I am seeking info on the following: Conrad Brandt b.about 1800 in Somerset Co. PA. He then moved to Ohio where he married his first wife, Magdalene Rhinehart. They had 3 sons: John S., Eli and Joseph C. All 3 were born in Ohio.
Conrad then married Martha Hochstetler (from Ohio) in Winneshiek County, Iowa (Decorah area) They had 4 children (that I know of): Henry, Manuel,Martha and Nancy J. All 4 were born in Iowa.
Conrad's son Eli married Catherine Hochstetler in Ohio. They had 9 children: Albert, Jeremiah, Henry Jefferson,Josephine,Ardelia,Susan, Jacob, Charles M. and Willis. Catherine was Martha's sister. (Conrad's wife) Catherine and Martha's parents were Jeremiah and Mary (Forney) Hochstetler. Jeremiah was originally from Somerset Co. PA.
These families apparently originated from Somerset Co., PA., then moved to the Coshocton Co. and/or Tuscarawas Co. areas of Ohio. They then moved to the area of Winneshiek Co., Decorah Iowa, (Canoe Creek) in the 1850's
If anyone has any info on this family I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.Thank you.
