Title: John Birkhimer Perry Co. Ohio
Post by: Deacon on April 19, 2009, 04:35:14 PM
WANTED: Information on a John Birkhimer b:1765? [d]28 March 1839  64 yr 5mo 24da Buried Somerset Methodist Cemetery.
             Charles Hood Birkhimer s/o Arthur & Temperance d. 27 Oct 1843 Buried Somerset Methodist Cemetery.

 Is this John the father of of Nathan Birkhimer? The 1850 cenus show Nathan's father was from Pennsylvania and it would appear from the data this John was old enough to be Nathans's father and the child Charles Hood would match his mother's maiden name. I've been told it was common for the middle name to match the mother's maiden name.I think Arthur could have been a mis-reading for Nathan. Nathan and his wife Tempreance (Hood) Birkhimer shows up later in the Iowa 1856 special census.
