I'm helping an Overmyer descendant (David Overmyer of Tucson, AZ) trace his Overmyer lineage back to Capt. John George Overmyer for the purpose of joining the Sons of the American Revolution.I have his line back only 4 generations, to Charlie/Charley D. Overmyer.
I've proven his line with both the 1910 and 1920 censuses for Sand Springs Precinct/Limestone County/AL that the Charles D. and Mary E. Overmyer family consisted of the following:
Charles/Charley D., b. ca. 1875, born in Ohio, both parents born in Ohio Mary E., b. ca. 1883, born in Ohio, both parents born in Ohio All children born in AL: Sarah E., b. ca. 1902 Henry E., b. ca. 1904 Lonnie A., b. ca. 1906 James L. b. ca. 1909 Roy, b. ca. 1910 Oscar J., b. ca. 1913
Can one of you family historians find the parents of this Charles D. Overmyer for me?If not, which web sites do you recommend that I place queries on?
Looking forward to the big reunion next year.I've done a lot of preparatory research and hope to help any number of JGO descendants qualify for membership in the SAR.
Thanks for your help!
