Jakob Oberlies was born in Germany in about 1770. He married Elizabeth Seidelin b. abt 1770 before 1796 in Germany. They had three children that we are aware of David, Elizabeth and Martin b. 1803. Martin came to America in 1835, through Pennsylvania to Indiana, where he had a large family. He married first (in Germany?) Catherine Bangle of Germany. She was born in 1807 and died in 1846. He married 2nd Joanna Rouls also from Germany.
One of his fourteen children was George Washington Oberlies, born in 1844 and died in 1899. G. W. married Sarah Virginia McMindes b. 1851 in Wisconsin, daughter of Eliza Call b. abt 1832 in Vermont and John T. McMindes/McMinds/McMines b. 1826 in Steuben, New York.
Elizabeth Call remarried after John's death in 1875. In 1898 she married neighbor William H. Farrow, in Hamilton County, Indiana. She listed her parents as Jacob Call and Sarah Hutchinson both of Vermont. I have some information on some of the individuals above, which I am of course very willing to share, but am looking for information on Elizabeth's parents. Is anyone working on these lines?
