States: Ohio: Mercer
I am a descendant of Joseph Meiring, Sr. (b. abt. 1804/Prussia - d. aft. 1880/Indiana?) who married Catherine Sehon (Sohn) in Minster in 1835 and settled in Cranberry Prairie, Marion Twp., Mercer Co., Ohio. They had 5 children, all born in Cranberry Prairie. The eldest son was ANTHONY NICHOLAS MEIRING, SR., born May 14, 1837. Other siblings included Elizabeth, Frank, Joseph and Theresa. ANTHONY MEIRING SR. was married to Caroline Mary Blattau in Cranberry on Aug 17, 1868. They had 4 sons, Anthony, William, John and Peter. Apparently, ANTHONY MEIRING, SR., who was a farmer and owned two plots in Mercer Co., Marion Twp., was killed in a logging accident in 1879. His widow Caroline remarried and moved to Indiana. My question is, where is ANTHONY MEIRING, SR. buried? Also, his first child Anthony Jr. died at birth on Oct 10, 1870 - where is he buried? I there anyone local who has done extensive research on the Meiring family I am speaking about? I live in Phoenix, AZ and need some help. Thanks! Jeff
