'My Henry Renner', I believe, first appears on the 1790 Northampton Co. census.I think it's my Henry who appears in 1800 in Bucks Co.
In 1810, he's in Northumberland Co., and 1820-1840 he's in Union Co.With all the county changes, I don't think he actually moved too often.In 1840 he is in the household of his son, Jacob, and his wife is not there, so I assume she died there in Union Co. PA.
In 1850, he's living with his daughter, Elizabeth and her husband, Daniel Beidleman in Wayne Co. OH.He's aged 88 by then, and does not appear on the 1860 census there.
I couldn't quite get a handle on how Elizabeth and her brother, Philip Renner, ended up in Wayne Co. OH when their parents were in PA and their other brothers.Philip's wife, Mary, was apparently a daughter of Valentine Beidleman and her brother Daniel married Philip's sister, Elizabeth.
So, I checked again for Valentine, who was in Bucks in 1790. In 1800 he's in Northampton and in 1810 he's in Northumberland. 1820 he's in Union Co., and in 1830 he and his wife, Elizabeth, are in the household of their son, Daniel, and his wife, Elizabeth Beidleman Renner in Wayne Co. OH.They both died there in 1836 and are buried in the Beidleman Cemetery.
Philip and Mary married in Wayne Co. in 1824 and Daniel and Elizabeth married in 1828.So, it appears the two oldest Renner children moved with the Beidleman's and Philip and Mary were likely already betrothed as they married shortly upon arrival (land records)
By 1840, Philip and Mary Renner had moved to Morgan Co. IN; they stayed there the remainder of their lives.Henry's daughter, Elizabeth, stayed on in Wayne Co. after he died and after the death of her husband, Daniel, in 1867.John, son of Henry, removed to Steuben Co. MI and sons Henry, Jr and Daniel moved to St. Joseph Co. MI, not far from Steuben.
I would like to hear from anyone descended from these folks, and I'm happy to share my info with them.
