Elizabeth Graybeal - Jacob Iseminger
John Graybeal - Rachel Duncan
Elizabeth Graybeal was the daughter of John and Rachel Duncan Graybeal. Note that she and her mother were
light years ahead of other women, they used their maiden name in their married name, what a revolutionary idea, too bad more
women are not as smart. Nothing is known about her parents, other than Elizabeth was bom in Virginia and there were Graybeals
living around Geo and Mary in Monroe IN and also in Ohio.".
Duncan - Clann Dhonnachaidh. From a chief of Clan Donnachaidh "Fat Duncan," who led his clan at Bannockburn. They
held lands in Forfarshire, the barony of Lundie, and the estate of Gourdie.
THINK RACHELS MOTHERS NAME WAS
Jacob born in Hamilton Co, Ohio Moved with parents at age 17 to Monroe Co. Ind. Became quite a hunk of manhood 6 feet tall
weighing 190 pds. Married Nancy Rogers. Nancy's father was a veteran of the Revolutionary war from Pennsyvania, He became
quite a public figure in Indiana politics before his death cir.1839. Jacob and nancy took up land and farmed in Monroe Co,
Ind. until Nancy's death in 1833. All their children born in Monroe Co, Married Elizabeth Graybeal,. they moved to a farm
in Porter Co, Ind. where they stayed a couple of years, then they moved over to La Porte Co, Ind where they bought the original
160 acres that was later to become a part of the home place of 640 acres which jacob owned at his death. This property lies
about 2 1/2 miles southwest of Westerville in La Porte Co. One of our relatives with whom i have corosponded has a copy or
the original land-grant certificate issued by the government in favor of Jacob, dated 3-20-1837
All children born in northern Indiana. Jacob and Elizabeth buried in La Porte Co.
Note - a fragmenting story passed down to me to the effect that the relationship between Jacob and Nelson Holmes was decidedly
strained due to inter-marriage arrangement that jacob did not approve of. This can probably be traced to the 2nd marriage
of John Graybeal to Elizabeth Holmes., Nelson Holmes evidently urged or wanted the marriage and Jacob being Elizabeths granddaughter
didnt want it.

1. Donald W Evans Jr., Jacob Iseminger. "Austin C. Graybeal living in Des Moines IA sent Mertie Iseminger a copy
of an old family record on Jacob Iseminger. I have used this information in my genealogy of Jacob.
Jacob and Elizabeth can be found in the 1850 Indiana U S Census La Porte Co Pg 330 Line 31, Jacob was 50 bom O and Elizabeth
43 bom VA. Martha 24 IN and Geo W 20 IN were Nancy Rogers's children. John 16 IN, Wm 14 IN, Hiram 11 IN, Margaret 19 IN, Holbert
5 IN, Rachel 3 IN, were Elizabeth's children and all of them were living with Jacob and Elizabeth in 1850 US Census.
Mormon genealogy gotten from the Fort Wayne Public Library also was used in recording Jacob's life.
My Daughter, mother and I visited the Westville Cemetery, many of the stones were weathered, broken and hard, to impossible
to read, but we did gain knowledge that there are Isemingers living in Westville who are related to Jacob and Elizabeth. We,
also, got a list of 25 Iseminger's buried in the Westville Cemetery, 17 of which are related to Jacob and Elizabeth.
Wayne Iseminger, who is living in Westville, IN was very kind to send me a copy of Iseminger genealogy compiled by N Kathryn
Dingeman who claims Frederick and Margaret Iseminger are her great, great, great, great grandparents.
Jacob was a fanner. Early in his life he and his brother operated a mill in Monroe County, IN. Jacob was married twice,
his first wife was Nancy Rogers, they were married sometime around 1821 or 22, they had six children. She and her son, Aquilla
Rogers, died in child birth in the Monroe IN area. There was an Aquilla Rogers that did business with George Iseminger, no
doubt he was related to Nancy Rogers somehow. Jacob and Elizabeth were married on Mar 6 1834 and shortly after moved to Westville,
IN, where they lived and raised their nine children. Jacob and Elizabeth are buried in the Westville cemetery. Jacob and Elizabeth's
home still stands and is occupied out side of Westville IN. Elizabeth died nine days short of her 69th birthday. Jacob died
three months short of his 80th birthday. Jacob had 15 children, William Iseminger was the 2nd child of Elizabeth and Jacob.".
2. Donald W Evans, Elizabeth Graybeal. "Elizabeth was the second wife of Jacob Iseminger according to family genealogy.
Mormon computer genealogy states this as being correct.
Elizabeth Graybeal was the daughter of John and Rachel Duncan Graybeal. Note that she and her mother were light years
ahead of other women, they used their maiden name in their married name, what a revolutionary idea, too bad more women are
not as smart. Nothing is known about her parents, other than Elizabeth was bom in Virginia and there were Graybeals living
around Geo and Mary in Monroe IN and also in Ohio.".
