My direct ancestors are Yeagers and on the 1860 census it lists Nicholaus Garger, age 29 in Johns Hill Precinct Pg 5. Listed with him are 3 children: Margaret age 3, Frank age 5 and Barbara age 1. Under those names in the same household is Thomas Hartman age 40, no occupation, b. in Germany. Nicholaus was not m. until 1860 to Louisa Kneipp, so I don't think Louisa is their mother. Nicholaus could have been m. before and maybe the wife died leaving the 3 children. I have not found where he m. anyone else, but those are old records and may have been missing. Maybe they were Thomas Hartman's children, but they should have been listed under him. Maybe they were children of relatives who died. Anyone having more info on them, please contact me.
