" . . . On 27 Aug., 1940 Rev. H. R. Burkett wrote John M.
Burkett of Washsington, D. C., describing his trip from Wabasha,
Minn., of copying from an old family Bible at the home of John
E. Fouts, 324 Infermary Rd., Dayton, Oh., the . . . list of ch.,
saying the top of the page was torn off and that is was written
in German script. The list is copied verbatim from the
handwriting of Miss Sarah Ida Williams, Rt. #1, Cambridge City,
Ind. . . Ester . . . "On the next page Miss Williams says: 'I
could not make out the first one. It looked like this
---'---hannes ist geboren -----' This mustmean 'Johannes was
born ----' The first two letters of Johannes were lacking and
the date was torn off. "Dr. William Reser has the same list and
says that it is the family of John Fouts, the immigrant and is
from the Bible of Jacob Fouts. "Lindsay M. Brien, writing in a
Dayton Newspaper an artiel 'Our Forefather -- Fouts' in the
second pgh says 'It was not long until the early Ohio
Settlements attracted many of the fmaily. Andrew, David, and
John, known to be brothers, with their sister, Esther, wife of
Jacob (Young) settled in Montgomery Co., in 1801.' A glance at
the . . . list of ch. shows that Andrew, David, John, and
Esther, three brothers and a sister belong to the family of John
Fouts, Sr. "Mr. (sic) Brien in the fourth pgh. lists the family
of John Fouts, Jr. and Mary (Younce) Fouts. He (sic) says 'John
Fouts stone states he died Nov., 1815, aged 75 yrs. but as his
will was not recorded until 1822, this may not be correct.
'Tradition says that he was born 8 March 1747 and died 11 Nov.,
1821. "Nowhere in these early records taken from the family
Bible does the name John Andreww occur. In legal reference to
ch., the males are listed first, then females. In this case the
male list would be -- John, Andrew, Jacob and David, especially
since the info. onJohn was only partial and on later lists his
name is lacking. Hence I infer there never was a John Andrew in
this family, but merely Andrew. (signed) Edgar A. Menk, Muncie,
Ind., 26 Jan., 1958." "Archibald Henderson i his book 'The
Conquest of the Old South West' writes of 'The two streams of
immigration, the greater through Philadelphia, the lessor
through Charleston, which poured into the Carolinas, quckly
flooding the back country -- the former who had resided in Penn.
long enough to be good judges of land . . . " "Between the years
1792 and 1805, John, Daniel, Andrew, Lewis, Michael, Joseph,
Phillip, Absolem, David, Elizabeth, and Mary Fouts, all from
Penn. entered land on the Uwharie River in No. Car. The name is
found in various deeds as Fouts, Phouts, and Pfouts. It was not
long until the early Ohio settlements atracted many of this
famiy. Andrew, David and John, together with their sister
Ester, wife of Jacob Yount, settled in Montgomery Co., while
Frederick and Henry, sons of John, were in Miami Co., in 1801.
"The old Fouts Bible in possession of descendants in Middletown,
Oh., give the record of birth of this Fouts family, but does not
give the names of the parents . . . record does not give the
birth of John, whose will was recorded in Montgomery Co., in
1822, . . . mar. Jacob Yount . . ." ! Gen. Aid Bulletin, (This
