Mary Ellen Ehrhart who md. Dr. Samuel Dodds Meriwether was a niece of my grandfather Jacob Ehrhart, who also lived in Maries Co. until after the Civil War when he moved to Howell Co.MO.A joke in the family was because grampa was a bit younger than this niece! (He b. 1838 Madison Co, IN & she b 1837 IN/IL.) Jacob's father Peter had md twice, Mary was born to Peter's 1st son John Ehrhart; so John & Jacob were 1/2 brothers. Mary had triplets among her 10 children; she also had several full siblings as well as some 1/2 siblings.
They are a goodly part of my 2012 book "EHRHARTS of York Co, PA, Descendants of J. Wilhelm Ehrhart & A. Catharina Shreiner."Wilhelm & Catharina were bothimmigrants, Wilhelm in 1741 to Philadelphia, & I have his parents & grandparents in Germany (as well as Wilhelm & Catharina's children, & descendants who stayed in York Co, & some of the others who went west.) Several decades of primary research by many of us descendants.
If someone will tell me how, I would post the index to the book here. E. Bennett
