Re: John SHARTZER and Sarah GREENWALT
Hello distand cousin. There are more of us that have been waiting out here for you.
I'm Lois Stagal, and desecend from Mary's bro Stephen. Barbara Helberg, also come from him. Stephen was married twice, the first time to Elizabeth Sramm. Barb descends from there son John Jacob. Stephen married, Emily Thorp/VanScooter, after Elizabeth's death. There son Henry Arthur was my grandfather. Stephen & Mary also had a bro Henry Arthur that married Harriette Thorp. Probaly how Emily & Stephen met.
John & Sarah had 8 children that we know of. John, Phillip, Rosannah, Henry, Stephen, Mary, LeAnna & Sarah.
Sarah, we have found nothing on. We asume she died young.
We have a contact to LeAnna's line also.
I have alot of info on this family, but we have never found anything on John in Pa. Or who his parents we.
As far as we know he came into Ohio & first settled in Stark Co. on 5 axers of land. In 1837 he bought land in Hancock Co. After the 1850 census it looks like he again moved, this time into Henry Co. We never found John living there. Just his family showed up on the 1860 census.We also have no idea were the earlier members of this family, that died, are buried.
I've been able to find the Bost family in several Census. Also Leroy "Roy" in 1920/30. We have found Mary & Adam's graves & have pics, but very little info on the family itself.
We will be glad to share info with you.
Hope to here from you soon
