Olinghouse 1800 to present

I have never found an Olinghouse I am not related to. I have the Olinghouse tree back to Christian Olinghouse (name was probably changed when he arrived in US about 1790)and his wife Temperance who was born about 1800 in MD. They had children Mary Ann (married Elias J. Plank), Israel (married Urzilla Largent), Sarah (married Charles T. Harvey), Jonathan J. (my ggrandfather who married first Mary Collett and second Mary E. Lewallen), Catherine (married George M. Weaver), Malinda (married James Drew), Elias (married Hattie Babitt and for whom Olinghouse, NV is named), Philip (married Elizabeth), and Lewis (married Lovinia Lee). Jonathan had 7 childred with Mary Collett (daughter of Abraham Collett)Elias Wayne (my ggrandfather who married Catherine Medlam), Charles Thomas (married Delcena Batchelder), Theodore (married Ella B. Hanselman), Victor Burther (married Mary A. Aldrich), Ada Ann (married Harvey Babb), Etta Ellen (married Orlando C. Harsh), and Mary Malinda (married Charley E. Babb). Mary Collett died in 1870 and Jonathan married Mary Lewallen with whom he had 7 more children Dwight M. (married Anna M. Oaks), Almira (married Frank Martin), Francis Melvin (married Clara B. Anders), Elnora Bell, Jerusha Emmaroy (died in infancy), David Sankey (married Mabel B. Drake), and Willis Irving (married Helen Yunker). Elias Wayne married Catherine Medlam and they had children William Russell (married Bessie Stewart and Neva Norris), Mary E. (died in childhood), Martha E. (married Benjamin F. Dovel), Roy (married Leta Trittipo) and his twin Ray M. (my grandfather)(married Bertha M. Bowen). My mother Hellon Ruth is the oldest of their eight children.
Sorry this is such a long message but I would be very interested in hearing from any Olinghouse relatives. My mother is still alive and can answer some questions about the family. From about 1840 on the Olinghouses have lived in northern Indiana around LaGrange Co.
Hope to see some postings here soon.
