Surnames hilkert
Comments:
I am looking for Jacob and Margaret Pennington Gault Hilkert. They were married 22 Oct 1865 in Hancock County, Ohio. They then lived the remainder of their lives in Swan, Noble, Indiana, as far as I can tell. I find them in the 1870 and 1880 censuses there. In the 1880 census it shows her having consumption. Her death was 27 Oct 1880. I can't find them in 1900 at all. They are not in the Swan Cemetery. He was quite a bit older than she was so maybe he died before 1900. He was born in 1821 and she was born abt 1844. Both of them were born in Ohio.
What would you charge to do a search for them?

Earlist ancestor in Noble County Colbert Embrey
Comments:
I am looking for the burial place of my g.g.g. aunt. Her last location was in 1870 census which puts her in 79b-66 which I believe was Albion, Noble, Indiana. Her name was Mary Jane Trussel (nee Embrey). She died 20 September, 1872. I have looked through all the cemeteries listed in the Whan Collection and find nothing on her. She had 2 children that I cannot locate either; Amelia and Wesley Trussel. Is it possible that there was an epidemic and all three died. Mary Jane was married to David Trussel who died in April 1863 in the Civil War and he is buried at Fredricksburg, Va. in the National Cememtery. I am really hitting a wall on this one.

Did they take bodies somewhere else if they had something like "yellow fever" or something very contagious?

Thanks so much for your assistance. Please email me with any questions.

Comments:
I have a relative who fits the description of a HIRAM KING, as described in the book on the history of Noble County.

The paragraph that follows is a quote form that book:

John S. Hooper was raised upon a farm, receiving a common-school education. He was married to Miss Jane King April 19, 1866. This lady is the daughter of Hiram King, Esq., one of the first settlers of Swan Township, and was born in Portage County, Ohio, October 17, 1833.the first settlers of Swan Township, and was born in Portage County, Ohio, October 17, 1833.

(1) Would you have a list of the children of Hiram King?

(2) Would you have a list of marriages involving Hiram King and/or his offspring?

(3) Would you know where Hiram King is buried?

(4) Are there any Hooper relatives still in the area? If so, please feel free to pass my e-mail address on to them.

Thank you.

Surnames Blackman, Spangle
Earlist ancestor in Noble County Elisha Blackman (1801-1872), Jacob Henry Spangle (1794-1868)
Comments:
Any descendants are welcome to email me and we can exchange information. Thank you. The Blackman ancestry is well-known but Jacob Henry Spangle's father is still unknown. He may have been raised by his grandfather, Zechariah Spangle in Cumberland County, PA. Zechariah Spangle moved to Ontario Co. NY after 1810 and died in Ontario County, NY before 1825. Jacob Henry Spangle married Sarah Salome Eby in 1821 in Stark Co. OH. They later lived in Crawford Co. OH, and were living in Marion Co. OH in 1840. Jacob Henry Spangle and his family moved to Noble County, IN in 1848. It is believed Daniel Spangle (1799 to 1879), who lived in York Township, was a brother of Jacob Henry Spangle. Jacob Henry Spangle lived near Wolf Lake in Noble Township in a house still standing.

Elisha Blackman was born in 1801 in Wilkes Barre, PA and moved to Troy, Miami Co. OH before 1825. He married Amy Rollins in Miami Co. OH in 1828 and settled in York Township of Noble Co. IN before 1835. He was elected Noble County judge in 1836. Jacob Henry Spangle's son, Jacob Spangle (1825-1894), married Elisha Blackman's daughter, Julia Ann Blackman (1834-1906), in Noble County in 1852. They moved in 1852 to Princeton Township in White Co. IN, where they lived the rest of their lives.

Earlist ancestor in Noble County Jacob Kline
Comments:
I came to Albion today and was looking for more information on my ancestor Jacob Kline. I really couldn't find much. I was hoping to at least find an obituary for him, but none was found.

I did find the cemetery he is supposedly buried in, the Sweet Cemetery, but there was no tombstone for him, just his wife Melissa (Hatch) Kline. Jacob did serve in the Civil War, in Co. H 4th Ohio Cavalry, NOT Co. B 4th Ohio Infantry as was listed at the library.

There was a flag and GAR marker on his wife's grave, obviously for him. I am really curious as to why no tombstone of his exists there.

Surnames Anderson
Earlist ancestor in Noble County CM (Carl Magnus) Anderson
Comments:
I would like any ideas about finding information on the CM Anderson family. In 1874 the family was renting a farm in Swan Township. They also hade and address of Avilla. They were a Swedish family of 6 - CM (Carl Magnus) and wife Wilhelmina, Christine, August, Frank, John (my grandpa). I have a letter indicating they had a son around 1874 but he died between 1874 and 1878. They also had a daughter, Clara, born in 1875. About 1878 they moved to Kansas. In 1882, CM Anderson abandoned the family in Kansas and I believe he returned to Indiana and is possibly buried where the baby boy is buried. I would like to find where CM is buried and and baby. I think the baby might have been named Carl but I am not sure. Also, where the farm they rented was located. I suppose tax records might locate the farm or if there is an 1875 census for Indiana that could help. Where could I find these? Also, the for the graqves, I have tried online cemetery records but no luck. Any ideas are appreciated.

Thank you,

Linda Colle

Ellen is buried in Swan Cemetary. She came from England in 1854 with her daughters and husband, Isaac. Isaac I believed died at sea. I do not know where he was buried. Ellen's daughter, Hannah married John Grocock, who also came from England. Their daughter, Nettie Jane married Noah Williams. Noah came to Noble County around 1880 with his mother, Matilda Canier Williams (buried in Wolf Lake). His father, William died I think in Stark County, Ohiio between 1876 and 1800. I would appreciate any info you may have on my family. Are death certificates available on Matilda Williams, Ellen Ambrose? Thank you

Comments:
I am so excited to visit Noble County! I will be coming in March. I have been researching for 6 months and now realize I've finally got the right Greiders!!! My Great Grandfather (John Freemont Greider) kept meticulous family records and I found an old family tree that he produced in his own calligraphy. The earliest ancestor he recorded on it were the parents of Henry Greider, whom he listed as Jacob Greider (born 1769) and Anne Bauer. Please send me any information you have about meetings or places I should visit when I come to do further research... March 17-26 2012.
THANK YOU! Sherry Stanford sdstanford@juno.com

Wm is on the 1840, 1850 census in Monroe County, Ohio and on the 1860 census in Noble Co, Ohio. I found records of Wm's estate last Sept 2010, when I traveled from Oregon to Ohio to research my line in the Noble Co courthouse and three other courthouses. The estates of William and wife Julia (McCormick) Hamer were administered separately by Basil R Hamer 1872-74. I have posted many pictures/documents on my public "Hamer" tree on Ancestry.com. Specifically I want to know how William Hamer acquired his land; seems to be part of the "Seven Ranges." Hope this will lead to William's father.

Nathaniel and his wife Amelia both died in 1851. I believe he is my GGG grandfather. I believe he left married descendants in Ohio before relocating to Indiana in the 1840s decade.

I have come across the following newspaper article, which is missing the year. Any information you can give me regarding this article would be greatly appreciated. "DOUBLE TRAGEDY NEAR ALBION Albion, In, Mary 25 Edward Warmer instantly killed his brother-in-law, Charles Badger, and mortally wounded Frank Badger Sunday. The Badgers were working in the field, when Warner slipped up behind them and fired. Charles Badger fell dead instantly. Warner then ran for the woods, but was soon captured. He is insane, it is thought, and when asked the motive of the crime he refused to talk. Warner has claimed that the Badgers tried to alienate his wife's affections. The sheriff had hard work to place Warner in jail, as a mob quickly gathered with threats to lynch the prisoner."

My Heign family heritage includes Norman, Robert, Jacob, and John. John was originally John Hohn of Prussia. He came to America with three brothers to avoid military conscription. Hohn was later changed to Heign. The Hohn/Heign family lived in Waterloo, Kendallville, and Brighton. I am interested in learning more about my grandfather's uncle- who was William, brother of Jacob. William Heign lived in Kendallville.

I am trying to discern the relationship between Elizabeth Andrews and the Engles. In 1870 she is living with Henry Engle and his second wife, Elizabeth Goshorn, and some of Henry's children by his first wife. Is there someone in Noble county who could tell me how to get copies of the probate records and Will?

Comments:
I am looking for a family connection in the 1860 census. I am looking for whatever happened to George Hayes. He is with this family in Noble in 1860 as a 16 year old. Did he join the army? Did he die? Did he move nearby and get married? So many questions and not enough answers.

Did William Hayes and his bride Lavinia Phillips Hayes migrate through Noble County after they were married in Williams County, Ohio?

I have in my possession an Obituary for a Mrs. Eli Cramer; in the Carson City Gazette, Carson City Michigan dated March 11, 1904 and one for the passing of Eli Cramer which states that he was living in Noble County Indiana when he met and married Miss Lucy Catherine Hayes on 12 Dec 1862.
Hers says she died March 6, 1904 at 67 years 11 mon & 6 days. Survived by two daughters, Mrs. Alfred Gardner of 'this place' and Mrs. Harry Allsopp of Niles. Also survived by a brother, David Hayes of Weidman & five sisters, Mrs. Zimmerman of Sheridan, Mrs. Wm. Russell, Bushnell, Mrs. Graham of Muskegon, Mrs. R. T. Huyck of Butternut, and Mrs. S. Arntz of Sheridan.
Looking at the obit summary I can surmise the brother David, and the 5 sisters; Phebe Anabell (Hayes) Zimmerman, Martha (Hayes) Russell, Serena Elmira (Hayes) Graham, Julia LaDora (Hayes) Huyck, and Maribah Mab’ E. (Hayes) Arntz.
I have the death certificates of David R. Hayes, Maribah Mab’ E. Hayes Arntz as well as Lucy Catherine Hayes Cramer, and Phebe Anabell (Hayes) Zimmerman. These death certificates state that Elizabeth Swope is the mother.
What I know is:
Samuel Hayes (07 Jun 1803, Virginia - 29 Aug 1881, Bushnell, Montcalm) married Elizabeth Hannah Swope (22 Jan 1815, Maryland - 07 Mar 1863, Noble County, Indiana)
I have attempted to piece together the children Samuel and Elizabeth from the different censuses.

1) David R. Hayes (04 Jul 1832, Seneca County, Ohio - 23 Nov 1916, Nottawa, Isabella, Mi) Married Almira Esther Swem (16 Jan 1840, Trumbill County, Ohio - 25 Oct 1931, Sherman City, Isabella, Mi) on 28 Sep 1859 in Nobel County, IN

2) William Hayes (1834, Seneca Ohio – UNKNOWN) Married Lavina Leander’ Phillips (born- 1843, Williams County, Ohio – died, UNKNOWN) on 27 Apr 1856, in Williams County, Ohio

3) Lucy Catherine Hayes (31 Mar 1836, Seneca County, Ohio - 06 Mar 1904, Bloomer, Montcalm) Married Eli Cramer (15 Nov 1841, Ohio - 09 Aug 1909, North Shade, Mi) on 12 Dec 1862, in Noble County, Indiana.

4) Phebe Anabell Hayes (04 Jul 1838, Williams County, Ohio – 04 Oct 1913, Sidney, Montcalm, Mi) Married Solomon Zimmerman (24 Apr 1832, Hagarstown, Washington County, Maryland – 19 Oct 1911, Sidney, Montcalm, Mi) on 10 Oct 1854, in Williams County, Ohio.

5) Martha Melissa Hayes (12 Jun 1840, Williams County, Ohio - UNKNOWN) Married William H. Russell (10 Jul 1832, Canada English – 28 Oct 1910, Bushnell, Montcalm) on 22 Mar 1857, in Williams County, Ohio.

6) Maribah Mab’ Elizabeth Hayes (22 Aug 1842, Williams County, Ohio – 07 Jul 1925, Montcalm) Married Sylvester S. Arntz (? Apr 1839, Canton, Stark County, Ohio – 07 Apr 1926, Bushnell, Montcalm) in Date UNKNOWN (1865), Place UNKNOWN

7) George Hayes (About 1844, Seneca County, Ohio – Death UNKNOWN) married UNKNOWN.

8) Rachael Hayes (About 1845, Seneca County, Ohio – Death UNKNOWN) married UNKNOWN.
9) Henry Hayes (About 1848, Seneca County, Ohio – Death UNKNOWN) married UNKNOWN.
10) Serena Elmira Hayes (About 1853, Seneca County – 05 Sep 1832, Ronald, Ionia County, Michigan) married Jacob Graham (22 Mar 1847, Chippewa, Wayne, Ohio - 06 May 1905, Muskegon, Michigan) on 08 May 1870 in Bushnell, Montcalm County, Michigan.
11) Bruce Price Bryce Hayes (03 Jul 1855, Nobel County, IN - 30 Apr 1873, Bushnell, Montcalm) died of drowning, never married.
12) Julia LaDora Hayes (23 Oct 1859, Jefferson, Noble, IN. – 27 Feb 1932, Middleton, Gratiot, MI) Married Ruben T. Huyck (12 Oct 1851, Norwalk, Huron, Ohio – 21 Nov 1926, Carson City, Montcalm) on 03 Mar 1875 in Bloomer, Montcalm

Additional search notes:

Samuel Hayes was born in Virginia 07 Jun 1803. He was the son according to the Michigan Genealogical Death Indexing System, Ledger Page: 349, Record Number: 593, to an UNKNOWN father and to a Catherine Hayes. His death is recorded as of 29 Aug 1881 in Bushnell, Montcalm County, Michigan. At the time of his death he was working as a farmer, he was single/widower, and he died due to the complications of Diarrhea at the age of 78 years 2 months 22 days.
Bruce 'Price Bryce' Hayes, he was born 3 July 1855 to Samuel Hayes (07 Jun 1803, Virginia - 29 Aug 1881, Bushnell, Montcalm) and Elizabeth Hannah Swope Hayes (22 Jan 1815, Maryland - 07 Mar 1863, Noble County, Indiana) in Noble County, Indiana. Following the death of his mother he migrated with his father to Bushnell, Montcalm County, Michigan. According to the Michigan Genealogical Death Indexing System, Ledger Page: 237, Record Number: 50, Bruce Hayes died 30 April 1873 at Fish Creek, Montcalm County by drowning. He was single and worked as a farm hand.

NOTE:
A quick check of the HAYS database shows a Brice Hays b. abt. 1775 in MD, and died in
1846, Noble County, IN; this is a possible as some sort of link to your Hays...His father was
William Brice Hays b. abt. 1749 in VA or PA...

Comments:
Jackson Castator (b. 1838 in Richland Co, OH) and wife Elizabeth Russell Castator (also born same County in 1837) moved their family to Noble County sometime between 1870 and 1900. There were six sons and one daughter. The family came to Noble County when the children were small and after living a short time near Kendallville, settled on a farm near Albion just south of Skinner Lake, where they lived many years.

I am interested in finding out what year they arrived in Noble County.

It is in excellent condition and measures 7"x25 1/2". No one in the family graduated from Noble County. Would your society be interested in the picture?

Surnames Potter, Creigh, Gill, McDaniel, Cobb
Earlist ancestor in Noble County 1844
Comments:
I am looking for information on the Potter and Creigh families who resided in Noble County from 1844 until sometime after 1880. I have several biographies:

Edmond Potter, was born in Onondaga County, N. Y., where he lived until ten years of age, after that in Ohio until twenty-one, receiving a common-school education in Richland County. In 1844, he came with his parents to Indiana, and engaged in clearing land, ect. He was married November 13, 1845, to Sarah J. Creigh whose parents Samuel A. and Lydia A. Creigh located in Wayne Township in 1844. They are both dead. Mrs. Potter is a native of Richland County, Ohio.
They lived on a rented farm in Wayne Township one year; he subsequently went to Michigan, where he drove team on public works, and worked two years for a railroad company in Niles; followed this in building a mill in the Galien woods; then was something over one year lumbering at La Porte, Indiana. He then rented a farm one year, when he bought forty acres wild land in La Porte County, which he improved for two years; then removed to Sparta Township, this county, and rented for one year; purchased sixty-five acres wood land in York Township, built a house and improved.
In three years, sold and purchased eighty acres more; improved this with house, orchard, ect., remaining five years; sold and purchased eighty acres in Elkhart Township, partly improved; sold this in six months; went to Iowa, bought ninety acres, which he cultivated one year; then sold and returned to York Township and bought his former tract of eighty acres; this he cultivated and improved for fourteen years, when the spirit of change again came over him, and he traded for his present farm in section 29, consisting of 170 acres; has a good frame house and barn and other buildings, orchard, ect.
Mr. Potter has served as Constable two years. They have ten children Amanda, Judson, Mary, Edmond H., Paul, John T., Cynthia A., William, Simon B. and Charles W. The parents of Mr. Potter were Henry and Azubah Potter; the father native of Connecticut, and died in Wayne Township, this county; the mother, native of York State, died in Elkhart County, Indiana.

Also the Gill and McDaniel family:

Abraham Gill, one among the thriving farmers of this township, was born in Union County, Penn. His parents, Jacob and Susannah Gill, were natives of the same place, and his mother died in Pennsylvania. Abraham Gill's youth was passed in the states of Pennsylvania and Ohio, attending school and farming during the summer vacations. After leaving Ohio, he came to Wells County, Ind., and purchased 80 acres of wooded land, where he built a log cabin and lived twenty-six years. He then came to Sparta Township and bought 80 acres of land partially improved, and after working it fourteen years he sold it and located on his present farm in Elkhart Township. He owns 104 acres and has improved 80 acres upon which is a good frame dwelling house, large barn, etc. Mr. Gill was married in Stark County, Ohio to Mary McDaniel, a native of Stark County and daughter of James and Sarah McDaniel, the latter a native of Pennsylvania, who, after her husband's death in Stark County, came to Indiana and remarried. Mr. and Mrs. Gill are both members of the Christian Church. They have had twelve children - one, Elizabeth, deceased; the others all married except John, who is living at home; Anne R., living in Fort Wayne; Sarah J., Sparta Township; Josiah G., Perry Township; Jacob F., Michigan; David, Elkhart Township; Mary E., Ligonier; Amos A., Michigan; Adam, York Township; William, Michigan; and Almeda, Michigan. Elkhart Twp

Amos Gill son of Abraham Gill and Mary McDaniel and Mary Potter daughter of Edmond Potter and Sarah Jane Creigh married and moved to Mecosta County, Michigan. They in turn had my g-g-grandmother Emma Lasettie Gill her obit:

Emma Lasettie Gill daughter of Amos and Mary Gill was born March 27, 1871 near Legioner, Indiana and departed this life August 18, 1937, at the age of 66 years, 4 months and 21 days at Marion, Michigan, after a few hours illness.

I can find a very little on the Creigh family, no death records or burial locations so any information will be appreciated.
Vicki

I have been trying to sort out things about Isaac & Elizebeth's parents and children. Might you have some sort of chart that contains this information?

My understanding is that my great-grandfather William, or his son George were the last to live in Ligionier. There may be some on the female side of the family with other last names, but I cannot ascertain that information. I have gone to some of the Noble County gen sites but ran into difficulty with false dates and like names--things get confusing.

Do you need information on the children of George Cavin? (William's son--only child I know of).

Can you get me the contact information of the person that is in charge of that cemtery so I can contact them, to see if we can get this soldier a stone?

First, I want to compliment you on a top-notch website. I wish other counties and genealogy societies would follow your example ! ! I have some old photos that were taken in Noble County (most by Kendallville photographers) but they don't have ID's. Do you have a place where these could be posted in hopes that someone might know who the people in the photos are?

Many of my ancestors came from Noble and DeKalb Counties. I would love to swap information with others researching the same families. I am trying to locate copies of old photos of some of my Great Grandfather's siblings. Please contact me if you have any of these photos in your possession or know of anyone who might have photos of the following individuals.
William Hovarter married Nancy Bixler
Samuel Hovarter married Lucy Bixler
Benjamin Hovarter married Margaret Keiffer
Levi Hovarter married Amelie Colesta Keiffer/Kieffer

The Drowley families migrated to America from Kent, England, UK, before 1755, entering via New York. All made there way to Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Montana and onto Washington and California.

The main core however really settling in Indiana, in Noble County and DelKalb County.

Edward Drowley and his wife Mary Elizabeth Miser are shown on the 1870 Census for Noble County. Edward would have been in Noble County well before the 1870 Census, as he enlisted into the 152 and or 153 Indiana Infantry Regiment, Company C.in 1865.

His commanding Officer being W W Griswold,and were at Harpers Ferry, 1865, attached to the Shenadoah army.

I am also very interested in Kendalville, a George Edward Drowley is mentioned in a book History of Kendalville ?? 1925, published by a company in Minnapolis.

Any help that anyone can give on the Drowley family in Indiana, would be most

Just found your site and so far looks great. Hopeing to find more family info from Noble County. Thanks!!My gr-grandmother Margery Prentice married Andrew Burget Bowlby Oct.13,1866 in Noble County. Andrew died around 1874 of bloodpoisoning. Haven't been able to find where he was buried. Margery's parents were George Prentice and Anna Dingman. She was raised by two maiden aunts(names unknown) so I feel that her parents must have died young but can't find any records of them.

Your Noble County Records page has helped me solve one of the problems of searching for origin of Benjamin Franklin Frazure. Finally in the death records you maintain, I discovered that his name was originally spelled Frasier and that his father's name was William. BF Frazure's brother John Henry, also lived in the Albion area. They came to Albion from Bedford County, PA. My cousin, James M. Prickett, is an attorney practicing in Albion and has office space near the court house.

Congratulations to the Noble Co. Genealogical Society for building this excellent website! Thanks for providing this valuable service to family history researchers around the country.

My 3rd great grandfather, Joseph Henderson (1823-1880) born in Ohio to James and Elizabeth Henderson, moved with his wife, Harriet Rowland and two sons, James T. and George W. Henderson to Noble Co., Indiana about 1854 or 1855. More children were born in Noble County: Semantha, Jonathan (died as an infant) and ChristyAnn. Would like to correspond with anyone descended from this line of Hendersons. My line, James Taylor Henderson, moved to Cloud County, Kansas by 1875.

Many thanks to Judy Richter for her excellent research help, and for sending photos of the graves of Joseph and Harriet Henderson from the Buckles Cemetery!!!

Comments:
Having lived in Cromwell up to 1976 when I joined the Air Force Ive had the opportunity to travel and live all over the country, from Calif.,to Fla.,to Louisiana,and now in Houston,Tx where as a single dad Im raising a little girl whos had alot of medical problems. I choose to live here because the Drs. and Hospitals are the best. No matter where I live though, Noble County and Cromwell/Ligonier are home.
In June of 2002 I lost an older half brother William "Wild/Bill" David Bonar of the Central Noble area, and in June of this year my father Merl Donald "Don" Galloway of Cromwell/Ligonier suffered a massive stroke.
Realizing how much family information that has been lost because of these situations Ive wanted to get as much info together as possible to pass on to my 3 daughters.
Twenty-five (25) plus years ago I started a Geneololigy search on my family. Your facility, and the library in Fort Wayne gave me a ton of info, unfortunitly its been missplaced or lost.
I tell my two older daughters (13 & 15) about their family history: Their Great-Great Grandfather on their mothers side was full blooded Cherokee, their Uncle Bear (Vern) and I were post Veitnam vets, Dad was a Korean war vet, their great grandfather on my side fought in World War I, and our Great-Great...ect. Gandfather fought in the Cival War. We evan had a couple of Great-Great...ect relitives who were fur trappers in the Indiana and Ohio area, who loaded up a barge with their wares and floated it down the Ohio River to the Mississippi then to New Orleans,to sell. The cool part about this is when they were done they walked home! Ive driven from New Orleans to Indiana many times but cant imagine walking there.I cant get my daughters to walk across the street to the store.Come to think of it ,living in Houston Im not sure I want them to. As you can tell weve had a colorful past. It would be a shame to lose this history.
Thank you for letting me ramble about our little part of Noble County, anything you could do to help steer me in the right direction would be appreaciated. Thanks again: Donald Edward (Don) Galloway

He was married before to Theda Jakobs Ennen. They emigrated from Wirdum, East Friesia, Germany to Illinois in 1892. He may have moved to Indiana sooner than 1907, but Andrew was still in Iroquis County Illinois in 1904 when his first wife died.

Several of Their children, Andrew, Elsie, and John married into the Knafel family.

I'd like to hear from anyone who has information on these families. I can share information about Andrew's children in Illinois.

Earlist ancestor in Noble County Edward Drowley Before 1865.
Comments:
The Drowley families migrated to America from Kent, England, UK, before 1755, entering via New York. All made there way to Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Montana and onto Washington and California.

The main core however really settling in Indiana, in Noble County and DelKalb County.

Edward Drowley and his wife Mary Elizabeth Miser are shown on the 1870 Census for Noble County. Edward would have been in Noble County well before the 1870 Census, as he enlisted into the 152 and or 153 Indiana Infantry Regiment, Company C.in 1865.

His commanding Officer being W W Griswold,and were at Harpers Ferry, 1865, attached to the Shenadoah army.

I am also very interested in Kendalville, a George Edward Drowley is mentioned in a book History of Kendalville ?? 1925, published by a company in Minnapolis.

Any help that anyone can give on the Drowley family in Indiana, would be most welcome.

Looking for information on the Diehm family of Noble county. Anna Catharina Diehm, born 1814 in Baden, Germany, married Peter Weimer in 1836 in Columbiana County, Ohio. Shortly after their marriage they settled in Noble County. Seems likely that she was perhaps a daughter to John Christopher Diehm, who was born in about 1774 on Germany and settled in Wayne Township in Noble County. Anyone have any ideas on this?

Earlist ancestor in Noble County 1850's?
Comments:
Thanks for putting so many records online.

I am researching the Vanderbosch/Stoeckley family,
William Vanderbosch married Louisa Wessel(?) pre-1860.
After William died, Louisa married his brother, Frederick.
(in Avilla and Garrett areas).

My "brick wall" in Noble County is Louisa Wessel's mother, who is believed to have died 1850's in Noble County. Sorry, I don't know her name. Is she buried in Noble Co?

Son Herman married Magdalena Stoeckley.

I am willing to share my info, and always interested in collecting more.

Thanks.

My Felix Grimes was born about 1797 (probably in VA). He lived in Ross Co., Ohio at the 1840 census. He moved to Perry Twp., Noble Co., Ind about 1844 and was there for the 1850 census.

I'm still trying to determine who his father was and am seeking any of his descendants.

I was born and grew up in Noble County, graduating from Kendallville High School.

Comments:
My gggrandmother, Lydia(Rouk)Wineland, was listed on your 1870 census under the misspelling of "Wyland". Her husband had died in the Civil War in 1865. She and her children lived in Washington Twp. Several of her children were married in Noble Co, including my ggrandfather, George Wineland. He married Mary Elizabeth Grimes on 9=14-1874. My grandfather, Wm Santford, was born in Cromwell, in 1880. Some of the family spent their lives in Noble Co, and are buried at Salem Cemetery. Others migrated to Carroll Co, Ind.
I have prepared family group charts and pedigree charts to attach and send to you shortly.
