My G-G-Grandfather was Henry Nieswender (Nicewinter, Niswender).He was born about 1821.The first reliable record I can find concerning him is the 1860 Census, in which he is living in New Salem, Wayne County, Ohio with his family.His brother, Abraham was also living with him, and his birthdate from the census is about 1825.Henry married Salinda Portsmand in 1853, and they had 6 children: Sarah (b.1854), George (b. 1855), Catherine (b. 1858), Mary (b. 1864), Charles (b. 1866) and Della (b. 1870).Salinda may have been Henry's second wife, as there were 4 children living with Henry and Salinda who are unlikely to have been Salinda's children: Benjamin (b. 1843), Henry (b. 1844), Nilson (?sp) (b. 1847) and Lucy (b. 1849).
I have been unable to find any link to Henry's parents.Do you have any further information on the Neiswender family that would indicate a link here?Thanks.
