I am Craig Campbell and I am looking for information on a Christian Sager who married a Catherine Longbrake.
Catherine was born in Licking County, Ohioabout 1816, the daughter of John and Mary (Hiestand) Longbrake. A marriage record states Catherine Longbrake married Christian Sager in Licking or Fairfield County.
In the 1850 census the only Christian Sager that remotely fits is located in Liberty Twp., Fairfield County, Ohio. His wife is Elizabeth and her age matches closely to the known age of Catherine Longbrake.Further she states she was born in Licking County -- which matches Catherine's birth location.
The question is, was Elizabeth the same person as Catherine?? Elizabeth was possibly her middle name -- a name she preferred over Catherine.
Below is all known census information and hopefully someone will connect to this family and shed some light on this Catherine - Elizabeth dilemma for me.
In 1850 Christian was 41born in VA. and a Abraham Sager was living with them, he was 38 a physician and also was born in VA. Elizabeth was 33, children Sarah 11, Abraham 9, John 8, and Christian age 2.
In 1860 they were still in Liberty TWP. Fairfield county Christian Sager age 51 farmer VA Elizabeth age 44 VA Martha 22 OH ((Probably Sarah)) Abram 20 OH John 19 OH George 3 OH
