The reply of Richard Masterson suggests a possibility which is at the end of my knowledge of my line. I would most appreciate any possibly relevant info on the Johann Gottlieb Easterday 8-31-1816 born in Germany and Died in Valparaiso Indiana referred to by Mr Masterson.
My knowledge goes only to a Gottlieb (Easterday/Ostertag?) who supposedly came to Wayne COunty, Ohio in 1838 from Germany. I can supply mostly "handed-down" of line from there forward.
