Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 759, Tippecanoe Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"ISRAEL OVERMYER was born in Union County, Pennsylvania, in April, 1826, and is one of the six children born to PHLIP and MARGARET (SWINEFORT) OVERMYER, viz: ISRAEL, GEORGE (deceased), WILLIAM, LEVI (deceased), RICHARD (deceased), and LUCINDA. The father is a farmer, and now lives in Sandusky County, Ohio, to which point he came when ISRAEL was eight years old; ISRAEL lived there about twenty-one years, and then came to Pulaski County, and in 1866 to this township. He married SARAH MYERS, who has borne him thirteen children - HENRY, VANDY (deceased), MARY, MARGARET, HARRIET, GEORGE, THOMAS, CHARLES (deceased), NANCY (deceased). FREDERICK, ROSETTA, EMMA and DELLA. He lives six miles southwest of Monterey, and owns a well-cultivated farm of 147 acres (forty acres being one-quarter of a mile southeast of his home), and makes a specialty of raising wheat and corn."
