ENGELBERT - Benton, OH - 1853 to 1862
My gr-gr-grandfather, WILHELM P. ENGELBERT, lived in Holmes Co. from 1853 until 1862.He was a Lutheran minister.Spouse was Catherine Kunigunde DIETZ.
Does anyone know if Benton had its own Lutheran Church during that time period?Name of congregation?Still there? Any records?
Informal family records for children born there (1857 and 1858) refer to their birthplace as "Soldsreek"/"Soldreek" Township. Was that ever a local placename, or (more likely) a misspelling/mispronunciation for "Salt Creek"?
Any information or leads will be appreciated.
