I recently connected to information showing the possibility that my grt-Grandmother's grandparents were Ludwig and Maria Elizabeth (Miller) Weyer, York County, Pa. Their son, Martin, was her father. Martin also had a brother, Samuel Weyer. She was Catherine Weyer. Believe her siblings were: Sara b. 1820, Elizabeth (married a Hall); Polly married l. Scoville and 2nd Schumaker- lived Stark Co., Ohio (where my Grt-Grandmother first married Samuel Lear); Philip (lived Seymour, Ohio); Caroline (Married Smith- lived Coshocton, Ohio); Solomon D. 1864 leaving Widow and one son. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Virginia,
Although Ludwig is not part of my line, I think that I can help you. According to the church record's of Quickel's Lutheran Church, Conewago Township, York County, Pennsylvania, Martin Weier, son of Ludwig and Maria Elisabeth Weier, was born on 3 April, 1788 and baptized on 6 April 1788. In the same church records they list the following baptism records for children of Martin and Catharine Weyer: Sara Weyer b. 19 Mar 1820 bpt. 30 Apr 1820, Cath. Weyer b. 25 Jun 1822 bpt. 20 Apr 1823 and Caroline Weyer b. 2 Jan 1824 bpt 29 Feb 1824. There are no other children listed in the available surviving church records. Virtually no other mention of Martin is found in the York County records except that on 13 June 1835, Martin Weyer, of Conewago Township, and Catherine his wife signed over her share of her father's estate to her brother Joshua Fetrow. Her father was listed as Phillip Fetrow. Martin's father in most research is referred to as Ludwig, Jr. because his parents were Ludwig Weyer and Anna Barbara Fink. Ludwig Sr. and my immigrant ancestor, Johannes Andreas Weyer both immigrated to York County from Germany around 1750. So far no one has established any connection between the two. They did originate from different parts of Germany. Ludwig Sr. is well documented and I can give you more on Ludwig Jr., including his Revolutionary War service, if you are interested. Ludwig Jr. also had a son Andreas born 1786, Ludwig born 1790, Michael born 1794, Samuel born 1797, Phillip born 1800 and Johan Adam born 1802. If you wish to discuss this more it would probably be easier to communicate with me directly at AJWEYER@aol.com. I would be glad to assist you in any way possible. I hope that you find this useful.

What a joy to find your posting. My g-g-g-g-grandfather was Ludwig Weyer, of York Co. PA married to Maria Elizabeth Miller. His son Philip is my g-g-g-grandfather, who had a son Seneca, (moved to MI)who had a son Leroy and had my gandfather, Guy. Somewhere along the way the spelling of the name was changed to Wire. I would love to here from you as I am very interested in knowing a much as I can about the Wire's. I would be glad to share what I have with you.

Hi! Well, I would be glad to give you what I have on my family because I just recently found my Grt-Grt-Grandmother's connection to Ludwig. She was Catherine Weyer, whose parents were Martin Catherine (Fetrow) Weyer. He was the son of Ludwig, Jr. I have limited information on them - am hoping to fill more in! I do have a picture of my Grt-Grt Grandmother! Will be glad to share what I have to put any of it together! Hope to hear from you! Ginny in Florida VBasford@aol.com

Virginia: So glad to see you message. I have researched these Weyers for 35 years, and am still going at it. My ancestor was Samuel, brother to Martin. They all left Conewago tnp, York County in 1840, and Samuel and Philip went to Trumbull County, Ohio. Samuel died withere about 1833-5m and his widow Catherine Smith, who had a little boy, Jacob, married George Hake there in 1835. They moved to Grant County Wisconsin about 1854, and Jacob moved on the Iowa . These Weyers were in Germany generations as refugees from the low countries, and that is the area I am now searching for them, in Belgium, N. France, and Southern Holland in the mid 1500's They were an important part of the beginning of the Dutch Reformation, took part in the iconoclasts o 1566-67, and gled to Frankfurt and Frankenthal in the 1560's and later. Always seemed to live along the Rhine cities, or on the Neckar River. Do contant me. Dorothy

Have been researching these descendants of Ludwig, Ludwig Weyer of York Co, conewago typ, Pa for 35 years. Believe I have the German link to these. The weyers were Flemish and Dutch way back in the 1500's and the earliest of the thenbeginning DutchReformed Faith . Many had been Roman Catholic priests who left their order to be ministers of the new faith of Calvin.. The records of them are hard to find, but the listof Martyrs holds several of them. Many fled to England 1566-67, and later to Frankfurt, Frankenthal, Heidelberg, etc. A fabulous heroic story of our ancestors. Will share what I know. Have several indexes of names. Dorothy

Saw your post on the Weyer/ Wire families of York County, PA.
My ggg-grandfather was Joseph Weier and recent research indicates that Ludwig Weier was his ancestor but I haven't been able to make the connection. Joseph was born in Conewago Township about 1811, so I assume there would be one or two generations between Joseph and Ludwig, Sr. Have you any information about Joseph that you would be willing to share? Please reply here or contact me at nlks44@pa.net
Thanks

Hi,
Although I am not the expert in the Ludwig family I do have the preliminary list of children and some grandchildren. I certainly would be glad to share what I have with you. I first have to figure out whether any of that information is in my laptop or if it is retained in one of my files at home. I will contact you directly at your email address and if you wish to contact me directly mine is AJWEYER@aol.com

Thank you so much for this post. I am beginning my search for my history. I heard that my family had a Revolutionary War veteran. I am in my tenth year of service to our country in the Air Force. I would like to join the Daughters of the American Revolution. I would also like to build my family tree to pass on to my children. If you would not mind sharing any information you have, I would be grateful.
