Hi, I am trying to determine if all of the following information is for the same Henry Meyer.
First I have this information:
Rev. Roman Weinzapfel', BIRTH RECORDS OF RURAL EVANSVILLE'S GERMAN CATHOLICS 1844 - 1857, (Compiled and Translated by KAREN A. SCHOENBACHLER for WILLARD LIBRARY Evansville, Indiana 1986), 32.
195. Meyer, Henry....................................... Margaret Dimmer
St. James (Dammermann)
Henry Joseph b. 7/17/1847
John Valentine b. 2/2/1850
Next, this Henry Meyer appears to be the same as the above Henry:
Source Citation: Year: 1880; Census Place: Patoka, Gibson, Indiana; Roll: T9_279; Family History Film: 1254279; Page: 400.1000; Enumeration District: 116
1850 Gibson County Census
83 Henry Myer 39 M 1500, Ger
Margret 35 F "
Alferd 11 M Ohio
Bertha 10 F Ia
Mary 7 F Ia
Caroline 5 F "
Henry 3 M "
Charles Erving 23 M Farmer Ger r
Francis Eving 30 M " Ger r
I do not have an 1860 census record for this Henry but in 1870 and 1880 I found:
Sheet 244, Page 58, Johnson Township, 4 August 1870

" Martin 18 M W Work on Farm IN
" George 17 M W Work on Farm IN
" Elisabeth 15 F W At Home IN
" Margaret 11 F W At Home IN

Valrina was only 17 when Herny was born. She is probably a second wife.
Johnson Township, Gibson County, IN

George W M 25 S S At Home In

John W M 16 S S At home In.
In 1850 the next farm contains Joseph and Bernardina (Wenning) Meyer. IN 1870 we find John Appling/Abling and Bernadina Wenning Meyer Bankford Abling in the adjoining farm. So it appears that this is the same Henry Meyer. However, originally we find Henry a Catholic member of St. James RCC. However, the Henry of the 1870 and 1880 and his children are buried at St. Stephen and St. Lucas UCC. Not that it couldn't happen but not very often.
Can anyone confirm that this is the same Henry Meyer?
