Jaye Drummond and Jim Andris: 5th Harth Cousins
In October of 2000 I received a fascinating e-mail from Jaye Drummond. I hope he won't mind my quoting the genealogically relevant portions of his communication:
"I have read the account of your trip to Europe posted on your website with great interest, as I am also descended from Theobald Harth and Katharina Nau of Selchenbach and Washington Co., OH.
"I am descended from two, yes count them, TWO of their children: Elisabetha Harth Seyler (1831-1884) and Ludwig Harth (1844-1910). Ludwig's son Charles married Elisabetha's granddaughter (Charles and his wife were my great grandparents).
"My branch(es) of the family moved to Lawrence Co., OH, in 1865. Also, another of the siblings, Daniel Harth (1835-1903) also moved to Lawrence Co. in 1865 after he finished four years in the Union Army."
Jaye writes that his reading of the Manfred Harth genealogy on my website also pushed his genealogy back much further, too.
