Frederick Iseminger1 was bom about 1730 . He died about 1 Apr 1775.
Frederick married Margaret.
Margaret was bom about 1734.
Frederick Iseminger had a Will that named the eleven children and his wife Margaret. It was dated the "twenty eighth day of November in the year of our Lord seventeen Hundred seventy four", and at the time he lived in "Frederick County" in the Province of Maryland". (According to Graecia Britten, who supplied a copy of the original Will, the records are in the courthouse at Hagerstown, Washington County, Maryland. She further states that "the Iseminger Family Farm no doubt fell into the area of Washington County when it was separated from Frederick County".)

In the Will he gives his "two sons, adam and Philip all my working tools belonging to the Turners Trade to be equally divided." (The word "Turners" is both hard to read and understand it's meaning in todays language, hi a letter dated May 8,1978 from

Howard J. Iseminger who reviewed the Will he states: Evidently he was a 'wheelwright' or a furniture maker. The word Turners Trade is used in connection tools, back in those days probably everything was done by hand. He would have used Turner Tools to make wheel spokes, table legs and etc. hi this day and age all turning is done on the lathe. No doubt, Howard is right...reading it over 200 years later.

George and his wife were wanderers. Records in Pennsylvania show that he owned land in Somerset County (then Bedford County) as early as 1786. George and Mary Storm were bora in Pennsylvania and was of German parentage. He was a wheelwright by trade and a natural mechanic and it was said he could make anything in wood.
He moved to Hamilton county Ohio and their son Daniel was bom there in 1795. In Butler Co Ohio, deed records are found as early as 1808 that they owned land there. It is noted that lands purchased from the U S government, as this was in this case, were not entered on the tax records until six years after purchase. This would indicate that they may have been there as early as 1802. The land records that exist in Butler County are as follows:

3 Apr 1808 - U.S.A. to George Iseminger, the east half of Section 34, Twp 3, Range 1, (Deed book 13, page 296)

10 Apr 1808 - George sold 100 acres in the southeast corner of the east half of Section 34 to Michael Shook for $200. (Deed book B, Page 119)

2 May 1809 - George sold 55 and 68/100 acres in the northwest corner of Section 34 to George Shook for $111.36 (Deed book B, Page 147)

1 May 1816 - They sold 132 acres and a fraction to Joshus R. Robinson, Hugh Smith and Cyrus N. Smith for the sum of $3,500. (Deed book E, Page 564)

10 May 1816 - Thirty two and 47/100 acres was sold to the heirs of John Cowuill for $100 in the E 1/2 of Section 34. (Deed book E, Page 565)

It would appear that with the last 2 entries George and Mary Iseminger had disposed of their holdings in Ohio and at this time they moved to Jackson county, IN. George and Mary apparently believed in not only recording deeds to property, but other transactions as well, to January of 1878 copies of the following transactions were secured from Jackson County, IN Recorders Office at Brownstown, IN

5 Jan 1818 - the Iseminger bought from James Bigger Lot 53 of the original plat of Vallonia, Jackson County, IN for the sum of $138. (Deed record A, Page 92)

20 Mar 1818 - George Iseminger allowed Ephram Arnold to build a "Mildam" on his land in the N W 1/4 of Section 5, Township 4, Range 4, "to the line between myself and Aquilla Rogers" However "said Arnold is not to build his dam so high as to ingure (sic) the mill now owned by myself." (Deed record A, Page 78)

21 May 1819 - This is the most interesting recorded document. It states that for "the sum of $56 George Iseminger", purchased from John Hammon the following items:

One cow and yearling calf One rifle gun

Two bedsteads and bedding One chest with clothing One set of millright tools Spinning wheel and real One stew pot and skillet Three chairs One table One washing tub Three buckets Six books One large bible One millrights book A dresser and all that is on it Five sheep

One pair of hand bellows

and any other "household stuff' that now remains at George Isemingers mill in Driftwood Twp. (Deed record A, Page 107)

13 Aug 1825 - George and his wife Mary sold to Thomas Bottom for the sum of $1000 80 acres in the W 1/2 of the NW 1/4 of Section 4, Township 4, Range 4, East of the lands office. (George & Mary lived in Jackson County). Deed record B, Page 110)

8 Oct 1829 - George and Mary sold the E 1/2 of the NW 1/4 of Section 4, Township 4, Range 4 to Allan Shephard for $500. (The isemingers now lived in Monroe County Deed record B, Page 556)

7 Mar 1831 - The iseminger sold to Jonas Burkey Lot 553 of the original plat of Vallonia, Jackson County, IN for the sum of $20.

If you compare the 5 Jan 1818 entry with the 7 Mar 1831 entry you will note that they kept this property for 13 years and lost $118.".

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.

Jacob Iseminger, father of Dr. Iseminger, was farmer by occupation Ugh the greater part of his life, although in early manhood he and his jjer operated a mill in Monroe county, Indiana. He lived a busy and use-gjfe and died on the old home farm in 1879, lacking but three months of eighty years of age. He was twice married, his first union being with a Rogers, by whom he had three children, Martha, Elizabeth and George bington. After the death of his first wife, Jacob Iseminger wedded Eliza-Graybeal, who passed away in 1874, when more than seventy years of Both were earnest and consistent members of the Christian church. family numbered seven children, as follows .-"John, deceased; William, of " ^review; Hiram, who lost his life while serving"ln"the Civil war; Holbert |now living in Tappen, North Dakota; Peter R., who lives on the old home in Laporte county, Indiana; Margaret Jane, the wife of John Bone, of ysville, Kansas; and Rachel, deceased.

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.
From a letter written by George W, Iseminger, ( a descendant of Jacob and Nancy Rogers, ( his first wife)

4. Jacob Iseminger1 was born on 12 Feb 1800 in Hamilton County 0. He died on 14 Nov 1879 in Laport County Westville IN and was buried on 17 Nov 1879 in Westville Cemetery Westville IN. Jacob married Elizabeth Graybeal on 6 Mar 1834 in Monroe County IN.

5. Elizabeth Graybeal2 was bom on 20 Oct 1807 in Virginia. She died on 10 Nov 1876 in Laport County Westville IN and was buried on 13 Nov 1876 in Westville Cemetery Westville IN.


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.".
