Can anyone help with a small problem i've run into tracking John CASEBEER who is found in Iowa censuses in 1840 and 1850?
In 1850, I've been informed of the following entry: 1850 Wapello Co., IA, Dist. 13, 23 Nov.: #1265 John Kazebeer, 61 NJ Enoch, 29 PA Perry, 19 OH Andrew, 13 OH
This looks like it might be the same family as the 1840 entry: 1840 Iowa Territory, pg. 275: John Caseber Males: One under 5; two 5-9; two 15-19; one 50-60. Females: One 10-14; one 30-39.
Now, my question is whether this is the same family that Ms Kemery cites in her book and which is on Delna Powell's tree as:
ID: I5605 Name: John Casebeer Surname: Casebeer Given Name: John Sex: M Birth: 20 Nov 1802 in Of, Somerset, Pennsylvania, USA Death: 29 Jun 1883 in Of, Somerset, Pennsylvania, USA
Father: Absalom John Casebeer b: 2 Oct 1784 in , Somerset, Pennsylvania Mother: Elizabeth Schmucker b: 18 Apr 1782
Marriage 1 Mary Boyer b: 27 Jan 1803 in , , Pennsylvania
1. Jonathan Casebeer b: 28 Aug 1822 in Of, , Pennsylvania, USA 2. Nancy Casebeer b: 1820/1825 in Of, , Pennsylvania, USA 3.Enoch Casebeer b: ABT 1821 in , Somerset, Pennsylvania, USA 4.Absolom J Casebeer b: 15 Mar 1829 in Somerset Twp., Somerset, Pennsylvania 5.Elizabeth Casebeer b: 1831 in Somerset Twp., Somerset, Pennsylvania 6. Perry Casebeer b: ABT 1831 in , Meigs, Ohio
I wonder only because the birthdates for both Enoch and Perry match and think this should be quite a coincidence if they are different families. BUT, then John either lied about his age in two censuses, or Kemery has a mistake.
Can anyone clarify or perhaps shed light on what Kemery claims as primary sources (if any) for this family?
BTW, a John Kazebeer is living with Solomon in 1860 it appears. (see Holland thread below).
