I live in eastern Nebraska and have been researching my family genealogy, as well as my husband's side of the family, for a few years now.|
Many of my summers off from working at a middle school are spent traveling to where our ancestors are from, hoping to find something more about them.
I am also researching the family farm where I grew up, originally homesteaded by the David H. Goodrich family in 1873, north of Geneva Nebraska.
I think this site has been great for having a place to share what I have found, for the present and future generations to come.

|Charlie Powers||RE: John Acton photo|
You are very welcome. I grew up in Trenton and now live in McCook. Can't stay away from the hometown. I knew John quite well.
|Leonard Smith||RE: Harry and Katie Acton|
You are very welcome
|Betty ||RE: Acton photos|
I have a picture of Harry as a young man from the same family photo as the Andrew and Iona Grace photos I posted. I'll post Harry's close up soon. My husband's great aunt (Iona Grace Creath) married Andrew Acton. The family photo is of the children and grandchildren of George Washington Creath and Melissa Jane Myers. Happy Holidays.

|Linda Jones||Peter and Susanna Guth graves|
Thank you for sponsoring their graves. They were my great great great grandparents. I was fortunate to visit the birthplace of Peter Guth on the Ransbrunnerhof bei Eppenbrun in 1980.
I am a grandson of Ida Aspegren and happened to find the picture of the Aspegren that you so had posted to the site, Thank you, have never seen this before and would love to see any photo's of the Aspegren's that you might have, as we have only been able to see a very few of these from our early parents and grandparents.
Thanks, Dave Aspegren

Christian is not the father of Esther this is proven in many ways. The early researchers did not have access to all the records and I have their notes and stories and it was created for a reunion in 1904 and they based it on 1790 census (having no John) but he shows up in Kentucky with his children in 1844 land record recorded so that is the proof.
But go with what you want personally.
The last record I have for her is 1850 census Liberty township, Jefferson, Iowa age 82 years old born NC (both Christian and his father John are listed in 1768 in Frederick County, Maryland records so she would be born in Maryland but would have come to North Carolina in 1773 when they are recorded leaving maryland. In Libery Church book someone wrote in she died 1863 but they had different age 70 I believe so not sure if this is correct info.
I would guess she is buried somewhere in the Dunkard community of Jefferson, Iowa but have heard of Illinois and maybe she travelled before she died. I have not been able to find her 1860 census. That is all I know

Before you share Esther's parents are JOhannes Zaher (no Christian) and Barbara Miller (she is one died before 1790 with tree on her).
I have put up the story of Johannes Zaher and a document that proves the family. Esther is listed as Esther Peevler but it is her. I have all the documents and proof. I went to Kentucky and found the records. I was the one who finally proved Christian was not the father but the child. I have more documents of him and his father in Maryland.
Johannes Zaher born in Switzerland married a lady we do not know her name and they had 4 children two girls and Christian (1742 confirmed) and John Jr (he was born about 1749 in Pennsylvania) Their mother died shortly there after and then Johannes married Barbara Miller and had the other children including Esther. Barbara died hanging out the wash so in 1790 census of Rowan NC Christian Sears had his family and his dad's family with the young children including esther. When Christian died he had a detailed will and listed all his children and there was no Esther. The confusion came about because he lived to 101 so people made up Christian sr. born 1730 and christian Jr born 1750 but this was all assumption by early researchers.
Esther Sears parents are Johannes Zaher (later John Sears) and Barbara Miller. I have left a story about Johannes Zaher on his page which is attached to Esther.
