Re: Johnsey EASTON, m. 1832, Sarah STIMMEL

In Reply to: Re: Johnsey EASTON, m. 1832, Sarah STIMMEL by Len Easton of 524

What was the date of Sarah EASTON's probate? The children may be named as next of kin in the inventory of her estate or in its distribution even if not named in the will. However, by the date she probably died, you should be able to rely on the 1850+ censuses to find Johnsey & Sarah & children.

For the years up to 1777, the wills and inventories were all kept at the state level and have been published. However, after that, you have to see what each county did.

The newspaper abstract of the marriage as listed by MOORE says that Sarah STIMMEL & Johnsey EASTON were married Tuesday by Rev. David F. SCHAEFFER, reported 14 Jan. 1832, from microfilm at the C. B. Artz Library, Frederick. I suspect that the German background of the STIMMEL family would account for the Lutheran connection.

I don't think Johnsey was a nickname for John. What I'm wondering if whether it might refer to JOHNS ancestry. The name Johnsey occurs in other Maryland families, but I haven't seen it elsewhere. Thus, I don't think Johnsey was an immigrant who would be likely to be indentured/apprenticed.

I'm not sure what other published records you might find for Frederick.
