Re: George Henry Oswald b circa 1825 Germany
I almost fell over when I read your posting. I have been researhing my MYERS line from Montgomery Co, Ohio and beleive that Elizabeth MYERS was my ggrandfather's sister. My ggrandfater was George Myers. He was born 14 Mar 1830 in Wurtemburg, Germany. The family came to America on 20 May 1847. Arriving in New York on the ship Elizabeth. I still need to do some further research, but I beleive this is how the family shapes up:
Jacob MYERS b.abt 1778
married Barbara WISE (probably WEISS) b.abt 1790 d.1872
Jacob and Barbara's children:
Christina MYERS b.21 Mar 1815 m.Frederick WOLF
Frederick MYERS b.abt 1819 m.Margaret
Jacob MYERSb.abt 1820
Elizabeth MYERS b.abt 1824 m.Henry OSWALD
Johannis MYERSb.abt 1829
George MYERSb.14 Mar 1830 m.Katharine BROWN
Mary Magdalena MYERS b.04 May 1833 m.Ernest SIEFERT
I had found Henry OSWALD and Elizabeth in the 1860 census (Perry Twp, Montgomery Co, OHp.354a). The following is a transcribtion of that data:

After 1860 I had lost them. I have been trying to find out what happened to this family.
I would be very interested in sharing my information about this family. I also would really like to find out more about your information on Berhum, Germany where Elizabeth came from.
