Change of spelling from Eisenhauer (Isenhour) to Eisenhower occured with this generation and is mostly confined to the decendents of this family group. Frederick 's father was 78 years old at the time he was born. he is the Great-grand-father of D. D. Eisenhower.
In the 1820 and 1830 Census, he lived in Lower Paxton Twp, Dauphin Co. Penn. He had moved to Upper Paxton Twp by 1840. In the 1850 Upper Paxton Twp. Census, page #444, his granddaughter Catherine NOVINGER and Elizabeth MILLER (Barbara's sister?) were living with Frederick and his wife. In 1860, at age 66, he were living with son, Jacob Frederick, in Washington Twp near Elizabethville, Dauphin Co.
In 1878, he moved with Jacob and Samuel to Hope, Dickerson Co. Kansas. Catherine and Samuel Pike (Pyke) followed shortly and also bought land near Abilene.

In 1878-1879 a colony of several hundred (Susquehanna River Brethren from Pennsylvania}arrived in the old time corrupt cow town of Abilene, Kan. They brought with them fifteen carloads of household and farming equipment, and more than a half-million dollars in cash. With this stuff they at once began to organize homes and fields on virgin land purchased from the Kansas Pacific Railroad.
The old railhead cow towns of Kansas rapidly died away as railroads extented west and south to where the cattle were raised and civilizaion rapidly erased that era of history.
