A Family With Deep Roots in Ohio

As I start this blog, I guess it's best to start with the basics - the who and the where. As time goes by, the details will emerge. This blog will focus on my maternal line - a diverse group of families. Represented in this line are Germans, Scotch - Irish, English, and French. Some first settled in the colonies of Maryland and Pennsylvania and went on to fight for freedon from the English crown. Others made the difficult decision to cross an ocean in the mid-1800's in hope of making a new life in this country. Today, their descendents can be found all across the United States, but the roots are deep in the soil of southwestern Ohio.

This blog will include stories, photographs, and vital statistics of the following families and those connected to them.
  • Bauer
  • Becker
  • Beyersdoerfer
  • Gates
  • Germann
  • Guy
  • Haitz
  • Koewler
  • Linn
  • Montgomery
  • Thill

I am looking forward to sharing this family with you. They are an interesting group of people!
Until later!
