Hi! I am totally confused. It seems that there may be two John Obers and perhaps they are cousins. One John Ober, supposedly the son of Jacob Ober and Anna Marye, married a woman named Ann. They had 9 children: David, Mary, Catherine, Peter, John, Elizabeth, Esther, Ann, and Jacob. This John died in Londonderry Township in what became Dauphin County, PA. My ancestor, John Ober, also supposedy the son of the above Jacob Ober, was married to a Christina Bricker and had 8 children: Twins (Ann Maria and Elizabeth), Catherine M., Franny, Jacob, Henry, Barbara, and Christian. I believe that this John Ober died in Franklin County, PA, possibly in Peters Township. People keep intertwining these two men into one person. Could one of these John Obers possibly be the son of Jacob's brother, also named John Ober, with whom Jacob came over to America on the ship "Mortonhouse?" Any help on this matter would be much appreciated.
