  • ID: I67
  • _UID: BE6719DCC7CA4C909AC51BBDE381934E0386
  • Name: Barbary MOMENTELLER
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: 1826 in Ohio
  • Death: BEF 1870 in Maybe Fayette Co, IL
  • Note:

    She married Abraham Morledge who had 5 children. Then she had at least one child, John, b 1849.
    Abraham 1st wife was a cousin of John Downs Jr, who married Barbary?s sister, Mary Ann.

    In 1850 they were in Carroll Co, Oh with Barbary's mother, Barbary Momenteller, living with them.
    1850 Brown twp, Carroll Co, Oh, Oct 10, p.178:
    Abraham Morledge - 31, Ohio
    Barbary - 26, Ohio
    Eli - 12, Ohio
    George - 10, Ohio
    Diannah - 8, Ohio
    Mary - 6 Ohio
    Harriet - 4 Ohio
    John H. - 8/12, Ohio
    Barbary Momenteller - 65, Germany

    Her mother, Barbary probably died in 1850 and her husband Abraham Morledge died in 1851.

    On the same page is her sister Rosian Momenteller Etnier, and also in the county was her sister Mary Ann Momenteller Downs.

    Her husband died in Wayne Co, IL in 1851. Her brother Felix died in 1841 and left her mother land in Wayne Co, IL. Maybe he had gone there to see about it or maybe he moved his whole family there to claim the land. If so, Barbary doesn?t seem to have stayed in Wayne Co, IL.

    On the 1855 census of Wayne Co, IL, there is:
    John Morlan 40-49, wife and 5 children
    Aaron Morlan

    Can?t find her in 1860. In 1860 her sister Lucetta?s husband, John Lindesmith, wrote a letter to the Downs family inviting them to come to Illinois. They evidently did before 1870, and perhaps the Morledge family went with them, too. Two of the Morledge sons went for sure: John & Eli (Barbary?s stepson). Barbary stayed close to her two sisters, Lucetta Lindesmith and Mary Ann Downs.

    She prob died bef 1870, maybe in Fayette Co, IL. Her son John was living with his half-brother Eli Morledge in 1870. When her sister Lucetta died in 1878 her obit listed only one sister alive, which would have been Mary Ann.

    Son, John was living with his cousin Jerry Lindesmith, in 1880 in Marion Co, IL and he was again with the Lindesmiths in 1889 in Galena, KS, so the family must have remained close.
