Looking for information about Jeremiah (Jerry) RIGEL born 1810 in Ohio, and Elizabeth HOFFMAN born in Rockingham County, Virginia, married in Defiance County, Ohio fall of 1860.Elizabeth HOFFMAN (HUFFMAN) was first married to Benjamin HARVEY, after his death she married Jeremiah.Their daughters Anna Amanda were born at Lima (Defiance), Ohio July 13, 1862, and Suzan Elizabeth June 6, 1865. They moved to near Kinross, Iowa about 1865, Jeremiah and Elizabeth are buried at the English River Cemetery, Iowa.I need information on their ancestors.
NOTE the following is not established, any information would help.I feel putting this in the files will help find out if this is the same Jeremiah RIGEL or not!

Hughes Cemetery Delaware County, Ohio).If so they had 3 sons Isaac, Jacob S., Jeremiah (Jerry) Rigel born Tuscarawas County, Ohio. died in Hicksville, Defiance County, Ohio buried in the Forest Home Cemtery.Thank You, please contact me by email.
