Came from bedford, PA, founded the town of New Bedford, Coshocton Ohio. He laid out the first 55 plots of land, naming it after his home town of Bedford PA. He and his 3 sons; Henry, Adam and David each built a home. Sold land for a school for $6...
Somehow, he must be the connection.... We just need to research this more

RE: Gonter line
It is certainly a possibility and I agree that no one will agree on those name spellings as being one & the same family... It is interesting to note that all of my other families were there so where were my Gonsers? (they were there too, I just need to find the missing link). Thanks!

RE: Gonter line
Hello, I have done some research and it seems that the Gonter, Gonser, Guenther, etc... family must be related. Clearly they were from the same areas and there must be an answer to the changes in spelling of the name, but I don't have any answers to that. My line moved to Indiana & Michigan. My grandma was a Gonser & I am named after her. She played the piano (like I do) and was very short... Pic of her on her gravesite - Lydia Gonser. I love to share info...

You're welcome!
They were so quick because of all the snow I didn't know if my dog & I could even get to the grounds, let alone find the stones. They don't plow it & it's a long walk from the street. So I claimed them today after we got back & took the pics. Didn't want to claim them & find out it ws impossible to get in.
Hope they help! We needed the exercise!
