You gave me a birth date of your family member David, so using that I checked for David in the "1880" census and found his family.
His father was Jacob, his mother was Annie (unknown last name). His siblings were Ira, Hannah, and Carl G. His Grandmother was living with them and her name was Eliza.
My next search was for Eliza (66 in 1880 census, so she would have been born circa 1812) I then searched for Eliza b 1812 who married unknown Wiltrout. I then discovered Eliza BOWLBYElizabeth BOWLBY b: ABT 1818 in Somerset Co., PA who married Jacob Wiltrout: Father: Johann Gottfried WILTROUT b: 16 JAN 1781 in ,Berks,PA and Mother: Margaretta DIETRICH b: 29 Feb 1786!
Jacob and Elizabeth must have moved to : Richland, Richland Co., OH.
Jacob probably passed away in Ohio and Elizabeth moved back to Somerset to live with her son, Jacob who was born in 1831, and his family, as you can see by the 1880 census in Somerset Co PA.
I believe your Bowlby ancestry makes you eligible for membership in the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution).... See information about DAR below. It begins under Samuel [Early family historians, and DAR lineages concur in that he was born in or near Imlaydale, Sussex County, New Jersey, around 1760.]
Now I have a question, please? Can you help to find Daniel Wiltrout who may be related to Elizabeth and her husband, Jacob?
Harriet Wiltrout was mentioned in her grandfather, George Bittner's Will in 1844. Her father's name was Daniel. He could have been Jacob's brother.
I would love to hear from you to see if, indeed, you believe this to be your family.
