Correction (1996)
The 110 yr old man was not George Christopher at this time, it is not known for sure who he was. Ulrich Neuswanger (Niswonger) was the father of Joseph, Sr. Catherina Seabaugh was really Katherina Statler. The dtr. of Peter Statler, Sr. She died June 13, 1821 and Joseph died in 1833. They are buried in the Old Niswonger Cemetery.
