Are there any descendants of John P. Dresbach (b. 20 Aug 1835, Ross Co. OH) and/or his brother William Dresbach (b. 1 Apr 1837, Ross Co. OH) who are interested in learning more about the lives of these two men? They are descendants of Gabriel Dresbach (b. 1805, Northumberland, PA), son of John Dresbach (b. 1778) and Catherine Spyker. From the Jacob Dreisbach/Magdalena Buchs line. A descendant is working on the story of their lives, including the Civil War experience, and is happy to share his information.
I am looking to find ancestry line for my ggg grandmother Louisa Dreisbach Hooven, born around the 1820s in PA, probably Carbon Co. She married Samuel Hooven in 1846 in Beaver Meadow, Carbon Co., PA. They had three children, Margaret (my gg grandmother), and two others, I think. They resided mostly in Weatherly, PA area. She is listed with her husband in censuses 1850, 70, and 80 censuses, and widowed in the 1900 census. She ended up in Wilkes-Barre area. She supposedly died in 1908 but I haven’t found evidence yet.
