In searching for a great great Grandmother,Christianna Wyand who married Rudolph Whittmore in Huron County, Ohio in 1836. I believe this may be information that will link her to her family but have not completed the trail yet. I believe this maybe her brother and thought I would post it.
Henry Wiand b. Jefferson County, near Salem, Annapolis, Ohio, 27 July 1817, the son of John & E. [Troupe] Wiand both natives of Germany. John was a soldieer in the war of 1812. They arrived in Ohio in 1823 near Carrollton, Carol County, Ohio.There were 6 sons and 3 daughters. Henry is one of those 6 sons. The only survivors in the early 1880s is Henry and George in Jackson County. Henry had 3 marriages; 1. unknow name left one daughter Elizabeth,who married B. F. Hamilton of Illinois. #2 name unknown; there were 9 children, Christian; Valentine; Mary Jane mar. Wm Henderson; Jerusha, wife of Mr. Demuth; Henry F. ; Hattie; Emma C.; Ida, deceased; and Anna. His 3rd wife was Mrs. Rannels, of New Philadelphia. She is a member of the Morovian Church and he of the German Reformed. He owns property in Clay Township where he has lived for 20 years. He was a farmer, then a merchant and later an hotel owner. There was more on his life but I thought this was the most important parts. I found this in a historical book with Biography's for those living in Tuscarawas County in 1884. It was one of the books where people wrote there biographys and paid to have them put in the book. I did not write the exact name but could get it for you if you want. June
