Kay, I have put the check in the mail for your postage.

Everyone, I have looked thru the Eberhart book and found that it doesn't include the Eberhart family of Huntington County, Indiana.

"The History of the Eberharts in Germany and the United States" by Rev. Uriah Eberhart, 1891. The Reverand was the President of the "Eberhart Family Association" of Chicago Lawn, Illinois. One half of the book is dedicated to the Illinois Eberhart's.

He does include alot of information of the German Eberhardt's:
Eberhard, "The Noble", "The Groaner", "The Mild", "The Young", Henrietta "Duchess of Wirtemberg", Duke Eberhard "With the Beard", Count Eberhard "The Younger, Duke Eberhard III, Duke Leopold Eberhard.

Eberhart Families of America
I will outline tomorrow.

I can do lookups and email scanned pages of the book until someone claims this book. Postage is $4.

Hello Teresa,
maybe You can help me! see p. 106 Rev Uriah Eberhart, eldest child of Abraham and Esther b. 4 July 1821 married Margaret GIESEY in 1845.

I am researching the Gieße > Giesse > Giese > Giesey family of Paul Gieße b. 1685 in ?, d. 1752 in Lichtenau, Hessen / Germany.
One of his gr-sons, John Henry Giese (Johann Henrich Giesse), came to America in 1776, married and finally settled in Berlin, Somerset Co., PA. He was a reformed reverend. and had 11 children. 3 sons and 8 daughters.
2 sons reached adulthood and married:

1. Valentine - b. 1785, d. 1835 married Drusilla SHUGARS 10 May 1825 in Somerset, PA. They had 6 children, gender, name and birthdate unknown. 4 children were still alive in June 1847.

2. John (Johannes) - b. 14 Mar 799, d. 30 Sep 1861 married Elizabeth CABLE. They had 10 children. The 9th was:
Uriah Eberhart GIESEY, not a very common name I guess! Source: Historical & Genealogical Society of Somerset Co., Inc., assembled by Ebor Cockley Meyersdale, PA 1964.
Do You have any additional info on Margaret and is there a relation to Uriah Eberhart?
Thank You for Your time,

thank You so much for Your extremely fast and comprehensive mail! That is very seldom the case!!!

I assume that John Giesey named his 9th child - son - Uriah Eberhart, b. 19 July 1846 after his son in law!

Your info closes another gap, thank You.

Hello Teresa,

while studying the info You kindly supplied a question comes up?

Are Albert G. and Alvin Giesey the same person?

Uriah and Catherine had 4 children:

1. Alvin Giesey, pages 219 and 231
2. Ester Naomi, second child b. 09 Jan 1849, pages 106-107,220 and 231
3. John Abraham, third child b. 20 Jan 1850, page 107
4. Henry Newton, fourth child b. 15 Feb 1858, page 227-228

On page 106 it is said "Albert G. Eberhart, eldest child b. 6 June 1847 etc.

I hope You can clarify this. Thank You again for Your time.
