I think the Martin you refer to is a son of the Martin I am researching.If I have it correctly, Hans Eisenhaer was born in 1600 -
son, Hans Peter Eisenhauer born 1650, married Anna Catherine Mildenberger- they have a son,
Hans Nicolaus Eisenhauer born 1691, married Anna Margaretha Strubel, one of their sons was
Martin, born in 1726 married Anna Barbara Gaff, son
Johannes born in 1752 married to Barbara, son
Phillip born 1785, married to Mary Baker, son
Joseph born 1815 married to Lettie Barnes, son
Thomas born 1830 married Mary Land, son
James J born 1866 married Anna Cassidy (Casada), son
Lloyd born 1893 married Ethel Lucille Holbrooks, son
Dan C. Icenhower born 1915 married Addie Mae Willliams,
Elaine born 1955.I know Thomas was in the Confederacy, we have visited his grave in Robbinsville, NC.I am not sure where James J (Grandpa Jim) is buried, but Lloyd and Lucille are buried in Oak Grove Baptist Church Cemetery in Franklin, NC.My dad, Dan C., is buried in Lenoir, Caldwell County, NC.
If my info is correct, my Martin didn't serve in the Revolution.Maybe Johannes (John) did - I guess it would be possible for him, he was born in 1752, which makes him two years older than the George Martin you have (born 1754).
As far as I know, we don't have relations we know Schopp, Shoff, or Shoap.We never had many relatives to visit - Daddy was the oldest, then Crawford (died 2002) lived in Lowell, NC; Floyd lived in Fort Worth, TX - died around 1996, Earl was a dentist, lived in Granite Falls, NC - died of cancer in 1984, Berline married Carl Elliott, she lives in Lowell, NC.We have gone for several years to the Icenhower Reunion in Franklin, NC to meet some of the relations there.Our info only goes back about four generations.I would love to be able to prove an Icenhower ancestor for DAR.Does this help link any to me?Thanks so much!Elaine
