ETERLY, NEWMEYER posted by Pat Colbert on Friday, August 4, 2000
I am seeking information on any families with the surname Newmeyer. This family lived in the area around Tippin, Ohio at least in the 1850-1860 time frame, probably prior to that. Specifically I am seeking info on the family of Isaac and Walburg/Walbreck Newmeyer and their children. Isaac and Walburg were in their early thirties by 1850 1850 and were deceased by 1860. To the best of my knowledge at the moment their children were: Catherine, Lavina or Ludimer?, Emiline or Melie?, Josephine, Andrew, and Theresa. There may have been another child named Joseph Adam, born around 1852. Isaac and Walburg were from Germany. All children were born in the US. After the death of the parents it looks as if the oldest daughter Catherine and some of her siblings went to live with a relative or neighbor named John Eterly.
