Lefever & Bone & Boone
I see where one Ferree posting has a Lemeul Ferree mentioned.I have connected with my John Lefever born 1770's A lemuel Root who married in 1793 (I assume Frederick, Maryland) a Magdelena Schmit.John with his sister Catherine Lefever born 1768, wife of Jacob Schmit and others went from Frederick and the Evangelical Reformed (Lutheren) church about 1803 - 6 to Huntingdon Co. PA (now Blair Co) and most started the Logan Valley Salem Lutheren church, Antis Twp. in the then Huntingdon Co.
Besides Troxell or Troxel and Schaffer families nine of 11 children of Matthias Schmit and Anna Maria (Mary Ann) Buchman (or Hugman) went there. About year 1800 Shmits changed their name to Smith. CHILDREN Of Mitthias & M.A.:
John Mitthias married Mary magdelena Main / Maen / Maer.
Jacob m 1794 Catherine Lefever (dau of Elias & Mary Salome)
An. Barbara m 1788 Daniel Creager / Krieger
(Charles Baltzell, officer in Revolution married 2nd wife a Creadler & the Pennsylvania Lefever book has Baltzell raising Jacob Lefever born 1785)
Magdelena m 1793 Lemeul Root
Christina m William Bottenburger / Buttenburger
Mary m Jacob Richwine
Ann m Peter Kesler
Catherine m Benjamin Brehn / Brain
Abraham m 1798 Ester Lefever (Comment, daughter of
Christian Lefever, brother of Elias born 1743 # 8-014)
Susanna m 1808 George Regan
Elizabeth m 1797 Conrad Bower / Bauer
The PA Lefever book lists for Elias Lefever only two sons and a daughter. However, in Frederick court archives, DESCENTS: his heirs are named and his land sold (surveyed by Samuel Duvall by choice of the heirs) NAMED:
Catherine w/o Jacob Smith;
Elias (comment # 9-060 born 1790 married Catherine CRAVER
by lisc 1798);
my John b 1774-8 ?, married May 12 1800 Catherine Martz
born Frederick 1777;
Jacob (probably Jacob born 1785 listed as son of Jacob -
but father was Elias 8-014);
George b 1790 # 9-062.
The land, Benntts Resolution was sold to Baker Johnson. All sons went to SW Ohio.
When Christian died 1801, widow Anne Ferree & heirs sold his land to George Butt (no son Christian is name in deeds or cout action as minor) All the others in the Lefever book are, including the one to Abraham Schmit/Smith
I believe that the Christian assigned by George Newton Lefever as son of Christian is in error, that the Christian and Daniel Lefever pioneers in Miami Co by 1806 are sons of Elias 8-014.My John is a few houses away in 1820 and so are many families from Antis plus Hitton / Hilton / other versions, Daniel Harmon, Sarah Herman, Cyrus Haywood, Nathaniel Brown, Gerrards, Knoop.In a history, Daniel Lefever born 1733, died 1837, claims descent from a daughter of Louis DuBois.
Elias 9-060 In Descents was named as guardian of his younger brothers Christopher & George, went to Warren Co., OHHis Daughter Mary? married Bone.Another McCoy
Interesting that there were both Boone & Bone in Turtlecreek TWp, Warren Co and married the same families including McCoy & Hatfield, but supposed to not be the same surname.
