KIHM, SCHARF posted by Vincent E Falter on Thursday, August 5, 1999

Would appreciate someone with access to St. Bernard Catholic Church records, New Washington, Crawford County could look up marriage of Mary KIHM and Jacob SCHARF, 28 Jan 1856. I am specifically seeking the names of Mary's parents. It is probable that either a newspaper report of the marriage or Crawford County marriage registration would have the same info. If anyone is researching SCHARF and KIHM, I have extensive family data on these families going back to Germany in the 1600s that I will be glad to share. My KIHM data is of all KIHM lines since Mary's parentage is yet unproven.

FOUGHT, MATEER, MATER, SHAWLEY posted by Arthur H. Laube on Wednesday, August 18, 1999

Samuel MATER or MATEER married Rebecca SHAWLEY September 29, 1859 in Crawford County. By 1860 he is in Columbus, Ohio under the name Samuel MATEER which he retains until his death. He works as stationery engineer and machinist for the Pennsylvania RR. Samuel first married to Margaret FOUGHT in about 1849 near Carlisle, PA. He worked on the famous Incline Plane Portage RR at Holidaysburg and later we speculate that he worked for the PRR as they surveyed, laid track and came into Northern Ohio. We think his first wife died or was divorced in about 1859, leaving him with a nine-year-old daughter, Sally/Sarah and he promptly married Rebecca who was also from Carlisle, PA. Any comments about the arrival of the PRR into Crawford County, in the 1850's? Arthur H. Laube 23 Clover Dr. Chapel Hill, NC 27514. zurlauben@mindspring.com

COOVER, COVER, KOBER, SHAFFSTALL, SOLOMON, THOMAS, WILLIAMS posted by Russell W. Coover on Monday, August 23, 1999

SHAFFSTALL, SOLOMON; WILLIAMS, THOMAS I am a descendant of Johannes Dieterich KOBER, who immigrated to Pennsylvania from Gemmingen, Heidelberg, Wuerttemberg in 1730. He originally settled in what is now Lebanon County, but later moved to Cumberland County, about 6 or 7 miles west of Harrisburg, which is in Dauphine County. Many of his descendants lived or live now in the Harrisburg area in both Dauphine and Cumberland. Most of his descendants changed the family surname to either COVER (the English pronunciation of KOBER) or COOVER (as my branch of the family did). Of course, we are now spread all over the US and some descendants now live in Canada. Does anyone know anything on the KOBER line?
