In the Beers History of Washington Co p 256 has the Wise family. This is Adam Wise of German extraction. It describes this family quite well and gives the marriages of the children. I don't know if he came with brothers and sisters as it doesn't say. But it tells his life. This is on the Washington Co genealogy site. http://chartiers.com/beers-project/articles/wise-256.htmlhttp://chartiers.com/beers-project/articles/wise-256.html He was married twice. His daughter Elizabeth married a Jacob Shidler. Probably from a different family than mine as he didn't marry an Esther (my Jacob). David married Esther Shidler, Samuel married Elizabeth Shidler,daughter of John Shidler. Of course George Shidler of our Jacob, married Katherine Wise and it is said she was not related to George's mother. Not enough research has been done in the area in my opinion to get the right answers. You just check all the Wise families in the area and see if there is a connection. One of Adam's son's Lewis Wise moved to Stark Co,Ohio and his bio is in their Portrait and Biographical Record of Stark Co,Ohio Pg 258. He may have gone there with more family and the Shidlers which some settled in Stark.I have more confidence in Harry's book than I do in the rewrite as they didn't check on sources nor accuracy.I can't afford to hire someone to find the truth and check up on the sources in Washington Co.. I quess some answers will never be known.
