It's great that you met Viktor. My mother always knew that my grandfather had a cousin Viktor who was an artist, but I only recently found out exactly who he is and how amazing his work is. After I saw the web site about the exhibit, I sent off for a catalog.
From the research I've seen, David's father was Jacob Schrecengost, Jr., and his mother was Jacob's second wife, Hannah Houser. (His first wife was Christiana ? who died in 1837). I think some researchers have Jacob Jr. tied to a Jacob Sr. whose line goes back to Yost, but I really haven't had a chance to research it myself yet.
I have several newspaper articles about David which were written in his later years and which give a lot of detail about his family and his war record. I also sent off for and received his Civil War pension file.
I actually live in Texas, but I was born in Virginia. Annie Jane Schrecengost married James Tittle Hood and later moved to Nottoway Co., VA., where my grandfather David Alexander Hood was born.
I can't remember off-hand who Alan is, but I'll check my records and get back to you. Have you heard of the baseball player Ossee Schrecengost mentioned in the catalog? I found out about him on the internet, but I can't seem to fit him into Warren's family.
I hope we can exchange information. You can reply here or e-mail me at email@example.com.
