Hi, cousins...
I'm looking for the parents of George Milhorn, later Milhon, b 1812 in Frederick Co VA, who married Mary Ann Helpbringer in 1835. I know that Milhoans are kin. Any clues?

Francis C. Melhorn was an armourer at Harper's Ferry. He may have been the son of Michael MELHORN, also of that city. Would like to communicate with anyone who has information on this family.

I am a descendant of the Melhorns from Pennslyvannia (Cambria and York Counties). I am trying to verify a connection to a Simon Milhorn/Melhorne/Mehlhorn who was born in 1725 and believed to be a Revolutionary War soldier. Daniel Melhorn was born in York County in 1804. I believe his father was David Mehlhorn/Melhorn, b. Aug 19, 1761, who married Rosina/Rosanna Swartz. David's father is supposedly Simon Mehlhorn/Melhorn, who resided in York County, b. Sep 2, 1725, and married Anna Barbara Dubbs. Supposedly Simon was from Suabia, Germany (South).

I have also seen in Passenger/Immigration Indexes a Geo Simon Melhorne who arrived at Philadelphia in 1754. Have not been able research source records to see if George and Simon were related to Geo Simon Melhorne. Am trying to verify that David was in fact Daniel's father and that Simon was in fact David's father.

I have also seen the following surname spellings associated with my family tree during my research: Melhorn, Malehorn, Milhorn, Melhonr, Mehlhorn, Malhorn, Mealhorn, and Mailhorn. This is first time I have seen Milhoan.

We have definite information back our line to Daniel Melhorn. He married Sarah Conrad in Adams County and had a son named Peter Melhorn who was born Dec 5 1830. Both Daniel and Peter moved to Cambria County, PA between 1830 and 1840. Peter married Ellen Douglass in Cambria County.

Assuming I can verify the lineage, Simon Mehlhorn would have been my GGGGG Grandfather.

Any information you have would be greatly appreciated. I will be glad to furnish you with any future findings on the Melhorn clan.

What is your lineage relationship to Simon Melhorn? Would be interesting to see where the Milhorn surname began. I know my ancestors came from Germany and the German spelling for Melhorn is Mehlhorn. I have also seen where various children of the same father began spelling Melhorn in a variety of ways.

Also what was your source for discovering the name of the ship that Simon and George came to America on?

Hope to hear from you soon

I have a George in our tree. Who's father is Henry. Father John. Father Henry. Father Peter "MULHOLN". Henry's wife decided to change the Mulholn spelling to Milhoan. If this helps I have lots of other details.
PS. I need Peter's wifes name. He was a Seargent in the Revolutionary War.

George I have some remarkable things in our family tree that are soooooo alike. Peter Mulholn is as far as I've gotten and I show him as being a Seargent in the Revolutionary War. I have him in the service in 1777 but I can't find his wife.

I also have Elizlbeth Starkey who married John Milhoan in West VA. I have the move in 1849 in my records too.

I show that Peter had a son named Henry and he married Mary Green. She is the one who changed to name Mulholn to the current spelling of Milhoan.

Hope this helps,

My ggrandfather, John Milhorn only used 1 "L" in his name but his children used 2 L's.
John was born in 1828 in Tennessee and married Ann Ellis 5/10/1851. I can't find who his parent were. Any information you may have would be helpful. Thanks
