Arnold Noff&nger of
Akron, Ohio writes	-
Jacob Noff singer, son of Peter I, was born in 1764 and died in 1836. According to fifty pages of old family records sent to the News, Jacob, Dr. John, and Daniel are all children of Peter who migrated to Nohlenberg County, Kentucky during the late 1700’s.
MRS. LI.OYD J CLAPPER Mansfield,Chio Sb. has supplied the News with pages of information on her ancestors who represent some of the early settlers of thio. We believe her family line will eventually connect to Matthew
. tzinger. We need a list of the idren and their movements of Henry
N.ftzinger, who is a eon of Matthew, to make the connection.Any help from our readers will be greatly apprec iated.
Mrs. Liggett is active in the Wayne County, Ohio, Historical Society and provides considerable information on the early Nafzgers from Wayne County. Many thanks to Mrs. Liggett for her fine effort.

Hannah. There may have been other children but the above named children are to be found in Vir ginia courthouse records. Some may have remained behind although later York County records do not seemed to indicate this fact.How— ever, Virginia courthouse records would seemed to indicate that the migration of Peter’s family began just a few years after his death and continued until 1800.
One son of Peter; SAMUEL bought land in Botetourt County, Vir ginia from 1788 to 1824. He ap peared in the 1810 Census with a family of six children. The 1820 Census would seemed to indicate a family of five sons and three daughters. By 1830 Census, it would appear that only two daugh— era remained at home and the rest had moved from home. Samuel died in 1839. His children: Elizabeth Bilbro, Mary Nace, Polly Nace, Isaac, Abra Sally and Sarah.
Peter Noffsinger, Jr. must have been born around 1745 and died in 1795. He was married to Salome. Peter, Jr. must have been the first Noffsinger to enter Virginia He bought land in Botetourt Cou nty in 1784. Children: Peter III, Jacob, Hannah Snider, Elizabeth, Polly, Heddy, Cadey, Susan, and Maria.

Peter Nofsker emigrated to America in 1749. He sailed on the ship
“Phoenix” from Rotterdam and arrived in the port of Philadelphia. It would appear that he was born somewhere between 1700 and 1710. He was married to Sophronia Wise in Germany. He was naturalized in 1771 at Baltimore.After landing in Philadelphia, Peter settled in Berwick Town ship, York County, Pennsylvania. The land was in Lancaster County from 1729 to 1749, in York County from 1749 to 1800 and today, part of the land is found in Adams County and part in York County, Pennsylvania.
Apparently, Peter lived his entire life in Berwick township and died in 1783. He is probably buried somewhere in that area although several searches for the burial site by the publisher have failed to locate the exact site.
According to the records of Mrs. B. J. Hundley of Reston, Virginia, his children are Peter, Jacob, David, John, Samuel, Daniel, Joseph, and
A U. S. national Nafzger Family Reunion during the bi—centennial year or 1976 is in the talk stage to see if such an event can be arranged or has any merit. It would be held at a central location in the United States so that transportation would be convenient to Nafzgers through out the U.S. Probably, the site selection should include a camp site for those who may wish to use campers as well as have motel—hotel accomo dations nearby.Sometime during the sunnier months would be an ideal time for such an event so that Nafzgers throughout the U.S. can use their vacation time. Perhaps, such an event should run for a week to allow time for the various Nafzgers to meet and get to know each other.If the idea is favorably received, I suppose the first order of business would
‘ to search for a Nafzger who would be interested in serving as Chair— n of the celebration. The chairman, in turn, could select his work ing comeittees. The News can offer some special issues to communicate information and announcements of the committees. We are open for sugg— geetions so write and let us know what you think of the idea.

Mrs. Alice Beck of Sand Springs,Qk writes The Muhlenberg County, Kentucky
will book III,page 3 & 4 lists the will of John Noftsinger, dated 1833, mentioning among others his wife, Mary, daughter of Hannah Coffman, and grandson Benjamin Coffman. According to her grand father’s records, Hannah Coffman is the daughter of Benjamin Coff— man and Hannah Nofsinger. Shf’ further writes that he left no dates for either person but did state that HannahNofsinger is the daughter of a Nof singer who marr— a Spangler. We need additional information to clarify the line age of the Nof singer who married a Spangler. Can you help?

Persons naturalized in Pennsylvania 1740-1773
The Bible of Jacob Naftziger, who entered the United States in 1750, has been found in Wilmington, Ohio. It is now in the hands of Willard Noftsger who is probably a sixth generation of Jacob. The book is over six inches through, a foot and half long by a foot wide and is bound in leather covered boards, which are in turn bound and tipped with brass. The clasps are of heavy leather with brass hooks. It was printed in German text in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1536. A family tradition is to the effect that it cost Jacob forty acres of good land in Germany. It was in a ship wreck on the voyage to the new world and had evidently been watersoaked, but it still in marvelously good condition.
We asked Willard to photostat the fly pages of the Bible. Ray Dief— fenbach of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania and Delbert Gratz of the Menno nite Historical Library of Bluffton College, Bluff ton, Ohio have trans lated a number of pages to the old Bible. The translation proved it to be an excellent discovery. His children were listed on the back page.The date of birth of Jacob and Christian as published in the last issue of the Heritage News were confirmed but the list of children listed on Jacob’s will does not check with the list from the Bible. There were other children who may have died prior to the will. There are indications that Jacob may have been married twice. Some of his children were born between 1751 and 1753 and possibly the death of his wife. The rest of his family were born between 1763—1773. Apparently, the Bible was handed to Christian who took over the home farm in Penn— sylvania.Christian passed the Bible to his oldest son, John (Johannes) and it was John who carried the Bible to Ohio.

Vol Ii, No. I	THE NAFZGER HERITAGE NEWS	January 20, I974
Thank you for the interesting newsletter. Your mention of Pal— myra Pennsylvania recalls an in teresting experience of mine. While searching for Gingrich mat— erial, I started corresponding with J.Ammon Gingrich of Palmyra. We corresponded for years but never made any connection between the two families.
Us went to Arizona to spend some time with friends. They were tak— a vacation and J. Asinon remaine a vacation and J. Ammon remained
behind to take care of the house. My telephone rang one evening and it was the hospital i this littis town saying that he had been fotuid ill with a stroke and could not talk. They found some of my letters among his belong ings. I referred hospital of fic— ials to his family in Palinyra.
I had only known him through cor respondence but he seemed very near and dear to me. He was in his 80’s and had planned to stnp here on his way home. But he died o months later, so I lost a ar friend if only by correspon— ence.
Mrs. Dale Stilt
Clay Center, Kansas
The Gingricha are related to Naf— zgers at least twice.Mrs. Stilt’s line is related to Peter Naffziger of Groversheim. The Gingricha of Palayra have inter—married with the gr—gr— grand—daughters of Ja cob Nafziger who entered the cou— try in 1750 on two ocassions.
Congratulations on the Nafzger Heritage News. We enjoyed the first issues and look forward to future editions. Since last comm unicating with you, I can report three additions to our branch of the Nafzger family. Records have been enclosed.
Samuel Nafzger Dedham, Mass.
Our readers will be interested to know Samuel has traced parts . his line to the 1600’s and for Jieven generations.
Enclosed is the information you had requested as nearly as I can compile it from our records. Also, the name and address of our son who is an Ohio resident for your mailing list. We are interested in any additional information you may be able to gather on the Na zgers families. If there is a book published, we would be most interested in obtaining a copy.
Mrs. John 0 Birkey Hopedale, Illinois
There are no plans to publish a book.However, we will try to keep the newsletter alive so that we can tontinue to exchange informa tion on the various family lines. Also, an attempt will be made to update the information on your family line before the next fam ily reunion. We have added con siderable information to your line during the last two months. It is becoming quite complete.
Your hobby of collecting infor tion on the Nafzgers is of great interest to me and I would like to receive the newsletter. Is it possible to get the first two issues already published? I started to fill in the inforaa— ion sheet but talked to my father (who lives in southern Calif orni and he advised me that he had sent the information. So if you will check the form completed by Jay Nofziger of Los Angles, you will find the information on our fan— ily. Keep up the excellent work. Helen (Nofzlger) Krause Rancho Cordova, California
Sorry You are quite right. The information is on file. Jay of California and Frank Nofsinger of Sturgia, Michigan have supplied considerable information on a fam ily line that was a blank a fe’, months ago. Many thanks. The line traces to Valentine Naf tiger who entered the U.S. in 1831.
rbl& of
1p— the risyl•
The following list of questions will help clarify the early heritage of the family of Peter Nofsker who entered the U.S. in 1749.
1. Christian Noffainger (1768—1838) and wife Elizabeth (1770—1845) are buried in the Dadeville Ceinetery,Botetourt County,Virginia. IS THIS
MAN THE SON OR GRANDSON OF PETER? If the answer is grandson --- WHO IS HIS FATHER?
2. Catherine Noffsinger married John Wingard in 1798 in Berkley County, Virginia. WHO IS CATHERINE’S FATHER?
3. Let us move north to Frederick, Maryland. Parish records from 1743-
1811 indicate that Johannes Neuschwanger married Anna Maria Napzingsr in 1780. The marriage was witness by Samuel, Matthias Peter and Cath erine Napzinger. CAN ANY OF OUR READERS IDENTIFY THIS FAMILY?
4. From the same parish records, Rudolph Npppzinger a widower, married Suzanna Kernin, a widow in 1784. COULD THIS RUDOLPH BE THE ONE WHO EN— TERED THE UNITED STATES IN 1749 WITH PETER AND MATTHEW?
5. Jacob Noffsinger lived in Rockinghatn County, Virginia. David Nofain ger was married to Hannah Crumpacker in 1793 in Rockingham County. Prob ably the two were brothers. However, another Jacob Noftzinger is listed as a Virginia Taxpayer (1728—1787, from Annuals of Southwest Virginia) as owning 1329 acres in 1800. WHO IS THIS JACOB
6. A David Noffainger married a Polly Horn and another David married a Polly Stover in 1799. CAN ANY OF OUR READERS IDENTIFY THE FATHER OF EITHER DAVID AND7OR THEIR FAMILIES?

Vol II, No. I	THE NAFZGER HERITAGE NEWS	January 20, 1974
I received No. 3 of the News and it was incomplete. Page six was blank so I couldn’t get the dope on old John.I have been told that he was quite a rugged individual— ist.I have never taken much o an interest in my lineage until I read your paper which aroused my curiosity. When a small boy I was told by one of my uncles that I was a mixture of shanty Irish and slop bucket Dutch. My mother’s maiden name was Kelley which ac counts for the Irish part.
There was an inquiry in the last edition about Naftziger ice cream. I saw a sign advertising it at a small store on the corner of Rt. 68 and 81 in Dunkirk, Ohio. I asked about it and was told that it was made in Napoleon, Ohio. Good ice cream, too.
Enclosed are additional listings to Jacob’s grandchildren. I found an old picture of Albert Wade Naf— tzger and a family group taken in the old homestead in Woodster, I can identify six of them. If you would care to have it, I will forward it to you. Perhaps, some of your readers can identify the others. It is nowhere near as frightening as that picture of John. Please send me another copy and move my name nearer the top of your mailing list and to show my appreciation and ease your frustrations,I am kicking in with a little loot.
Bud Naftzger Findlay, Ohio
We enjoyed Bud’s letter.Our apol ogy for the blank page. It was a poor printing job. Trouble cart at us from all directions.We pur chased some cheap paper which was too thin for the press — and that was the beginning of our troubles. We rushed Bud the rest of the
story and showed our appreciation for his donation by moving him to the top of the list. We will try to do better next time.
If you know a direct line Nafzger descendant who would like to re ceive a copy of the Nafzger Herit age News, send their mailing add ress to: THE NAFZGER HERITAGE NEWS
Enclosed check for the News. I found it very interesting and hope to receive future issues. I found that Daniel Nafzger who settled in Green County is my gr eat grandfather. Thus, I guess I am the fourth generation of this family line.
Walter Nafzger
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
You are right — 4th generation since the family entered the U.S. But parts of this line has been traced by Samuel Nafzger (letter appears in this issue of News) to 1650 and the eleven generation.
Perhaps, we car. ask Samuel to write some stories about the fam ily line when we feature it in some future issue of the News.
I received the first two issues of the Heritage News and enjoyed them very much. In fact, I went to the Hopedale Mennonite Ceme tery the first week and looked for the tombstone of the first burial. We had to make two rounds through the cemetery before we found the site. He was my gr—gr— grandfather. I am sending a small listing (six pages) of the family and I am working on more.
Wilmer A Nafziger Gridley, Illinois
Judging by the information en— enclosed in his letter, Mr. Naf— ziger has an extremly good collec tion of information on his family line. Congratulations.
Enclosed contribution to the News. Foster Naftzinger sent me the in formation on my family line.Since
my father, Oliver (1878—1951) was an only child of James F Naftzin— ger and I am the only offspring of Oliver, the name ends in my line with me. We have two child ren, Dr. John Deam and Mrs. Doro thy Roche. I appreciate Foster’s thoughtfullness for sending me a copy of the newsletter.
Florence ( Naftzinger) Deem Birdsboro, Pennsylvania
I received two copies of the Naf zger Heritage News and enjoyed them very much. Enclosed is my check to become a regular sub scriber. My son advises me he has subscribed.My daughter would like to be included on your mailing list. I am enclosing four differ ent parts of some genealogical in formation we have on record. They include a family tree of our im-’ mediate family and a genealogical record o F. U. Nofziger. Jay Nofziger
Hollywood, California
Jay is a descendant of Valentine Nafziger (1783—1852) who entered the U.S. in 1831. He married Jacobina Schantz. They are buried in a small Mennonite Cemetery just northeast of Wooster, Ohio. Most of their children are found in Fulton County, Ohio the next generation so it would appear tht most of them started their west ward migration soo with Jay’s line ending up in California.Most of the Nofziger spellings are cendants of either Valentine c Johannes, both of which have con nections to Fulton County, Ohio. For example, the Nofzigers found in Salem, Oregon are descendants of Johannes who moved westward via Missouri.
Carol and I received the News yesterday and are quite excited to know that someone is doing so much research into our heritage. This is something that we have been wanting to do for some time. Do you have any further informat ion on our ancestors Noftsgers. I known of only two other male Noftsgers, my father, Frank W., C and his brother, George of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Please put by father on your mailing lists.
We are having trouble tracing
this family line to the one who
entered the United States.We hope .
other Noftsgers will write and ‘
help us with the problem.

Peter Enters U.S. In 1749
Continued from Page One ‘V other son of Peter, JACOB was
orn around 1762 and died in 1808.
According records in Harrisonburg,
it would appear he owned land in
Rockingham County, Virginia in
B	1789. James and Ann Breckinridge
e	of Botetourt County sold part of
their military grant (1000 acres) in Humlenberg, Kentucky to Jacob.
Thus, the family moved to Ken tucky. He was married to Susan Stoner (1764—1836) i Botetourt
County. Children are: Nancy, Mary, Samuel, Elizabeth, Jacob Jr., Catherine, Høni Suoannah, Reb ecca, Sally, Rachel, Joseph, and John.
DMIEL NOFFSINGER another son of Peter, Moved to Kentucky with his brothers, Jacob and John. He had one daughter who married Wil son Turner.
Dr. JOHN FFSINGER is the third son of Peter to move to Muhlen— berg County, Kentucky. Like bro ther Jacob, He too, purchased a part of the military grant from the Breckinridges of Botetourt
S oty, Virginia on the Mud River Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.
John was born in 1755 and died in 1835. He was from Franklin County, Virginia. He had a family of dau ghters, Hannah, Mary, and other children whose names are not known and one son named John.
There must have been another son named JOSEPH who died in 1815. He was married to Betsy who died in 1836. The children were young when he died. Little is known about the movements of his child ren but it would appear that they could have been named David, John, Wilhiam,Joseph and perhaps others. There is no available information on daughter, HaNNAH NOFFSINGER,to date.
A great deal of the above infor mation on the children of Peter who entered in 1749 is in the for mative stages and stand to be cor— hg rected if proven otherwise. Some
of the information has been put e together with only a thread of
and	pvidence which is only slightly
tter than no evidence at all.
hope our readers will join to—
tlier to help clarify the early
teritage of Peter Nofsker’s fain
I certainly enjoyed the July 4 issue of the Nafzger Heritage News. I was particularly interested in the Christian Nafziger (100 on the chart) which shows both my father, Levi Sutter (436) and my mother,Alma Nafziger(400). Christ ian must have put longevity in them because my father was 86 to day and mother was 82 last Sept. They celebrated their 60th wedding anniversity last Christmas.
Dr. M. Willis Sutter Rantoul, Illinois
Old age is evident throughout the Nafzger families. It seems to be a family characteristic to live to a ripe old age.Congratulations to your parents on their 61st.
We hope other Nafzgers will write the News of other long marriages.
We enjoyed the Heritage News and forwarded our copy to our son who will enjoy reading of the family. My husband who is 77 years old has been in and out of the hos pital nine times with operations which replace the hip joint. He is getting along nicely, now. The family history I am enclosing are descendants of Moses Nafzinger. My husband had three sisters so Lewis is the only son to carry on the name.
Mrs. Lewis Nafzinger Earleville, Maryland
The above letter is from a des cendants of Peter Nafziger who died at sea enroute to America as did one of his children.He sailed for America in 1827. The widow landed with six children ranging in age from a nine year old to a baby a few months old. The fam ily grew up in the real tradition of the country, a one parent f am— in a society with a language barrier and no possible govern ment help. The family had all odds against them except the de sire to make good———and they did. I have used this true story in many of my talks given in this area because of the beautiful message in it for us to think about.
My father received two copies of the Nafzger Heritage News. It gave me quite a thrill to read about all of my relations.I never knew I had so many. Please keep up the very interesting work. Re quest my sister and me be placed on your mailing list. Also, we would like copies of the large wall chart listing Matthew’s de scendants.
Helen J. Naftzger
Narberth, Pennsylvania
Helen’s line traces to Christ ian Nafziger who lost his entire fortune during the Napolenic
Wars. Christian died in Germany and it was his widow and child ren who emigrated to the U.S. in about 1846. They settled in Wayne County, Ohio. Two other Nafzger families were living in Wayne County at the time.One was Jacob
descendants who had been in Amer ica since 1750 and the other was Valentine who entered in 1831. Helen’s line of her family adopt ed the Naftzger spelling from de— cents of Jacob. The re of her line used the Nafziger spell ing. The family moved westward and did not remain in Wayne County for more than a generation.
Thus far, I have made no attempt to duplicate the various wall charts created for each family line. As soon as I can find an economical way to make duplicates of charts so large, it will be done.
The newsletter was most informa tive and enjoyable to Nafziger members of our line. The story of the meaning of the name (how ever it was spelled) was most in teresting to young and old alike. If you have room for Henry Nsf z ger’s branch (1832—1897), eon of Jacob(l800—1882), I have the line quite complete. My grandmother was an Otto and her ancestors in— several Naffzigers and Nafzigere. Enclosed is a chart starting with my mother. Keep up the good work as we know this is a very time consuming task that has to be for a “labor of Love”.

I was veil pleased with the first two issues of the Heritage News. Enclosed is my contribution so that I will not miss the next issue. I did not find my family line in the first two issues but hope to find it in the future. I have been trying to trace the line for some time but I can only take the line to Peter Noffsinger my great grandfather who is bur led in Atchinson, Kansas.
Dean Noffsinger Hays, Kansas
We encountered a dead end in tracing Peter Noffsinger of Atch— inson, Kansas. We hope some of our readers can help us with this line. I am almost certain you are a descendant of Peter who en’ ed America in 1749 and Is featur ed in this issue of the News. Here are some of the Noffsingers who moved westward after being born in Botetourt County,Virginia.
PETER NOFFSINGER — born about 1780 and died in 1859. William and Mar tin are probably brothers of Peter. Peter moved from Pennsyl vania to Frederickburg, Maryland to southeastern Ohio and finally to Missouri (Nodaway County). His wife’s name is Fraults. A few o the children must have been Fran ces, William and Wesley.
JOHN SHAVER NOFFSINGER was born in 1833 in Botetourt County, Vir ginia and died in 1860. He marr ied Elizabeth Trout in Roanoke County, Virginia. He moved to Cedar County, Missouri in 1856. Children are Mary, George, Julia, Sarah, Charles, Margaret, Newton and Susan.
DAVID C NOFFSINGER appears to be a brother of John Shaver. He was born around 1795 in Botetourt Cou nty, Virginia and moved to Ray County, Missouri in 1845. Appar ently, he stopped in Indiana for a period of time because several of the children were born in this state.
PETER NOFFSINGER (1833—1891) was born in Montgomery County, Ohio.

Enclosed is a donation for the Heritage News. May I suggest you send a form to the Nafzgers to find out who wants the paper mailed? It would eliminate mail ing to the disinterested ones and save some expense.
We just missed you last summer at Centerport, Pennsylvania by a few hours. The Naftzingers from Centerport visited us a few weeks ago and left some more history. I notice Matthew, Edward, Will iam, and Rueben are listed under the fifth generation. I suppose these would be my father—in—law and h-is two brothers. Your paper is very interesting and I am look ing forward to receiving future issues. Enclo is information on our granLlchildren.
tRuth and Edward Naufzinger Gallon, Ohio
The letter raises an important point relative to sub versus donation. The entire pro ject is only a hobby. The inter est in the Nafzger name was corn— pl miscalculated. Letters re questing information arrive daily. The project must be trimmed or continued through some hired help. It is becoming almost impossible for one man and his daughter to keep up with the project at this stage of development.We will hang in for a couple issues to see what should be done.
Thanks for the information on your grand daughters.Edward, Will— jam and Rueben would be your father—in—law and his brothers. I have more. information on their family now.. I believe there is a sister by the name of Ida. I do not have any information on her family or whereabouts.

The interpretation is just one of many that I have encountered. It appears to vary with the period of history. I believe it is import ant to be aware that there are many interpretations. I suppose each individual will believe the one he likes. (I like the sleepy
I don’t know if all the spellings
S ave the same origin. If someone orced me into believing some thing on the issue,.I would think the different spellings would join at some point in history. One of the reasons would be:
Jacob emigrated to America in 1750. His grandchildren migrated to Wayne County, Ohio. Two other Nafziger families, Valentine and christian emigrated in the 1800’s and settled in Wayne County. The Nsf zigers moved from Wayne County to Fulton County,Ohio and shortly after were joined by Johannes Nofziger who emigrated from Ger many. The same can be said for Hopedale where two or three lines live which appear to be unrelated. Canadian Nafziger are found in
and around Hopedale. There are only about two reasons for this collection of Naffzigers, Nafzi— gers, Nofzigers, Naftzgers, Nof— zingers in just two locations.One is they were Mennonites and the
other is they were probably re lated. Both reasons are probably n correct so I can easily believe
‘ hat the 20 names would evenually ‘I onnect to one if we went far
enough back in history.
Jesse L Nofziger (1910— ) is the founder of the Nofziger’s De— lux Ice Cream in 1940 which was most profitable at that period of time. Jesse was the owner and operator of the Nofziger Dairy Store, south of Archbold, Ohio on Rt. 66 on the west side of the street in Lugbill. In 1945, Jesse designed a hand ice cream slicer which cut a quart at a time. He sold some of these slicers but never had it patented. In 1951,he moved to Goshen, Indiana and sold ice cream and groceries in that area for a number of years. En closed donation and information on our family line.
Mr. & Mrs. JESSE NOFZIGER Goshen, Indiana
Thanks for the information—your line leads to Valentine who enter the U.S. in 1831. We expect to feature the line in a future is sue of the News so the information is welcome. You may be interested to know that the wife of Lloyd LaVaugn Nofzinger, a counsin of yours, lives in nearby Elyria, Ohio. Lloyd died in 1960.
Thank you for a copy of the News. Enclosed my contribution for your fine work. Please keep me on your mailing list. My grandfather, James Noffsinger moved his family from Skidmore, Missouri to Wray, Colorado around 1900 and took up homestead there. The Noffsinger name remains prominent in the area yet. My mother will supply you with more detailed information of this particular line.

We believe this line will prob ably connect to Peter Noffsinger who entered the U. S. in 1749. It would appear that there are many Noffsingers from the midwest and northwest part of our country to be added to the long list of des cendants of Peter when they all write. So please forward the data to the Nafzger Heritage News soon.
My aunt just sent me a copy of the Nafzger Heritage News, which I did not know even existed. My mother was a Noffsinger. Her f a— ther was James L Noffsinger (1843— 1909). He married Sophia Mast in
1869 and is buried north of Mount City, Missouri. My mother and all of her brothers and sisters. are gone now. I do not know the names of grandfather’s parents and very little about our heritage
Mrs. Blanche Heineken Effingham, Kansas
Your great grandfather is prob ably Martin Noffsinger who was born in Monroe County, Ohio in 1814. He was married to Matilda Henthorn in 1836. Their children are Rachel, Martha, John, JAMES (your grandfather, Francis, Cas— sey, Mary Jane, Sarah Jane, Mar garet and Peter Craig. We do not know the father of Martin but have strong clues it will connect to Peter who entered the U.S. in 1749. Until we received your let ter, the only Information we had on any of the 10 children of Martin was of Peter Craig who married Sarah Ewer in 1878 and had children: Myrtle,Orpha,Delia, Martin, and Lloyd. We hope Noff— singers who may be connected to this line will write the News and provide us the information to up date and trace the line to the one who entered the United States.
Robert and I have had correspond ence with Alexander Coyle who in vestigates family histories as an avocation. We received some maps of Germany and recent letters from his German correspondents. I am wondering if this information would be of any interest to you for your research project. If so I will be happy to forward them
to you.
