I have a John Mourer born Jan 21 1787 who died in Henry County, Indiana Oct. 5, 1868.This information was taken from his cemetery headstone.According to a later Indiana census, he was born in Maryland, but he lived a good partof his life in Franklin County, PA.He was married to Eliza Kenady (sp.?), and among their children were Nicholas M. Mowrer, b. June 6, 1814; John K. Mowrer, b. June 6, 1817, and Charlotte Mowrer, b. Jan. 23, 1820.
John (1787) was a brother to my 4th great grandfather, Nicholas Mourer/Mowrer (est. 1785-1818), who was married to Catherine B. Kuhn (1789-1868).They married about 1810 and lived in Franklin County, PA.Their children were:Daniel (1811-1884), Jacob (1813-1896), Charlotte (Abt. 1816-1911), Anna Eliza (1816-1902), Nicholas (Abt. 1818-1874), Catherine (1818-1905).Around 1840, Catherine moved with her children and John moved with his children, along with several other families to Henry County, Indiana, where they owned woolen mills for several decades.
I am trying to find the father of my 4th great grandfather, Nicholas, and his brother John, but so far have found nothing concrete.There are too many Maurers/Mourers/Mowrers called John and too few calledNicholas.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
