Re: Niswonger Switzerland to Ohio

Since my last posting, I have found several other articles written by a Mr. Beers, 1880 History of Darke Co OH and 1882 History of Montgomery Co OH that shed a different light on JOHN NISWONGER and wife ELIZABETH CIRCLE.

It seems the family came to Montgomery Co OH from Virginia. This is supported by the 1850 census which shows John age 64 born (1786) VA and Elizabeth age 61 born (1789)VA.

Other researchers connect this John to the JOhN NISWANGER in Frederick Co VA who left a will in 1788. I just saw a copy of the will and the way it is worded, not sure he had a son named JOHN.

Does anyone out there have a claification on the will?

Thanks, Chris Gass
