A Virtual Cemetery created by kricker61

Vandemark (Vandermark) / Powell Family

My wife was born in the small town of Gomer in Allen County, Ohio. After getting started on tracing my family ancestors, I began to research her ancestors as well. Known deceased descendants of Thomas Vandermark and William Powell - the first family members on her father's side of the family to immigrate to America - are included in this "Virtual Cemetery". I would be glad to update based on information and/or add other descendants you wish to provide. Thomas Vandermark, who was born Holland in 1643. He settled at Esopus (now Kingston), Ulster County, NY about 1665, and soon there after removed to the new settlement of Marbletown near by, where he died in 1724, age 81 years. He married Jacomyntje Jacobs about 1674. She died April 2, 1693. Both are buried at Marbletown. Over the years, some of the family moved from New York to Walpek, Sussex County, New Jersey. Jeremiah Vandemark & family including son Daniel Vandemark moved to central Ohio, and purchased some land there in 1810. Daniel married Sarah Hubbel in Fairfield County in 1812. While in Fairfield Co. OH, Daniel served two tours in the War of 1812 with Great Britain. He was drafted near New Lancaster, OH serving under Captain Peter Huber at New Lancaster guarding prisoners taken by Commodore Perry. He also served at Upper Sandusky under Jon Harrison. (Reference: National Archives Record). It appears that in addition to farming, Jeremiah & Daniel became tavern licensed keepers in Madison Twp., Franklin County Ohio between March 1819 and 1829. Jeremiah was buried in Groveport, Franklin County area when he died in 1829. After youngest son Daniel Vandemark Jr. was born in 1835, Daniel, migrated with wife Sarah and their ten children to Allen Co. OH about 1837 where he lived about one year. The family then moved to Putnam Co. OH and leased land in Sugar Creek Twp., for ten years. He then bought an uncleared farm in the same Twp., on which he lived until his death Feb. 8, 1857. His wife Sarah died Feb. 10, 1869. William Vandemark, older brother of Daniel Jr., was the victim of a most famous bank robbery that occurred at the Columbus Grove Exchange Bank during the early morning of August 8, 1891. As the robber was leaving the bank, he bumped into William who was entering the bank on business. The panicked robber began firing his revolver wildly, one shot struck and fatally wounded William and five others lodged in the buildings along Main Street. His assailant was captured and convicted during his trial in Ottawa that the newspapers called "one of the greatest in the country". After an appeal was denied, the robber was hung at Ohio State Penitentiary.Jill's 7th great grandfather William Powell was born in Wales in 1641. He and his brother Jeremiah immigrated to America 1684. William purchased land on banks of the Schuylkill River in what is now part of West Philadelphia and started a ferry business. 3rd great grandfather Daniel L. Powell moved from Pennsylvania to Hancock County Ohio in the 1840s and started his family there.
