Sharing Family Knowledge

In Reply to: Re: Morrow - Northern Ireland>Toledo, OH>New York City by Bill of 1621

Bill,

I was reading your reply to Patricia and decided to look at your messages and see why you were answering or if you really weren't related to Morrow.

By the surnames in your messages, I would say you are and just like me once don't know it.

Here's what I have found with the help of others and research. Mars/Marrs/Myers/Meyers/Maier/Meier/Meek/Meer/Mear/Morrow/Murray/etc AKA's are some of the same family. I am not about to say all of them are, as I too am talking from my descendancy.

I can barely wait to open your message for Emma Seehafer, although I don't think she is the one for which I am searching. Maybe related, I hadn't tried that spelling yet.

I know Lowe is a family name as are:
Costello
Schober different spelling again
Hembree
Auth/Ault?
Krause/Kruse/etc
Prax/Platt Haas is that family? I have Haas/Haus/House/Houston/Huston/Hutton/Hopper/Hooper/etc aka

It also helps my fathers side of the family was mostly German too, besides I've been there, and have a family from Germany living stateside as friends too. They have been a great help with names in my genealogy search translating what some of the names mean.

Seibert/Sybert/Schaeffer/Schafer/Shaffer/Shafer/Schermegost/can be all the same family.

Dickler aka Dick/Decker/etc

Strampe may be Sturm/Storm/Strum My ggg-grandmother was a Sturm married a Robinson back late 1700's. My gg-grandmother was born 1818. We are talking OH too.

I see you have Obermoellrich, I have Obermayer. The Ober states the person was an overseer of whateve moellrich is. I can't think of what it might be at the moment.

Schneider, there are many Snyders in Lucas Co, I went to school with some many years ago. Many other spellings too and I didn't relalize they were family as Mom only gave me surnames connected to our families and the rest is help and research.

Klepper aka Klopper/Knopper/Knob....fogot, it will come to me later I am sure. It's late. Good excuse? I tried{:>)

Klose/Close
Could your Reinartz be Reinhart/Reinhardt/etc.
Phoeby can also be spelled Phebe/Phoebe and I have seen Brill just as you have it. I have don't research for this name just yet. I have seen Spires given as a surname spelled differently. You just wouldn't believe this one.

Neises/Nissin/Nissen/Nisson and Nissen in Lucas Co, too.

Taufner/Stauffer/Stouffer/Stover/etc

Reiter/Riter/Ritter/ were in Champaign Co in 1800's once owned property purchased by my gg-grandfather.

Schilbe/Shibe/Schive/Shivers/etc

Mom once told me as we were going down Conant in Maumee, OH near Monclova, OH that were were relalted to Conant too.

While growing as a child, I began to think it was a name game my mother enjoyed. Yet, those names have remained with me through the years. I am finding so many of them now doing genealogy, I wish I would have asked questions.

My grandmother on my father's side married a Baker of Lucas Co. It was the last she married of 5 husbands, most of them died first.

Now Dorsey Simmons intrigues me. My ggg-grandmother was a Dorsey and Simmons is an AKA of another surname in the other side of the family. So many of them are coming together, I often wonder if my folks knew they were distant cousins. Not odd back then.

Odel/Odell is a family name too.

I have found that some of the surnames that are spelled differently are from those that may have been slaves of the master of the house. I really haven't found it to directly say, but who knows, it happened.

If you feel I can be of any help, just click my name for my email address and let me know or leave a message.
