DORMYER, NEISWANDER, PLETCHER, YORDY posted by Art Grames on Friday, March 13, 1998

I am looking for information on Jacob PLETCHER Sr. and his son Jacob PLETCHER Jr. Jacob Sr. was the youngest child of Samuel PLETCHER and Elizabeth YORDY PLETCHER who came to Crawford County in 1830. Jacob Sr. was born in 1790 in Pennsylvania and died in 1870. He married Barbara NEISWANDER (1797-1870). I am not sure at what point they came to Crawford County (if at all), but as most of the rest of Samuel PLETCHER's family moved with him, I assume that Jacob Sr. did also. Jacob PLETCHER Jr. was born in June 1823 and died in 1863. He married Cyrena DORMYER in 1845. She was born 15 April 1828 in Crawford County and died in 1898. Their second child Barbara PLETCHER was born in Ohio in 1853. Sometime between 1853 and 1862 they moved to Elkhart County Indiana. My information on children of Jacob Jr. is fairly complete as is my information on Samuel PLETCHER and his brother, Henry. It is primarily the two generations of Jacob Sr. and Jacob Jr. that is fairly sketchy. I appreciate any help that anyone can give me.
