MYERS, SPANGLER

My great-great-grandfather was Jacob Myers (June 6, 1815-May 9, 1873), born in Germany?, who married Caroline Leoffler (May 6, 1819-August 12, 1887), born in Germany?. Am searching for parents and siblings of each. Both are buried in Riverside Cemetery, Franklin County, Ohio. Their son, George W. Myers (1853-1914), was born somewhere in Indiana. They moved from Indiana to Franklin County, Ohio between 1853 and 1874. Pasted in the front of our Myers family bible is the following obituary dated 1915. Can you identify this person? "SPANGLER. --- Mary A. Myers was born in Wells County, Indiana, June 24, 1840. At the age of eleven years her parents moved to Fairfield county, Ohio, where she grew to womanhood. In 1860 she united with the Evangelical Lutheran church at Stoutsville, Ohio, and has ever since lived a Christian life. October 21, 1860, she was married to Daniel W. Spangler also of Fairfield County, O. On November 10, 1862, they settled on the farm in Freedom township, Henry county [Ohio] then a dense wilderness and which place has since been their home except a residence of two years in Napoleon when her husband was sheriff of Henry county...She departed this life March 29, 1915...Burial at Forest Hill cemetery." 1880 census of Henry County, Ohio lists her parents as natives of Prussia. Family bible also contains a newspaper clipping dated 1930, congratulating the 60th wedding anniversary of William and Elizabeth Myers of Franklin County, Ohio. Willaim Myers (1844-1930) and Elizabeth Dukes? Myers (1851-1932) are buried in Franklin County, Ohio. 1880 census lists William Myers as a native of Indiana, and his parents were born in Wurtemberg (Germany). 1860 census of Wells County, Indiana shows a Christian W. Myers, Jefferson Township, age 30, born in "Wertemburg".

BALL, FOREMAN

Looking for information on Loma Ball Foreman, her husband is Simon Foreman, they were Married Feb. 4, 1877. They had four children: Ora Pearl (B.1881 D.1958,; Allen, Marion, Clyde, and Ray. I have no information as to where they went. Ora was my grandmother. Loma's mother's name was Saloma. We believe she was part Indian or her mother was. Barton Ball married Saloma in Wells County in 1849. Was Barton married previously to a Sarah McDaniels? Or by some strange reason be the same person? I have records of Sarah and Barton's marriage. The 1860 census shows a Barton Ball at age 37, Salome age 33. Their oldest child Sarah J., was age 10, the youngest child, Salome, 6 months old with a total of 6 children. Note different spellings. The mother and daughter had the same name, but they never spelled them same way. My great grandmother went by the name of Loma, athough her given name was Salome(sp?), and was buried as Loma. I'm also interested in history of Poneto. My Grandparents Singer (Wm. Sr. and Jr.) moved to Wells Co. in 1866 from Phil., Pa. Singer Sr. bought land in 1840 in Wells Co.

SWANK

I'm rather new at this although I'll be 70 this year. I'm trying to find information about my grandparents. All I know is that my father and his twin sister were born in Bluffton on either January 30 or 31, 1896. His name was Ronald Earl Swank, and his twin's name was Reta Swank (that is the correct spelling). Their fathers name was Will (or William Swank, and I'm trying to find their mother's (my grandmother's) maiden name. I could have been Coats but I'm just not sure. She went by either Ella Swank or Nancy Ellen Swank. Will Swank died in Marion, IN in 1930 and Ella Swank died in South Bend in 1960. Ronald died in South Bend in 1971 and Reta died (I don't know where) in the flu epidemic of 1918. Any help or ideas as to where I can look would be appreciated. Many thanks. Update: Hi - I found some more re the SWANK namd in Bluffton. My father, Ronald Earl Swank, was born in Bluffton on Jan. 31, 1896. His father was William Swank and his mother was Ella Davis. According to the health department in Bluffton, there is no record of Ronald's Twin sister's (my aunt Reta Swank) birth. I do know that I have photogtaphs of both of them taken in Carthage, Tennessee in about 1908, and that I've been told that Reta died in the flu epidemic of 1917-18. So far I've been unable to find anything more about William Swank or Ella Davis - birhtplace, date, etc.

They had a son, Roy Laverne STOUT, who was born in Bluffton, Indiana in 1902. Jessie and Homer supposedly married in 1901. Jessie was Native American, of which tribe, I do not know. Rumor has it that Roy was not born of Jessie, but another woman, as Jessie could not bear children. Jessie and Homer moved from Indiana, to Oregon (Portland, Multnomah,OR) shortly after Roy's birth. Homer owned a bakery in Cannon Beach, Oregon. Roy died in 1964 in the Longview/Kelso area Cowlitz Co., WA. This is all I know.

Mary Elizabeth Eilar, b. 18 Nov. 1857

All had off spring in Indiana. I am mainly interested in the LAUDIG/EILAR connections but would share my information with any descendants of this couple.
