Glad to see so many people confused/interested in Esterline lineage. I will post what I know for sure and some speculations and if anybody knows anything please e-mail me.
First what I do know:
Henry Esterline b. June 1821 Hanover, York, PA married Christina ? born 1823 PA
Catharine b. 1843 married Henry Kirkenburg
Susanna M. b. 1844 married John Kirkenburg
David b. Aug 1845 m. Mary Cahtrine Wallace
Mary b. 1849 married Phillip Clengie (sp?)
Lydia b. 1852
Henry b. 1853 married Hattie
Martha b. 1855
Elva b. 1858
Mandana b. 1860
Emma b. 1863
William b. 1865

More on David b. Aug 1845 Sandusky Twp. Crawford County, Ohio d. 1934 Camden, MI
married 15 Nov 1870 in Williams County, OH to Mary Cathrine Wallace b. Oct 1853 Ohio, d. 1938 Camden MI (father Samuel Wallace mother Mary Thorpe Alvord)
Children William H. b. Apr 1872 d. 1901
Otis David b. 22 Apr 1885
Christena Jane b. Apr 1876 d. 1 Aug 1889
Elmer M. b. Nov 1891

More on William H. Esterline
married Effie Elizabeth Griffen b. 10 June 1881 Williams County, Bryan OH, died 6 April 1943 Jackson, MI
Children Gladness "Aunt Jim" b. 4 Aug 1897
Mary Elizabeth b. 27 July 1900 d. 7 June 1975
married Henry Eugene Hashley

This is the speculation part.
in the 1850 Census for Sandusky Twp, Crawford County, OH
Henry is listed as family No. 953
there is also a John Esterline listed as family no. 958.
There are christening records at Saint Matthew Church Hanover, York, Pa for John and Henry Esterlien stating fathers name of Henry but not mothers name. John and Henry both list PA as place of birth.
in the 1850 Census Vernon Twp, Crawford County, Henry Esterline age 60 (1791) with Polly (nickname for Mary) age 52 (1797) They list as birth place MD, with all children being born in PA. I have not found any other records for the Saint Matthew Luthern Church yet, but if anybody does, or has it may prove that Henry b. 1821 June and John b. May 1819 may be part of the Henry and Mary family. We know for sure that Ephiram, Andrew and Eli are son's of Henry and Mary along with daughters Polly and Lydia.
Further speculation:
The Saint Matthews Luther Church records in Hanover, York, PA spell the Esterline name as Esterlien. The correct German spelling is Oesterlien. Also belonging to the Luthern Church strongly suggest German Heritage but not always.
All comments welcome
