I'm attempting to find more information about Gilliams from Kentucky and Niederhausers of Ohio and Switzerland.
From the Wyandot County Info page:
CHRISTIAN NIEDERHAUSER is a native of Switzerland, born in Canton Berne, January 8, 1822; his parents, David and Elizabeth (Eausey) Niederhauser, were natives of the same country, and emigrated in 1832, settling in Tuscarawas County, Ohio, rearing a family of nine children, two living-David and Christian; John, Frederick, Samuel Elizabeth, Ann and two infants are deceased. Our subject obtained the rudiments of an education, and September 2, 1847, married Miss Elizabeth Knaus, daughter of Thomas and Susanna (Richman) Knaus born May 29, 1820; her parents were natives of Pennsylvania and Maryland respectively. Mr. N.'s grandfather served in the Revolutionary war. Mr. and Mrs. N. have but three children living-Elizabeth (wife of John Brant), John and Susan. The deceased are David, Edward, Benja. min F. and two infants. Mr. Niederhauser purchased his present farm in 1846, then 83 acres, now 123, much of which was forest land cleared by himself and wife. He erected a "bank" barn costing $700 in 1868, a brick house costing $1,000 in 1870, and a fine windmill in 1883. Mrs. N. received a stroke of paralysis in 1874, and has since been an invalid, having lost the entire use of her limbs. Mr. N, is a Democrat in politics, and both are members of the Reformed Church.
JOHN NIEDERHAUSER, son of the above, was born December 3, 1852; he made his home with his parents till his marriage to Miss Rosanna E. Sigler, January 27, 1876. Her parents are William and Rosanna (Mitchel) Sigler, natives of Pennsylvania and residents of Eden Township. Mr. and Mrs. Niederhauser are parents of four children-Neven 0., born July 6,1878; Emma B., March 20, 1881; Christian E., August 26,1883, and an infant deceased. Mrs. N. was born July 6, 1849. Since his marriage, Mr. N. has tilled his father's farm. He purchased sixty-six acres near this in 1882, and during the past five years has operated a Huber thresher. He is a Democrat, and both he and his wife are members of the German Reformed Church.
