Isch Bible

I have recently come into possession of a very old bible. It is quite worn and falling apart, but it seems to have belonged to someone named Ettie Isch. The inside front cover says Ettie Isch, Bowling Green, OH. It seems to have belonged to a child, as there is writing on the inside fly leaf that looks like a child's writing. I'm not sure who it belonged to for sure, or how it came into my family's possession. Inside there is a certificate of graduation of the second grade for Dewey Johnson, my GGrandfather. Perhaps they were childhood friends? Also found a couple of prayer meeting calendars from 1899 and 1900 inside, one of which is signed by a John Isch. If anyone has any information on this family, and possibly their connection to mine, please email me at bmfap@netzero.net

My mother's father was an Ish. His grandfather is from the Carey, Ohio area. His name was John C. ISCH and he married Nancy Ann Grady. They had 10 children (Jacob, William (my ggrandfather), John, David, Nancy, James, Charles, Firdnana, George, and Mary ISCH.) John was born in Switzerland about 1821. John's son William, my ggrandfather ended up in Montana and raised his family near Great Falls, Montana(1885). Could the Bible you wrote about be connected?

This is a long shot...but my greatgrandmother, Emma Emily Isch could have been in that area...She married Joseph A. Siemer before the turn of the century in Morrow, Ohio...eventually settling in Corning, Ohio...this could have been a nickname for her...She was born in France and came with her mother and Father to Wichita, Kansas...Joseph met her there and brought her back to the Morrow area...

Bonnie: I'm afraid this has nothing to with Bible. I have a question for you. You mentioned your Isch line went to Montana- do you have an Ivan Isch in your line? I Appreciate any help you can give me on this. Thank You

I am sorry I don't have a Ivan Isch in my family line. You can research my Ish/Isch line on Roots Web.com,

Thanks for writing and if I can be of any other help please write.

My family is from the morrow area. It's been so long now I don't recall for certain where I pisked up the bible, but my g-grandmother lived in morrow (maineville, actually) her entire life. She was born a Reynolds, later became a Barot. I picked up the Bible through either her of her daughter (my grandmother.)

I feel strongly that this could be connected to my great grandmother, Emma Emily Isch. Her mother's name is still unknown...but this could be the link that I am looking for...I responded a few years ago...bot never heard back from you.
My ggrandparents would have been in Morrow after 1880.Please respond! anniebz@hotmail.com
