I have been researching for about six months on my family tree and have come across a perplexing problem with a gg grandmother/gg grandfather issue. My great-grandmother, Elizabeth Fisher von Huben's parents were Jacob Fisher and Ruth Helfenstein (spelled a number of ways and I'm not sure of correct spelling). Both of these persons were originally from Winchester in Frederick County Virginia (since then becoming West Virginia in 1867). Lizzie Fisher as she preferred to be called, was supposedly born in Champaign County, ca 1845 and married my great grandfather, Jacob von Huben. They had two sons and a daughter that became my grandmother.
But my predicament is that I have yet to establish without question the vital information on Ruth Helfenstein or Jacob Fisher (or Fischer). I need parental names for both and a list of siblings if possible. I am looking in the Madison County area only because of some info gleaned from Genealogy.com, of several Helfenstein's that settled and died in Range Township in Madison County. Any information would be sincerely appreciated.
