Ihave recently started to search for family roots and came upon Edward Tokartz's wonderful web site.I am related to the Overmeyer family through the following line:
John George Overmyer John George Overmyer II1727-1805 John Philip Overmyer1769-1843 Philip Overmyer1801-1888 Israel Overmyer1826-1894 Margaret Overmyer Dunfee1862-1898 Agnes Priscilla Dunfee Palmer1876-1978 Esther Margaret Palmer Sailor1904-1993 Deloros Priscilla Sailor Youngprivate Nancy Priscilla Young Jacobsenprivate
I have a picture of Margaret Overmyer Dunfee and her husband Thomas and several of their children.Family legend has it that Margaret died shortly after childbirth and Agnes (her daughter) served as a wet nurse for her little brother as she was also a young mother at that time.
Agnes died on May 1, 1978 in Misawaka, Indiana.She lived to be 102 years old and lived at home until her last few days.I remember her well and attended her funeral.
If anyone know how to contact Ed Tokartz, the owner of the site, I can forward those family pictures I have - going back to Margatet Overmyer Dunfee and he can add then to his site.I also have other names and dates if anyone would be interested in adding the information to the family history.The children of Margaret Overmyer Dunfee and Thomas Dunfee are the last listed on the GenCircles site.
