In Reply to: John and Elsie Eisenhauer Parents of Dorothy Ranck, Annabelle Wright, Louella by Jeffrey Ranck of 380

I'm not related. All these records are of Union County.

John B. and family appear in the 1930 and 1920 censuses of White Deer Twp. John was born ca 1893 and Elsie ca 1897. They were married ca 1914.

John Henry Eisenhauer's WWI draft card has his birth as May 5 1893 in White Deer. His WWII draft card has him going by the name John B. Eisenhauer.

The 1900 census shows a John Eisenhauer, born May 1893 as a boarder. This suggests he was not raised by his parents. I could not find him in the 1910 census.

It looks like your Eisie may be the Elsie J. Bridge, born Aug 1896, daughter of William, born Aug 1856 and Mary, born Aug 1859, found in the 1900 census of Lewis Twp. This is just speculation based on the names you provided and her approximate age.

ASSUMING this is the right family William and Mary Bridge appear in 1880 census of Hantley Twp. living next to George Bridge 47 and his wife Margaret 44. William is listed with George in the 1870 census of E. Buffalo Twp. The 1860 census of Lewisburg just has his initials W. K.

The 1850 census of E. Buffalo shows a George Bridge 17 living with Jacob 40 and Elizabeth 39.

Some of these records you can look at for free at beta.familysearch.org and Ancestry.com. For those you cannot see for free I suggest checking with your local libraries to see if they have Ancestry or Heritage Quest.

If you know where and when John and Elsie died I suggest getting their death certificates and obituaries. They should have their parents' names and the obits may have surviving siblings. Most likely they got their marriage license at the Union County Register of Wills. It may have data on their parents. The obits and death certificates of their children should help to confirm Elsie's maiden name.

Check with the Union County Historical Society to see if they can help you especially with the obits.
