I'm looking for family of Jacob GRASSMAN family. Jacob emigrated from Baden around 1839 at the age of 9 with his family. Jacob ended up in Pike County, Ohio, however, a Josephine GRASSMAN who also lived in Pike is reported to have been born in PA in 1839. There are Jacob GROSSMANs in Centre and Butler on the 1840 Census. I'm wondering if one of these may be Jacob GRASSMAN's family?? Any information on these GROSSMAN, GRASSMAN would be much appreciated

RODDY, SEIBERT are my Altoona connection. Samuel W. RODDY married May Etta SEIBERT somewhere between Altoona & Shade Gap, Huntingdon Co. PA. They were married abt. 1865. They migrated toward Altoona...Bellefonte. Somewhere in the migration to find a new life they settled down between Shade Gap and Blair, Centre, Clinton Counties to have the family. It has been told me that my father, 3d child, was born in Altoona, January 23 1888. I have written for certificates, but they say the Courthouse burned down and there is no other way to establish his birth. His name was David Wesley RODDY He had an elder brother, Robert Russell RODDY, an older sister, Olive T. RODDY, and a younger sister, Mary E. RODDY, But I cannot establish a certificate for any of them. But do know that Robert was born in Bellefonte. Please help me find out what happened to them after they were married and left Shade Gap? I know they were in Blair County for some years. Thanks for your help. Skippi Memmott - 325 Manzanita Dr.- Chester CA. 96020

Adam LEEVER or LIEBER died in Centre County in 1801. We have a very good list of all his descendants who moved on to Ohio and Illinois. His wife was Catherine some say STROUB and some say SHETTERLY. Both were supposed to be German immigrants but I cannot document them before they appear in Northumberland County in 1779. Any information on Adam or his family during their time in PA or before will be appreciated. Our family has been working on this problem for nearly a hundred years. We will be glad to share any information.
