We are related! Philip Gohn is our mutual 6-times grandfather. I am so grateful to have met you, Tom. I could not have gathered this much info with out your kind assistance.

Hello again! One minor detail I forgot to mention in my last post was that autosomal DNA test results for myself, my mom and aunt also seem to substantiate a Gohn connection. My family tree is located at... trees.ancestry.com/tree/9907379/family.

Hi! I obtained a copy of the 1773 Will of Adam Gohn and the 1797 Will of his daughter, Margaret Gohn, both from Windsor Twp., York County. Both wills clearly indicate that Adam's daughter, Elizabeth (b. abt 1748), was living at the times of their deaths. In fact, Margaret's will in 1797 also mentions her sister, Elizabeth, and Elizabeth's daughter, Margaret. Although there is no record of marriage, I believe Elizabeth married Jacob Gipe/Geip (1750-1844) sometime before 1783, since their first child, Catharine, is born in in that year. The Geips' daughter, Anna Margaret, was baptized in 1787 at the same church the Gohns also attended, St. Luke's in Chanceford Twp., York Cty, PA. The sponsors were John Jacob and Anna Margaret Gohn. To further make my case, Jacob Geip and Adam Gohn's widow, Catharine, are documented as residing in Windsor Twp. between 1780 and 1786, along with 2 other Gohns' sons. The children of Jacob and Elizabeth Geip were: Catharine, Maria Magdalena, Mary, Anna Margaret, John and Jacob.

I am the 3rd great granddaughter of Solomon Seymour and Elizabeth Ann Salts. This has been confirmed by DNA.

My 2nd great-grandfather was estranged from the family and would give no information on them to anyone. The DNA test is how we finally made the connection.

His name was David Seymour, born 1 May 1824 in Jackson County, Ohio, died 28 Apr 1882 in Rankin, Vermilion, Illinois. His name is not listed in your family history of Solomon's family. I am very interested in any information you have on the family.

My grandfather, Emil Peter Gohn, emigrated in the early 20th century from what is now Brasov, Romania. I've done a bit of research about Romania's ethnic Germans but can't uncover the family's original home in Germany. Does anyone know?

I just found your site and I am interested in sharing information. A quick comment on military service in Bavaria and German states, all males were required to serve for 2 years in the military. While there were no wars when Lorenz was 18, there were no guarantees that war would not break out at any time. There were a lot of men that came to America to escape service, only to get caught up in our Civil War.

I had previously had an archivist look up my Reindl ancestors in the Amberg/Kummersbruck/ Moos area of Bavaria. You can see some of my research at trees.ancestry.com/tree/45231531/family.

I will scan the copies that I have of the church registers and add them to my ancestry tree.

Regards,

I am working on a family tree for our daughter, Jodi Ann Craiglow. If you are interested, I could work up some info on the descendants of Millard (five children: Lloyd William, Donald Oscar (Denver), Theodore Albert, Herbert Millard, and Alice Marie. Herb was the father of 4 and Alice was the mother of 1. The others had no children.

I was so excited to see your book. I had often assumed that Solomon and David Sr. were brothers, but was sidelined by the info that states Solomon was born in Pennsylvania, while David's records show Virginia. How do you account for the differences -- possibly an error on the part of the census taker or the person giving the information. Do we have Johannes in Virginia at any time?

Looking forward to any more info you have available on our early ancestors.
Dottie
