I have some conflicting information, but here it goes. Descendants of Samuel Fetterman (source: family history of J& Connie Redd 6/4/98) have Samuel Marrying Sophia (same source).
They have a Gideon born about 1822 and dying 1888, Indiana County, Pa (the same year that I know my ggggrandfather Gideon died). This Gideon has a son named George E. Fetterman. (My Gideon did not) Gideon was confirmed 6-13-1840 which was traditionally when they wer 18 years old according to church records. This Gideon married a Hanna Findley (My Gideon married Sarah Hill and her geneology confirms Samuel and Sophia as his parents). What a puzzle.
George S (what happened to E?) was born 8-20-1865 and died 1/1/1933 in Pine Twp. Indiana Co, PA This history goes on through Generation no 6 of the Samuel-Gideon-George line.
The conflict for me comes in that my Gideon, I know was married to a Sarah Hill and her geneology lists his parents as Samuel and Sophia.
This George was born 8-20-1865 in Pine Twp Incian Co. and George had a child Ira Fry Fetterman about 1885 in Indiana County PA. Ira marries Emma Pearl Edmiston 5/18-1908 in Clymenr Indiana Co. and they have: Velma Gertrude; George Fetterman marrying Cecelia Mary Uncapher on 7/4/1944 in Heilwood, Indiana county PA. Other Ira/Emma children are Warren; Daniel.
There is a George W. Fetterman, source family history of John P. Yohe who was born about 1864 in PA and he was the son of Simon and Hannah Leiby. This line goes all the way back to Johann Jacob Vetterman born about 1648 in Germany. For this I have 12 generations of information.
Do you think this is your line? I'd be glad to send it to you. Ihave plenty more information in this line. I'm still confused and trying to figure out how to unravel this all. Let me know. Janet
