Looking for John Herr's parents. I have a copy of his will dated 11 Mar 1826. His son John, also my grandfater, married Magdalena Shearer. They moved to Ashland Co.,Ohio around 1840. Their daughter, Elizabeth, my grandmother married George Derr (Dir) and they moved to Bureau Co., IL by 1850. Any help would be appreciated. Irene

My family settled in that area of Ohio. I have a Herr who married Anna Hannah Ersila Howe (Pronounced Hooey). Their daughter Julie Ann (Julian) was kidnapped as a small girl. If any of this is familiar, please contact me. I will look through my paperwork and see what else I have. Karen

I believe John Herr of Green twp had a son Michael. My dilemma is: In 1790 two minor children of Fulton Lindsay, d. 1789 in Guilford Twp. chose Michael Herr of Green Twp as their guardian. I have wondered why. They had pleny of Lindsay relatives in the area. Could their mother Jane Fulton Lindsay have married Michel Herr?? Some of the Fulton Lindsay kids seem to have lived in Lurgan and Southampton twps after they were grown. thanks, Brenda

In John Herr's will dated 13 Mar 1820 , he died before 14 Mar 1826 he names son's Michael. John, Martin, Henry and daughter Anna Rife. These children were from a first marriage. He names wife Magdalena and nine children, Mariah "Maria", Freny " Feronica", Samuel, Magdalena, Elizabeth (my line), Christian, Abraham, Jacob, and Peter. I'm sorry but I have no information on Michael. I do have information on the nine children with wife Magdalena. Irene
