Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 269, Prairie Township, White County, Indiana

"FRED GEYER was born in Morgan County, Ohio, in December, 1837, and is the son of JACOB F. and ELIZABETH GEYER, natives of Germany and early settlers of Morgan County, whence they moved to Hocking County, Ohio, and then on to this State, in 1862. Here the mother died, but the father is still living. FRED GEYER was reared to farming and worked for his father until of age. In 1860, he married MISS BARBARA, daughter of JOHN A. and BARBARA STIMER, and a native of Morgan County, and to this union have been born four children - TAZEWELL J., GEORGE U., EMMA J., and ORA A. For about ten years, MR. and MRS. GEYER resided in Tippecanoe County, then came to this township and purchased eighty acres on Section 7, which he has since improved greatly. Both MR. and MRS. GEYER are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church."
