NOTE: A 650+ page book entitled "FOR POSTERITY'S SAKE: KOCHER-BURKHOLDER HAUBACH-STOTTLEMYER ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANTS" is now available. Contact me at my e-mail address to order.
I am researching both my husband and my parents' ancestries. Frank's are: LUSK-STEPEHNS ELLIS-BURCHETT/BIRCHETT. We'd like to find more ancestors and "cousins".
---KOCHER: Looking for KOCHER-HÄCKER ancestors in/near Ditzingen, Germany before 1742. iN 1817 my KOCHER ancestors departed from Markgröningen, Germany; arrived in Philadelphia. Settled in York Co., PA;later moved to Clark & Preble Co., OH, beginning 1847. Some KOCHERs remained in PA while others moved west to OH,IL,KS,CA,etc. 1875 to present.
---MCKEE: Thomas, b. 1755 in York Co., PA now Adams Co.,PA. Son Thomas Franklin, b. 1810 and d. 1870 in IN. My great grandmother, Mary Susan, b. 1852 in PA and d. 1936 in OH. She married George Adam KOCHER 1875 in Darke Co., OH. Need information prior to Thomas.
---BURKHOLDER: Joseph - Looking for Joseph's ancestors. He was b. abt. 1783 in PA; was in OH, 1838; Whitley Co.,IN, 1860. His wife was Elizabeth Miller. Joseph's son Hiram, b. 1838 in OH m. Martha Esther BROCK 1861 in Whitley Co., IN and later moved to Darke Co., OH. abt. 1879. Need to find Joseph's birthplace and parents' names. Also, have no data on Martha and the BROCKs.
---HAUBACH: Ludwig (Louis) HAUBACH, b. 1825 in Fleisbach, Germany is my great grandfather. He was in New York City 1870 census as Louis HAUBACH with wife Elizabeth. Louis' son Christian Henry HAUBACH is my maternal grandfather. Looking for passenger list information for Louis and Elizabeth KLEIN. Their children were born in NYC(or Long Island) beginning 1865: Mary A. HAUBACH SICKEL, Augusta K. HAUBACH ANGSTMAN, Christian Henry, and Elizabeth A. HAUBACH KERN. Would like to make contact with Mary, Augusta, and Elizabeth's descendants. Have more information about ancestors in Germany and cousins who still live there.
---STOTTLEMYER: Looking for David STADELMAYER/STOTTLEMYER's (b. ca. 1732) birthplace and ancestry in Germany. Some report he was born in Munich?? David first settled in York Co., PA abt. 1750; Frederick Co., MD abt. 1758- The early families were so large, that my information does not include all - but I have MANY.
---LUSK: James, b. ca. 1836 in AL according to Coffee County, TN Census; however some records indicate TN. His wife was Mary. Researching parentage & locations. Son Hiram, b. 1858 married Sarah "Sallie" Jane STEPHENS in Coffee Co., TN and moved to Dexter, Stoddard Co., MO ca 1885. Lived there at time of death.
---STEPHENS: Mashack, b. 1796 in TN. Known to be in Coffee Co., TN. Researching for ancestry and locations.
---ELLIS: Ira, b. ca early 1830's in VA. Ira is buried in Cummins Chapel Cemetery near Pollard, AR; son Greene Francis b. 3-1852 in TN and m. Levina Caldonia BIRCHETT in Clay Co.,AR 1873. Ira's son G.F's death certificate (informant: G.F.'s son, Rev.Greene Robert(Robb)Ellis)indicated that Greene Francis' mother was Vivian PARKER. Questions?? An obit in Piggott, AR paper for a Rev. Robert Stephenson ELLIS (1853-1940) indicated his father was Ira ELLIS & mother Martha Jane FLOOD. Can't determine whether we have one or two Ira's in the same time period who had children who lived in/near Piggott, Arkansas.
---BURCHETT/BIRCHETT: Have strong belief John BURCHETT (1850 Census,McNairy Co., TN) is father of Dennis BURCHETT, b. ca. 1820; also John b. ca. 1829 & James b. ca. 1817. Dennis is father of Levina Caldonia BIRCHETT. Dennis' family moved to NE Arkansas. Need birth and ancestral information for John BURCHETT.
