnold. It would not seem too unusual to bury her next to her first husband, even though she was already remarried when she died. (Preceding comment written in 1990. In 1993, I went to Wabash to
consult death and marriage records, and found that the death certificate of Robert Arnold lists his parents as Moses Arnold & Louisa Howard, confirming my earlier hypothesis.)

In the 1850 census (see Notes for Robert Howard), Louisa's place of birth is given as Ohio. But the wife of Jacob Ohmart in the 1860 census and the wife of Moses Arnold in the 1870 census both give their place of birth as Virginia.

Marriage of Daniel Nehr to Catherine Frantz listed on page 15, Vol. 2, of Early Marriage Bonds of Ohio. Original record in Clark County Probate Court marriages Book 3, page 241.

(Could not find a record of his marriage to Catherine Miller in the Clark County marriage bonds books, nor a record of his burial in the Dore M. Frantz book, though both wives were listed.)

This family listed in the 1850 census of Clark County, German twp, page 39, enumerated Oct 10, as family #558: Daniel Neher, 25, OH; Catherine, 22, OH. (This would be his second wife, Catherine Miller, as Catherine Frantz died in 1849.)

[NI4315] [ae19.FTW]

Listed on p. 21 of the Dore M. Frantz Burials. Notes identify her as "wife of Daniel Neher, son of Henry and Susanna Neher". Entry includes dates of birth and death as 13 Dec 1823-19 Aug 1849. The dates on this page were mostly added by D.M.
Frantz, since most of the stones in the row are boulders, either unmarked or marked only by a name. The date of death is probably wrong, since Daniel Neher married Catherine Frantz in 1848. I am going to enter her date of death as 19 Aug 1847,
but I would append a question mark if PAF accepted that (or any other syntax for probable/questionable/under doubt.)

Wabash Co. Marriage License Bk B, p. 93, license issued for Levi Ohmart & Rebecca Arter, 29 Sep 1857, returned 1 Oct 1857.

Another child of Levi & Sarah died as an infant and was buried in Cripe Cemetery. (It would be interesting to find out where Levi and Sarah's orphaned children were raised, since Sarah died in 1870 and Levi in 1872, when the oldest was 7 years
old.)

Levi is listed alone in the 1870 census of Pleasant twp, Wabash Co, IN, on p. 13, enumerated 5 Aug, as household #93, next door to that of his brother Samuel. His age appears to say 30, but the microfilm is very faint, so perhaps it says 36.
Place of birth is given as Oh, occupation as farmer. There is an X in the "widowed within the year" column.

Levi and Rebecca are possibly the parents of the Ellen Ohmart, age 10, living with the family of Levi's parents in the 1870 census.

Date of birth inferred from 1850 census. If my interpretation is correct, he appears both with his father-in-law's family on August 24th, and with his father's family on August 20th (marriage was Aug 18th, unless that is just a bond date.)
Another possibility is that there were two Jacob Frantz's born in 1828 in Clark County.

1870 census of Pleasant twp,Wabash County, IN, on p. 27, enumerated 9 Aug, lists this family (#200) as: Ohmart, Joseph, 30, b. OH; Nancy, 27, b. OH; Lloyd B., 6, b. IN; Charlie, 3, b. IN; Lorain, 11, b. IN. "Lorain" is a male, almost surely
Loren (#216), the son of Joseph's brother Levi and his first wife Rebecca Harter.

1880 census of Pleasant twp, enumerator's district #181, Wabash County, Indiana, lists this family (#213) as: Ohmart, Joseph, 40, b. OH (VA VA); N. J., 37, b. OH (VA VA); Loyal, 16, b. IN; Charles, 12, b. IN, Shock, Lela A. 19, servant.

1900 census of Pleasant twp, enumerator's district #127, Wabash Co., Indiana, lists this family (#233) as: Ohmart, Joseph C., Feb 1840, 60; Nancy J., Oct 1842, 57. The couple had been married 38 years, with 2 children, both living. They were
both born in Ohio, and all their parents born in Virginia.

Joseph's gravestone says 1840-1911 (see p. 54 of Lester Binnie's Cemetery Records of Paw Paw and Pleasant Townships, Wabash Co., IN.)

George Heeter's Chart of Ohmart Genealogy also includes with this family "Samuel b. 1870 adopted". However, note that no Samuel appears with the family in the 1870 or 1880 censuses. Perhaps this is an error with its roots in Joseph's rearing of
his nephew Loren (son of Levi d. 1872.) If they did raise a Samuel, perhaps he also was a son of Levi, by his second wife Sarah Click Baird (d. 1870)? But if so, then he would have to be a twin of Simon, born Jan 1870. What I really need to do
is check obituaries, wills, and guardianship records.

Keith C. Rarick shows Catherine Summers as b. 1755 in Cambria Co., PA. The LDS Ancestral file shows her as b. 1755 "of Cambria, Somerset Co., Pennsylvania" at the time of her marriage (not necessarily born there.) This should be taken as
referring to what is now Cambria Co., as Cambria was formed in 1804 from parts of Bedford, Somerset, and Huntingdon counties. Somerset Co. was formed in 1795 from part of Bedford Co. Huntingdon Co. was formed in 1781, also from part of Bedford
Co. Bedford Co. was formed in 1771 from part of Cumberland Co. Cumberland was formed in 1750 from Lancaster Co., so what is now Cambria Co. would have been in 1755 part of Cumberland Co., and in 1774 part of Bedford Co.

Date of death for Moses Arnold from Cinnet's application for a marriage licence to Moses Hoover. There is no burial listed for Moses Arnold in Lester Binnie's books of Wabash & Kosciusko Co. cemetery records. Nor was his death registered with
the Wabash Co. health department. (Death records start in 1887.) He must have died elsewhere.

Her obituary and death certificate have her first name spelled as "Opal", but she and her children always spelled it as "Ople." I have copies of several letters, etc., in which she signed her name "Ople." It also appears that way on her
marriage license and birth certificate. Someone responsible for the death records and newspaper notices may have "corrected" the spelling of her name to match that of the gemstone.

Ople's first child was by Elmer Robinson, but they were not married, so I have entered Elmer as the second "spouse" in order that Charles rather than Elmer will show up on the Spouse space when Ople is listed in her parents' family group chart.
(I wish PAF had a way to enter liaisons which produce a child without labelling the parents as Husband and Wife. I also wish that all the spouses, and only true spouses, were listed on the parent's family group sheet, because often the first
one is not the most relevant one.)

1850 Census of Clark County, Oh, Pike twp, p. 134-135, enumerated Aug 31, lists this family as #1143: Robert Howard, 50, NJ; Barbara ", ", Penn; John Howard, 20, "; Louisa ", 16, Oh; Benjamin ", 13, "; Sarah ", 12, "; Amanda ", 10, "; Mary ",
7, "; Nancy J. ", 7 "; Irmina Howard, 4, Oh. There are curly brackets connecting Mary and Nancy, presumably a notation for twins. (I've shown where the dittos are, rather than the inferred data, partly because based on what I know about other
families, this census taker seems to have often left out a notation of a new value, causing the dittos to inherit the wrong meaning. Page break between Nancy & Irmina, which is why the surname is repeated there. Unknown why it is for John.) If
their tombstones are correct, the ages for Robert & Barbara should really be 45 and 44. The place of birth for Louisa differs from that she gives in 1860 and 1870.

Another possible dau is Margaret Howard m. James McMahan 4 May 1850 in Clark Co. Should check 1840 census to see how many daughters are listed.

Family moved from Clark Co. OH to Wabash Co., IN between 1850 and 1860.

Lester Binnie's Cemetery Records for PawPaw and Pleasant Townships lists on p. 6, near the beginning of Row 8 in Cripe Cemetery, "Robert Howard, died 1 Nov 1882, age 77 yrs 2 mo 2 d" From this I have inferred a birthdate of 30 Aug 1805.

Lester Binnie's Cemetery Records for PawPaw and Pleasant Townships lists on p. 6, near the beginning of Row 8 in Cripe Cemetery, "Barbary wife of Robert Howard, died 9 June 1873, age 66 yrs 5 mo 22 d", which would imply a birthdate of 18 Dec
1806. That is, however, suspiciously close to that recorded for her sister, Sarah (Sally). Lorraine Frantz Edwards, citing the original of the Dore M. Frantz manuscript (not the Burials excerpts I have) gives Barbara's date of birth as 22 Dec
1811, and her date of death as 9 June 1878. The data that Barbara d/o Peter Frantz and Catherine Gerst married Robert Howard is from the family group sheet for Peter Frantz on p. 28 of Our Garst Family.

May be the John Howard, died 6 July 1894, age 66-0-6, implying a birthdate of 30 June 1828, who is listed on page 90 of Lester Binnie's Cemetery Records of PawPaw and Pleasant Townships, buried in South Pleasant Cemetery, next to two wives,
Delilah died 11 June 1863 age 29-8-13, and Drucilla, 1846-1916. But I have no direct evidence for this.

Most information on this family from p. 95 of Lester Binnie's The German Baptist Arnolds. Binnie lists Christian & Mary as being buried in the Arnold Cemetery in Perry twp, while p. 39 of the Dore M. Frantz Burials record lists them as being
buried in Bear Creek Cemetery, Madison twp. (Both records list the same dates.) Until I can check this directly, I am using Lester's data, as he is usually very meticulous, whereas the Dore M. Frantz notes were edited after his death, and there
were many cases where it was not clear which notes were for which cemetery.

Date of birth from Lester Binnie's Early Brethren Families of the Eel River Congregation book; it may be an over-inference from her tombstone, which says she died 24 Aug 1861, age 20 years. But it does not say "0 months, 0 days". On the other
hand, maybe Lester also had other independent evidence as to her birthdate.

According to Montgomery County marriage records, a Barbara Arnold married a John Minick on Dec 19, 1839. I suspect it is this Barbara, since in 1850 there is a Susanna Minick, listed as age 12, living with Barbara's widowed mother and siblings.
Also Lindsay Brien's Miami Valley Genealogies, Vol. 4, p. 92, in an article on the Minnich family, says that John Minnich married Barbara Arnold, b. Sept. 5, 1819; daughter of John and Barbara Arnold." But Lester Binnie in The German Baptist
Arnolds lists Barbara dau. of John & Barbara as b. 21 Sep 1819 and as marrying a Troxel, first name unknown. I am going on Lindsay Brien's identification for now.

Stone in Landis Cem. says "Barbara wife of John Minnich, 1819-1898"

According to Lester Binnie's list, which relies on Oren Frazee, Samuel possibly moved to Kansas. Fellowship of Brethren Genealogists newsletter, Vol.2, p.31, mentions a Samuel Arnold member of the Slate Creek Church of the Brethren in Conway

Probably either the Henry Arnold who married Matilda Emrick on 4 May 1851, or else the Henry Arnold who married Elizabeth Herring on 5 June 1851, both in Montgomery Co. (The first seems more likely since Henry's sister Frances married George
Emrick.) I should check the 1860 census for Montgomery and Preble Co., and see which Henry is the right age.

[NI4558] [ae19.FTW]

Probably the Noah Arnold who married Susannah Weaver on 15 Apr 1851 in Montgomery Co.

Probably the Noah Arnold listed in the Preble Co. death records, Book 1, p. 67, died 6 Sep 1878 at age 48 years, 18 days, which would imply a birth of 19 Aug 1830, married, laborer, born Montgomery Co., died Eldorado, Preble Co., cause of death
brain fever. This conflicts with the birthdate of 9 Aug 1831 as given in Binnie's The German Baptist Arnolds, family group for John Arnold and Barbara Friend primarily based on records of Owen Frazee, but it is close enough that the differences
could easily be an error in either Frazee's records or the death record. And there does not seem to be any other Noah Arnold in Montgomery or Preble Co. of similar age. I should check the 1870 census of Preble Co.

initials, so I copied the gender as well. Note that the child recorded as "F." must be Christina. This census is very faint, so it is possible that I misread a "C" as an "F", but it looked like the F's in the gender column.

1880 census of Pleasant twp, Wabash Co., Indiana, recorded June 16, lists this family (#332 on page 33) as: Blocher, And., 36, OH (PA PA); Sarah, 36, IN (VA OH); Daniel, 13; Christina, 12; Samuel, 11; John, 9; Amos, 8; Elis, 6; all children
born in Indiana.

According to Lester Binnie's Early Brethren Families in the Eel River Congregation, this family lived north of Long Lake, Indiana for several years "and may have moved to North Dakota. No cemetery records for Sarah or Andrew found in Wabash
Co." They really moved to Illinois. The exact dates and place of death are from Leona Betteridge of Tacoma, Washington.

When I talked with him in 1975, Walter Figert, the grandson of this immigrant Figert, mentioned as his aunts and uncles on the Figert side: John, Jacob, Elizabeth, Mary and Adam. He did not give any birthdates or even birth order.

Pearl (Grisso) Figert, the wife of Walter Figert, said in 1975 when I interviewed her on the family tree that Walter's grandfather was named John, and that his wife was Becky Frantz, the sister of John Grisso's wife Sally Frantz. However, no
other records confirm this, and I now feel she was in error. For one thing, there is no record of any Rebecca or Becky Frantz born to Sally's father, Daniel Frantz. For another thing, the only Figert family in the 1840 and 1850 censuses of
Tuscarawas County, Ohio with children which matches the list of names above is: 1840 Census, Jefferson twp, page 309: Figart, Peter: males: 2 under 5, 1 20-30. females: 1 under 5, 1 20-30. 1850 Census, Jefferson twp, pages 119-120, taken Sept
26, in family #801: Figart, Peter, 45 (farmer); Mary A., 37; Jacob, 14; Peter, 12; Mary, 9; Margaret, 7; John, 5; Catherine 3; Christian, 3; Charles, 1; Adam 1/12. Peter Sr., Mary, and Jacob are listed as born in Germany, and the others are
listed as born in Ohio. Since Walter's father Peter's birthdate is known to be 2 Oct 1838, and his uncle Jacob's is known to be 18 Sep 1836 (both dates from their gravestones), the match with the ages of Peter and Jacob above, as well as the
appearance of Mary, John and Adam, is too close to be coincidental. (The place of birth for Jacob does not match that he gives as an adult in the Indiana censuses. However, if he was under 2 when the family immigrated, he may have grown up
thinking he was born in Ohio.) Note that the daughter under 5 in the 1840 census is not living with the family in the 1850 census.

Kirchenbuch (1849-1890) of the German United Evangelical Lutheran and German Reformed Zions Congregation on the Upper Stone Creek, Jefferson twp, Tuscarawas Co., Ohio, p. 82, under deaths, lists Feigert, Peter, b. 18 Sep 1805, d. 25 Mar 1884,

This is a placekeeper for the daughter listed as "under 5" in the 1840 census. If the census was correct, then she would be born in the last half of 1835 (since her brother Jacob was born in Sep 1836.)

Cemetery Book III published by the Tuscarawas County Genealogical Society lists on p. 32 in Stone Creek Cemetery, "Figert, Anna Mary, died 19 Feb 1872, age 58y 10m 5d." The birthdate of 15 Apr 1813 is inferred from the age at death, and is
consistent with census readings.

This family appears in the 1840 census of Tuscarawas County, Jefferson twp, page 308, as: Frederick Figart: males: 2 5-10, 1 10-15, 1 30-40; females: 2 under 5, 1 5-10, 1 30-40.

This family appears in the 1850 census of Tuscarawas Co., Jefferson twp, on page 107, taken Sept 18, as family 714: Frederick Figard, 48, Germany (farmer); Margaret, 47, Germany; Margaret, 17, Germany; Phillipena, 12, OH; Catharine, 10, OH.
Also, on page 98 of the same census, in Bucks twp, taken Sep 10, is Jacob Figard, 19, blacksmith, born Germany, living with the family of Adam Switzer, blacksmith. This Jacob is likely to be one of the 2 sons of Frederick who were age 5 to 10
in the 1840 census. I do not know what became of the other 2 sons. They may have died young, or they may have been living out of Tuscarawas County in 1850.

Kirchenbuch for St. Peter's Reformed Lutheran Church in Tuscarawas Co, Ohio, translated and transcribed by Maxine Renner Eberle - 1981, in the library of the Tuscarawas County Genealogical Society, lists on p. 55, the marriage of Christian
Denzer and Margaretha Feigert, 19 Jan 1854. This marriage is also in an IGI entry, batch 7916501, sheet 95, microfilm 1260554. I'm not actually sure it is the same Margaret Figart who is Frederick's daughter, but am assuming so on the basis
that she was the only single Margaret Figert/Figart in Tuscarawas County in the 1850 census who would be of marriageable age (Peter's daughter would only be 11 in 1854.) Also, the marriage was in the same church as that of Frederick's son
Jacob.

Possible surname of Garber, possibly even the same person as Magdalena (Garver) (Minnich) Frantz, #258. Some sources list Michael Minnick's wife as being Magdalena, the daughter of John Garber and Barbara Zook. But it is definite from the will
of Elder John Garber that his daughter Magdalene was married to Peter Minnich, Sr. in 1813. I have not seen any primary sources giving a name for Michael Minnich's wife, and it seems more likely to me that someone mistook him with Peter Minnich
than that both of them married women of the name of Magdalena Garber.

[NI4778] [ae19.FTW]

Peter is listed as co-executor in the will of his father-in-law Elder John Garber (#864). But he apparently died about the same time as John Garber, since Peter's own will was written 8 Jan 1814 and recorded 3 June 1814. It lists his wife
Magdalene and his children, stated as being from eldest to youngest, as Peter, Mary, John, Magdalene, and Michael, and gives his executors as his son Peter Jr. and his son-in-law John Simmons. Witnesses were Phillip Minnich, Nathaniel Williams,
and Phillip Ziegler. The first marriage to an unknown wife is conjectured on the basis that Magdalena the daughter of John Garber was too young to have adult children in 1814 (she would have been 29), and Peter Jr. was old enough to be an
executor and Mary was old enough to be married. I do not yet have an indication of the ages of Peter's children John, Magdalene, and Michael, so they may have been children of Magdalene. The marriage date of "ca 1802" is from an article by Don
Bowman on p. 80, FoBG Newsletter, V. 25, No. 4, Winter 93-94

[NI4779] [ae19.FTW]

The will of Henry Zook of Chester Co., PA, written in 1820, names as co-executor his grandson Henry Garber. Thus, Henry was probably at least 18 by then, since I do not think a minor can be the executor of a will.

Marriage date of 28 Aug 1859 for Jacob Hay and Susannah Frantz is from Kosciusko Co. marriage records. Marriage date for Jacob Hay and Elizabeth Billmier is from Montgomery Co. marriage records.

Profile of the Jacob Hay family is on p. 67 of Early Brethren Families of the Eel River congregation. There are 10 children in the family, all by his first wife Elizabeth. I have only entered those who connect with my relatives somehow.

Lela Shoup's submission for the Nicholas Frantz family on p. 118 of Early Clark County Families Vol. II gives a birthdate for Jacob Hay of 19 Aug 1808. But his gravestone says that he died "24 Aug 1880, aged 72 y 5 m 16 d", from which I have
calculated a birthdate of 8 Mar 1808. Should check census and other records.

Marriage of Catherine Frantz & John Frantz in Clark County Marriage Records. Also IGI, batch M514401, sheet 3140.

The attribution of John L. Frantz, husband of Catherine Frantz, to the family of Benjamin Frantz and Elizabeth Flory, is based on Lela Shoup's submission to Early Clark County Families, Vol. II, page 118, on the Nicholas Frantz/Catherine Crist
family. I find it curious that Benjamin would have one son named John and another named Jonathan, but perhaps they were not considered as closely equivalent then as they are now.

Lester Binnie's cemetery records say that Jacob's gravestone reads "died 31 June 1851, age 21 days". June, however, does not have 31 days. The most likely misreading due to a worn stone seems to be misreading a 2 as a 3. Misreading a 0 as a 1
does not seem likely. Of course, the people responsible for the inscription could have thought June had 31 days, so maybe it should be July 1!

Dates of birth and death of David Neff and Susan Wrightsman from Verle Ohmart's 5-generation chart. It does not list places for events, but according to his family group for their daughter Lydia and her husband Marion Ohmart, their wedding took
place at David Neff's home near Girard, Macoupin Co., Illinois. So that is a good guess for where David and Susan died. Also, Lydia is said to have been born in Roanoke Co., VA, so David and Lydia may have married there.

Page 6 of Lester Binnie's Cemetery Records of Paw Paw and Pleasant Townships, Wabash County, Indiana lists Rebecca's tombstone inscription as died 18 Jan 1903, age 66-2-9.

Lela Shoup's submission on the Nicholas Frantz family on page 118 of Vol. II, Early Clark County families gives Rebecca's date of birth as 9 Nov 1837. This is probably due to a mistranscription at some point, since other records agree on the
1836 date.

Pearl, 2, b. Ind, Adam, 26, (brother, also blacksmith), b. Oh. The place of birth is not given for Mollie's parents; for Jacob & Adam's parents it is listed as "Foreign". If I am correct in identifying this Jacob with the son of Peter Figert of
Tuscarawas County, then the age for Adam is wrong, he was really 29.

Marvin Nelson's "The Grisso Family" gives Noah's date of birth as 30 May 1881. Josephus Edward Barnhart in his Barnhart Family Record (compiled 1925) gives it as 21 Mar 1880. Since Josephus (1862-1937) lived in the same town as Noah and was his

The family of Jonathan Garber and Sarah Rife is profiled on p. 141 of The Garber Historical and Genealogical Record, Vol. III. The list includes 17 children, many of whom have no dates given, but those with dates of birth span the period of
1838-1860. This seems a very odd range of childbearing years for a mother born in January 1808, so I am not convinced that they are all properly attributed to this family. Their descendents are covered on pages 141-150, which includes an insert
of pages 141-B through 141-H on the descendents of their son Daniel.

The date of birth which I have listed for Jonathan is calculated by subtracting an age at death of 76 yrs 2 months 28 days from his date of death, both probably from a cemetery inscription.

The census listings for Magdalena's children variously list the state of their mother's birth as Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. (See notes for her sons and sons-in-law, particularly the Emmanuel Grisso/Elizabeth Frantz
family, with whom she was living at the time of the 1850 census.) The birth place of Salem, Botetourt Co., VA is from various submissions to Early Clark County Families, and probably based on the residence of John Garber in the 1780's.

Listed on page 15 of the Dore M. Frantz burials document. Birth and death dates are from the gravestone. Date of birth may be 1789 instead of 1784 if her age is correct in the 1850 census (perhaps a 9 was misread as a 4 on the stone.)

Family group for Daniel Frantz in Early Clark County Families, Vol. 1, p. 167, submitted by Jess W. Monteith lists John Garber and Barbara Zook as the parents of Magdalena (Garver) (Minnick) Frantz, and says Magdalena was the widow of Peter
Minnich. Certainly from primary sources the Magdalena Garber who was the daughter of Elder John Garber was married to Peter Minnick, Sr. in Dec 1813 when John Garber made his will. But several other sources (all secondary) list the Magdalena
who married Daniel Frantz as being the widow of Michael Minnick. It could be that one Magdalene Garber, daughter of Elder John Garber, married Peter Minnick, Sr., and another Magdalena Garver, parents unknown, married Michael Minnick, both
families settling in Clark Co., Ohio, and they have been confused. Another possibility is that Michael Minnick's wife was not really named Magdalena Garver/Garber.

Either these are children of a very young marriage, or they were not his children. If the ultimate source was a census listing, as is probable from the "ca 18xx" birthdates, then they could be stepchildren.

Brian Wertz of Boise, ID, citing a "Condensed Wertz Genealogy", gives John and Anna's marriage date as 16 Mar 1812. My database, for which I did not record the source, listed their marriage date as 26 Mar 1812. Possibly it represents a typo, or
it may be the difference between a date based on a marriage bond, and one based on a minister's return or a Bible record. When such discrepancies arise, the later date is more often correct, so I will use that until I get more definitive
information on the original sources.

Hannah may be the daughter of Aaron Arnold (1841-1922), son of Henry H. Arnold and Martha Kiser, based on the names of her children. Aaron is known to have a son named Calvin, and his son Charles Franklin has a son named Esta, and Lester
Binnie's The German Baptist Arnolds suggests that Aaron had several chidren other than the six listed in Binnie's book. But he did not marry Amanda Isenbarger until 1863, so if so Hannah is a daughter of Aaron, she is either by an earlier
marriage, or her birthdate is wrong. (The other 5 sons of Henry H. Arnold appear to be too young to have a daughter born in 1857.)

Lindsey Brien (p.62, Vol. 4, Miami Valley Genealogies), lists this Henry Frantz as a son of Michael and Magdalena (Zug) Frantz, but the Montgomery Co. history she cites describes Henry as a son of a Christian Frantz who moved from Berks Co.,
Penn. to Virginia, four sons of this Christian, namely, Michael, John, Christian, and this Henry, moving to Montgomery Co. It seems to me likely that Lindsay is equating the Christian Frantz Sr. of the Montgomery Co. history with Elder
Christian Frantz Sr. of Clark Co., and noting that Christian b. 1761 could not have a son b. 1773, has elevated Henry to a brother. But there were some Christian Frantz families who went from Berks Co. PA to Botetourt Co. VA and from there to
Ohio who were not descended from Michael Frantz Sr. of Lancaster Co., but rather from his brothers Christian and Baltzar. It is likely that the Frantz brothers who settled in Montgomery Co. were descended from these Berks Co. Frantzes. Another
possibility is that the Berks Co. reference is incorrect, and the Montgomery Co. Frantz families are descended from either John or Abraham, the sons of Michael Frantz & Magdalena Zug for whom I do not have any descendent information.

The marriage of George Brubaker and Kalista Nevius is an LDS IGI submission, source batch 5002610, sheet 34. The same batch gave Jacob Brubaker and Lydia Daniel as the parents of that George Brubaker, but according to Ken Fawley (and he has
visited the cemetery), George the son of Jacob and Lydia is buried with his parents in South Whitley, along with his brothers Henry and John, the three of them having died in 1865 in a Union army camp of the measles. So this George is a
placekeeper for the husband of Kalista Nevius, and the marriage is hereby unlinked from my family tree. I'm leaving it around rather than deleting it, in case another connection turns up.

Article on the descendents of "Michael Frantz III", by Elizabeth Miller Lane, on pp. 44-48 of the Fellowship of Brethren Genealogists Newsletter, Vol. 22, No. 3, Fall 1990. The article cites inscriptions of birthdates for Michael, his wife
"Marian Elizabeth" and his 9 children from a family bible written in German by Michael Frantz, now in the possession of his great-great-granddaughter, Agnes Kessler, LaFontaine, IN. Although it has a great deal on his descendents, it does not
have any marriage information for Michael other than the given names of his first wife. Mrs. Lane's article, as well as Our Garst Family, refers to this Michael as "Michael Frantz III", and identifies him with the Michael son of Michael Frantz

date of 10 Jan 1835. May Frost's "Garst, Sherfey, Graybill genealogies & Peffley supplement" (to her earlier Peffley genealogy) has his date and place of death as 18 Jan 1835, South Bend, Indiana, and the 1951 A.G. Schull pedigree has 1835 (no
day & month) for the death date, in South Bend, Indiana. The 3 Sep 1838 date is probably for a different Abraham Garst.

Theobald Gerst and his wife Magdalena Catherina arrived in Philadelphia in Aug 1750 on the ship "Isaac", with all of their children except John Nicholas, who had arrived in 1749, and whom they joined in Bethel twp, Lancaster Co, PA.

William T. Garst's "Our Garst Family in America", pp.15-16. Mr. Garst's sources for this family were the Pennsylvania Archives (passenger lists), and Theobald Gerst's will, dated 22 Apr 1770 (Lancaster Co., PA will book A, Vol 1, page 245),
entered probate 13 June 1770. The will lists his wife Magdalena Catherina, sons John Nickel and Theobald, and his daughters Engelina, Magdalena, Catherina, Margaretha, and Elisabeth.

The Kirchenbuch of the Evangelical Reformed Church of Sembach, Pfalz, Bayern (Bavaria), LDS FHL microfilm #193169, extracted into the IGI as batches C/M997251, records on p. 51B, the marriage of Theobald Gerst, son of Michael Gerst, to
Catherina Bckin, daughter of Johannes Bckin. (Bckin is indexed as Bueckin in the IGI.) I have examined this microfilm. All birth and christening dates for the children of Theobald and Catherina are from it. I list in the child's Notes only
the page and the way the names were entered. (The original pages are numbered only on the upper right of each pair of facing pages. I have appended A to refer to the lefthand page and B for the righthand page.) All the christening records also
list godparents, most of whom I have not entered into my notes (the German text is hard to read.) Sembach (now spelled Sambach) is a village about 6 km southwest of Bamburg.

IGI also indexes a 3-page PAF family group record for Theobald Gerst & Magdelena Catharina Bueckin, in batch 5001681 (pages 42 through 44), on LDS FHL microfilm #1396477, submitted by Betty Farnsworth, 10315 South 1540 West, Jordan, UT 84065.
She, in turn, seems to have relied heavily on the IGI extractions cited above, but apparently did not go to the original as her submission does not include birth dates or the fathers of Theobald & Catherina. Her family group record is my source
for the birth of Theobald Gerst in 1702 in Schwenkhausen. I do not know her source for this place of birth, and considering that it does not have any more than the same year that William T. Garst used in his guestimate, it does not seem too
likely that she found a birth record. The IGI for Germany does not list any extraction record for Theobald's birth.

[NI5497] [ae19.FTW]

Montgomery Co. Marriage Records, Book B, lists marriage of John Zook & Sarah Kessler on 6 Aug 1835.

[NI5499] [ae19.FTW]

Full name was actually Maria Magdalena Catharina Bckin, but if I were to put that, PAF would abbreviate it to Maria M. C. Bckin in most output, which would be confusing since she was known as either Magdalena Catherina or just Catharina (see
baptismal records of her children.)

Montgomery Co. Marriage Records, Book B, lists marriage of Michael Flory & Eva Zook on 24 Aug 1834.

[NI5521] [ae19.FTW]

Christening p. 13B (see Notes for her father) as Engel d/o Theobald Gerst & his wife Maria Catharina. Her father's will refers to her once as Engelina and once as Angelina, and on her marriage record her name is given as Maria Engel Gerst. For
a while I had her name entered as Maria Engelina, and probably she thought of her baptismal name as being Maria Engel, but since the christening record doesn't have it that way, and I would rather have her name show up in short fields as
Engelina rather than Maria E, I am leaving off the Maria.

Engelina was disinherited in her father's will, and her share split between her children ("my grandchildren Michael Weidner and Catherina Weidner shall have their Mother's share. But their Mother Angelina shall have not a farthing of it in her
hands.") In his Our Garst Family book, William T. Garst writes "It seems that this couple left Pennsylvania for another province before 1770, leaving their two children behind." But he does not present any evidence for this other than the will
itself, and to me it seems from the wording just as likely that Engelina was still in Pennsylvania, otherwise, why would the will have had to emphasize that she get not a farthing of her children's inheritance in her hands? (At the time of the
will, Michael Weidner was 14 and Catherina was almost 13. In fact, the lack of any younger children suggests that Ludwig may have died much earlier.)

Profile of this family on pp. 133-134 of the Harry D. Zook genealogy.

[NI5527] [ae19.FTW]

Arrived in Philadelphia on Sept 27, 1727, on the ship James Goodwill. His name appears right after that of Ulrich Zug on the captain's list and the oath of allegiance. By tradition they were brothers, but there is no evidence other than their
travelling together.

This is just a placekeeper to tie the immigrants Ulrich and Peter Zug together.

[NI5530] [ae19.FTW]

[NI5539] [ae19.FTW]

Jacob Zug's will, written 24 Dec 1803, lists his daughter "Margaret Creemer" as deceased, and gives Margaret's share of 10 pounds to his son-in-law John Creemer. His daughter Mary Creemer also receives 10 pounds. (See pp 127-128 of the Harry D.
Zook genealogy for details.)

[NI5540] [ae19.FTW]

Caty Zug Friend was living at the time of her father's death, but deceased by the time his estate was settled in 1832. Her children and grandchildren received her share.

[NI5541] [ae19.FTW]

Daniel and Susannah Stephens sold their land in Washington Co., PA (adjacent to that of Susannah's brother Jacob) on 28 Apr 1798 and there is no further mention of them in the county. Susannah Stephens was mentioned in the will of her father in
Dec 1803, but was not mentioned in the estate settlement in 1832. As the portions of other deceased children went to their heirs, it is likely that either she had no children, or that they were not located.

[NI5543] [ae19.FTW]

Christening p. 20A (see Notes for her father) as Maria Catharina d/o Theobald Gerst & his wife Magdalena Catharina.

[NI5552] [ae19.FTW]

This individual is a placekeeper to hold together Friend individuals whose parents I do not know.

[NI5554] [ae19.FTW]

Christening p. 22B (see Notes for her father) as Hetwig Margaretha d/o Johann Theobald Gerst & his wife Maria Magdalena. Her father's brother Friederich and his wife, also named Hetwig Margaretha, stood godparents. Note that she is the only
daughter of Theobald Gerst whose baptismal name does not begin with Maria, and that 5 months before she was born, Freiderich and Hetwig had a son whom they named Johan Theobald, for whom Theobald and Magdalena Catherina were godparents. I can
just imagine two sisters-in-law, pregnant at the same time, agreeing to be godparents to each others children.

[NI5556] [ae19.FTW]

Records of Sembach Reformed Church (see Notes for his brother Theobald) lists on p. 46B the marriage of Johan Friederich son of Michael Gerste to Hedwig Margaretha daughter of Andrea Tomy on 10 Sep 1737.

This may be the Friederich Gerst who travelled to America with Theobald Gerst (see his Notes) and took the oath of allegiance at the same time. On the other hand, that may have been Theobald's son, who would have been 16 at the time.

[NI5557] [ae19.FTW]

See p. 31 of Binnie's "Early Brethren Families of the Eel River Congregation." In Montgomery Co., Daniel was known as Daniel Cripe Jr. to distinguish him from his father, but after he moved to Wabash Co., Indiana, in 1840, he was known as
Daniel Cripe Sr., and his son was referred to as Daniel Cripe Jr.

Buried in the Old Cripe Cemetery in Pleasant twp, his stone says Daniel Cripe died May 22, 1865, age 79 yrs 10 mos 10 days.

pp. 1- 8, The German Baptist Arnolds. Most early data from German records on LDS microfilms, most later data from Maryland and Pennsylvania land records. No will found. List of children is probably not complete. Records of the Evangelical
Lutheran Church in Frederick Co., MD, list George Arnold and wife Anna Maria as godparents at the baptism of Johannes, son of Ludwig Kreamer, 17 Oct 1743. On this basis, Lester Binnie speculates that a daughter of Johann George "appears to have
married Ludwig Kreamer." I do not, however, think it likely that Johann & Maria had a daughter old enough to be having a baby in 1743, as the early years of their marriage are pretty filled up with known sons, 1730 being the earliest year that
another child could squeeze in.

The name of Madison Grisso also appears in various records as Mathias, Matison, Mattison, and Matterson. In addition, the History of Roanoke County, Virginia lists a son of Jacob Grisso, Sr. named "Matthew", apparently referring to Madison. The
spelling Madison is chosen for this database because that is how it is spelled in the settlement of his father-in-law's estate. The paper work was prepared by a prominent and well educated neighbor who knew the Grisso family well. According to
Carridon Grisso, a well respected neighbor of Jacob Grisso was named Madison Pitzer, and it is likely that young Madison was named after him. As further corroboration of the spelling, note that Madison's younger brother John named his third son
James Madison Grisso, and Madison's sister Sarah also named her first son James Madison, probably following the tradition of naming a son after one's two eldest brothers.

Madison left Virginia between 1838 and 1840, settling in Tennessee. He appears in the 1840 census of Hamilton Co., Tennessee as "Mathias". Around 1844/45 he moved on to Fulton County, Arkansas where he lived for the rest of his life. He is
listed there in the 1850 and 1860 census, and his widow Sarah is listed there in 1870 and 1880.

This is a placekeeper for the father of Henry Arnold Sr., of whom nothing is known. It is only a guess that he is descended from Johan George Arnold, based simply on J.G.A. being the immigrant ancestor of ALL the German Baptist Arnolds for whom
the immigrant ancestor IS known. Henry could not be a son of Samuel, Andrew, or John, as their children are known from will and estate records. He could conceivably be a son of Daniel, as there is no complete record of Daniel's children, and
there is a gap in the birth years of his known children around the period that Henry was probably born, but it is not very likely as Henry had no sons or grandsons named Daniel, and Daniel's known children did not name any sons Henry. What is
more likely is that Johann George may have had a son named Joseph, Jacob, Abraham or Isaac who could be the father of Henry. (These names are all common as sons or grandsons of Henry as well as of known grandsons and great-grandsons of Johan
George.) Or possibly they aren't related at all. I am tying them together only to make it easier to traverse the tree in PAF.

[NI5739] [ae19.FTW]

Harry D. Zook's genealogy lists Kitty's husband's name as "Benjamin G.E.O. Pettit". I can't help wondering if this is a misinterpretation of some record and it really represents a middle name of George, though.

1820 Census of Franklin Co., Ky, lists on p. 112 an entry that could be Benj. Pettit. But it is indexed as Benj. Penn, which it could also be. Or even Perrin. (There is no Benjamin Pettit or Penn or any similar name in the 1810 or 1830
censuses of Franklin Co.) This census page is so faint that the tops of all the lowercase letters are invisible, and the handwriting is such that the bottoms of many letters are indistinguishable. I cannot really tell which columns are marked.
It seems to be in the sixth and seventh columns, which would be 1 m > 45 and 1 f < 10, but that doesn't seem like a very probable combination, so I may be misreading it.

This family entered into my Pettit database as well as this one.

The Kentucky Gazette (Lexington newspaper), 11 Feb 1797, printed a notice asking "David Zuck, who lately moved from near mouth of Brackin Creek in Mason Co." to apply to Robert Elliot & Co. in Lexington.

David Zook was taxable in Franklin Co., KY, in 1801 and 1804. In 1805 he and his son Solomon are taxable in adjacent Henry Co. on Six-Mile Creek. Bought $250 acres there in June 1806 for 5 shillings. His estate was appraised on 18 June 1810,
valued at $383.

Franklin Co., KY marriage records list marriage of Robert Hatton and Polly Zook on 14 May 1808, and marriage of Aaron Miller and Polly Zook on 7 May 1810. (From a published index; I am not sure if this is a bond or a marriage return.) Since
David Zook's widow Polly is still listed as Polly Zook in the 1820 census, and there were no other Zook families in Kentucky at this time, both of these Pollys must be David's daughter. (Harry D. Zook, in his family group for David Zook, lists
them both as such.) But it is unusual for a remarried woman to be listed in a marriage record by her maiden name. Also, Robert Hatton appears in the 1810 census of Franklin Co., as a single householder (1 m 26-45). Perhaps the first "marriage"
represents only a broken engagement?

1830 census of Franklin Co., Ky, lists on p. 147: Jacob Zook, 1 m < 5, 2 m 5-9, 1 m 40-49, 1 f < 5, 1 f 20-29, 1 f 80-89. From other evidence, Jacob was about 33 in 1830, so his mark seems to have been placed in the wrong column. The older
woman may be his mother Polly. If so, her mark is probably in the wrong column, too, as it is unlikely she was 10 years older than her husband, and having children in her mid-50's (Elizabeth Zook was born in 1804.) The columns on this census
were clearly labelled and ruled, though.

I do not know if this Christian Garber is any relation to us. He seems of the same generation of the children of Johannes H. Garber, yet I'm pretty sure the list of Johannes' children is known, and he is not on it. But since the family was in
the same county that Johannes resided in for a while, and his sons Martin and Samuel remained in for even longer, even if they were not related, at least their families are easily confusable, so I want them all in the database.

Lester Binnie's "The German Baptist Arnolds" gives the name of Christian C. Arnold's wife as Frances Truss. The typed index to Wabash Co. marriage records gives it as Francis Fouss. (I didn't look at the original.) The marriage license
application for their daughter Carrie gives her mother's maiden name as Frances Truss (this may be Lester Binnie's source.) I have not seen the name Truss in any other records associated with Brethren families, but Fouts/Foutz/Pfouts/ Pfoutz
was a common Brethren name (e.g., there are 68 entries for it in the Montgomery Co., OH, 1803-1851 marriage records, and 17 entries for it in Binnie's Wabash & Kosciusko Co. cemetery records). So it is likely that Truss is a misreading of
Fouss, which is a variant of Fouts.

She was listed as age 41 when her mother died in Oct 1925 (which would imply a birthdate in 1884), and as age 41 when her sister died in Dec 1926 (which would imply a birthdate in 1885). Since her parents married in Oct 1884, the 1885 date is
most probable.

wife.

From Evelyn (Grisso) Fawley Pittenger's account of the Grisso family: "Now Dad, so the story goes, wanted to name his new son "Peter", after a Peter Grisso, but Mother held out for "Warren", for the president of the United States, Warren
Harding. Dad had his way, though, nevertheless, and Warren became "Pete", a name he carried until his death." (The only Peter Grisso in my files is the son of Christian Grisso & Elizabeth Detrick. He would have been a first cousin of Adam
Grisso. It is rather odd that Charles would want to name a son after a cousin of his fathers, who lived and died in Ohio, and whom Charles may have never met. But I don't know the children of Samuel Berton Grisso, perhaps he had a son Peter,
who would be Charles' first cousin.)

According to Binnie (German Baptist Arnolds, p. 44), Sarah's stone in the Beaver Run Cemetery shows "Sarah Leatherman, wife of Benjamin, d. 25 July 1910, age 85y 11m 28d". This would put her birthdate at 23 July 1824, which is in conflict with
the birthdate for her brother David implied by his stone (3 Aug 1824). Since he died young, and since there is no "carrying" between months and years involved in the calculation of his age at death, it is more likely that his age is the correct
one. One possibility is that they are twins, and her stone should have said 85y 10m 8d (someone made an error of 10 days in calculating her age at death.) Another possibility is that Sarah was born in 1823, though that would mean two children
almost exactly a year apart, which is very close spacing, especially for a 42-year-old mother. I am tentatively entering this as her birthdate. It might be helpful to look up the Benjamin & Sarah Leatherman family in the 1880 census.

The signature of "Nicklaus Rhrig" appears on the list of passengers arriving at Philadelphia on 21 Sep 1742, aboard the English ship "Francis and Elizabeth" (Captain George North), en route from Rotterdam with a stop at Deal in Kent. He was
listed as a German; the list does not include ages nor the names of women and children. This is the only variation of the name appearing in the book "30,000 Names of Immigrants in Pennsylvania", so it is almost certainly the Nicholaus Rarigh
who settled in Germantown, in Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania. (In 1784 the northern part of Philadelphia Co., including Germantown, was split off to form Montgomery Co.)

Two years later (8 Oct 1744) the ship Aurora arrived in Philadelphia, also from Rotterdam, bearing passengers Conrad and John Heinrich Rrich, who also settled in Germantown. This Conrad has sometimes been erroneously identified as the father
of Henry Rarick who married Catherine Summers, for example, as of this writing (May 1994), he is so attached in the LDS Ancestral File, based on a 1991 submission from Mrs. Brent Ossman, 15256 Hyacinth Place, Dumfries, VA 22026. But estate
records of Montgomery Co., PA show this assumption to be false.

"Nickolaus Rerig" and "Anna Maria Jansen", were married in St. Michael's Zion Lutheran Church in Germantown, on 5 May 1747. Nickolaus was marked as "Reformed", and Anna Maria as a "Lutheran widow", age 24, daughter of Jan Jansen and Elizabeth
Papen. (This marriage is in the LDS Ancestral File, from submission AF83-060427, by John F. Vallentine, 1981 S. 700 E, Springville, UT 84663. The couple is not linked to anyone else in the AF, and there are no other event dates on their
individual records, so it was probably a general extraction of the Germantown Zion Lutheran Church marriage records.)

From "Sketches of Lower Salford" in the Bulletin of the Historical Society of Montgomery County (Pennsylvania) we read the following: "On January 19, 1748, John Johnson and his wife, Mary, granted to Nicholas Rary, a stocking weaver, of
Germantown, seven acres and a quarter, of his best land.... Nicholas Rary then lived there and carried on the stocking weaving about twenty-seven years, and then died there intestate. leaving a widow and two sons, whose names were Henry and
John. Letters of administration on his estate were granted to his widow, Mary, and son Henry. These administrators together with Henry's wife, Catherine, sold and confirmed the lot to his brother, John Rary, and gave conveyance dated February
1, 1776. John Rary owned this lot only two years, when he and his wife, Regina, confirmed the same property to Robert De Silver, on May 2, 1778..." The property was in the village of Harleysville, in Lower Salford township. At the time it was
part of Philadelphia Co., and is now in Montgomery Co.

It was noted in the Goshenhoppen Church records that a Mr. Roerig was buried on October 7, 1775, and that he was born 1698, day unknown, aged about 77 years. It is not known when his wife, Anna Maria, died, except that it must have been after
the 1776 estate sale. If the age and year of birth are correct, Nicklaus would have been 49 when he married Anna Maria Jansen, and thus may have had a prior marriage himself, perhaps in Germany. On the other hand, ages given at death by the
deceased's relatives are often wrong by many years.

The IGI does not contain entries for any Nicklaus Roehrig (or variants) born in Germany within a dozen years of 1698. The closest entries are for Nikolaus Rorhig, b. 22 Nov 1713, in Ershausen, Eichsfeld, Sachsen, Preussen, son of Freidrich
Rohrig and Barbara Mueller; and Johann Niclauss Roerich, christened 30 May 1714, in Evangelisch, Dierdorf, Rheinland, Preussen, son of Johan Anthon Roerich and Eva Catherina Scneiderss. (The LDS files use "oe" to represent "" and "ue" to
represent "". The first place field in an extraction record is usually the name of the church. The marriages of the parents in the two births listed above are also in the IGI.)

The LDS Ancestral File has the eldest son of Henry Shank & Catharine Rasor named Jacob Shank, and says that he married Elizabeth Noffsinger about 1810. There is no such marriage listed in the Montgomery Co. marriage records. But there is one
for David Shenk m. Elizabeth Noffsing on 6 June 1811. I suspect that either these are the same person (maybe someone misread Jacob as David), or else that Henry & Catharine's son Jacob did not marry an Elizabeth Noffsinger. (The Ancestral File
shows no son named David for Henry & Catharine, and the Montgomery Co. records do not show any marriage for a Jacob Shank/Shenk/Schenck before 1840.)

the bride under 18.)

The chart at the back of Lester Binnie's "The Heeter Family Letters" says that Solomon s/o Abraham & Catherine (Kreitzer) was born "ca 1832" (probably based on 1850 census) and married Malinda Gilbert, no date or place given for the marriage or
for her birth and death. There is also no place or date of death for Solomon. Eliza Wolf is not mentioned. But there does not seem to be any other Solomon Heeter who could be Eliza's husband, and the proximity in the 1860 census suggests that
the one who married Eliza Wolf is Abraham's son.

Lindsey Brien lists as a daughter of Samuel & Rhuehanna Heeter "Pauline", while the chart at the end of "The Heeter Family Letters" gives her name as "Parlena".

[NI6315] [ae19.FTW]

According to Lindsey Brien's "Miami Valley Genealogies", Catherine is buried in Trissel Cemetery in Jackson twp, and her stone reads: Catharine Bowman d. June 17, 1892, age 55 yrs, 5 mo. 23 da., which implies a birthdate of Christmas, 1836.
According to the chart at the back of "The Heeter Family Letters", which was primarily compiled by Robert McNelly of New Lebanon, OH, and Lawrence Mitchell of Dayton, Catherine and John are buried in Bear Creek Cemetery in Madison twp, and her
stone indicated she died 30 June 1894, and was born 23 Jan 1841. I am using the latter dates, because a birthdate in 1836 would conflict with that for her bother John, and also because McNelly and Mitchell were concentrating on building a
Heeter descendency chart, whereas Lindsey Brien was publishing data on many different Miami Valley families, and may not have been able to take as much care about distinguishing one John & Catherine Bowman from another.

Lindsay Brien's "Miami Valley Genealogies", Vol. 2, p. 25, lists as a son of John Bowman & Elizabeth Bright: "John, born Mar. 7, 1833, married Apr. 7, 1867, Catharine Keener (daughter of John and Mary.)" However, on the next page, in a list of
cemetery records, in a section labelled "Children of John & Elizabeth (Bright) Bowman", is a stone in the Trissel Cem, next to a wife Catherine, which reads: "Rev. John J. Bowman d. July 14, 1919, age 80 yrs 11 mo. 21 da." This would imply a
birthdate of 24 July 1838. Either one of the dates is in error, or there are two John Bowmans of the same generation with wives named Catherine, and the one buried in Trissel Cemetery is not really a child of John & Elizabeth (Bright) Bowman. I
am assuming the latter, because "The Heeter Family Letters" also has the 7 Mar 1833 date, and says that John & Catherine are buried in Bear Creek Cemetery.

There is a stone in the Ellerton Cemetery in Jefferson twp, Montgomery Co., OH for Frederick Heeter, died Jan 10, 1831, aged 75 years, implying a birthdate around 1755. (The other Heeters in the cemetery are Sebastian's son Abraham and his wife
Catherine.) Frederick probably accompanied Sebastian's family to Montgomery Co. in 1814/1815. (I should check the 1820 census.) Since all the known Heeters in Montgomery Co. are descended from Sebastian, it is likely that when Frederick came to
Montgomery Co., at age 60 or more, he did not bring any family with him.

In the Bear Creek Church of the Brethren Cemetery in Madison twp, Montgomery Co., Ohio, is a stone for Mary Heeter, wife of William, died Nov 27, 1876, age 67y 9m 13d, which implies a birthdate of 14 Feb 1809. [The only other early Heeters in
that cemetery are Sebastian's son Samuel and Henry's son Abraham, and their wives.] One would assume that William was either older than Mary, or not much younger than her, but there are no records of any William Heeter in that generation.
(Sebastian's first grandson, George s/o John, was born in 1813, and there is not really room to squeeze any unknown grandchildren before 1820). There is room for Sebastian himself to have a son born in late 1808, and still have a spacing of
about 14-16 months between children. If Sebastian had had a son who died before 1837, when he made his will, and William left no children, Sebastian might not have made a bequest to William's widow Mary. But this is a bit of a stretch. Perhaps
William was a son of Frederick (1755-1831) of whom no descendents are known. Another possibility is that William was a relative back east, and his wife Mary died in Montgomery Co. while on a visit. The fact that there are no marriages for any
William Heeter in early Montgomery Co. records would tend to support that hypothesis.

with eleven children: Mary, Abner, Mamie, Willard, Harriet, Esta, Almeda, Kathryn, Victor, John, and Mabel.... Nearly all the family of Silas and Louisa remained in the immediate vicinity and rasied their families. Those living in North

would be 80. I haven't checked the death certificate itself, but I am sure that this is Florence (Huffman) Heeter, widow of Clement, because it is stretching coincidence to suppose that a different Florence Heeter would die in North Manchester
in 1952 and her death certificate say she was buried in Oak Lawn but her stone not be listed in Binnie's books, while Florence Heeter wife of Clement died elsewhere in 1952 but was buried with him in Oak Lawn. It would still be interesting to

Wabash County History, Bicentennial Edition 1976, has article on p. 389 by Mrs. Dale Heeter on the family of John C. Heeter, that includes the passage: "One of the unusual happenings during John A. and Martha (Tuckey) Heeter's lifetime came in
1905 when son Walter became ill with what a local doctor pronounced as appendicitis. Unable to relieve the situation himself, he contacted a surgeon from Ft. Wayne who came by train to Sidney, a town seven miles north of the home. A member of
the family met the surgeon in a buggy and rushed back to the patient who by this time was far along in infection. The local doctor had secured a North Manchester nurse named Williams, who was on duty before the Ft. Wayne physician arrived. With
the help of the family, she had scrubbed and disinfected and had the patient ready for surgery. A large dinner table was moved to the front room where all the furniture had been removed. The operation proceeded. To the dismay of all, the
surgeon gave up after noting the burst appendix. The surgeon stopped only long enough for the nurse to rise in indignation and remind him he had a patient to bring through. Gauze was handed to him and, reluctantly, the surgeon applied it. This
done, proper drainage was obtained, and the operation was over. The patient was now in the hands of the local doctor and Miss Williams who stayed by the young man, sitting on a straight chair, never sleeping for many days and nights. The family
had to climb an outside ladder to sleeping rooms because no one was allowed into the sick room which had the stairway opening. Walter recovered and steadily regained health."

birthdate as 3-8-1893. The application states that the marriage will be on 27 Dec 1913. The returned license is filed separately, in Bk 17, p. 222. I did not consult it, so it is possible that the actual marriage date was later.

Wabash Co. death records, bk 1986, p. 2, line 817, lists Melvin L. Heeter, d. 1-24-86, age 90, in Peabody Home, burial in Pleasant Hill.

Binnie's "Cemetery Records of Chester twp", p. 72, lists in Pleasant Hill Cem. a joint stone inscribed: "Melvin L. Heeter 1895-19__ Blanche E. 1893-19__" (He took his notes in 1970, at which time Melvin & Blanche were alive.)

Binnie's "Cemetery Records of Chester twp" lists on p. 59, in Pleasant Hill Cem, a double stone for: "Mahlon Heeter 1872-1937 Susanna 1874-1942" (This is adjacent to the stones for their daughter Edith Fern, and for John A. Heeter (1860-1936),

Ruth Heeter b. 22 Dec 1901 said that her parents were Mahlon Heeter & Susanna Butterbaugh. This agrees with the death record cited above, and with the cemetery inscription. But the 1900 census listed Mahlon's wife as "Tudie", and the Wabash
County History listed Mahlon's wife as Truda Butterbaugh. I guess one of these was a first name and one a middle name, but I don't know which was which.

59, in Pleasant Hill Cem, adjacent to the double stone for Mahlon & Susanna Heeter, a stone for "Edith F. Heeter, dau. of M. & T., died 21 Oct. 1900, age 2-10-21". Apparently she was moved to Pleasant Hill when her parents bought their plot
there. (The cemetery of the Old Union Church of the Brethren is small, and many graves have transferred to Pleasant Hill or Oak Lawn.) The initial of "T." for Edith's mother is probably an error in Binnie's transcription.

Sophia was listed as age 2 in the 1860 census, but it is highly unlikely she was born in 1858, since her brother Henry was born in Nov 1858. If the census was correct about her age, she was probably born in the late summer or fall of 1857, and
thus wasn't quite 3.

From a letter written by Henry & Hannah (Vaniman) Heeter to their son Abraham, 18 Dec 1858: "georges wife Leah was confined to her Bed November the 17th By two days of hard Struggle before She had the Baby But she was releaft and put to Bed in

stone in Krisher cemetery reads: Henry, son of Geo. & Leah Heeter, died Dec 14, 1858, age 27 days. (This implies birth on Nov 18, and thus is 1 day earlier for both birth and death than the dates given in the letter quoted above.)

Born as Medford Petitt, but when he enlisted in the Army, they misspelled his name, and he couldn't get his college tuition paid via the G.I. Bill if he enrolled under a different spelling. The Army said it would take 3 months to correct his
record, and he didn't want to miss a semester of college, so he decided that it was easier to change his name than to change the army.

1882 near Sidney, to Reuben and Elizabeth (Priser) Heeter, and married Florence Nichols Nov. 23, 1904. She survives. ... Surviving in addition to his wife are three daughters, Mrs. Herbert (Mildred) Priser, of North Manchester, Mrs. Max (Erma)

Nicholas' obituary, as well as Lela Shoup's Annals of the Donnels Creek District (p. 8) says that he was born in Augusta Co., VA, but we know from other sources that his parents were living in Botetourt Co. in the late 1700's. Most likely the
obituary is mistaken , but it is possible that the family was visiting in Augusta Co. when he was born.

The 1850 census of Pleasant twp, Wabash Co., IN, taken in August, lists this family (#153) as: Nicholas Frantz 53 Farmer, Catherine 51, Anna 17, Rebecca 14, Mary 10, Phebe 6; Nicholas and Catherine born in VA, Anna, Rebecca, and Mary born in
Ohio, Phebe born in Indiana.

LBPPP, p. 6 lists Nicholas' tombstone inscription as died 30 Sept 1874 age 77-4-29.

ECCF, Vol. II, pages 117-118, entry submitted by Lela Shoup, according to which the family moved to Clark County in 1826. That entry gives Nicholas' birthdate as 5 May 1797, which is not consistent with his tombstone and obituary (nor with her
own profile of Nicholas Frantz on p.8 of Annals of the Donnels Creek District.) Further details in ECCF, Vol. V, pages 162-163, entry submitted by Ken Crill. He gives Nicholas' place of death as Acme, Jackson Co., IN.

Lowell Beachler also lists a daughter Barbara married a Swank, no other details. I am not entering this daughter without more info as to source. Brethren histories, e.g., Lest We Forget by Rolland Flory, say that Nicholas had eight married
daughters.

wife of John Garber. That book has no other details on the John Garber/Barbara Zook family, as it covers only male line Zug descendents, but there is no indication that they did not remain in Pennsylvania like most of the other members of the
Henry Zook (#2257) family. Thus, Barbara probably died there.

Her obituary in the South Bend Tribune, 31 Aug 1947 has Rose born 24 Aug 1881. This cannot be right, since the 1880 census of Pleasant twp, Wabash Co., IN, recorded in June, has Rose as two months old.

1900 census of Tippecanoe twp, Kosciusko Co., Ind. has Rose born 20 Apr 1880, living with her husband Arthur Secrist. However, since the census taker was not required to take the day of birth (only month), and since he has both Arthur and Rose
being born the same day of the month as the number of years of age they are, it is likely that he just put the age down in two columns.

1900 census of Cleveland twp, Whitley Co., Ind. has Rose born Apr 1880, listed with her parents. Apparently she was just visiting, and got counted twice!

Ken Fawley's family group chart has her birthdate as 24 Aug 1880. I do not know his source for this date.

Page 25 of the Dore M. Frantz Burials document says that Jacob was born January 11, 1801 in Augusta County, Virginia, and died January 1849. Lowell Beachler's submission on page 77, Volume II, Early Clark County Families, says that he was born
in Botetourt County, and gives his date of death as 31 Jan 1894, but this is apparently a transposition of digits, as Catherine remarried in 1851. Lela Shoup's Annals of the Donnel's Creek District says on p. 9, "Jacob Crist was born January
16, 1801, near Berlin, Pennsylvania, and being left an orphan at an early age, he went to live with an aunt and uncle, Jonathan and Barbara (Crist) Brubaker in Roanoke County, Virginia." The paragraph continues, mentioning his marriages,
children, and death. Berlin, PA is now in Somerset Co., but it was in Bedford Co. in 1801. According to Lowell Beachler, Barbara Crist who married Jonathan Brubaker was the sister, not the aunt, of this Jacob Crist. She was only 7 years his
senior, so Jacob must not have been extremely young when he went to live with them. His father died in 1804, and his mother Margaretha Hob did not die until 1840.

George Heeter's "Chart of Ohmart Genealogy" has the date for the marriage of Jacob and Catherine as 10 Mar 1826.

1850 census of Clark Co., Ohio, Pike twp, page 131, enumerated 27 Aug, lists this family as #1086: Catharine Crist, 41, Va; Jacob, 26; John, 20; Adam, 18; Barbara, 14; Margaret, 11; Samuel, 8; Catharine, 5. There are ditto marks through the

The source for this John Garber is Harry D. Zook's entry for the Henry Zug family, which gives no dates for John or his marriage to Barbara Zook. Note, though, that he cannot be the same as John Garber (#864) who became the first Elder of the
Donnel's Creek Church of the Brethren, and also married a Barbara Zook. This is both due to age conflicts (John Garber #864 had nine adult children in 1813, and there is no indication that they were not all by his wife Barbara Zook, so she
must have been born before 1765), and more solidly, because the will of Henry Zook (#2257) written in 1820 names as co-executor his grandson Henry Garber, who was thus apparently still in Chester Co., PA, while the will of John Garber (#864),
written in 1813 in Ohio, explicitly lists all of his children, none of whom were named Henry.

Elizabeth Laughlin's chart for the Philip Philhower family lists the name of his second child as "Sideon", but I think it likely that she misread some document and his name is really either Gideon or Simeon. Gideon seems the closest

represent elisions of other couples married by C. Arnold since his preceding report.)

The Heeter family name is also sometimes spelled "Heater".

Henry and his wife Hannah were members of the Wolf Creek Church of the Brethren in Miami County, Ohio. They moved to Wabash County in 1854, with their daughter Elizabeth (Betsy) and son-in-law Daniel Garber, where Henry was an early deacon in
the Manchester Church of the Brethren.

for $3,365.67; 109 1/2 acres of this were sold by William and Elenor Hoffman, 1835, Apr 1, to James Stevenson for $2,737.50. Henry's will, dated 1790, Sept. 13; probated 1794, Aug. 19, leaves all his property to his second wife, until her death

of Paw Paw and Pleasant Townships, Wabash County, Indiana gives his tombstone inscription as simply 1817-1910. I have chosen the date of 1818 primarily because it is consistent with the recorded marriage date of his parents, and with his being
born in Ohio (in 1817, his parents were still in Virginia.)

Obituary in North Manchester News-Journal, Thursday, 5 Mar 1925, reads: "Mrs. Barbara Bloxson, a sister of Mrs. J. A. Bonewitz of North Manchester and Adam Grisso of Sidney, died at the Wabash County Infirmary Monday evening at 5:30. She fell
and broke her hip about four weeks ago at her home in Wabash and was taken to the county infirmary for care. The funeral was held at the Wesleyan Methodist Church at Wabash this forenoon and burial was in the Laketon cemetery. Mrs. Bloxson was
the daughter of Benjamin Grisso and his wife and was born in Laketon about 75 years ago. She married John W. Blockson from whom she later separated. Nine children were born to them, four of whom are living. They are William of near Roann, Homer
of Wabash, Charles of Huntington, and Mrs. Rose Enders of Freeport, Michigan."

This marriage is indexed in the IGI as David O. Frantz to Lucy Ann Morris, batch M514402, 0457, but his name was really Daniel, per census, burial, etc. Apparently an "n" was misread as a "v" and an "el" as a "d."

According to p. 44 of the Dore M. Frantz Burials document, Leah's tombstone reads "Leah Flory, died January 19, 1912, aged 73 yrs., 3 mo., 13 ds." Calculating backwards from that age at death would yield a birthdate of 6 Oct 1838. That,
however, would be in conflict with her sister Christina's birthdate. So I am going by the birthdate from Lowell Beachler's family group sheets.

The following, written by Leah, and illustrating her sense of humor, was among the keepsakes of Mary Hannah Flory Cover: "And it came to pass in those days, that Jesse, the some of David, went into the woods to hue timber; and while moving a
huge log he fell with his leg under him and lo, one bone broke asunder, hard by the ankle joint. And he got himself on his beast of burden and rode to his fathers house and called to his wife, Mary, to fetch him a staff where with to reach the
house. Then called his younger brother, who is also called Elmer, and said "go quickly to the village of Camden and telephone to thy elder brother, the physician, who liveth in the city of Eaton, and say 'make no delay, but come with all speed
to thy father David's house, for behold my leg is broken.'" So his elder brother, the physician, came with haste and bound up his leg, pouring on egg and alum, and said unto him "thou shalt not walk on this leg for forty and two days', which
caused great grief unto him and also his wife, Mary, and also to the whole house of his father David. And straightway on the morrow, his elder brother, the physician, came back and encased his leg in plaster-of-paris, saying 'thus shalt thou
leave it for twenty and eight days, and forth with went back to his home in Eaton. Written by his mother Leah who will send it without delay by the hand of her servant Olie."

Most of the children's births and marriages are from an LDS IGI submission, source batch 5002610, sheets 31 and 34. This batch has the children's mother's name as "Lydia Daniel" (no final s.) I sent for it, but the film which came did not
really have that batch on it, so I don't know who made the submission. The index also lists from this batch the marriage of Jacob Brubaker to Lydia Daniel on 14 Apr 1814 in Whitley County, Indiana, which does not make sense.

The IGI for Ohio twice lists the marriage of Jacob Brubaker to Lydia Daniels in Perry County, Ohio. Batch M514131, sheet 2227 gives the date as 13 Dec 1837, while batch 8408707, sheet 61 gives it as 14 Dec 1837. My guess is that the former date
is when the marriage license was issued, and the latter when the wedding took place.

Birth and death dates for Jacob Brubaker and Lydia Daniels are from Ken Fawley and Marwin E. Brubaker. According to Marwin's notes, they had 9 children, of whom 3 sons died in camp of measles during the Civil War. (from an 1884 history of

Lindsay Brien's "Pioneer Families of Montgomery Co., OH", Vol. 4, p. 85, lists as a son of Sebastian Heeter: "Samuel Heeter, born 1812, died Nov. 28, 1882; married, Dec. 17, 1840, Ruehanna Nation, born Apr. 8, 1813, died Oct. 5, 1908, age 98
years, 5 mo. 27 da. (this would place her birth as 1808). Both buried Bear Creek Cemetery. She was the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth (Moser) Nation; issue - Mary, m William Kreitzer; Jacob, m Mary Bowman; Pauline, m Charles Watson;
Catharine, m Adam Krull." (Brien has Samuel's date of birth wrong; I suspect the comment about Rhuehanna's age at death is due to misreading 95 as 98.)

Montgomery Co. marriage records list Samuel Heater m. Ruhannah Nation Dec 17, 1840. (This is the same day that his brother Jacob m. Susanna Keener.)

Abraham was a wagon-maker. The majority of the letters in "The Heeter Family Letters" are addressed to this Abraham Heeter. His wife is usually addressed as "Cass" or "Cas", but some of the letters before about 1859, especially from Henry &
Hannah, address her as "Caty". Some of the later letters, once his nieces and nephews got old enough to write, include postscripts addressed to Abraham's children. E.g., on p. 150, at the end of a letter dated 10 Jan 1865, from Abraham's
brother Jacob, is a drawing of a quill pen, addressed "Mary Heeter Lydia Heeter Stephen Heeter Anna Heeter To Mary Heeter John Heeter Pery Heeter Elizabeth Heeter".

Heeter Family Letters says that Ruth Bryan was born 1 Jun 1794 and died 2 May 1844, while Ken Heeter's pedigree chart published in the Kosciusko County 5-generation book says that she was born 30 Mar 1793 and died 2 Mar 1844. The numbers lead
me to conjecture that the ultimate source for both of these alternatives is a hard-to-read tombstone and a birthdate calculated from age at death. According to Lindsay Brien's Miami Valley Genealogies, Vol. 4, p. 85, Ruth's stone in the New
Providence Lutheran Cemetery in Perry twp, Montgomery Co., OH reads: Ruth Heeter, wife of John, died May 2, 1844, age 50y 11m 2d. From this, I would get the 30 Mar 1793 date.

According to Lindsay Brien's Miami Valley Genealogies, Vol. 4, p. 84, Ruth died at age 50 in the cholera epidemic of the spring of 1844, as did her children George (age 30), Levi (age 21), Naomi (age 18), and daughter-in-law Amelia (age 21).

DEATH: The Heeter Family Letters by Lester H. Binnie, on p. 246, lists Martin Hoover's date of death as "3-129-1876", obviously a typo. The most likely typographical error would be to hit a 1 along with the 2, so I have put the date of death as
29 Mar 1876. But it could also be 12 March or 19 March.

and obtained for himself the name of "framer John" because he excelled in framing buildings securely. The combs of his buildings are still straight and unsagging after more than 125 years of weathering storms and suns. He was married twice -
first to Amelia A. Micheals (12/20/1822 - 2/10/1844), later to Elizabeth (Ruth) Burkett. John C. was born Feb. 9, 1818; Elizabeth was born Nov. 13, 1828. They toiled building and farming and had a family of ten children. Death claimed Elisha at
age 4, Elizabeth at age 5, and Sarah at 16 years of age. Of the other children, Gorman became a minister and married Rachael Fanning... Eliza married farmer Joseph Hoover. Lydia was a minister's wife, Rev. John Arnold, Illinois, who had lost
the mother of his two daughters and did well in choosing Lydia as their stepmother. Jesse, a farmer, married Lavina Madlem. Charles, a farmer and carpenter, was married first to Mary Kyler. In late years his second marriage was to Sue Smith
Beck. John A., who farmed on the homeplace, was married to Martha Tuckey. Mahlon, a farmer and carpenter, was married to Truda Butterbaugh."

(She was Elizabeth Lemon, first married to George Heeter, who died in Ohio.)" Usually Binnie places his own notes in parentheses, but the part before that looks like a lot to put on a stone. Maybe her Heeter children wanted that put on her
stone because otherwise there would be nothing to identify her as their mother.

husband of Lydia. He is not likely to be a son of Michael, because Michael's daughter Susannah (who had died earlier in 1850) was born in 1828, and besides, he is listed out of age order. The age for young Michael should be 15 if the birthdate
on his gravestone is correct. The age for Lydia is consistent with the birthdate Thomas Beardsley lists for her of 22 Nov 1830, but not with the birthdate Dore M. Frantz lists for her of 22 May 1831.

Marriage of John Grisso to Lydia Baker listed on page 42, Volume 2, F. through L, of Early Marriage Bonds of Ohio.

The John Grisso family moved from Clark County, Ohio to Indiana, probably Wabash County, sometime between 1850 and 1855. We have not found an 1860 census record for them.

The profile of the John Grisso & Sarah Frantz family in Binnie's "Early Brethren Families..." says that 5 children were born to John & Sarah, and that Amanda was a half-sister of the other 5 children listed in the 1870 census, but this seems
inconsistent with census and marriage records.

"History of Clark County, Ohio", page 218, says that John was the father of thirteen children, but does not mention how many by each wife, nor give any of their names. He probably really had fewer than 13 children.

Forrest was Ohio's Poet Laureate at one time (I don't know the period.) He published two collections of his poetry: "Sailing the Silver Seas", Antioch Press, 1938. "On Golden Wings", Commercial Service Co., 1952. The second book has some
biographical information, including pictures of Bertie as a young girl, and Forrest and Bertie's 50th wedding anniversary.

Will in Montgomery Co., OH, Probate Court records, case #154880. Records give his date of birth as 5 Aug 1872 and date of death as 5 Sep 1961, of uremia. According to the probate records, his spouse preceded him in death, and he left 4
children:

Bertie Catherine Randall, 406 Mechanic St., Eaton, OH

Phila Belle Smith, Rt. 1, Ozias Rd., Eaton, OH

Nellie May Florkey, 820 Richmond Ave, Dayton, OH

Eldon Forrest Grisseau, 106 Valley View Dr., Dayton, OH.

Apparently his daughter Stella had also predeceased him.

According to "History of Clark County", Joseph and Sarah were the parents of six children. (I should check the 1890 census of Springfield township, Clark Co. to see if there was a child born after 1880. There is also room for a possible child
who died young, perhaps between Lewis and Anne.)

This marriage listed on page 51, Volume 2, F. through L, of Early Marriage Bonds of Ohio.

Hazel Parks' family group for Joseph on p. 100 of Early Clark County Families, Vol. V, says that he was b. 1831 and d. 8 Jan 1888. Don't know her source for these dates. My source for Joseph's birthdate is the 1880 census, and for the death
date, the Dore M. Frantz burial records. I don't know whether the date given in the Dore M. Frantz manuscript is from an inscription on Joseph's stone in Vale Cemetery, or whether it is an annotation by Mr. Frantz.

Nellie's birthdate might actually be Dec 1899. The 1900 census of Dayton lists her as Nellie M., born 12/1897, while the 1910 census of Dayton lists her as Nellie W., age 10. I've chosen the 1897 interpretation because in old-fashioned
handwriting, 9's are fairly rounded and seldom look like 7's, while 3's have round bottoms and skinny tops, and can easily look like a 0.

All of Jonathan and Barbara's children except Jacob and Sarah are from Esther Kemp of Canada. (I have more complete information on Jacob and Sarah because their families are included in the Early Clark County Families books.)

p 21 of Dore M. Frantz Burials document lists a Noah Brubaker, son of Jonathan and Barbara Brubaker, who died in infancy. No birth or death date given.

Dates of birth and death from her tombstone, as cited in the Dore M. Frantz Burials document, p. 32. Early Families of Clark Co., Vol. 5, p. 97, submission by Hazel Parks, instead has the dates Jan 1799 - 6 Mar 1870, her source not known.

Nancy was said to be (according to a history of Clark County) a cousin of George's first wife, Catherine Frantz. If this is right and "cousin" meant "first cousin", she must be a daughter of either John Frantz or Abraham Frantz. (These are the
sons of Michael Frantz II whose offspring I do not have a full list of.) She may be a more distant cousin. On the other hand, since Nancy was 44 at the time of her marriage, it is also possible that she was the widow of a Frantz, and that it is
not her maiden surname. The editors of county histories are notorious at making assumptions on little evidence.

There is no record of the marriage of George Grisso to Nancy Frantz in the Clark County marriage bonds. It is possible they were married in Preble Co., Logan Co. or Montgomery Co., since there were Frantz families in all those neighboring
counties. I have found a marriage record for "George Cressel and Nancy France" on 20 Jan 1842 in Montgomery County court records. This is one year earlier than the date that Clark Co. histories give for George's remarriage, but within the range
of error typical for such histories. Since there are no other records of any "Cressel" families in this part of Ohio, my working assumption is that this represents the best guess transcription of a minister who did not know the Grisso family.
(Note also that the marriage bond of George & Catherine lists his name as "Cressoe", written by the minister and marked with George's X.)

[NI8163] [ae19.FTW]

Brith and death dates are from Dore M. Frantz burials document, p. 22. However, Lowell Beachler gives the date of birth and death for Barbara Crist as 1797-1860.

Most of my information on this family from correspondence with Esther Kemp of Canada. She has the date for Henry & Elizabeth's marriage as 19 March 1795; Lowell Beachler has it as 24 March 1795. Most likely one date is from a marriage bond and
the other is from a minister's return. In these situations, the later date is more usually correct, so I will enter that one until I can examine the sources.

Marriage of John Neher and Elizabeth Garst listed on page 72, Vol. 3, of Early Marriage Bonds of Ohio. Original record in Clark County Probate Court marriage Book 2, page 461. Although all family group sheets I have seen for John Neher say that
he also married Elizabeth Studebaker in Clark County, there is no such marriage listed in Clark County Marriage Records. There were Studebaker families in neighboring Montgomery and Miami counties.

Dore M. Frantz cemetery records give Elizabeth's date of birth as 30 Sep 1823 and date of death as 5 July 1852. However, all other documents I've seen, including Our Garst Family (pages 227, 228) and Early Clark County Families, Vol. V, p.4,
give her date of birth as 10 Oct 1823 and date of death as 15 July 1852. Perhaps Dore M. Frantz missed seeing a "1" on the date of death, and calculated the date of birth from age at death.

Ohio. Perhaps she was not from Clark Co., or the family may have been missed.

According to Dore M. Frantz's notes, Sarah Jane had a brother named Obediah, and a sister in Indiana. I do not have any other record of an Obediah Frantz.

Stone in the New Providence Lutheran Cemetery in Perry twp, Montgomery Co., OH for George Heeter, died 1854, age 59y 6m 16d

Montgomery Co. Probate Court Civil Journal B, p. 3, date Nov. 28, 1854, has two entries titled "In the matter of the heirs of George Heeter dec'd." The first one says "George Heeter aged 18 years September 9th, 1854 and Martha A. Heeter aged 13
years September 11th, 1854 this day came into open court and chose Sebastian H. Heeter as their guardian. And the court approving of their said choice do appoint the said Sebastian H. Heeter Guardian of the aforesaid minors children and heirs
of George Heeter dec'd. And thereupon came into open court the said Sebastian H. Heeter accepted said appointment and gave bond in the penal sum of Four thosand Dollars with David Heck as his security approved by the Court and conditioned
according to law." The second says "John Heeter aged 15 years June 25th 1854 child and heir of George Heeter dec'd this day came into open court and chose Adam Heeter as his guardian and the court approving said choice do appoint the said Adam
Heeter as such Guardian to said minor. And thereupon the said Adam Heeter came into open court accepted said appointment and gave bond in the penal sum of Two thousand Dollars with William McCormick as his security approved by the Court and
conditioned according to law." (George's youngest children thus chose their older brothers as guardians. At the time, Adam was 34 and Sebastian 28.)

Birth and death are from his tombstone. I have a photograph of it taken by Ken Fawley, and the dates are quite clear.

Lowell Beachler instead gives Henry's day of birth as Feb 14 and his day of death as Sep 6 (the years agree).

Prior to the marriage, Henry Brubaker was living in Preble County, Ohio.

This marriage listed on p.36 of Early Marriage Bonds of Ohio, Book 1, A through E, as "Henry Brubacher to Catharine Grisso". It cites the original bond record as being in Book 2, 1832-1845, page 126. Curiously, Early Marriage Bonds of Ohio,
Book 2, F through L, does not list this marriage.

Not mentioned in his father's will, and no known descendents, so he probably died young. He may have been the Friederich who arrived on the same ship and signed the oath of allegiance at the same time as Theobald Gerst, as he would have been 16
at the time. But that could have been Theobald's brother instead.

Her name appears on the marriage bond to John Grisso as "Solma Frantz", on some family group sheets by other researchers as "Salome", and on most Wabash County records (census, cemetery, etc.) as "Sarah". To her family she was known as Sally.
There are no records which give her name as "Sarah Salome" or "Salome Sarah." It is possible that she was born Salome, and at some point in later life she or her children chose to interpret Sally as a diminutive of Sarah.

proved to be an unfaithful husband and father. In the year 1890 he deserted his wife and children and has never been heard of since. By occupation he was a plasterer and up to the time of his disappearance resided at Willow Springs, Douglas

Abraham (whom she does not list) are from Esther Kemp. The data on Abraham is from Marwin Brubaker.

Record of the 1787 Annual District Meeting of the Church of the Brethren in Frederick Co., MD, listed as attendees "Johannes Garber and Samuel Garber, of Lentil's Creek, New Virginia." (Now known as Linville Creek, Rockingham Co., VA, but at
that time it was in Shenandoah Co.)

There were no Zook families in that area of Virginia in the 1770-1790 period, but there were Zooks in the Frederick and Washington Co. area of Maryland, where John Garber frequently travelled on church business and to visit relatives. So he was
probably married in MD ca 1778-1780.

Moved to Clermont Co., OH in 1795, and organized the Stonelick Church there. In 1805 helped Elder Jacob Miller organize the Lower Miami District, then moved north and became the first Elder of the Donnel's Creek District.

John Garber's will dated 11 Dec 1813, in Boston twp, Champaign Co., OH (now part of Clark Co.), lists children in the order "Jacob, Elizabeth, Nancy, Mary, Abraham, Barbara, Magdalene, Joseph, and Samuel." A separate bequest is made to "Peter
Minnick, Sr. my son-in-law and Magdalena his wife". The will is signed Johannes Garber. Peter Minnick, Sr. and Jacob Minnick are listed as co-executors, but Peter Minnick, Sr., made his own will on 8 Jan 1814, and both wills were recorded the
same day, 3 June 1814. Both wills also begin with a statement that the writer is "very sick and weak in body." Perhaps an illness which they both caught at the same time?

Not the same person as Barbara Zook the daughter of Henry Zook of Chester Co., PA, who also married a John Garber. That Barbara was born in 1781 (too young to have 9 adult children in 1813), and also her family was Amish, and there is no
indication that she left Pennsylvania.

The most likely father of this Barbara Zook is Henry Zug, son of Ulrich Zug.

This family profiled on pages 7-10 and page 20 of The Garber Genealogical and Historical Record, Vol. III, by Daniel Garber. Of their 10 listed children, only the descendents of their two grandsons John, son of Samuel, and Joseph, son of
Joseph, are included in the volume.

Daniel Garber in the book cited above identifies John Garber later of MD and VA with a Johannes H. Garber who arrived in the port of Philadelphia aboard the ship Phoenix, on 28 Aug 1750, at the age of 33. This identification has been very
widely disseminated and now appears in many references. However, the signature on the ship passenger list does not match that of our Johannes Garber on later documents (e.g., in 1774 as an executor of the estate of John Stoner of Frederick Co.,
MD), and it should thus be considered unknown when our Johannes Garber arrived in America. See articles by W. J. Garber and Richard R. Weber in the Fellowship of Brethren Genealogists Newsletter, Vol. 21, no. 4 (Winter 1992), and Vol. 25, no. 2
(Summer 1993)

Settled in York Co., PA. Moved to Frederick County, MD in the spring of 1768, and from there to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in 1775. Founded the Flat Rock Congregation at Linville's Creek in what is now Rockingham Co.

Frantz may have got the christening date wrong, or Michael Frantz may have written his wife's year of birth down wrong in his Bible. (Or could they have still been following the old style calendar, where Feb would be followed by March of the

Early Clark County Ohio Families, Vol. 5, p. 97, submission by Hazel Parks, lists Jacob Grisso born before 1814, in Botetourt Co., VA, and places him between George Jr. and Catherine. Marvin Nelson's well-researched Grisso Family Album lists
him as born after 1812, in Ohio, and places him between Catherine and John. If both dates are correct, then that would put his birth in 1813, but at that time the family was in Ohio. Also the spacing between children would be very tight unless
he was a twin of George Jr., and one would expect a fact that to be remembered and recounted in the county histories. Since there are many date errors in the Hazel Parks' submission, and there are four years between the births of Catherine and
John, I am inclined to put more weight on Marvin Nelson's version.

Page 33 of the extracts from Dore M. Frantz's document gives Eliza's dates of birth and death, and lists her as "Daughter of G. and E.", which would probably mean George Grisso, Jr. and Eva Huffman. This is unlikely since she was listed as
living with Christian Grisso and his second wife Phoebe (Ebersole) Myers in the 1860 census of Clark County, Ohio. Also, her grave is next to that of Samuel Grisso, the son of Christian Grisso and his first wife Elizabeth (Detrick). I suspect
that the transcriber of the Frantz manuscript misinterpreted a "C" as a "G."

Lela Shoup's submission on the Nicholas Frantz family on page 118 of Vol. II, Early Clark County families gives Mary's date of death as 5 Mar 1915. This is probably due to a mistranscription at some point, since both the death date and age at
death on her tombstone point to the 12 March date.

Ken Fawley's family group chart for Philip Huffman & Mary Philhower shows Harmon Huffman & Anna Schuyler, with a question mark, as parents of Philip Huffman. But Early Germans of New Jersey does not include him on the list of Harmon & Anna's
children; instead, it lists a son Philip M. Hoffman b. 15 Feb 1774, as well as the other children entered here before my Philip (1793-1855). Of course, German families often had several children with the same first name, which was used as a
baptismal name only, the children going by their second name instead, so it is still possible that my Philip is also a son of Harmon & Anna. But I would like to know what the evidence is for the attribution.

daughter of John and Barbara (Friend) Arnold's daughter Barbara who m. John Minnich, but both John & Barbara (Arnold) Minnich were alive in 1850, so it is not clear why a child of theirs would be living with her grandparents. If the Susan
Arnold age 29 is the daughter of John and Barbara, then her age is wrong, as she was born 14 July 1817, and would be 33 in 1850 (but she was still single.)

Barbara Ohmart Seller's obituary in the North Manchester Journal says that she died 14 Feb 1883 on her 83rd birthday, which would imply a birthdate of 14 Feb 1800. This would also agree with the 1850 census, where she is listed as age 50 (see
Notes for her son Daniel.) But that would be in conflict with the birth of her brother George. Of course, it is possible that George was really born earlier. Her obituary also states that she died in Fulton County in 1883, while the 1880 census
of Bourbon township, Marshall County, Indiana has her living there with her son John Henry Sellers.

A few years after his step-father's death George sold the farm and purchased a home in Churchville, Virginia. George died in the fire when this house burned to the ground. His aged mother, who lived with him following the death of her husband, was rescued from the burning house but died a few weeks later.
