Searching for John Fazenbaker, Linton Township 1818

Searching for John Fazenbaker, Linton Township 1818

I am searching for John Fazenbaker, born ca 1792 near Barton, Allegany Co, Maryland. He settled in Linton township around 1818. I have exhausted all the records available on

According to the Fazenbaker Family Book written by Walter L. Warnick, "Western Maryland historian Charles E. Hoye reported that John married in Ohio and had 2 children. John's wife was Mary "Polly" Atkinson. Marriage records of Coshocton Co Ohio show that they were married Dec 4, 1818."

He is listed in the 1820 census (named spelled Fasenbaker)in Linton Township (with Oxford Township? written out from his name) with the following information: 1 male age 26-45 (John), 2 females age 0-10 and 1 female age 16-26 (Mary).

The Fazenbaker name has been researched extensively over the years but no further records have been found for John or his family. He is not listed in any other Ohio or in any surrounding states census records.

Any help solving our family mystery would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, John O. Fazenbaker 3rd,

FYI-I am not a direct decendant of John Fazenbaker but of his brother Conrad. They were sons of George Fazenbaker, Hessian soldier during the American Revolution.

Thanks for your quick response. I did see some of this information on ancestry and I believe some of it is related to the John I am inquiring about.

I just had to post a message with the hope that some new information might turn up. The theory that he never returned to Western Maryland is what most Fazenbaker family researchers think.

I appreciate your information!
