Rossman Family Genealogy Forum
I noticed the path of your ancestors and wondered if you are descended from Peter Zehner, the eldest son of Adam and Maria Catherine Mertz Zehner. Maria was the daughter of Johann Heinrich Mertz and Anna Maria Rossman. Peter went to Ashland County Ohio and from there his descendants went to northern Indiana and southern Illinois. Even though I am a Hoosier, my line is from Peter's grandson Benjamin who went to Illinois. I believe one of Peter's brothers joined him in Ohio and then moved on to Indiana also.
