Re: Nathan & Polly (Krause) Biery of N Whitehall, Lehigh County
Thanks for the info.It prompted me to find the Biery family in the 1850 census.I found them under the name Beary.Uriah is there but mangled in the transcription as "Whri".
Uriah is not the child of Polly Krause though.All the Nathan Biery children were born by Leanna Guth.He and Polly were both widowed when they married and had no children together.
Polly first married to John Hausman and had five children by him.Interesting that the first born son, Uriah, inherited his father's business concerns and not his widow.
Uriah died and was buried in the Mertztown area of Berks Co. and it seems this family line emerged from Northampton Co. but don't know for sure.Nathan's father was a John Beiry and married a Catharine Trachsel.
Good luck finding Philip.
