Christian Schlechty 1770-1780 Lancaster Co., PA
1840 census for Neave Twp.,Darke Co., Ohio shows Christian Schlecty 1 male 60-70 1 female 5-10 1 female 40-50.
Son Christian Jr is next door, and probably son John next to Jr. Also on same page of census is my ancestor David Nevius and his brother William Nevius (Nafy in census )
Christiam Jr married probably Susan Noggle.
I am interested in the oldest Christian born 1770-1780. There is a marriage in Darke Co., Ohio in 1830 of Christian Schlecty and Hetty Neves.Census for eldest Christian shows a 40-50 female the right age for widow of Albert Nevius. He was probably a widower when he and Hetty married in 1839.
Can a Schlecty researcher help me verify this info??
I am about 95% sure this is what happened, but nothing proven yet.
Also found Christian Jr baptism in Lancaster PA> He was baptised Feb 26 1797.(I have the church and place) Father Christian (1770-1780 probably) and sponsor was Christian (more than likely grandfather) Christian Jr born 1797 is the one married to Susan Noggle I am pretty sure of.
I have no other info on this family as they are not an ancestor except I think my gggg grandmother married Christian (1770-1780) after her husband died. This is not proven yet. Only speculation.
Thanks for any help on this
