U.S. States: Indiana: Elkhart County
Michael Lecher was born c1777 in York Co. Pa. when he was about 43 years old he married the much younger, Elizabeth Rider, the daughter of Peter Rider. She was born c1800 eithr in York Co. Pa. or Baltimore, Md. They had three sons born and baptized near Hanover, York Co. Pa.: George, Jeremiah and John Joseph. The family then moved to Stark Co. Ohio where Michael Lechner died in 1835.
Elizabeth then married Joseph Young. She and Joseph Young and her son John Joseph Lechner all moved to Elkhart Co. Ind. The other two sons remained in Ohio. Does anyone have additional information on Elizabeth? Did she have additional children by Joseph Young? What became of John Joseph Lechner?
I accumulated a lot of information on the earlier generations of the Lechner family family in Pa. which I would be happy to share.
