Elias C. and Mary (MAKER) LONG were married 8 Aug 1844 in (Clermont) OH. It appears they only had 1 daughter, Julia Ann LONG, b 1 Oct 1849 (Franklin) OH. Julia m Levi T. NORRIS Jul 1867. The NORRIS family lived in Monroeville (Allen) IN 1880-1900. Levi & Julia NORRIS sold land circa 1900 in Monroeville (Allen) IN which Julia had received from her parent(s), Elias C. and Mary (MAKER) LONG. So I'm assuming the LONG family had lived in Monroeville (Allen) IN at one time. Any info on Elia C. and Mary (MAKER) LONG will be appreciated.

Prior to settling in Allen Co., Ind., Wm. TUCKER resided in Sugar Creek Twp., Greene Co., Oh.. Wm. TUCKER may have resided for a time in Berkeley/Jefferson Co., W.Vir. and Adams Co., Oh.. He was apparently born in Maryland. Am anxious to establish whether or not Wm. TUCKER is the eldest child of my ancestor Walter TUCKER (ca. 1742-ca. 1827). Did Wm. TUCKER have a son named Rezin/Reason TUCKER? Did Wm. TUCKER have other children? What was the name of Wm. TUCKER's wife? Have discovered that info purporting Wm.

Wed Aug 6 19:27:22 1997 KRUGLER, MARTIN - Allen County, IN I am researching the KRUGLER family. Nicholas & Catherine KRUGLER are listed in Perry Twp. in the 1860 census with six sons: Tiewald 17, b. "Elsas"; Nicholas 13 b. "Elsas"; Francis 11, Alphens 9, and Edward 7 all b. OH; and Charles 1 b. IN. There may have been a daughter, Catherine age 15, who married Delphus MARTIN in 1864. I have been unable to find the KRUGLER family in the 1870 census. Nicholas purchased land in 1873 in Section 12 in Perry Township. In the 1880 Census Nicholas is listed as a widower boarding with DELGRANGE family in Eel River Twp. near where my great-grandfather Lewis, who I believe to be the Alphens in the 1860 Census, and his family lived. The oldest son, Tiewald, is probably the Civil War veteran buried at St. Vincent's Cemetery, Fort Wayne. The second son, Wm. Nicholas, settled in the Anderson, IN, area; Francis (Frank) and Edward both settled in Van Buren County, MI. I have no idea what became of Charles. Does anyone have any information on these KRUGLERS?

BURRY, GOTFRIED, GOTTFRIED, WELTY posted by Karen Lint on Thursday, January 1, 1998

Mon May 26 08:52:01 1997 Am looking for information about my great grandmother, ALBERTA A BURRY and her ancestors. I know that she was born February 12, 1871 in Subo/Souboz/Sonceboz, Switzerland, and that she came over to the US with her parents and siblings in about 1883. She married CHRISTIAN C. WELTY 12-2-1892, probably in Fort Wayne, IN, but they were living in or near Pandora, OH at the time, so that is unsure. ALBERTA A. BURRY and CHRISTIAN C. WELTY lived in Fort Wayne and both died there; he is 1941, and she in 1961. Her older brother, GOTFRIED married Christian's older sister, MARY. I believe that her parents' names were GOTTFRIED and ANNA BURRY, but I do not know Anna's maiden name or Gottfried and Anna's dates and places of birth, death, marriage, or those of her siblings. If anyone can help or would like to trade information, please contact me.

MEEKER, PERRY, RANDALL, RANDEL posted by Colleen Flannery on Wednesday, January 7, 1998

PERRY, Levi Oliver PERRY, HENRY E. Seeking information on early pioneer and settler circa 1825 of Kosciusko, Allen and Noble Cos., Levi O. PERRY and particularly his son, Henry E. PERRY. Levi O. PERRY b. abt 1790 Wales, emigrated to the US in 1803 with his father and family, and was one of first settlers in Delaware Co., Ohio. He married Elizabeth MEEKER there and had first son, Benjamin Francis PERRY in 1818. (No solid death dates are available on any of these individuals -- only last known census appearance.) The family left Ohio for Indiana some time after that, and son Henry E. PERRY was b. Indiana in 1823. Henry E. PERRY returned to Delaware Co, Ohio, at some unknown time where he had many relatives, and married his widowed older first cousin, Jane PERRY RANDEL/RANDALL (b. 1817 in Delaware Co. Ohio to Robert PERRY, Levi's brother) in 1844. She had two children by her first marriage, Martha RANDALL and Eden RANDALL, and had a son by Henry E. PERRY, who was also called Henry or Harry PERRY. (All these Henrys are not to be confused with Jane PERRY's grandfather -- father of Levi and Robert -- Henry P. PERRY or with Jane's younger brother, Henry PERRY who married a LAVENDAR.) Written accounts claim that Henry E. PERRY and Jane PERRY RANDALL PERRY returned to northern Indiana. This may be where their son, Henry/Harry, is born. They may have lived there for 8-10 years, before moving to Iowa where dau. Martha RANDALL married in 1853. (Henry E. And Jane appear to have died in Iowa, his date unknown, hers in 1894). Am missing all information on Henry E. PERRY and his family during their years in Indiana. Colleen Flannery Alexandria, VA

BROWN, CORDELL, GEISS, MITCHELL, SCHERER posted by Deborah S. Avelis on Wednesday, January 14, 1998

I am searching for additional information on the family that adopted my grandmother, Lelah Miller, about 1903 from the Allen County Orphans Home. She was adopted by Louis J. (Jacob, I think) GEISS and Mary Elizabeth CORDELL BROWN GEISS. Louis was the son of Jacob and Julia SCHERER GEISS. Family lore has that Louis was on the board of the Orphans Home. He either managed or owned (again, family lore) the Queen and Alaska Coal Companies in Ft. Wayne. Louis and Mary Elizabeth changed Lelah's birth name to Buena Lucille GEISS. I am interested in other members of the GEISS, CORDELL and SCHERER families. I do know that Louis had one sister, Laura who married John MITCHELL in Ft. Wayne. Julia SCHERER GEISS and Mary Elizabeth CORDELL GEISS are buried under the same headstone with Laura buried right near in Lindenwood Cemetery. Can anyone fill in some gaps in the SCHERER family? In the GEISS family, any additional members being researched? Do any of these names sound familiar to anyone? I am willing to share information.
