I'm updating my Reidenbach information. In my previous post I thought Katharine Reidenbach was a gggg-grandmother, but not so! Corrected information is as follows:
Maria Elisabetha Reidenbach, my ggg-grandmother was christianed 5/8/1825, child of Philipp Heinrich Reidenbach and Maria Elisabetha Sckaer in PR, Rheinland, Baerweiler, Evangelisch-Lutherische.
They came to the states on the Ship Ville de Lyon on 7/13/1839 from Havre:
Philip Reidenback(h), age 52, from Hesse
Maria, age 37
Maria, age 14
George, age 17
The Van Wert Cty., Harrison Twp., Ohil 1840 census has Philip Ridenbaugh (Reidenbach) with a male age 15-20, a male age 50-60, a female 15-20 and a female age 70 & under 80 living with them. I believe this is the same family.
The Van Wert Cty., Harrison Twp., Ohio 1850 census has the son George P. Ridenbaugh (Reidenbach) age 39, his wife Margaret age 23 and children: Mary-4, Elizabeth-1.There is also what looks like "Aleony E, 55, born in Germany", and Mary Sckaer, age 85.
Philip's daughter, Mary Reidenbach, married George Slemmer (Schlemmer) 2/28/1844 in Van Wert, Ohio. George & Mary moved to Monroeville, Indiana some time before 1860.
The Schlemmer Cemetery in Monroeville, IN has Katherine Reidenbach, b. March 13, 1808, d. May 17, 1888. I do not know how she may be related my ancesters, but I have found many marriages between the Reidenbach's, Sckaer/Scaer/Scarr's, Schlemmer's, and others -- very confusing to say the least!!
Perhaps I can find other researchers with pieces to the puzzle?
