Errors and Omissions

1. Submitted by Judi Talbot on 19 May 2009
p. 67. The mother of Elizabeth Mantz is reported as Christina Schellhamer [sic]. Should have been Elizabeth Schmetter. Src: Claude W. Unger, "Zion's West Penn Cemetery Records, West Penn Twp., Schuylkill Co., PA 1850-1914," 1941; FHL microfilm no. 0940446, item 14, p. 10, no. 145.

2. Submitted by Nancy Wagner on 31 May 2009.
p. 31. Family of Esther3 Zehner, # 19, (peter2, Adam1) who m. -?- Wagner was intentionally omitted because I was unable to discover where they went.

However, a Fayette County, Iowa, history, pp. 911-912, reports: John Wagner, b. PA, m. Esther Zaner in PA. Children b. in PA were Susan, Isaac, Kathrine. Then the family moved to Delaware Co., Ohio, where John, Joseph, Esther, Sarah, Anna, Peter, and Harriet were born. They then moved to Elkader, Clayton Co., Iowa in 1850. Research is ongoing on this family and will be included in volume 2.
