      Samuel Homsher and Elizabeth Hawk (Haak) were married October 10, 1821 or 1822 in the neighborhood of Philadelphia. They staid in that vicinity until they had six children. Uncle Albert was their youngest, he was only one year old when they moved away and went to Columbiana Co, Ohio. My Mother remembered all this and she at that time was eight years old. (This must have been written by a daughter of Abigail Homsher born May 5, 1827.)

      They moved to Ohio in the Spring of 1835 and Uncle Frank was the first one that was born in Ohio. They lived in Ohio about 16 years when they moved to Noble Co, Indiana in 1851 in the fall of the year. Their youngest child at that time was six years old. (Mary A. Homsher born July 18, 1845.)

      They remained in Noble Co, Indiana the rest of their lives and they were married 59 years and 6 months when Grandmother passed away. She died May 1, 1882 at her home and Grandfather lived one year longer and died at Uncle Harrison Cramer´s home.

      After moving away from Pennsylvania, they did not write to their folks as they should have done and Mrs. Shoemaker, Grandfather´s older sister, said she thought that Sam was dead as she never heard anything more from him. I was at the home of Mahlon Freese who was Grandfather´s nephew and met Charles Shoemaker and his brother, Adam, who lived in Philadelphia and I saw some of these men´s sisters and their families. I thought they were very nice folks and they were very kind to me and they all lived in Philadelphia except Freese who lived 24 miles away in a small town. There were some other relatives that I did not see at all - they lived out of the City. I do not know how many brothers and sisters Grandfather had and do not know how many Grandmother had. I saw these folks in 1876.
