Query: FINKLE. I am looking for information on my FINKLE ancestors in Centre County. My g-g-grandmother, Susan or Susanna Finkle FOWLER shows up in the 1850 census as the 13-year-old daughter of Jacob FINKLE, Gregg Twp. It appears the entire family later moved to Mifflin County. Jacob was married to Catherine ____; his age indicates he was born 1809. The records of the Zoar Evangelical Lutheran Church, Lebanon PA, show a Jacob born to Johannes FINKLE and wife there in 1809. Family tradition says that Jacob's wife was a CLYMER, related to the George CLYMER of Philadelphia. My research from George forward says this can't be true, but I can't verify that one way or the other. If anyone has information on the Jacob FINKLE family or any CLYMER/CLEMMER families in Centre County in the 1830 to 1850 period, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks very much!

Query: Hello all, First of all let me Thank You for taking the time to read this. A few friends and I are in the process of putting together a family page for the GENSIMORE / GENSIMER family. I'd like to personally invite you to check out the basic information that we've put online. At this time the information is minimal but with time, research and the help from the genealogy enthusiast's everywhere we should have a very nice page. There are quite a few names that are known in the Centre, Blair and Huntington County areas and maybe you will find someone your looking for. We are trying to link this line to the Gensemer line that I am personally related to in Lancaster County. I have some personal research records by a KLAPP and WITTICH who were in touch with a Joseph Gensemer MILLER in 1926 when he was in his 70's. In these records he stated that there was a John GENSIMER who went to Warriorsmark and died in 1833. His will is online and maybe someone will recognize the area or people that were listed in the will. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Have a good weekend. Jeff.
