I connected one person to all of those places through census and tax records.
I have the Civil War records for John Sebastian Hershberger (1840-1925) which I had already obtained through Footnote.com. However, I did not know that the complete record may contain affidavits. Thanks. I know the names of all of his children and their spouses. Even tracked down his eldest daughter, Anna N. who first married Marshall Hite and then Lewis Heitmuller, who lived most of her life in Washington, D.C.
The problem has been information on his father, John S., who was born abt. 1815 in Wuerttemberg, Germany, and his mother Mary Ann. I know he was born in Wuerttemberg because in the 1920 census John Sebastian was visiting his daughter Anna N. in D.C. and listed his father's birthplace as Wuerttemberg, Germany. Everyone researching this line is either stuck at this point or has unverifiable information.
