Mary Ellen Ehrhart who md. Dr. Samuel Dodds Meriwether was a niece of my grandfather Jacob Ehrhart, who also lived in Maries Co. until after the Civil War when he moved to Howell Co.MO. A joke in the family was because grampa was a bit younger than this niece! (He b. 1838 Madison Co, IN & she b 1837 IN/IL.) Jacob's father Peter had md twice, Mary was born to Peter's 1st son John Ehrhart; so John & Jacob were 1/2 brothers. Mary had triplets among her 10 children; she also had several full siblings as well as some 1/2 siblings.
They are a goodly part of my 2012 book "EHRHARTS of York Co, PA, Descendants of J. Wilhelm Ehrhart & A. Catharina Shreiner." Wilhelm & Catharina were both immigrants, Wilhelm in 1741 to Philadelphia, & I have his parents & grandparents in Germany (as well as Wilhelm & Catharina's children, & descendants who stayed in York Co, & some of the others who went west.) Several decades of primary research by many of us descendants.
If someone will tell me how, I would post the index to the book here.
