Hi,
Do you have any further info on Jacob Rice. My gggggrandfather was Simon Rice b. abt 1800 and lived in Butler County, PA where his son William was born abt. 1828. Simon later moved to Mauckport, IN. I have information that there was a Jacob Rice in Butler CO in 1810, and I think he could be Simon's father. Do you know anything that could help me find out if I'm on the right track?
Thank you.

Paula, I have no Simon RICE but I do have a copy of the book "GENEALOGY BROMWELL" which includes the earlier Jacob RICE who married Salome PHILABAUM the widow of Conrad. Please e-mail me at waughtel@oz.net and I can give you any particulars on THE RICE FAMILY portion in the book.
Thank you for writing me.

I'm interested in seeing more of what you have...
My research indicates my huiet line started in PA and then move to OH. I think so does yours but since I'm new at this, it is hard for me to follow. Do you have this in a GEDCOM file? Could you email me directly at huiet@earthlink.net?

Thanks!!!

Surnames: Leffler, Danforth, King
I can provide you with some additional information on your posting for Adaline Leffler, who you report was married to a Mr. Danforth. Adaline was my great, great grandmother. The Mr. Danforth she married was Thomas Danforth, who was born June 2, 1806 in Onieda, New York. They married December 21, 1834 in Coyndon, Indiana. Thomas died February 26, 1878 in New Albany, Indiana, where he had worked in a bank most of his career. I have all of her children, but her daughter was Harriet Adeline Danforth (my great grandmother) who was born May 5, 1836 in New Albany, Indiana. She married Robert Quigley King, second fire chief of Springfield, Ohio, in New Albany, Indiana on January 15, 1887. Harriet died on July 13, 1906 and is buried in Fercliff Cemetery in Springfield, Ohio. Her mother, Adaline was alive and living with her at the time of Harriet’s death. I have a photo of Harriet, if anyone is interested in having it e-mailed to them. I do not know where Adaline died or where she is buried.

My grandfather, her son, was Robert Leffler King, who went all his life as “Leffler”. There are many members of the King family who have “Leffler” as part of their name. If you run “Robert Quigley King” though Goggle, you will find a web site that gives a lot of the genealogy on the Robert Quigley King and Harriet Adeline Leffler family.

Mr. Hamlin ~ I would love anything you don't mind sharing. Do you know if your Leffler's connect in any way with the Leffler's that were in either Decatur or Shelby county, IN?

Please e-mail me at waughtel@oz.net and we can discuss this in further detail.

Antoinette:

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately, most of what I know about the Lefflers I found in your highly useful posting, which I just bumped into yesterday with a Google search.

Here is what I believe to be my Leffler line.

1. Jacob Leffler/Loeffler, born about 1700, place unknown; wife’s name, time and place of death unknown.

2. Jacob Leffler, born about 1735. He married Elizabeth Huet/Hujet/Huyet/Hewitt, who was born on June 9, 1745 in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The date of their marriage is unknown. He died about 1784 in Donegal Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. She died in 1823 in Corydon, Indiana.

3. Isaac Leffler, who was born on December 4, 1777, place unknown. He married Margaret Vance, who was born on February 16, 1782 (place unknown), on March 25, 1801 in West Middletown, Pennsylvania. She died on November 28, 1850 (maybe July 13, 1839) and is buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Corydon, Indiana. He died on August 15, 1833 and is also buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Corydon, Indiana.

4. Adaline Leffler, who was born March 8, 1815. She married Thomas Danforth, who was born June 2, 1806 in Onieda, New York. They married December 21, 1834 in Coyndon, Indiana. Thomas died February 26, 1878 in New Albany, Indiana, where he had worked in a bank most of his career. She died February 1907, likely in Springfield, Ohio. I take the date of death from you. She was living with her daughter, Harriet in Springfield when Harriet died in 1906. However, she is not buried with her daughter and I have never been able to find an obituary for her in the Springfield Newspaper. Besides Harriet and Mary Margaret (discussed below), their other children were Thomas Leffler Danforth, Thomas Cyrus Danforth, Charles Edward Danforth and Ann Eliza Danforth. I have no vital statistics or other information on these other Danforth children.

5. Harriet Adeline Danforth, who was born May 5, 1836 in New Albany, Indiana, married Robert Quigley King, second fire chief of Springfield, Ohio, in New Albany, Indiana on January 15, 1887. Robert Quigley King was born August, 13, 1832 in Tarlton, Ohio. Harriet died on July 13, 1906 in Springfield, Ohio and is buried in Ferncliff Cemetery in Springfield, Ohio. The obituary for Harriet just recited vital statistics, as opposed to the obituary for Harriet’s husband, Robert Quigley King, which was front page, big photograph and carried into two more pages. Robert Quigley King died November 26, 1917 in Springfield, Ohio is also buried in Ferncliff Cemetery in Springfield, Ohio. Robert’s brother, Col. (Civil War) David King married a sister of Harriet, Mary Margaret Danforth on December 22, 1864 in New Albany, Indiana. Mary Margaret was born July 8, 1838 in New Albany, Indiana and died on February 8, 1907 in Springfield, Ohio. Both she and David are buried in Ferncliff Cemetery in Springfield, Ohio.

6. Robert Leffler King, who was born August 24, 1863, in Springfield, Ohio. He used Leffler as his first name all his life – probably since his father’s first name was also Robert. On June 4, 1891, he married Lola Montez Askam (Ascham), who was born March 4, 1868 in Vanlue (Hancock County), Ohio. Lola Montez King was the most straight laced lady who ever lived. She mentioned matter of factly in her autobiography that she attended a temperance convention during her honeymoon. However, as a great, unfathomable mystery, her parents (also very straight lace) named her after the California gold rush vamp, Lola Montez, the former courtesan and ruin of King Ludwig of Prussia (his castle is the Disney standard) and the reputed inspiration for the saying, “What Lola wants, Lola gets”. They spent much of their lives working a large farm “Grasslands Farm” just north of Vanlue, Ohio, but they later moved back to Springfield to manage his father’s real estate holdings in Springfield, Ohio as his father aged and then died, which Leffler did until his death on October19,1935, at the home of his daughter, Jessie King Cave in Springfield, Ohio. Lola died June 27,1964 at a nursing home in Columbus, Ohio. They are both buried in Ferncliff Cemetery in Springfield, Ohio.

7. Hamlin Caldwell King, Sr., who was born June 28, 1894. In July of 1940, he married Rose Marie Jetmore, who was born December 10, 1906 in Kalida Ohio. They lived most of their lives in Springfield, Ohio. They retired to Zepyrhills, Florida. He died at a hospital in Dade City, Florida on October 25, 1978. She died in Zephyrhills, Florida on May 22, 2001. They are both buried in Oakside Cemetery, Zephyrhills, Florida. He gave one of his sons the middle name Leffler.

Here is a link to a web site that gives a lot more detail on this family.

http://www.shypuppy.net/Caldwells/D0003/G0000083.html#I11669


To answer your question, it looks to me like New Albany is in Floyd County, Indiana and Corydon is in Harrison County, Indiana. So, sad to say, I know nothing of the Lefflers in Decatur and Shelby counties. In fact, while the Leffler name (including may own brother’s middle name) recurs in my extended family with great frequency, I could find no trace of my Leffler ancestry until I lucked into your posting. It is a great mystery to me how my great grandfather and his brother met and married two ladies from New Albany, Indiana. One speculations is that their grandparents, Cyrus Danforth and Mary Clark Danforth lived in Friendsville, Ohio, which is in Medina, County. However, Friendsville is nowhere near Springfield. Another possibility, I suppose, is that they may have been attending Wittenberg College in Springfield. The King family had a close association with Wittenberg in its early days.

I would love to see anything you have to post or e-mail me about the Leffler family.
