We also have an Ely/Strker connection in Knox County, Ohio.Rebecca Striker, born in Ohio, married Andrew Smith, born in Wash. Co. Pa.They are our ancestors. Rebecca's father was Daniel Stricker, who also had sons named Henry and Daniel (Jr.). Daniel Sr. had a brother, Jacob, who married Elizabeth Ely. Jacob Stricker and Elisabeth Ely both were born in Pa. and died in Knox Cty. Ohio. I suspect the Ely and Stricker families may have traveled together from Pa to Ohio.
The parents of Daniel Stricker Sr. and Jocob Striker were John Lawrence Strickr and Mary Barbara Wolf who were married about 1766 in Pa.They had several other children
