These people are my mother and uncles. I have a picture dated 1911 that show Dewitt, Clarence, Jim, Daniel and Thomas who were twins. They were all brothers, Daniel is my great, grandfather. Edward James Uber was my grandfather and only son of my grandmother. EJ also had a son out of wedlock named Clyde Uber, he took his fathers name. he was a Courtney from Courtney Mills next to the farm he owned which was his father's Daniel on the road between North Liberty and Grove City. I think the road is now named Courtney Mills road. EJ Uber married my grandmother Florence Pricilla Johns who was adopted by Sarah and William Gough that were brother and sister that owned the farm on SR 19 or the road from Pittsburg to Erie, or Slippery Rock to Mercer. She changed her last name to Gough. She was from Reynoldsville, PA and was one of the youngest kids among 10 -12 and watched her father get horned by a bull on a Sunday sfternoon. Her mother had to give up the youngest kids and she was on of them. She went to the orphanage in Mercer. In order to keep that farm, she had to name her first born after William and Sarah, hence my Uncle Bill who was the oldest and moved his family to the farm on Courtney Mills. His first wife died in childbirth and he remarried, the child is Linda Kay Uber and she was raised by my mother and her mother at the Goughs farm. Bill later married Pat and the had two children Billy and Carol. Billy still lives in the farm on Courtney Mills.
My mother is Sarah Helen Milheim and she had my sister Kathleen Ann and me Robert Porter Milheim. Daniel Warren Uber married Maryian Piatt, the had 4 children, Barbara, Thomas, Lisa, and Daniel. Harold Wayne Uber has two children Ronald and Dana.
My grandfather was the grave digger and care taker at the North Liberty cemetary and the Presbyterian Church across the street is where most all of these people were members of. EJ and my grandmother were buried on the hill in Slippery Rock.
I will have to get my family Bible back from the person that borrowed it and I could probably give you better info and some dates, if you are still interested. The picture on the internet of "old people' from Mercer county are of my Uncle William and my mother Sarah. Someone in South dakota put the picture on the internet. Most all of these people went to Slippery Rock College where Ed of EJ was famous for pitching no hit no run ball games. He signed with the Pirate and pitched in one game and then got sick. the local ballfield is behind sankies store on rt 19 in North Liberty where they played in the local league, last time i was by a fenced backstop was still there.
I hope some of this helped. Robert Milheim
