Bio of Coyner Family

The COYNER Family: The old German name of Keinadt became softened into Coyner after a due process of mellowing in the climate of America. One Michael Keinadt and Margaret Diller, his wife, located in Lancaster county, Pa., where a son was born to them August 8, 1768, who was christened John and was the first who spelled his name Coyner. He accompanied his parents to Carlisle in 1789 and from there crossed over into Virginia, where he found a wife in the person of Hannah Lavel, who was born in 1778. In 1814, John Coyner turned his face westward and after a tedious journey across mountains and down rivers reached the garden spot of the Scioto valley known as Ross county. He picked out Concord township as a desirable locality and settled on a farm near the village of Frankfort, which was the scene of his subsequent operations. The memorials in Greenlawn cemetery, near by, inform us that John Coyner departed this life September 8, 1852, at the age of eighty-four years, and that his faithful wife, who survived him four years, sank to rest in 1856. John and Hannah Coyner gathered about them a numerous family of children, of whom the following is a complete list: Margaret, Elizabeth, Sarah, Susan, Hannah, Jane, Harriet, Julia Ann, Jemima, Rebecca, Christian and David. From these children, most of whom married and reared families, have sprung the large number of Coyners and their relatives under other names, who are scattered throughout Ross county and other Ohio counties as well as distant states. Margaret married Martin Grove and had eight children, four of whom are living; Elizabeth became the wife of Martin Peterson; Sarah first married Edward Shobe, her second husband being John Beard; Susan married Jonas Peterson; Hannah, George Clouser; Julia A., Erasmus Tullys; Jemima, William Fisher; Rebecca, Richard Waugh; Christian married Elizabeth Teter, had a large family, and moved to Iowa where he died. David, youngest child of John Coyner, was born in Augusta county, Va., April 4, 1812, and was only two years old when his parents rested from their long journey near Frankfort. As soon as he was old enough he embarked in farming on his own account and became one of the successful men of his community. June 5, 1834, he was married to Sarah, daughter of Adam Mallow, founder of one of the most extensive and influential of Ross county families. The records in the family cemetery near Frankfort state that David Coyner passed away September 29, 1892, but his wife survives at the age of eighty-four years. The following summary disposes of their large family of sons and daughters: Jane married Samuel Bryant and now lives in Indiana and Noah at Frankfort, Ohio; John A. is at the old homestead; Hannah M. married G. M. Eichelberger and lives in Fayette county; Martha married George Hanawalt, of Concord township; Emma D. married J. B. Seelig, now living in the same township.
