George N. and Adaline Niner, Venango Cemetery, Crawford Co., PA

Seeking information on this family. Believe they are part of the following -

From various census records the children of Henry Niner (some suggest his name was Henry Charles) and Margaret Huner Niner were:

George Crothel Niner b. 1843 in Maryland. One source indicated such a naming pattern of same first name was not too uncommon in some German cultures. The second name being used as the way to identify one from another. The "George" could be a significant family name.

George [N? ] Niner b. 1844 in Pennsylvania md an Adaline (1841-1902) both died in Crawford Co., PA in the Venango Cemetery. Note the woman's name is later repeated in the daughter of Margaret Niner Boys (Sena Adaline Boyd).

Fredrick Louis Niner b. ca 1852 in Pennsylvania - d. in 1922 in Colorado

Margaret Ann Niner b. ca 1850 in Allegheny Co., Pennsylvania - d. before 1920 in Barry Co., Missouri (?). She married William Sylvester Boyd in Cooperstown, PA and after 1870 moved to Barry Co., Mo.

Georgina Niner, b. PA
William C. 1856 b. in Pennsylvania.
Mary A. Niner, b. ca 1858 in PA
Barbara M Niner, b. 1857? in PA md George JOY

Due to the common names shared with a Niner group going to Ohio, there may have been at least one brother to Henry Niner ( a John Niner) and possibly one in Maryland. The first son is listed as being born there and Margaret lived there, so it may be the place the Niner's entered the country.
