I have traced my lineage back to Jacob Olinger (b 24 Dec 1820) and Elizabeth [Zumbrun] Olinger (b 30 April 1826) who were married 1845 in Madison, Montgomery, OH and were still present in the 1850 census. They moved in 1850-51 to Thorncreek, Whitley, Indiana and can be seen there in the 1860 census.
A John and Eve Olinger were neighbors of Jacob and Elizabeth in Madison Twp in 1850 census, had a son named Jacob (from prior message board postings), and ten years before had a son matching my Jacob's age range (from 1840 census).
Circumstantial evidence suggests that my Jacob is John's and Eve's son.
Can anyone confirm or refute this connection?
If so, is this John Olinger the brother of Judge George Olinger and son of John Sr?
