I see that you are descended from Joseph Fauver b 1775. Here is a story I have about Joseph.
When he was 5 years old and George and Elizabeth were married and in 1798 when George and family left NJ for Lansing NY and later moved to Newfield NY, Joseph and his family accompenied them. When George's 2nd child William F. left Newfield to make his home in Eaton Twp. Lorain Co. Oh. in 1830 Joseph and family joined them a year or two later. Upon arriving in Lorain Co. they lived with William and family until a log cabin could be built in the area for Joseph and family.

Source for this story. A compilation of Earl J. Favuer

Joseph Fauver b 1775 lived in Lorain Co. Oh from c 1832 to his death in 1842 and is buried in Eaton twp. in Butternut Ridge Cemetery Lorain Co. Oh.
Joseph had many descendants in Lorain Co. who are outstanding leaders in the community.

But I don't have proof that George was his father but it seems reasonable. I also have two more Joseph Fauvers which I think have gotten somewhat confused. I also have Joseph Fauver buried in Bridgeton NJ and also in Harper's Ferry WVA. Don't know how that can happen.
