MINNICH Family

First Generation

1. Wendel1 Minnich was born in Dauphin Co., PA November 1, 1816. Wendel died May 1, 1862 in Butler Twp, Darke Co, OH, at 45 years of age.

He married Catherine Kreider in Darke Co. Ohio, 1836. Catherine was born in Medina Co, Ohio 1818. Catherine died September 17, 1905 Preble Co, Ohio, at 87 years of age. In the 1860 census Butler Twp Darke County Ohio page 53 or 28, Wendel (age 44) is recorded with Catherine (age 42), Elizabeth Conning (age 22), John Minnich (age 20), Susan (age 16), Catherine (age 14), Mary (age 10), Amanda (age 4) and Sybilla (age 1m). All births are Ohio except Wonder which is Penn.

Wendel Minnich and Catherine Kreider had the following children:

child 2 i. Anna2 Minnich was born Preble Co, Ohio 1837. Anna died 1837 Preble Co, Ohio, at less than one year of age.

child 3 ii. Elizabeth Minnich(3740) was born Preble Co, Ohio November 11, 1838. Elizabeth died before 1900 Monroe Twp, Darke Co, OH. She married twice. She married John Cunning in Darke Co. Ohio, February 22, 1857. John was born England June 18, 1823. (Additional notes for John Cunning(3741)) John died January 20, 1859 at 35 years of age. (See John Cunning for the continuation of this line.) She married John M Ditmer in Darke Co. Ohio, August 24, 1862. John was born Montgomery Co, Ohio August 4, 1834. John was the son of George Ditmer Sr and Catherine Fryman. (See John M Ditmer for the continuation of this line.) In the 1860 census Butler Twp Darke County Ohio page 53 or 28, Elizabeth Conning (age 22) is recorded with her family since her husband is deceased. Since we see no Conning children, I have to wonder is Mary and Anna are Ditmer children?
