Rachel's daughter Emma Caroline was my great grandmother.Her father was listed as J.G. Prinz/Printz/Prince though my grandmother insisted it was Prinz.
Rachel was born 25 Sep 1840 in Moore Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania.Sometime prior to 1861 she was in either Lima or Youngstown, Allen County, Ohio where she married? a J.G. Prinz.Emma Caroline was born 03 Oct 1861.
By 02 May 1865 Rachel had married Joshua Leaf in Columbiana Ohio and by 1869 the family was in Ovid, Branch County, Michigan.
Emma Caroline Prinz married Jacob Hurley 01 Aug 1880 in Branch County Michigan.
A relative told me that she'd been to Youngstown and had seen a marriage certificate for JG but didn't know the significance of it because it wasn't a marriage to Rachel. Does anyone know who J.G. Prinz was?
