From an unpublished manuscript written by Verna Belsly in the 1980-90s.

"A church was built on one corner of the farm. Dad (Red Joe's grandson Joseph) donated the ground for it and a cemetery started there. I was too small to remember. I've tried to find out the date, but so far have not been able to get that information. Rev Strubhar of Washington Mennonite Church would come every few weeks and have a Sunday eve service and some of the Protestant families nearby became members. Hattie Goehring and I stood up when the invitation was given and sometime later there must have been around six of us who were baptized, but for communion we always went to the Washington church that was a mile east of Washington where the Pleasant View School now stands. In our little church we had S.S. and I recall at least one program--Children's Day, I presume. Later on, possibly after we moved to Washington, the church was sold and only the cemetery remains. "Red Joe" and his two wives had originally been buried in a little cemetery 1/4 mile further north, so their remains were transferred to the one where the church stood. There were just bones, and those of both wives were put in one container and their tombstone has the name of only the second wife. We knew the first wife was a Schrock but it was later revealed her first name was Barbara. She was the mother of "Red Joe's" only child, Christian, who was my Grandpa and my Dad's father. As mentioned, the second wife was Barbara Engel and I told my Father I thought she looked cross, but he said she was very kind so she must have been a good mother to little Christian who didn't remember his real Mother. What caused his Mother's death is not known. I heard several people died from cholera so perhaps she was a victim."

John settled in German Township, Fulton Co., OH. By 1863, he owned a 120-acre farm with a log cabin near the Williams County line, close to his home church…in his later life, John suffered from senility, and became more and more difficult…..to care for….his family institutionalized John at the Toledo State Hospital, where he died less than a year later.

Floral Grove Cemetery is located southeast of West Unity. From West Unity, take State Rt. 191 south to County Road K. Turn east. The cemetery is located just past County Road 21. The Cemetery flanks three sides of the German Methodist Episcopal Church, which was built in 1869. An earlier frame church was built in 1851, and there were three burials before that time. A son of Jacob Pettit, and a son and daughter of Benjamin Combs, in 1850. The oldest tombstones are now broken and very hard to read, or not legible at all. The cemetery is well maintained and still used. The church itself is no longer used, but is open to visitors, during the summer daylight hours.

Hi Donna,
I guess I'll start where your tree ends, at Catherine Rinkenberger.  Her first husband (as you helped me figure out!), was the first Joseph Schrock.  They had a daughter named Anne in Oct. of 1851, in Tazewell, Ill.  She married at a very young age, about 15, to a Jacob Steiner, who came from Rheinland Bayern area of Germany.  In 1880, they lived in Fond du Lac and had Joseph, Susan, Elizabeth, Katie & Caroline, ranging in age from 13 to 1.  Caroline Steiner was my g.g. grandma.  She married a man named John Henry Steinbrenner who apparently came from Germany.  They lived for a bit in McLean county and moved to St. Paul, MN.   In 1920, they had children Clarence, Catherine, Mary, Julia, Caroline, Edward & Raymond, ranging in age from 20 to 2.  Catherine was my g. grandmother.  She married a man named Herman Kehl who grew up in St. Paul with his parents Norbert and Lizzie (Kreischitz).  They lived in St. Paul and had four children, Herman, Marguerite, Dorothy and Carol.  Marguerite was my grandma (she passed away last year).  She married a man named Thomas Zastrow of German heritage from Stearns County, MN.  They had 12 baby boomer children, one of them my mom.  Let me know if you need any details.  Thanks so much for your help, keep in touch.

On the journey to America Jacob and his second wife were accompanied by Susanne and Anna, two daughters born to Jacob in his earlier marriage to Susanne Schertz. A son, Joseph, was born to Jacob and Elisabeth at sea, ten days before they disembarked in New Orleans. Jacob had married Elisabeth in February of 1830, only a few months before their departure. The aged Johannes lived with Jacob and Elisabeth in the community of Turquestein immediately before they emigrated. Jacob had a total of 10 children.

Peter Guth (Good) was administrator of Jacob’s estate.
