Name Meaning & Origin

Cemetery records

Census records

  • Census, United States, Ohio, Wayne County, Chester Township, 1880]]

Emmigration and Immigration

  • Joseph Eberhart emigrated to the United States from France in 1840. He applied for a declaration on intent during the September Term of 1850 and became a naturalized citizen in November 1852. There is a Valentine Carry who became a naturalized citizen in February 1847. He emigrated from France to the United States in 1840. In September 1852, there is an Augustus Carry, native of France, becoming naturalized. I wonder if Valentine and Augustus Carey are related to Catherine Carey who married Joseph Eberhart. I did not pursue any research on the Carry/Carey line.

Land records

  • Joseph and Catherine sold their land to John and Catherine Eberhart Whitman in 1874. I believe John Philips Eberhart may have been deceased by them but I cannot verify this information. He seems to disappear.
