- MENNEMEIER, MINAMEIER, MINAMYER, MINEMEIER, MINEMYER, MINNAMEIER, MINNAMEYER, MINNEMEYER posted by Carol Beth Minnemeyer-Knudson on Tuesday, September 4, 2001
- MINNEMEYER, MINAMYER, MINNAMEYER, MINNAMEIER, MINAMEIER, MINEMYER, MINEMEIER, MENNEMEIER... All seem to be connected, arrived from Alsace-Lorraine which was on the borders of France and Germany. In any kind of border dispute one or the other countries would take over Alsace-Lorraine. If you were an unmarried female, living under the head of household (Minnemeyer)you ended up with a different ending to the original Minnemeyer name. Sometimes so did a minor male. Can anyone find any variation on this spelling in their histories??? I have three Johns in one family... I am wondering if maybe they named the next male born after a dead child but added another middle name. Thanks for your time, Carol Beth firstname.lastname@example.org

- BACON, FRANCIS posted by Harry Gardiner on Friday, September 14, 2001
- FRANCIS Family -- Looking for information on James Francis(1816-1889) and Matilda Skelton Francis Bacon (1832-1904)who lived in Coudersport and Stewardson Township area in the 1850-1870 period. They had 11 children -- Sarah Jane, George W, Mary, Nelson Packer, Juliette, Caroline,Walter R, Clara E, Ida, Flora, and John. I am particularly interested in John (1855-1914), my grandfather. James was a lumberman in the Stone House, Kettle Creek region. After his death, Matilda married Simeon BACON, her widowed sister's husband.
- MERRICK, VANNATTER posted by Tim Chase on Tuesday, September 18, 2001
- Response to Jacob VANNATTER Ron, through the Burrows connection Jacob was my 5th g-grandfather. The one difference I see in our work is that I have a Polly Vannatter married to Isaac MERRICK. Almira-Elmira, Calvin Burrows and the little Ives info that I have check out with your posting.
- BENCE posted by Sharon Neveux on Thursday, September 27, 2001
- BENCE - Potter County circa 1830-1840 In 1834 Francis BENCE married Magdalena Harr (later Hare) in Potter Co. Earlier in that same year his first wife died. I am jumping to the conclusion that he was living in the area and his first wife is buried there someplace, since just 6 mo. later he was there marrying Magdalena. In 1840, in Allegheny Twp. George and Alvarado BENCE were on the census. Francis had a brother, George. Does anyone have any information re George, Alvarado or Francis?
- BENCE, HARR, LEHMAN, REED posted by Sharon Neveux on Thursday, September 27, 2001
- HARR,REED, McDOWELL, LEHMAN Potter County circa 1830-1850 My great-great-grandmother Magdalena HARR/Hare was married in Potter County in 1834. She married Francis BENCE. I am looking for more information about the HARR family. This is what I have gleaned from Potter Co. records so far: Various records show a Dailatt Harr, a Dabole Harr, and a David Harr. Apparently he drowned in 1850. I am guessing that these are all the same man, but can anyone verify this? A younger David Harr (probably son of Dailatt/Dabole/David) married to Margaret lived in Roulette in 1850. Their children in 1850 were Carolyn, Jacob, Louisa, Henry, and Sarah. Either Louisa or Sarah later married Wallace REED. Also 1850, there is a Barbara HARR married to William McDOWELL. Her mother, Sophia (Evedon) HARR was living with them at the time. 1850 census of Eulalia Twp has a Dorothy HARR, husband Gottlieb LEHMAN. Their firstborn is Sophia. Magdalena also named her firstborn girl Sophia. I am concluding that Magdalena, Barbara, Dorothy and David are all offspring of the original Dailatt/Dabole/David Harr. Are there any REED, McDOWELL, LEHMAN, HARR descendants out there who can clarify this, before I leap to a wrong conclusion?
