I just located (last night) my ancestors in Bartholomew County, Indiana.They have moved there from Lebanon Co. Pennsylvania.
This is what I know about them:
Samuel ADAM (b: 1800 in PA) and his wife, Catherine (b: 1801 in PA -- possibly maiden name is COOK)were in Mill Creek, Lebanon Co., PA from about 1809 to about 1854 when they disappeared.Reading probate records and land sales, I discovered that Samuel's older brother, Joseph, and his married sister, Sarah (Mr. Peter BERRY / BURRY / BORRY) lived in Bartholomew County.I reviewed the 1860-1880 census records for German Twp in Bartholomew and found them .. and what appear to be their children or somehow related:
ADAM(S), Joseph and wife Barbara 1830-1870 ADAM(S), Samuel and wife Catherine 1860-1870 ADAM(S), Joel .. not sure how he is related ADAM(s), George .. believe son of Samuel & Catherine 1870+ ACHENBACH, Peter .. son of Samuel and Joseph's sister, Elizabeth who married Peter ACHENBACH and lived in Cocalico Twp, Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania BERRY / BORRY / BURRY (depending on census -- but correct spelling is BERRY), Peter and his wife, Sarah ADAM(s), sister to Samuel and Joseph.
I would appreciate any help on the descendants of these families.It appears Joseph died or moved prior to the 1870 census .. and Samuel died before the 1880 census.
