I beleive that you are speaking of my great-grandfather, John Lohr and his brother, George. I am just getting started, but the family history as reported in the 1883 History of Madison County Ohio shows the birth date for John Lohr as 4/1/1816. He died 12/31/1899. His father died in Virginia on 2/26/1819 and his mother re-married to Samuel Messmore in 1820 and proceeded to Ohio with her four children. Do you know anything about Michael Lohr's father? He was a veteran of the Revolution. Several of my grandfather's sisters were DAR.
