Surnames: Barkus, Loer, Patterson
Looking for information of Sarah Barkus who married Henry Loer. He was from Germany and came to this country before the Revolutionary War and served in the war. After the war he married Sarah Barkus and they settled in Va. They went to Ohio about 1795 and he died there in Hamilton County 1841. Son Thomas died in Henry Co., IN 1873 aged 86. He married Sarah Patterson of Grant Co., IN. Any information on this family would be appreciated. Nancy

Please contact me at regarding this family. I'm not sure if we've corresponded before, but if we have, it's been a while. I descend from Thomas and Sarah (Patterson) Loer through their son, Washington Loer.

I'm doing research on my Bolick families who migrated to Iowa. Lydia Bolick a daughter of David Bolick & Rachel Simmons was born 24 Aug 1838 Des Moines Co Iowa died 9 May 1921 Box Butte, Nebraska married 16 Dec 1868 Des Moines Co Iowa to George W Loer born 1 Jan 1847 Henry Co Indiana died 4 Jan 1920 Box Butte, Neb. They are both buried in the Hemingford Cemetery. I believe this George is the son of Washington Loer of Henry Co Indiana.

George & Lydia had 5 daughters. I have only been able to track spouses for two of the girls.

They lived in Monroe Co Iowa and at some point after 1885 moved to Franklin Co Nebraska & then Box Butte Co.

Thank you for this very useful information. I had no information on George and did not know where he went after he left Henry County. I have updated my database with what you sent.

All my best.
