Bette,

I am looking for information about a Christian Fuch (Fox) who married Maria Magdalena Rausch Ernstberger about 1754. She was the widow of George Heinrich Ernstberger. They were married in Lancaster co, Donegal twp. They later moved to York county, which became Adams county, They are both buried in the Arendtsville cemetery in Arendtsville, Adams county, PA. Maria died 9 Dec 1802 I know very little else about Christian. Does this fit with anything you have??

Surnames: Keller, Kurtz, Beidleman, Schaeffer, Bauman
I have a wallet size portrait of a George Beidleman taken in Bloomsburg, PA. sometime in the late 1800s which belonged to my grandmother. Sophia B. Bidleman was my grandmother's aunt, a daughter of Henry Gehring Kurtz and Sarah A. Bauman, and granddaughter of John William Kurtz and Anna Maria Keller. Many of the Keller men married wives named Schaeffer. Spelling of Beitleman name varied greatly.

I am looking for information on Valentine Wetzel born in PA in the early 1800s. He may have been Valentine Junior. He married a German-born girl named Rosa and ended up in Louisville, Ky in 1860. He had a daughter named Lillie Barbara who married Abram Akers. Please let me know if you have heard of this family. Thanks.

Bette, I noticed Hoover in your family tree. Do you have any information on a Andrew Hoover who married a Effie Hofnagle Dec. 31, 1849 in Darke Co., Ohio?

I have a woven blanket made for Andrew Hoover and Effie Hufnagle passed down to me from generation to generation.

I have no information on either of these people, but suspect Effie was related to my great-great-great grandfather, either a sister, or???

If you should have any info, I would be very happy to hear from you.

I know the Hufnagles were born in Lancaster Pa., but moved to Ohio, Ill., and our family ended up in Nebraska. Some of us are now in Minnesota.

Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks,
Ruthann Meyer Hufnagle

I am looking for Augustus von Eckardt who married a Catherine Weber. He died in 1825? and Catherine in 1826? She was from Philadelphia and Augusutus was from Germany. Children included William (b.1815), Augustus (b. 1820), Louisa (b 1822), Washington, Mary, Elizabeth and two others. After Augustus senior and Catherine died some of the children moved to Illinois. Family history says the Eckards moved to Illinois from Perry County. Louisa married George Leopard before? coming to Illinois. Elizabeth married a Tolbert Prater. Any help?

I have accepted the Johan Peter Keller family genealogy as written and published in "Pennsylvania Genealogies" by Egle at face value and, being so far away from the localities involved, have not tried to verify the data by documentation other than that. If anyone has access to any of the verification, I hope you will post the documents to the Keller boards on GenWeb. The only part that I have real family records knowledge of is concerning the descendants of Anna Maria Keller and William Kurtz. Some of their relatives include Schaeffer and Bidleman/Beitleman. The families all lived in Lancaster, Snyder, Juniata, Schuylkill and adjacent counties.
